Franken, Moore assault allegations dredge up accusations against Trump

Evidently, the president managed to pry himself away from his work to weigh in on the sexual-misconduct allegations surrounding Sen. He insisted the allegations were false - the official White House position is that each of the accusers are liars - though some of those women accused him of actions Trump boasted about on the "Access Hollywood" recording. Tweeden also said Franken "put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth" during a rehearsal for a USO show they were doing together.

In a pair of tweets Thursday night, Trump spotlighted the accusations against Franken, saying the photo "speaks a thousand words".

The state treasurer after declining to comment for days tweeted Thursday: "I agree with Ivanka Trump".

Thankfully, Twitter was right there to call out the president's painfully un-self-aware response, reminding Trump about that time he was recorded bragging about grabbing women "by the pussy".

When asked by a reporter why the allegations against Trump don't require an investigation but Franken's do, Sanders said, "the American people spoke pretty loud and clear when they elected him president".

In yet another twist in the sexual abuse saga embroiling the USA, former U.S. president George H.W. Bush is facing new allegations from a MI woman who said he touched her inappropriately while he was in office at an event in April 1992, CNN reported on Thursday.

Victor Moses should be back next week - Antonio Conte
This is the most important thing". "Manchester City are playing very well but I think we can fight for the title until the end". The Chelsea wide-man has not played since going off injured during last month's defeat against his former club Crystal Palace.

Mr Franken has apologised and said he does not remember that second incident in the same way, but he now faces a Senate ethics investigation that could see him fined, stripped of committee posts or even expelled.

With the nation confronting revelations of sexual impropriety by powerful men in entertainment and politics, Trump is an inconsistent as well as an unlikely critic of alleged offenders.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway claimed on Friday that Trump has remained silent on Moore because he was in Asia when the story broke and it wasn't new when he returned to Washington. Time after time, he said Trump needed to say nothing more and said the solution rested on the voters who would decide Moore's fate. "He still firmly believes that", Sanders told reporters on Thursday, noting, "This is a decision people of Alabama need to make, not the President".

"Can you tell us whether the President believes the women who are making these allegations against Roy Moore?".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants President Trump's help to contain the damage in the Alabama Senate race.

Meanwhile, 14 women have come forward to accuse Trump of groping, harassing or sexually assaulting them during his career as a real estate developer. Even though a number of Republicans on Capitol Hill have called for Moore to step aside, the president has said little himself.
