Roy Moore continues to deny mounting allegations

Roy Moore continues to deny mounting allegations

The president's tweet provided a reminder that during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump faced multiple credible allegations of sexual misconduct - and was elected anyway.

As Carlson has pointed out, the issue of sexual harassment and assault aren't exclusive to one party, nor are they to one industry or country.

Numerous women had accused him of sexual assault or harassment.

Franken apologized and supported an ethics committee investigation into his actions.

The question facing McConnell now is whether he can rein in the committee and prevent it from looking beyond Franken and Moore into Trump's allegations.

Some responded to Trump's tweets by citing the allegations against the president.

They also serve a distinct political goal: expanding the focus from alleged sexual actions by a Republican candidate to Democrats as well, effectively making the topic of sexual harassment a bipartisan liability.

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

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday that Trump finds the accusations againt Moore "very troubling" but thinks "the people of Alabama should make the decision on who their next senator should be".

Real Time host Bill Maher on Friday used his monologue to defend Minnesota Senator Al Franken, who earlier this week became the latest politician to be accused of sexual harassment. "Or, 'That's why you never see Lesley until February.' Or, 'When she passes out, I put her in various positions and take pictures of her'".

Hillary, 70, the former Democratic presidential nominee who past year lost the White House race to Trump, 71, said that Democratic Senator Al Franken has apologised for his reported sexual misconduct and his willingness for a probe "is the kind of accountability I'm talking about".

Franken's accuser, Leeann Tweeden, alleged that the SNL alum forcibly kissed her during a USO tour back in 2006.

But the strike against Franken indicated a more political rationale.

The second appeared to refer to a skit Franken had discussed while working on "Saturday Night Live" that involved drugging and raping CBS reporter Lesley Stahl. "Donald Trump calls his accusers liars, threatens to sue them, did long riffs at his rallies where he would say that they were too ugly for him to assault". The reference was included in a 1995 NY magazine article. Moore dismissed the allegations as "lies and smears", though many Republicans called for him to drop out of the senatorial race.

While Trump sees an opening to make life more hard for Democrats, it is also true that Republicans' internal politics make his delving further into the Moore race complicated.
