Mitch McConnell Calls for Review of Franken Allegations, No Call for His Removal

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate sexual assault allegations against Senator Al Franken (D-MN) on Thursday. Unlike the recent allegations targeted towards Alabama Judge Roy Moore, McConnell did not call for Franken to “step aside.”

In a statement, McConnell called the allegations against Franken “credible”, yet did not name Franken by name or call for the senator to resign:

“As with all credible allegations of sexual harassment or assault, I believe the Ethics Committee should review the matter."

Since he is not sending his wrath on Franken shows he is not supporting the Republican agenda. He sends his wrath upon accusations of wrong doing against a candidate but not on proof and admitting acts of wrong doings against a sitting Politian. The ethics committee is a false front of look we are doing something when they have never expelled or found anyone from the swamp guilty. That by paying out 15 million tax dollars without conviction proves cover up. Those involved should have been made to pay and expelled.

Here is what is wrong with the Republican Party. Mitch is long on decisions about sexual abuse as he is on other issues regarding the Democrats. Republicans from top to bottom must stick together and take a stand on Franken, unless they are afraid of their own sins. Hmmm, Leaves room for thought.
