Sarah Sanders on sexual misconduct: Franken admits to it but Trump doesn't

Sarah Sanders on sexual misconduct: Franken admits to it but Trump doesn't

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is set to take questions from reporter in the White House briefing room Friday afternoon, as the president has yet to speak publicly about GOP U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.

She responded with trademark obtuseness.

Sanders said that Trump should not be investigated because "in one case specifically, Sen. I think that's a very clear distinction", Sanders said. Al Franken (D-Minn.) are different from those President Donald Trump has faced because Trump has denied any wrongdoing. Senators are now calling for an ethics investigation into whether Franken should keep his seat ― a probe that Franken himself says he supports. Reporters wanted to know if it was fair to suggest a similar investigation into Trump's past behavior, considering several women accused him of sexual misconduct - allegations which surfaced on the campaign trail a year ago.

The White House says the Senate is acting appropriately by reviewing complaints against Democratic Sen.

The press also wanted to know whether it was "hypocritical" for the president to tweet about Franken and not Moore.

Franken, who on Thursday was accused of kissing and groping anchor Leeann Tweeden in 2006 without her consent, has issued an apology. "I shouldn't have done it".

The briefing began with a query about Moore and continued in that way for the first half of the meeting. Sanders added that she had not yet spoken to the president about Menendez. President Trump was accused of past sexual harassment by multiple women during the 2016 presidential campaign.
