Yes they are they are just not saying anything about it yet. Why would they take out Franken now when many republicans have done way worse to keep him from running for president and to take the heat away from trump.

I don't think it's a presidential run they're worried over, because he's been very clear re: his lack of interest in running.

It's him in a Senate seat. He's really good at grilling people in Senate hearings and that pisses them off.

See: Sessions

See: DeVos

It'll be interesting to see if he survives the weekend.

And check out THE WEEK IN PICTURES: SPECIAL AL FRANKEN EDITION on Powerline. There's a classic pic of him grabbing Hillary.

I chugged a gallon of mind-bleach after being subjected to the one with Al Franken, Joe Biden, Willie, and Weiner all in one photo.

The one with Chris Christie just made me vomit.

I don't see this dramatic problem you see, but I also don't read Breitbart or watch Fox.

I do think that Trump is a hypocrite for tweeting that nonsense about it when he's been accused by over a dozen women of sexual misconduct, though. That many women, many accused him before he was even running for office, are NOT making it all up.

How ridiculous.

And, nobody cares about any of that... why, exactly?

Why, because he's been a national figure for a long time. American's have a certain sense of fair play. That's why the accusations of women against Bill Clinton were downplayed by so many people. There's something a little too opportunistic about these claims...they reek of political hit jobs and people don't like it. BTW, a lot of people feel the same way about Moore.

Grilling? You mean asking long convoluted questions?

It's far more likely the DNC is attempting to take him out IF you want to get into conspiracy theories.

As far as conspiracy theories go, there are many within the DNC that wants a female presidency before they die. That standing alone, I do not have a problem with. I can even understand it. (please, Tulsi Gabbard, run)

But if you want to go down this road, the DNC has more to gain by taking him out than the GOP.
