Starting off the News Roundup today with Bernie talking taxes, impeachment & resignations on ‘Meet The Press’:
Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent, and two of his Democratic colleagues have suggested that President Donald Trump should consider resigning, after a run of sexual harassment scandals that has driven out some members of Congress.
Sen. Al Franken “felt it proper for him to resign,” Sanders said in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday morning, referring to the Democrat from Minnesota. “Here you have a president who has been accused by many women of assault, who says on a tape that he assaulted women. He might want to think about doing the same.”
Sanders’ comment, which built on a tweet he’d sent last week, came after Democratic Sens. Jeff Merkley, Ore., and Cory Booker, N.J., suggested that the “#MeToo moment” should prompt another look at the women who accused Trump of sexual harassment during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“The president should resign because he certainly has a track record with more than 17 women of horrific conduct,” Merkley said last week in an interview for the weekday version of “Meet the Press.”
