Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren would not say that Sen. Al Franken should resign over sexual misconduct allegations.


Warren was asked about the allegations during a Monday night appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” and while she said she was “disappointed” in Franken, she did not call for his resignation.

“So look, I was extremely disappointed about all of this,” the senator from Massachusetts said. “These allegations are serious and women have a right to be heard and to be listened to on this.”

“Al is going to be subjected to a hearing in the United States Senate…we have had for a long time now in the Senate, long before I got there, a bipartisan ethics committee that meets on a regular basis and he’s going to go in and answer,” Warren asserted.

Franken has been accused of forcibly kissing and groping women. TV anchor Leeann Tweeden released a photo that showed Franken grabbing her breasts while she was sleeping during a USO tour in 2006.
