Hyper-liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren deflected questions over whether she believes Senator Al Franken should resign after a second woman accused the lawmaker of sexual misconduct; dodging the question and saying this is an important “moment” in America.
Warren was speaking with late-night host Stephen Colbert when she was asked to weigh-in on the scandals surrounding her Democratic colleague.
“Senator Warren, let me ask you this. There’s a series of sexual scandals that have created a big national conversation about abuse of power. Al Franken has been caught up in two accusations, one of which he’s acknowledged,” said Colbert. “People are calling for Al Franken to step down, do you think he should?”
“So, look, I was just enormously disappointed about this. I knew Senator Franken long before he was Senator Franken,” said Warren.
“These allegations are serious and women have a right to be heard and listened to on this. Al’s going to be subjected to a hearing in the United States Senate. We’ve had for a long time now a bipartisan Ethics Committee that meets on a regular basis and he’s going to go in and answer,” she added.
“This is a moment in America, as I see it. The question is whether this is a big moment where there’s a big flash and nothing really changes. Or is this a moment where there’s real change?” she asked.
Watch Warren dodge the question above.
