During an interview on “The Rita Cosby Show,” Hillary Clinton defended proven sexual predator Al Franken, claiming that President Trump is worse and should be more like him.
“Look, we have a man who is accused of sexual assault sitting in the Oval Office, don’t we? And the very credible accusations against him have not been taken seriously. So I think that the Republicans have a big problem that they are going to have to address and it’s not just confined to Alabama,” she said. Except Al Franken has photographic evidence against him. Trump’s accusers all disappeared from the spotlight with no evidence.
“Look, Al Franken is a friend of mine, and I deeply regret what he did. There is no excuse for his behavior, none at all. But he has called for an investigation. He has apologized to the woman involved. Apparently, she has accepted the apology. I think we have got to recognize he agreed to an ethics investigation,” said Hillary.
“It will go to the ethics committee. It will investigate whatever the situation was, and they’ll decide what if any action should be taken based on that behavior. I think that is the appropriate process,” she said.
