[Ed. – Does ‘taking action’ translate to meekly dropping the f-bomb some more?]
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) showed up on Sixty Minutes this weekend and was happy to serve up the usual round of hints suggesting some impeachment/removal talk which is always sure to spice up any slow political news cycle. Of course, we’ve had Democrats calling for Trump to resign since before he was even sworn into office, but the reasons change from month to month. So what is it this time? Ah, yes… it’s the #MeToo movement. (The Hill)
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Sunday she believes Congress should hold President Trump accountable for the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him.
“I think he should resign, and if he’s unwilling to do that, which is what I assume, then Congress should hold him accountable. We’re obligated to have hearings,” Gillibrand said in an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes.”
Gillibrand, who was among the first to call for former Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to resign due to sexual misconduct allegations, was also one of several Democratic senators who late last year said Trump should resign due to sexual misconduct allegations that surfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign.
