Al Franken Announce He is Resign on 2nd January

Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy Regrets Calling for Franken's Resignation

Ryan promises "entitlement reform" in 2018 MORE (D-Minn.) said Wednesday that he would make the first of "a series of final speeches" before he officially resigns from the Senate following allegations of sexual misconduct. Joe Manchin and Vermont Sen.

Franken announced earlier this month that he meant to resign from the Senate after multiple women accused him of groping them without their consent.

"The most hypocritical thing I've ever seen done to a human being - and then have enough guts to sit on the floor, watch him give his speech and go over and hug him?"

"I definitely think he should not resign", Manchin told CNN on Monday.

"When I leave the Senate in a few weeks, I will continue to try to be an educated citizen and an advocate and an activist", he said.

Following his announcement that he would resign from Congress, two Democratic senators said that Franken should not have stepped down before the Senate Ethics Committee had completed its investigation into the Minnesota Democrat.

The general sentiment in the market remains one of caution and that has been reflected in margin requirements for the contracts. Cboe's bitcoin futures contract had a relatively smooth first week of trading, although volume was on the light side.

He added, "Here's a man, that all he said [was], 'Take me through the Ethics Committee".

Both were missing in the hasty call for Senator Franken's resignation.

Franken declared not long ago that he would leave from the Senate despite inappropriate behavior affirmations.

Gov. Mark Dayton confirmed last week that he'd chosen Smith to replace Franken.

Until Wednesday afternoon, Franken had not given a specific date for when he will resign. Poor Al Franken was relegated to the status of collateral damage in the desperation of his Senate Democrat colleagues to use claims of sexual harassment as a tool to expel Roy Moore, the presumptive victor of Alabama's special election to replace Jeff Sessions.
