Sarah Huckabee Sanders: Franken admitted wrong doing, Trump hasn't

Sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore and Minnesota Senator Al Franken have reignited the past harassment allegations against numerous politicians, including President Trump. Senators are now calling for an ethics investigation into whether Franken should keep his seat ― a probe that Franken himself says he supports. Sanders simply said: "I'll have to ask him and let you know".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders briefed reporters on Friday afternoon, following the passage of a tax reform bill by the full House on Thursday.

"I think Hillary Clinton probably should have dealt with some of her own issues before addressing this president".

"I think in one case specifically, Sen".

The press also wanted to know whether it was "hypocritical" for the president to tweet about Franken and not Moore.

"I think that's a very clear distinction", she said.

Franken has apologized after Los Angeles radio anchor Leeann Tweeden accused him of improper conduct during a USO tour, including insisting on rehearsing a kiss for a skit. Sanders has repeatedly failed to explain how Trump could establish the veracity of the accounts put forth by Moore's accusers. Multiple women have accused Moore of sexually harassing or assaulting them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.
