Minnesota Democrat Al Franken announced Thursday he would resign from the Senate amid groping allegations – but maintained his innocence and blasted President Trump for bragging about 'his history of sexual assault.'
Franken was facing fresh allegations of sexual misconduct and vanishing support from fellow Democrats when he made the announcement Thursday morning from the floor of the Senate.
Franken said he will leave in 'the coming weeks' – even as he insisted the public charges he groped a slew of women were not accurate. A raft of his colleagues disagreed, coming out against him 24 hours earlier in an extraordinary effort to get him out of the chamber.
'Some of the allegations against me are simply not true. Others I remember very differently,' said Franken.
