Appreciation Thread for Sen Franken!

Who asked the right question during the Sessions confirmation? Sen. Franken. Whose quick thinking caused Sessions to commit perjury about his ties to Russia during a Congressional hearing? Sen. Franken! What did Sessions' perjury about his ties to Russia cause him to do? (For those who have short attention span) It forced him to recuse himself from the federal investigation into Russia interference in a U.S. presidential election. With Sessions no longer obstructing the Department of Justice, what did the DOJ do next? They appointed a special prosecutor, Mueller.

That's right. Because Sen. Franken is fucking brilliant and dedicated and fearless, we now have an official federal investigation of the administration and Russia. Indictments are already being handed down and people are getting lawyered up and there is hope that the fiasco that was the 2016 presidential election will never happen in this country again.

Who here thinks that Sessions would have allowed a special prosecutor to be named, if he still had control of the DOJ in matters pertaining to Russia?

Sen Franken is the reason we have Special Prosecutor Mueller. I haven't forgotten it, and I know damn well that Trump, Sessions and Putin have not forgotten it.Russia hates Sen. Franken as much as I love him. If--no make then when, their scheme to take over our country fails, we will all owe one man a huge round of applause. And, I hope and pray that he is in the Senate when Trump is impeached, because you know he will ask all the right questions and say all the right things---which may be why Russia the GOP are trying so hard to get rid of him.

As to why a handful of Dems are acting against their own party's interest, maybe they are old school Dems who think that members of our party should never take their gloves off in a fight. You know, the same member of the old school who could not be bothered to try Bush and Cheney with war crimes. I believe that when our country is under attack by foreign powers with the aid of American traitors, the gloves need to come off and we need to fight back. Not very kumbaya of me, I know. But I didn't start this war.

I love you, Sen. Franken!

62. Yep. Theres just too much stink here. I smell a rat.

Two rats if you consider Tweeden. Three if you throw John Phillips in. He’s a longtime CON, just one who accentuates his youth and “respectability.” He’s run for office here in LA and failed. But his ego won’t allow him to fade gracefully into the obscurity he so richly deserves.

Unfortunately, finding one’s way into talk radio has been an EXCELLENT way to build a profile and gain more visibility, and gain cred with a movement or whatever-the-fuck they choose to call it. It worked for “Ronnie Raygun”. It’s worked again for Mike Pence.

Tweeden was an obvious fake. And the last 2 won't even show their faces.

We've seen the rethug party cheat on votes before. Now they want to get rid of one of our best representatives.

Bravo. You have summed up the Senator's role in this recent drama (or is it a comedy?) that has engulfed our country. Franken is on the right side of history-- a position that often feels damn uncomfortable at the time that said history is taking place.

20. I just emailed Sen. Schumer

and gave him a piece of my mind. This is what I said to him.

NIce job Sen. Schumer. Two accusations against Sen. Franken that are disingenuous at best and outright lies at worst. Five anonymous accusations obviously is all it took for you to throw him under the bus. What about the 36 women of the SNL team that all signed a letter of support for Sen. Franken? Real women that he spent an enormous amount of time with and not one accusation of nefarious behavior at all. What about the 14 women of his campaign and office staff that had nothing but nice things to say about how respectful he was/is to them and his attention to women's issues. Nothing Chuck? 50 real, female, direct associates of Al Franken and not one single disparaging remark. But, 5 anonymous accusations, well, that's enough for such a fair and respectable gentleman like you, isn't it? Why the hurry to get rid of Sen. Franken? Afraid he might cause a problem for your possibly new Senate buddy, Roy Moore? The Republicans are about to unleash their hit machine on everyone. Why is there no hurry to get Donald Trump to resign? If you think for a moment that there any Republican voters that give a diddly damn about this so-called 'moral high ground,' think again. Are you that obtuse or just scared you might be next if you don't play ball. Where is Sen. Franken's due process? Where is his right to confront his accusers? Where is your spine? In case you aren't aware, tonight there are thousands of people working overtime to convince Sen. Al Franken to NOT resign, myself included. We are all strongly considering leaving the Democratic Party once and for all because of people like you and the other spineless Democratic Congresspeople calling for Sen. Franken to resign based on unsubstantiated, contrived bullshit. No more support. This is a Roger Stone, Republican hit-job so obvious that any half-wit could recognize it. Well, except for you. You suck! Eat a bag of shit!

60. Sent a message to my rep

about how disappointed, disgusted and detrimental her support for Senator Franken's resignation is.

My rep is Tammy Baldwin...WI.

As to your old school Democrats not taking off the gloves, I think there were plenty of old school Dems that would do that. FDR, HST, and LBJ come to mind.

84. Al, I bought TWO signed copies of your book, *Giant of the Senate* for holiday gifts...

My first thought was, “oh, great.” But then I realized, wait a second, these gifts will be appreciated even more, just as you are right now.

Thank you so much for the untold hours you spent in the effort to make things better for all Americans. And thank you in particular for pushing back against the non-stop Republican criminality.

And Al, you will always be (no matter how tongue-in-cheek your book title may be) a true Giant of the Senate. Please keep fighting for us, in whatever you do!

86. I do NOT believe you committed sexual harassment, molestation, or assault. I've seen nothing...

to indicate that. A few claims with pics...I look at the pics & see that the pics don't support the claims. Pretty simple, really.

Unlike other accused people, Franken was very much in front of the cameras. There are tens of thousands of photos of him. Yet not one shows an improper touch?

87. And this will only open the door for more abuse allegations

Thanks to that orange piece of shit in the White House, the Pukes are going full bore on every corrupt, illegal action they can get away with because all rules are gone.

If the Democrats think by "cleaning house" they can maintain some sort of superiority, they are so fucking wrong. Pukes are ready to roll. They don't give a fuck about what the public thinks.

Dumpster suggests concentration camps? Terrific idea! Bomb all Muslim countries preemptively? No problem.

102. Hope

That he hires a P.I. to find out the goods on these women and if they were paid by the R's to get him out of there. He has been a thorn in their side. I'm sure Sessions is doing a happy dance!!
Plus if nothing else to clear his name!!
I don't understand why the photographer that took the photo of the first one did not go on every network and say it was a gag, she was in on it and thought it was funny at the time and now all of a sudden she doesn't. I bet she got paid well knowing that she has been on Fox News a lot in the past.
I'm betting the others got paid as well.
I'm going to miss him!!! He was my favorite!!

105. Thank you, Sen Franken. You were the best. It is

hard to post because it is so hurtful what they did the you. So many ironies. Someone said you should move to NY and run against Gillibrand. She attacked you and the Clintons. Remember, Hillary moved to NY to run for the Senate.

I know you love Minnesota, but I'm sure most Minnesotans would be glad you were back in the Senate. If you were re-elected, from NY or Minnesota, that wipes out those fake sex harassment gigs during your comedian years. Of course, there is still the lady who says that you put your arm around her waist, when you posed for the photo with her, which her husband took, 11ish years ago. Unbelievable! That's a big one, but no one but Gillibrand much understood that BS, and truly she used it asap to throw you over before anyone had time to figure it out...no time for due process and an investigation for you. You would be doing a huge service to our country to replace her.

You are a true patriot.
and you were our Lion of the Senate.
We love you.

Please come back.
Anyway, we wish you and your family the best in life.
