    5 senators call on Trump to resign over misconduct allegations

    By CRISTIANO LIMA 12/11/2017 03:31 PM EST Updated 12/11/2017 05:44 PM EST

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand called on President Donald Trump to resign over allegations of sexual misconduct on Monday, the latest of five lawmakers in the chamber to do so.

    “President Trump should resign,” Gillibrand said during an interview on CNN. “These allegations are credible; they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking.”

    The New York Democrat added that if Trump did not “immediately resign,” Congress “should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”

    The remarks came on the heels of similar calls by Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), all of whom urged the president to either step down following the announced resignation of Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) over sexual harassment allegations.

    After an explosive tape was unearthed last year in which Trump boasted about groping women on a hot mic while interviewing for “Access Hollywood,” more than a dozen women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against him, including claims of sexual assault and sexual abuse.

    On Monday, during a press conference in New York City, four of the women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct — Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey, Rachel Crooks and Lisa Boyne — called on Congress to investigate the allegations against the president.

    Leeds said she hoped that the “#MeToo” movement, which has inspired dozens of women to come forward with allegations of sexual impropriety against powerful men in recent months, could persuade lawmakers to take action and investigate Trump.
    Where is Republican leadership on this issue?

    why do Democrats waste their time and, frankly, credibility calling for things they know won't happen? They are a co-equal branch of our government. If they think they have the votes to remove Trump then they should go for it. Otherwise, stop making the party look stupid.

    I think this is just showboating to keep the sheeple stirred up and hopeful as the whole Russia, Russia, Russia thing fizzles.

    Republicans are gleeful that they finally have a president who would gladly allow:
    1. insurance companies not to cover children with pre-existing cancer or other life threatening diseases that cost corporations some of their precious profit.
    2. corporations to again pollute our air and water to save corporate profit while killing our kids.
    3. To cut education for non-billionaire kids so they will remain stupid enough to keep voting Republicans into office.


    and so on .....

    they don't need to engage in cheap stunts to rile the base up. They're already more engaged than they've been since Obama's first election. Trump being elected was the biggest wake up call they could have ever received.

    It's called "standing for stuff" and apparently this is what Democrats plan to run on in the future because "getting stuff done" is just too big a commitment.

    They need to be rallying around some sort of agenda with tangible goals and give voters a reason to come to the polls. It's as if they think it's better to spend your time promoting your brand than creating a worthwhile product.

    Yet they continue this daily barrage of these cheap stunts.

    Why would party do such a thing?
