Gillibrand Defends Call For Franken To Resign [VIDEO]

Politico reports:

“Senator Franken was entitled to whatever type of review or process he wanted,” Gillibrand said. “He could’ve stuck it out, stayed in the Senate, gone through [the] Ethics Committee’s investigation. Those were his choices, but I had to make my choice.”

Some major Democratic donors, including Susie Tompkins Buell, have expressed frustration about Gillibrand’s decision to call for Franken’s resignation. But Gillibrand said that “if there are a few powerful Democratic donors who are angry,” then “that’s on them.”
