“We addressed that then,” Sanders mentioned. “The American people I think spoke loud and clear when they elected this president.”
“Senator Franken has admitted wrongdoing and the president hasn’t; I think that’s a very clear distinction,” she continued.

Several prime Democrats and Republicans are calling for an ethics investigation into Franken’s conduct, with Franken saying he would cooperate.
