Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer refused to answer questions regarding disgraced liberal legislator Al Franken over whether he made the right decision to resign following multiple sexual harassment allegations; dodging the question while speaking on late-night television.
The leading Democrat was speaking with comedian Stephen Colbert when he was asked to weigh-in on Franken’s recent resignation, pressed on whether it was “the right thing to do.”
“You lost one of the stars of the Democratic Party this year, one of the biggest fundraisers for the Democrats in Al Franken,” Colbert said.
“Yes,” said Schumer.
“Looking back on how that was handled, that Franken was asked to resign against his will, as you can tell from the speech he gave, before the ethics investigation was over,” Colbert added. “Do you feel now that that was the right thing to do?”
“Well, look, I am a strong believer in #metoo. Women have been abused, taken advantage of in so many different ways that I think that a strong stand in that regard is very important,” Schumer deflected. “You can look at each individual case -as you should- and people should get some protections, but I have a great deal of sympathy for the women who say this has gone on too long and we have to be really strong to fight it.”

LATE NIGHT LECTURE: Crazy Kimmel TRASHES TRUMP on 'Net Neutrality'
Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel unloaded on the Federal Communications Commission and President Trump late Thursday evening, blasting the Commander-in-Chief for “appointing this jack hole” at the FCC who recently ended “net neutrality.”
“Thanks to you, and this jack hole you appointed to run the FCC, big corporations are about to take full control of the internet”
Kimmel was delivering his opening monologue when he slammed the Trump administration for putting an end to certain sections of Obama’s net neutrality act, implemented just two years ago.
“Meanwhile the Federal Communications Commission did something absolutely despicable today, they voted to put an end to ‘Net Neutrality.’ This is the rule that says everyone gets equal access to the internet,” Kimmel ranted.
“As long as they tell us they’re doing it now, internet service providers will be allowed to slow down or block web traffic to any website or streaming service that they like, which benefits the big telecom companies and does the opposite for all of us,” he added.
“I just want to say thank you to President Trump. Thanks to you, and this jack hole you appointed to run the FCC, big corporations are about to take full control of the internet,” he concluded.

LATE NIGHT LECTURE: Hillary Defends Paying BIG BUCKS for 'Trump Dossier'
Hillary Clinton doubled-down on her campaign’s role behind the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ on Wednesday night, saying she paid big bucks to opposition research firm Fusion GPS because of their valuable “research.”
Hillary was speaking with the Daily Show’s Trevor Noah when he pressed the former presidential nominee over her financing of the debunked report.
“People say, ‘Hillary, is there a difference between your team paying for this opposition research and Donald Trump’s people working with the Russians to influence the election?’ Is there a difference?” asked Noah.
“Of course, there is. Most serious people understand that,” said Clinton. “This was research started by a Republican donor during the Republican primary and then when Trump got the nomination the people doing it came to my campaign lawyer.”
“He’s an experienced lawyer, he knows the law is, he knows what opposition research is. From my perspective, it didn’t come out before the election,” she added.
