"Senator al franken a minnesota after many allegations of sexual misconduct but the democraticleaning public policy polling which has done just after christmas showed fifty percent of minnesota voters polled thought he should not resign well what this kind of polling tells me as a couple things one uh there are a lot of democrats were really annoyed that someone like al franken has to step down when they feel like president trump who has had multiple allegations of sexual misconduct an assault is serving in the white house and so they don't like the idea that franken would then have to step down because of that when they think he's done a decent job as a senator at least in his state what it also could do is give someone like frank in the idea that after everything comes down maybe run again uh so that's a a glimpse into the future what about the future of the secretary of state rex tillerson survived all those you know persistent whispers that he'd be out your sense of his future well here's a couple of big trips planned uh this year so you know he said that you all have been wrong before that that out your sources keep telling you that i'm going to be out and they're always wrong so we'll see what happens you know it's been a rocky 10year for sure within the state department and outside especially that big moment which he had to issue a nandan i'll denial that he had called the president a moron and he would not say that he didn't call on that just that he wasn't going to be resigning at that point so we will wind up seeing what he does and if he does leave what the maneuvers are for who replaces him and what about the republican leaders mitch mcconnell and paul ryan there are set to join president trump at camp david at the end of this week they also had the major victory on taxes but they've got the midterm elections coming up how do you see things unfolding for them where they gave themselves some breathing room by being able to pass that tax bill because if they hadn't done that you could bet president trump will be absolutely furious and looking for a different way.
