Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, defended her decision to the displacement of her former colleague, Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn leads., you don’t say “regret.”

Gillibrand was asked to respond to a report published in the New Yorker on Monday we get the first sexual misconduct allegation against the Swiss franc of Leeann Tweeden.

“It only speaks about a statement, it spoke about the first… what is with the seven other allegations?” Gillibrand began.

“It was really no critical or investigative journalism or reporting on the other seven, and, of course, that caused to break me.”


The 2020 candidate claimed that all the eight accusations against the Swiss franc to be “credible” and two that have allegedly taken place, when the Swiss franc was a senator. Gillibrand also took a swipe at her Democratic colleagues mentioned in the New York report as an expression of regret for the support of the franc forced to close in the year 2018.

“I would have said, those who said seven of the senators, and the senators — the 35 senators, the pull against him — there is no price for someone who is trying to be accountable to, a powerful man who is good at his job,” Gillibrand.

“But we should have the courage to do anyway. So, no, I have no regrets.”

After we asked some mild applause from the audience, then, whether you ever support him if he ran for office in the future.


“Al Franken had every right to do what he wanted,” she said. “If he wanted to wait until his ethics Committee investigation, that is his decision.

“If he wanted to wait until his next election, his decision. My only decision was whether or not, I decided to silence me. My decision was whether or not I chose to carry his water and defend him with my silence.”
