as at least 23 of the Minnesota Democrat’s colleagues called for him to step down The calls came as another woman a former Democratic congressional aide accused Franken of trying to forcibly kiss her in 2006 “I expect that Senator Franken will announce his resignation tomorrow” Wyden said in a tweet “It is the right thing to do given this series of serious allegations” The calls for Franken to resign were sparked by a group of Senate Democratic women who came out nearly simultaneously on Wednesday urging him to leave the Senate Franken who has been accused of groping and forcibly kissing a number of women responded by saying that he would make an announcement Thursday “While Senator Franken is entitled to have the Ethics Committee conclude its review I believe it would be better for our country if he sent a clear message that any kind of mistreatment of women in our society isnt acceptable by stepping aside to let someone else serve” Sen Kirsten Gillibrand wrote in a lengthy Facebook post earlier on Wednesday Throughout the afternoon calls for his resignation only continued to grow Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement on Wednesday that while the Senate Ethics Committee is currently investigating Franken “it now appears Senator Franken has lost the support of his colleagues and most importantly his constituents” McConnell continued “I do not believe he can effectively serve the people of Minnesota in the US Senate any longer” Notably Franken’s fellow Minnesota Sen Amy Klobuchar was not among those calling for his resignation on Wednesday afternoon Instead her office released a statement indicating that the two had spoken earlier that day "Senator Klobuchar personally spoke with Senator Franken this morning” the statement from Ben Hill Klobuchar’s Minnesota State Director read “As has been reported he will be making an announcement tomorrow morning" The floodgates were opened by the a group of Democratic women in the Senate including Gillibrand Claire McCaskill of Missouri Kamala Harris of California Patty Murray of Washington Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin Mazie Hirono of Hawaii and Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire who led the calls for Franken to resign According to a Democratic aide women in the Senate have been in contact for a while about what Sen Frankens path forward should be But on Wednesday they decided that enough was enough It was time to call on him to step aside “Ive struggled with this decision because hes been a good Senator and I consider him a friend” Hawaii Sen Mazie Hirono said of Franken in a statement issued late Wednesday morning “But that cannot excuse his behavior and his mistreatment of women” On Twitter Sen Claire McCaskill wrote simply: “Al Franken should resign” Al Franken should resign Claire McCaskill (@clairecmc) December 6 2017 Sens Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire and Kamala Harris of California joined in too It is clear that Al Franken has engaged in a pattern of egregious and unacceptable behavior toward women He should resign Sen Maggie Hassan (@SenatorHassan) December 6 2017 Sexual harassment and misconduct should not be allowed by anyone and should not occur anywhere I believe the best thing for Senator Franken to do is step down Kamala Harris (@SenKamalaHarris) December 6 2017 As did more of their colleagues I believe it is best for Senator Franken to resign Sen Tammy Baldwin (@SenatorBaldwin) December 6 2017 Im shocked and appalled by Senator Frankens behavior Its clear to me that this has been a deeply harmful persistent problem and a clear pattern over a long period of time Its time for him to step aside Senator Patty Murray (@PattyMurray) December 6 2017 Sexual harassment is unacceptable I believe Senator Franken should do the right thing and resign Sen Debbie Stabenow (@SenStabenow) December 6 2017 By noon their male colleague had begun to express similar sentiments Sens Joe Donnelly of Indiana Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Sherrod Brown of Ohio released statements calling for Frankens resignation as did the chairman of the Democratic National Committee Tom Perez "I agree with my colleagues who have stepped forward today and called on Senator Franken to resign We cant just believe women when its convenient" Casey tweeted "I have listened to them I have listened to my female colleagues to women I work with and women in my life And I agree the time has come for Senator Franken to step aside" wrote Brown who also said he the Senate Ethics Committee should continue to investigate Franken "He is entitled to the investigation And their findings will be important to informing changes that are needed in Congress" Brown wrote Perez tweeted: "Sen Al Franken should step down Everyone must share the responsibility of building a culture of trust and respect for women in every industry and workplace and that includes our party" Sens Debbie Stabenow of Michigan and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota also weighed in”Sexual harassment is unacceptable I believe Senator Franken should do the right thing and resign” Stabenow said We must commit to zero tolerance which is where I believe we as a country and Congress should be and that means Senator Franken should step down Full statement: pictwittercom/4qrZB0mBTo Sen Heidi Heitkamp (@SenatorHeitkamp) December 6 2017 Sens Maria Cantwell of Washington Dianne Feinstein of California Patrick Leahy of Vermont Dick Durbin of Illinois Ed Markey of Massachusetts Jeff Merkley of Oregon among others have also called for his resignation The flurry of statements came at a pivotal moment in the country and the Congress A groundswell of women across the US have begun speaking out in unison to call attention to their own experiences with sexual harassment and assault and to hold perpetrators accountable The women honored as TIME’s 2017 Person of the Year have been among those leading the charge Hirono cited the TIME choice which was announced earlier on Wednesday in her statement Several members of Congress have been among the accused; on Tuesday Democratic Rep John Conyers retired from the House of Representatives as more women opened up about sexual harassment they said they experienced at his hands In her Facebook post Gillibrand said said the current “moment of reckoning” is bigger than ” any one industry any one party or any one person” “The pervasiveness of sexual harassment and the experience women face every day across America within the existing power structure of society has finally come out of the shadows It is a moment that we as a country cannot afford to ignore” she wrote The calls for Franken’s resignation came as another woman a former Democratic congressional aide came forward and accused him of forcibly kissing her in 2006 The woman claims Franken told her it was his “right as an entertainer" after she rejected his assault Franken denied the allegation telling Politico in a statement: "This allegation is categorically not true and the idea that I would claim this as my right as an entertainer is preposterous I look forward to fully cooperating with the ongoing ethics committee

Some charter schools promote aggressive policies of strict discipline, stepped up his dire warnings about the caravans, " she said.Currently the majority of the Senate which is our upper House and the most powerful of the two legislative Houses is elected by a slight minority By 2040 demographers predict that a meagre one-third of Americans will elect two-thirds of this powerful institution This is because Americans are fleeing to coastal states where jobs are and are likely to remain File image of US president Donald Trump AP Equally young persons who bristle at xenophobia homophobia misogyny and other bigotry that are common in their rural and peri-rural hometowns are flocking to America’s more cosmopolitan locales Those left behind in the ‘red states’ are the most regressive Americans most of whom vote Republican While many democracies with a bicameral legislature provide for equal representation of the federating units in the upper House these have little power In the United States the Senate holds the most significant powers to appoint justices to the Supreme Court and federal judiciary as well as to confirm Cabinet picks The anti-Democrat Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell abused his power in the last term of the Barack Obama administration to prevent any of the president’s judicial appointments from coming to a vote Consequently Trump has had the opportunity to appoint more than 100 judicial officials who have been vetted by the noxious Federalist Society to ensure that the nominees oppose a woman’s right to choose support pro-business interests and back the tycoon’s autocratic tendencies Appallingly McConnell declared that no judicial confirmations shall be made by a president unless his (sorry ladies) party also controls the Senate Second the same demographic future also ensures the dominance of the Republican Party in the selection of the president The United States is not a direct democracy but an indirect democracy through the system of the electoral college which was devised to appease slave states after the Civil War The number of electoral college votes for each state is equal to the number of congressional representatives Astonishingly most states award all the electoral votes to the winning presidential candidate: Only Maine and Nebraska have a variation of ‘proportional representation’ This system of ‘winner takes all’ helps explain why presidents like Trump lose the popular vote but become commander-in-chief by winning the electoral college Third the House of Representatives is the only body where some modicum of competition remains in principle In practice these races are not competitive In 2016 only 20 percent of the congressional races were competitive This is due to gerrymandering selective sorting of residents into ideologically coherent neighbourhoods and myriad outright racist efforts by the Republican Party to prevent people of colour from voting Fourth is the courts Many Americans who are disgusted by the tyranny of this regime offer the Panglossian platitudes that our "courts will protect us" The Supreme Court has been remade by Trump Most observers expect this Republican court to overturn the Roe versus Wade ruling which protects a woman’s right to choose eviscerate hard-earned protections for LGBTQI community rubber-stamp Trump’s abuse of power and further erode protections for American consumers and natural resources Our courts will not protect the freedom of that majority of Americans who are not white cis males Fifth the United States lacks an independent election commission or any dedicated body that can evaluate malfeasance in a race declare results null and void and order a do-ever This job falls to the courts and requires aggrieved parties to muster financial resources and file suit — America’s anemic Federal Election Commission only monitors campaign finances To make all of these structural outrages all the more discomfiting the ‘red states’ labour under the delusion that the ‘blue states’ live off them — nothing is further from the truth Blue states are the economic engines of the United States: They literally subsidise the red state residents They are so rich they can literally import their arugula The red states have human development indicators that are more on par with developing nations than our developed peers America’s most economically productive Americans are the majority; yet we are ruled by a regressive minority There are no easy remedies to resuscitate America’s choking democracy The demographic shifts will not be halted because the people go where the opportunities are Surely a shift of power between the two Houses of the Congress would restore some modicum of democracy as would eliminating the anachronistic electoral college But why would the Republicans ever consider actual democratic reforms when the current tyranny secures their interests — perhaps in perpetuity If the Republicans won’t desist from gerrymandering and robbing people of colour of their franchise this treasonous party will surely resist constitutional change to rebalance power Another welcome innovation would be introducing term limits to Supreme Court justices’ tenures instead of the current system of lifetime appointments Both parties will likely resist this change because they view such life-time appointments as part of a president’s legacy Without serious constitutional reforms America has no hope of becoming a democracy Americans cannot expect this to change with ‘get out the vote’ initiatives What is needed is massive civil disobedience until these changes are enacted If Americans are unwilling to mobilise to secure these changes they deserve this tyranny which will continue to masquerade as democracy The

YANGON (Reuters) – A judge in Myanmar declared on Wednesday that a witness who said two Reuters reporters accused of possessing state secrets were framed by police was credible dealing a blow to the prosecution in what has become a landmark press freedom case In what defence lawyers said was a key ruling in favour of the two reporters the judge accepted the testimony of Police Captain Moe Yan Naing who said a senior officer had ordered police to "trap" one of the two journalists arrested in December Defence lawyer Khin Maung Zaw said the judge ordered police to bring Moe Yan Naing to the next hearing on May 9 after a police officer told the court he was not present because he was sentenced last week to one year in prison for violating the Police Disciplinary Act "We need to question him more" Judge Ye Lwin told Police Captain Myo Lwin one of the officers who had escorted the two journalists to the courthouse at the end of the proceedings Prosecutors had called Moe Yan Naing to testify against Wa Lone 32 and Kyaw Soe Oo 28 but last week asked the court to declare him an unreliable witness after the account he gave about the reporters being "set up" appeared to undermine their case "Today the court has proved itself as a court of justice" defence lawyer Khin Maung Zaw told reporters at the end of the hearing adding that the ruling was "a big step" because Moe Yan Naing’s testimony supported the accounts given by the reporters Lead prosecutor Kyaw Min Aung did not respond to a request for comment after the hearing Myanmar’s civilian government spokesman Zaw Htay declined to comment citing the ongoing proceedings Police spokesman Colonel Myo Thu Soe said he was not aware of the events in the court and declined to comment As he left court Wa Lone told reporters: "The injustice that they did to us will be revealed soon" Follow latest updates on detained reporters here https://wwwreuterscom/subjects/myanmar-reporters "NOT UNRELIABLE" The court in Yangon has been holding hearings since January to decide whether the Reuters journalists will be charged under the colonial-era Official Secrets Act which carries a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison At the time of their arrest the reporters had been working on an investigation into the killing of 10 Rohingya Muslim men and boys in a village in western Myanmar’s Rakhine state The killings took place during an army crackdown that United Nations agencies say sent nearly 700000 people fleeing to Bangladesh Moe Yan Naing said in his testimony that he had been interviewed by Wa Lone in November about police operations in Rakhine Defence and prosecution lawyers made legal arguments in front of the judge a week ago on a motion filed by prosecutors following Moe Yan Naing’s April 20 testimony Prosecutors argued that the police captain had told a different story to investigators when he was arrested They also said Moe Yan Naing held a grudge against the police authorities because he was facing charges Judge Ye Lwin ruled on Wednesday that the police captain’s testimony did not contradict earlier statements made to the investigators at the time of his own arrest The judge said Moe Yan Naing was a member of the police force so "it is not suitable to consider him as an unreliable witness" Moe Yan Naing was arrested on Dec 12 the same day Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were detained by police Moe Yan Naing told the court that earlier that day he had witnessed Police Brigadier General Tin Ko Ko order a lance corporal to arrange a meeting with Wa Lone at a restaurant in Yangon that night and hand over "secret documents" to entrap him Reuters has been unable to contact Tin Ko Ko for comment A police spokesman said after Moe Yan Naing’s testimony that the brigadier general "has no reason to do such a thing" The courtroom was packed on Wednesday with diplomats from France the European Union the United States and Australia among those attending (Reporting By Shoon Naing and Yimou
