Those who thought that Democrats forcing Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) to resign over sexual assault allegations without due process was a ploy to try to force President Donald Trump from office, go the the head of the class.
Freshman Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Thursday joined a growing number of Democrat senators calling on Trump to resign over unproven accusations of sexual assault. Harris made her call during an interview with Politico, which tweeted about the interview, “. @SenKamalaHarris tells us @realDonaldTrump should resign over sex harassment accusations ‘in the best interest of the country’”

CNN published a list Thursday morning of senators calling on Trump to resign: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and independent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) who ran unsuccessfully for the 2016 Democrat presidential nomination.
Harris endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2015, expressing her “deep admiration” for the rape-enabling wife of former President Bill Clinton who formed the Bimbo Eruption Squad to discredit, intimidate and threaten women who made claims against her husband.
Harris wrote on Facebook on August 6, 2015, “I’m excited to stand with Hillary Clinton. She has fought for decades to create opportunities for California families. I have a deep admiration for her, and I know that she will be a phenomenal president. Will you join me in helping elect Hillary as our country’s first woman president?”
Harris, formerly the California attorney general who was elected in 2016 to her first term in the Senate and sworn in this year, has presidential ambitions for 2020, reportedly meeting with Hillary Clinton’s “inner circle” last summer according to Page Six.
