Mick Mulvaney defends Pres. Trump's silence on Roy Moore

After chastising Franken's initial efforts to downplay a photo that appears to show him groping radio personality Leeann Tweeden's breasts while she sleeps, Kelly also slammed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore for joining the chorus criticizing Franken, noting that he has been accused of sexual misconduct by nine women.

One said Moore molested her when she was 14.

"For Trump and his press secretary to continue to push the false agenda that the women are liars and continue to so cavalierly defame private citizens is outrageous and improper", Stoynoff said.

"I was going to vote for him". "That they can't seem to come to terms with the reality that their president is just as guilty as Roy Moore". Luther Strange in the election, but endorsed Moore after he won the primary.

Moore has continued to deny the allegations and he says he will not drop out of the race.

Jessica Leeds, who alleges that Trump groped her on a flight in the 1980s, said she's "extremely disappointed" that punishment for Trump has stalled.

"I think that's probably the most common sense way to look at it. The timing is a little curious, but at the same time, I have no reason to disbelieve them", Ivey said.

In a resolution, the young Republicans said Moore "has yet to provide credible evidence or explanation to discredit these allegations", referring to the claims of seven women who said Moore either sexually assaulted, harassed or dated them when they were teenagers in the 1970s. "And yes, I'm proud to vote and hope every Alabamian will be proud to cast their vote", Ivey said. Susan Collins, R-Maine. "I don't know Doug Jones at all, but I've never supported Roy Moore".

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said "it is in the best interest of the country, as well as the state of Alabama, from my perspective, for Roy Moore to find something else to do". "We addressed it then", Sanders said. The Alabama Republican Party has also thrown its support behind Moore.

And speaking of political power, Alabama's Republican Gov. Kay Ivey reiterated today that she intends to set aside her misgivings and vote for Moore in next month's election to help maintain Republican control of the Senate in Washington.

McConnell has said Moore would nearly certainly face a formal ethics complaint in the Senate if he were elected.

"He has said that he thinks that the voters of Alabama should decide", Mulvaney told Andrea Mitchell on Sunday's "Meet The Press".
