"early start" continues right now with the latest allegations against al franken. 4 -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com ? my mind was reeling. i just wanted to rinse my mouth out. >> democratic senator al franken facing sexual harassment allegations. president now weighing in with a tweet bound to raise questions about allegations of his own past. alabama senate candidate roy moore suffering a hit in the polls after eight women come forward with allegations against him. white house now responding even as the president stays silent. with all due respect, i get sick and tired. >> regular order, mr. chairman. order. >> and a shouting match in the senate, as lawmakers battle it out over tax reform.
monumental vote in the house would ordinarily be our lead story, but not the case today. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> i'm christine roman, it is friday, november 17, 5:00 a.m. in the east. dealing with sexual harassment turmoil. a parade of democrats joining calls for a full ethics investigation of al faranken. the minnesota senator has admitted to kissing and groping a woman without her consent in 2006 when he was still a comedian and talk show host. >> news anchor lee yan tweeden says in 2006, franken wrote a skit where he kissed her. tweeden spoke out last night in the first tv interview. >> he just mashes his mouth to my lips, and, you know, like wet, and he puts his tongue in my mouth and my reaction, it was just sort of a -- you know, i
pushed his chest away with my hands and i'm like if you ever do that to me again -- i was so angry. i was in disbelief, really. and i just sort of -- my hand -- to this day, i talk about it and my hand clenches into a first because i think my initial reaction was that i wanted to hit him. >> that incident, of course, was the rehearsal for the skit that franken repeatedly pressed on tweeden. franken later posed for this photo where he seems to globe tweeden while she sleeps. >> franken releasing two statements. the first thing i want to do is apologize to lee ann, to everyone else who was part of that. to everyone i represent and to everyone who counts on me to be an ally and supporter and champion of women. i respect boom. i don't respect men to don't. the fact into my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel
ashamed. leeann tweeden accepted the apolo apology calling it heart felt. >> i honestly do believe him. you know, i wasn't -- i wasn't waiting for an apology from him. but i gladly accept it, and thank you. >> late last night, president trump weighed in on the franken revelation seeming to ignore both the roy moore allegations and history of allegations against him. in a tweet, the president said quote, the al frankenstein, misspelled. is really bad. with are do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 while she sleeps. >> let's bring in a cnn contributors. columnist for the "new york post" joining us buy skype from pittsburgh. good morning. the parade of creeps seems to be the head line of the past few weeks, bad behavior by men in power. is there a risk here for the
president from talking about al frankenstein when the president has half a dozen accusers at least for unwanted advances, and there's more than a picture. there's a tape of the president talking about grabbing women by their private parts. is there a risk here for this president? >> i'll talk this up as yet another risky tweet that he puts out that you think oh, my goodness, he shouldn't go there on this subject. this was in that category. he -- this is a moment in history right now where you see women coming forward, and last night was incredible television in terms of watching that young woman just talk very authentically and in detail, and very frankly about what happened to her. and so we're in this moment of history where people are finally able to come forward. it's an incredibly difficult subject to fum forward on.
and the president who faces his own -- as you said, sort of all these lists of allegations by other women, this is just the time to not weigh in. he's not -- sort of done that with moore so he should have done the same thing with franken and just stepped back and let others comment on it. >> we've talked about the tribalism that exists where everyone retreats to their corn er and it goes back to the bill clinton allegations but now it starts in the oval office, with the president weighing in on franken but not on roy moore. punt ing on that issue. what does it reveal about the president? he won't call for him to step down. why? >> i don't know why he hasn't done it. but certainly i can't think of one republican that's left
standing that hasn't made a comment about he should step aside. the he should not -- or he won't ever sit in h the senate. if he gets there. and i think it's probably an i credibly important moment for the president to say, look, this guy should not be here. and if he is -- if the people of alabama electr him, and they wee right when they said it is up to the people of alabama. it's their vote, but we don't have to seat him and there are procedural steps in place that we can utilize and where he never sets foot in h the u.s. senate. he needs to come out with a strong statement like that. he's a father. he has a wife, daughters, granddaughters, sister, mother. just think about any of that. i ask any man or woman to think about if it happened to someone in your life, wouldn't up want someone to stand up for you at that moment. >> there is a reckoning and a
public shaming really of some of these men who have had maybe years of creepy behavior and still made it to the top of their game or career. one wonders if this is going to last. what do you think? do you think this is sort of a new moment where creepy men are getting the message that hey, this is behavior that you're going to be publicly shamed for, if not tried for. >> i'm -- you know, if there are creepy men out there that are quaking in their boots right now, shame on them. i don't think this stops with the people that are at the top, as you said. right? i think that people, whether they're in business, school, social media gives people the outlet to be able to say, hey, this happened to me. this is the guy or the woman that did it to me, and this needs to stop. i think we're at the tip of the iceberg. i don't think this ends for a
while, until people realize that certain behavior is just not acceptable. it's unwanted. and it shouldn't be -- it's awful. >> i think it's interesting the "new york post" calls it franken slime with that now infamous picture. what's interesting to me is that remembers the unwanting kissing episode differently than she does. it might be that we have to start talking about this stuff so that you know, men know that that, what he thought was maybe normal is just not. >> you think he thought that was normal? shoving his tongue down someone's throat? >> i keep saying no women wants -- >> can franken survive this. >> look, does he stay in the u.s. senate? 50/50 chance. his aspirations to become president, not so much. >> his reputation is -- >> you see members of his own
party taking money that was donated to their own campaigns, from his super pack and donating it to women's programs. and people had no problem walking away from him yesterday. i found that fascinating and admirable for the members of the democratic party who did that. >> quickly, and the house passed a big tax rewrite, the first one in a generation. yesterday was such a crazy day. when you come back, we'll talk about taxes and that spat between jerry brown and/. speaking of which, the house passed its version of tax bill earlier yesterday in h an historic vote. no democrats backing it but the real fireworks. late last night. measure passed by a 14-12 vote strictly along party lines,
republican chairman and brown getting in a shouting match. >> i get kind of sick and tired of it. true, it's a nice political play. >> well, mr. chairman, with all due respect i get sick and tired. >> regular order, mr. chairman. >> regular order. >> we do attack. >> regular order er. >> wait a minute. >> and over and over and over again. >> how many times -- >> listen, i've honored you by allowing you to start off here. what you said was not right. that's all i'm saying. i come from the lower middle class originally. we didn't have anything. so don't spew that stuff on me. i get a little tired of that crap. let me just say something. if you didn't -- if we work together, we can pull this country out of every mess it's in h. >> perhaps a preview of the battle that lies ahead. the bill which includes the appeal of original plan date in
obamacare heads to the senate floor where action is expect the after the thanksgiving break. the senate tax plan gives big tax cuts to the rich while raising tacks on american families. that's a cord to go a brand new congressional study. all americans getting cuts the first year but the savings decrease over time. in 2021 families earning $10 to $30,000 will pay more than if congress did nothing. by the year 2027 tax increases for all americans making $75 or less. two reasons. individual tax cuts expire in 2025 and the repeal of obamacare's individual mandate. that's in the senate bill. the study finds higher health care costs will wipe out tax savings. now you've got this house bill to pass. happiness from paul ryan and crew. you know, now they've got to get a senate bill set in stone and then figure out what it's really going to look like. >> you have to talk about roy moore in that context because they can only lose one

to do is apologize to lee ann, to everyone else who is a part of that. to everyone who has worked for me and everyone i represent and everyone who counts on me to be an ally and sporter of women. my own actions have given people a good action to doubt that makes me feel ashamed. tweeden accepting his apology. i honestly do believe limb. and, you know, i wasn't waiting for an apology from him. but i gladly accept it, and thank you. >> late last night, president trump weighing in on the franken revelatio revelations. he seemed to ignore both the roy moore allegations and history against him. in a tweet he says this. theial frankenstein picture is really bad. speaks 1,000 words. where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 while
she sleeps? >> pictures worth 1,000 words but there's a tape of the president talking about groping women. >> i think it's risky to be talking about a picture of someone when he's on tape. >> risky and revealing about this president. let's discuss this with salena zito. good morning, so we're going to talk about franken, whether he can survive this. at the president moved the conversation with this late night tweet, because of course he punted on the roy moore issue. he will not call for him to stand down. is this because he doesn't want the conversation to be about his past or hates losing. he really needs that senate win. >>reporter: he really does hate losing. that's been his entire pore ser.
having said that, you know, i think, if he was -- made the decision to make a comment about franken, then he needs to follow that up with a strie dent comment about moore and urging him to step down. what he's done with doing that tweet is opened us up for at least an entire weekend of talking about this nonstop on television, on twitter, conversations in family members, but it also just makes everyone revisit access hollywood and everyone revisit the women who came forward and accusing him of things last year in the lead up to the election. and so i wonder who -- what kind of guidance, moral guidance does he have in his head that he thinks this wz a really good idea. unless, in his head, he's like
he's strie dentally believes there's no there there with his accusers, that's the only thing i can imagine, which made him feel this was okay to tweet. >> or that it won't matter for his supporters. the people that got him in. the other thing i keep hearing is this sort of what-aboutism. suddenly what about bill clinton. this country turned itself inside out over bill clinton's sexual behavior 20 years ago, 25 years ago, he was impeached, but a senator was asked about this. what about bill clinton? is it should we be revisiting how we behaved or how politicians behaved in recent memory. this is what she said. is it your view that the president should have stepped down at that time? >> yes. oi thing thak is the appropriate response, but i think things have changed today, and i think
under those circumstances, there should be a very different reaction, in i think in light of this conversation we should have a very different conversation about president trump and allegations against him. >> she turned it to president trump, but this is really become a conversation about men behaving badly going all the way to the clinton administration, actually, to the bush administration and some of the allegations coming out while george h.w. bush was president. >> right. and wow. last night. i don't know if if you guys saw this, but the clinton team went after her on twitter. and it became -- i was like looking for popcorn to watch and see what happened. it was pretty telling. look, you know, i mean revisiting this, and then sort of taking it back to president trump, president clinton, that kind of conversation, then what starts to happen is that the --
you lose the thrust of what's happening today. and what-aboutism, i don't think is very healthy. on both sides of the aisle, because what happened then, people reacted to what happened with clinton in that moment, in that space of time. in 1996, was a very different time than 2017. even though it was 25 years ago, 30 years ago, whatever it was. and so some of this is difficult to sort of process as to what would you have done then, but then has already passed. we're in the moment right now. >> reckoning is today. >> right. how can you go forward. i think if we continue to do that we're sort of stuck in the mud and this moment ends right here. >> but hang on. >> and -- but right now, can franken survive and will roy moore win in alabama where,
according to a "fox news" poll he trails by eight? >> roy moore could toenpotentia lose. it would be the first time that a democrat has won since 1992 in that state. senator shelby. he went on to become -- changed party to republican. but the voters down there, you know, this is up to them. you have two different things going on down there. right? you have this complete distrust with the media, and thinking that everyone is in their business, and they're going to vote just because of that. they're going to vote against washington, against media. but then you also have, i would say a rising majority of the people were very thoughtful about this. they look at their daughter, sisters, mothers, and say look f that happened to my family, there's no way i can support someone who did tsh-you know,
who did the kinds of things he's been accused of. and so, i think -- i think that there's a large chance that moore loses in h alabama. >> all right. we'll have to watch and know for sure whether the people of alabama want to do about that. thank you so much. thank you. >> new jersey democratic senator bob menendez claiming vindication this morning. the jury reported a hopeless deadlock. and the judge declared a mistrial. menendez phased 18 counts of fraud and bribery. cnn's laura jarrett has been following this from the beginning. do you expect a retrial? >> reporter: hey, good morning, christine. that is the big question right now, whether the justice department will re-file these charges against senator menendez and do this case over from scratch. the prosecutors say right now they're looking at next steps, but one of the jurors told us after court yesterday the jury was actually split 10-2 in favor
of acquitting menendez saying prosecutors just did not have enough evidence in this case. the entire theory was built upon this idea the senator was taking gifts from his friend in exchange for political favors. but outside of court yesterday, the senator appeared relieved at this mistrial decision, taking a shot at his political opponents along the way. >> to those who left me, who abandoned me in h my darkest moment, i forgive you. to those who embraced me in my darkest moment, i love you. to those new jerseyians who gave me the benefit of the doubt, i thank you. to those who were digging my political grave so they could jump into my seat, i know who are and i won't forget you. >> now meanwhile the senate ethics committee said it intends to resume its investigation on senator menendez.
this case is over for now, but perhaps not for good. >> all right. thank you so much for that. ahead, embattled sim bob way president mugabe making his first public appearance since the apparent coup. we're live next.
