As Twitchy has reported, Sen. Al Franken took to the Senate floor today to announce that he’d be resigning in a matter of weeks. Dozens of Democrats had called for his resignation, but Franken sounded defiant in regards to the accusations against him:

Franken managed to use the opportunity of his own resignation after several harassment allegations to slam both President Trump and GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore:
