RUSH SEXCERPT:

ACOSTA: "And you know senator Franken. You’ve served with him. I’m sure this is somewhat of an uncomfortable subject. But what do you think should happen to him? Should he resign?"
BLUMENTHAL: :That’s the question that will have to be determined after the investigation. Obviously more than just an apology. Some remedy and probably a serious remedy is appropriate here. And that serious remedy will be determined after the investigation comes to all the facts and what we’ve seen so far is certainly deeply troubling and any sexual harassment is abhorrent. What’s happened here is deeply disturbing."
