Doug Jones Says Congress Should ‘Move On' From Trump Sexual Misconduct Allegations Earlier this month, Alabama's senator-elect called on Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to resign over groping accusations. Doug Jones said it's time for his fellow Democrats to "move on" from focusing on the numerous sexual misconduct allegations against President Donald Trump. ″People had an opportunity to judge before that election," Jones said. "I think we need to move on and not get distracted by those issues." "I don't think the president ought to resign at this point," he continued. "We'll see how things go."

Earlier this month, Jones called on Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to resign over mounting groping allegations against him. On Dec. 7, Franken announced he would be stepping aside in the near future.

Asked by CNN's Jake Tapper why Trump shouldn't be held to the same standard, Jones suggested it was an issue best decided by voters.

"Well, again, I go back to the fact that those allegations were made and he was elected president of the United States," Jones said. "At this point, we need to move on and try to work with some real issues that are facing the country and not worry about getting at odds with the president any more than we have to.
