Trump has not mentioned Moore in public comments and tweets, and has ignored reporters' questions about the allegations.

She said Franken's request to have the Senate ethics panel investigate his sexual misconduct "is the kind of accountability I'm talking about". "Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologising, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither", she told New York's WABC radio station.

Sports broadcaster and former model Leeann Tweeden also accused Franken, a former comedian once tipped as a possible White House candidate, of kissing her without her consent. She also posted a photo of a smiling Franken apparently grabbing her breasts while she slept on a flight home from that tour.

Franken has since apologized for those perverted acts and is barricaded in his figurative bunker as the calls for his resignation grow deafening.

Moore, who is running to fill the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has faced accusations over the past week that he pursued sexual and romantic relationships with teenage girls while he was in his 30s.

Republican leaders in Congress have called on Moore to exit the race, and the Republican National Committee cut off fundraising ties to Moore's campaign this week.

But he made sure to go out with a bang by shedding his thoughts on the latest sexual misconduct allegations in the headlines.

When asked about the past behaviour of Bill Clinton, her husband and a former United States president, and if she should have been more supportive of his female accusers versus reports that she attacked their credibility, Hillary said, "Every situation has to be judged on its own merit".

Trump also threw his support behind Moore the moment he defeated unusual. "Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?" read the president's first tweet, sent just after 10 p.m.in Washington.

Later, Short repeated the White House's line that the large list of women accusing Trump himself of sexual assault and harassment in the past are lying.

With the nation confronting revelations of sexual impropriety by powerful men in entertainment and politics, Trump is an inconsistent as well as an unlikely critic of alleged offenders.

Indeed, some pundits claim Franken has gamed McConnell to investigate him to open the door to a wider probe of sexual misconduct in Washington.

When the "Access Hollywood" recording was released a month before the election, and Trump was heard bragging that he could kiss women and grab their genitals against their will, many Republicans abandoned him and urged contrition.

Hillary also said that the President has "disgraced the office".

"The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words. He still firmly believes that", Sanders told reporters on Thursday, noting, "This is a decision people of Alabama need to make, not the President".
