Al Franken freely admits that he regrets his decision to resign from the Senate. And he’s not alone in that regret. “A remarkable number of Franken’s Senate colleagues have regrets about their own roles in his fall. Seven current and former U.S. senators who demanded Franken’s resignation in 2017 told me that they’d been wrong to do so. Such admissions are unusual in an institution whose members rarely concede mistakes.” The New Yorker’s always excellent Jane Mayer on The Case of Al Franken.
