Transcript for Lawmakers face daunting to-do list when they return to Capitol Hill
Good morning. Thank you for joining us this holiday weekend. President trump is waking up at mar-a-lago, where he's been spending his working Thanksgiving tweet about his accomplishments so far. Taking on the NFL and "Time" magazine. And taking in a round of golf with Tiger Woods. Starting tomorrow, Washington, like the rest of America, heads back to work. Congress facing a daunting to do list. Determining the future of the dreamers and the children's health insurance program. Not to mention tax reform, which trump has promised to deliver by Christmas. On Tuesday, trump will travel to the hill to rally senate Republicans. His second visit to the capitol in as many weeks. He'll meet with the big four. Mitch Mcconnell, chuck Schumer, Paul Ryan, and Nancy Pelosi. Hanging over it all, the the steady, perhaps unprecedented outpouring of sexual misconduct allegations. Each week, more individuals going public with their stories. Each week, more house hold names stripped of their powerful positions after accusations of misconduct. But as more accusers come forward against those powerful lawmakers on capitol hill, we're seeing a different reaction. A slower response. Senator Al Franken, and representative John Conyers, both now facing multiple accusations and congressional investigations, but both are also still holding on to their positions. Representative Jackie spier has said she knows of two other members of congress who have engaged in sexual harassment, still unnamed, and as of now, facing no consequences. Then there's Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore. Accused of sexual misconduct against minors. President Donald Trump defending him this week. Saying that Moore denies it. And implying that his denial is enough. But according to a report just out overnight in "The New York Times," that defense of Moore infuhr rating trump's Republican colleagues on capitol hill who have been trying to distance the party from those misconduct allegations.
