“I’m here to demand the resignation of Al Franken and John Conyers,” Willey stated. “They are not sorry. Their apologies are weak. The only reason they apologized is because they were caught.”
“I’m tired of paying Bill Clinton’s pension for what he did to me and all of these other women. I know there are many, many more like me,” Millwee stated.
