"He's anxious about the conversation moving to his past accusers", the Republican familiar with the matter said, noting that the President believes his accusers were unfair and some of Moore's may be, too.

Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity joined the GOP critics during his show Tuesday evening, calling on Moore to explain "inconsistencies" in his response to allegations of child molestation or exit the Alabama race.

Republicans in Washington have called increasingly for Moore to step down, and some party leaders have said they would support expelling him from the Senate should he win the election. Ted Cruz and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, both of Texas.

Shelby told reporters on Wednesday that there is little recourse to stop Moore even if the state GOP's executive committee asked him to leave. "We need to get to the bottom of this because it's anti-semitism on the national political stage and it's disgusting". In a later report, a fifth woman accused Moore of sexual misconduct.

Moore was also reportedly banned from an Alabama mall in the 1980s due to a reputation for preying on high school-age girls. Hannity, on his show Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017, gave Moore 24 hours.

"Before we close tonight I want to address the new very serious misconduct allegations against Judge Roy Moore".

At this point, there are two options: Either several different women who don't know one another have made a decision to take the enormous personal risk of making up stories about Roy Moore in a vast political conspiracy, or a politician caught up in a scandal with every incentive to dissemble is doing it - and not very well. "I can understand it, people have a hard time talking about it years later". "Roy, I believe, is going to stay in (the race) and he's denied it and that's the proper thing to do".

"We deserve answers - consistent answers - and truth", said Hannity, who is generally among the most reliable and consistent media supporters of President Trump and the conservative cause. If Moore's name is withdrawn, there is no process to replace one candidate with another on the ballot.

It's amusing how the Republican Party is.

If Moore's nomination is withdrawn, the state canvassing board will not certify votes for him. How many men in their 30s are "friends" with teenage girls who they may or may not have dated?

He said Jeff Sessions, who held the seat, would be an "ideal candidate" but noted that Sessions is already attorney general.

Moore continued to fight McConnell on Twitter Wednesday, responding to his write-in proposition by writing, "Mitch McConnell is attempting to subvert the will of Alabamians yet again, this time helping to elect a far-left Democrat!".
