McCaskill called Franken's actions "inappropriate conduct".
When asked if she thought Franken should step down, Tweeden said, "That's not why I came out with my story".
And then he alluded to a "Lesley Stahl tape", referring to a 1995 interview with New York Magazine in which Franken - then a writer for Saturday Night Live - discussed a purported skit that involved drugging and raping the CBS News reporter.
