Democratic Sen. Al Franken apologized to his staff, the people of Minnesota, and "everyone who has counted on him to be a champion of women" for his past history of sexual misconduct during a press conference outside of his office Monday.

Key quote: "I am sorry... know there are no magic words I can say to regain your trust, and I know that's going to take time."
