STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, DEC. 4, 2017.....After more than five hours behind closed doors, a leading Senate Democrat said the body was entering the "final stages" of deciding the future leadership of the Senate and how to proceed with an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment and government interference by Bryon Hefner.

Senate Majority Leader Harriette Chandler said just after 4:30 p.m. that Democrats had invited Republicans, along with the Senate clerk and Senate counsel, to their join their caucus, which could mean that officials are prepared to draft matters for consideration when the Senate eventually convenes publicly.

"We're coming to, I think, the final stages of this. It's taken longer than we ever expected. We've had a very intense and very open conversation and we will be with you as soon as we get through this stage," Chandler said.
