Hospital staff emerged from the E.R. to rush Franken inside for an undisclosed procedure.

“They whisked them away really quickly,” says the spy.

An insider close to Franken said the former Senator’s family and friends were terrified after learning of his hospitalization.

However, the procedure was ultimately a success, the insider assured Radar.

“He’s fine,” the insider insisted.

Franken, a former comedian, is transitioning back to private life in his home state of Minnesota now that he is no longer Senator. But he is currently recovering in the country's capitol.

“He’s living in D.C. for the time being,” said the insider. “He needed some time to recuperate.”

As Radar previously reported, radio host Melanie Morgan accused the politician of “creepy” and “threatening” behavior on the set of Bill Maher’s former show Politically Incorrect in 2000.

Model Leeann Tweeden recently came forward to accuse Franken of groping her while she slept in 2006.

He apologized and said he was “ashamed” of his actions after a photo emerged of him grabbing Tweeden’s chest.
