Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., says he supports an effort to stonewall the Trump administration’s not-yet-announced FBI director nominee by refusing a confirmation vote until a special prosecutor has been appointed to investigate potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the intelligence committee, has led the charge. Warner says he finds it “very disturbing” that Trump would fire the head of the FBI, James Comey, during its probe into the Trump campaign’s potential ties to Russia. Now he has the support of Schumer, the highest ranking Democrat in the Senate.
When asked about it on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, Schumer said there are “a lot of Democrats” who support Warner’s effort.
Schumer said “I would support that move” but Democrats will have to discuss it as a group.
Despite this “broad support,” Schumer hopes for, and needs, some Republican backing to make the Democrats’ efforts effective.
There are currently 54 Republicans in the Senate, 44 Democrats and two independents who caucus with the Democrats.
Chucky Schumer is a typical liberal demac-RAT and typical nutcase and frankly he needs to have his head examened
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) made a request to all the Democratic members of the Senate asking the 48 Democratic members of the Senate to be in their desks by 9:30 a.m.
Either Democrats are not very good at listening to instructions or Senator Schumer is failing as a leader.
Take your pick.
