Chuck Schumer attacked Trump in an awful speech that will make your blood boil
Chuck Schumer has been lobbing partisan grenades at Donald Trump ever since he won the GOP nomination.
He’s only escalated his attacks in recent months.
But he just gave a speech about Robert Mueller that will make your blood boil.
Schumer is working to whip the so-called “mainstream” media into a frenzy over Trump possibly firing Mueller.
So he marched to the Senate floor and demanded Mitch McConnell pass a bill that would shield the special counsel from Trump axing him.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Yesterday’s events could only have been the result of a rigorous legal process with checks every step of the way and with a very high burden of proof,” the Minority Leader stated. “Last night, President Trump said the FBI raid was a disgrace, part of a witch hunt, an attack on our country and mentioned that many people have encouraged him to fire Mr. Mueller. ‘We’ll see what happens,’ he concluded.”
Schumer argued that, “for months, Republicans have said that legislation to protect the special counsel is not needed because they’ve been assured by nameless people that the president won’t fire the special counsel.”
“That assurance has been shaken by the president’s comments last night.”
“The president suggests that the latest events are part of a partisan conspiracy against him,” he continued. “I’d remind the president that the source of the referral, special counsel Mueller is a lifelong Republican. The deputy attorney general who signed off on the study, Rod Rosenstein, is a Republican appointed by President Trump.”
Schumer specifically called on the Senate to “take steps to protect the special counsel from political interference.”
“We have several bipartisan bills designed to do just that,” he explained. “Majority Leader McConnell should bring them to the floor and let us debate them very soon.”
So far, Senate Majority Leader McConnell has refused to act on legislation many believe is unconstitutional.
But Schumer’s real goal is to help sow media chaos.
Mueller is conducting a witch hunt against Trump and the President has every legal and Constitutional authority to fire Mueller.
Now that reports are breaking that Mueller referred information to federal prosecutors about payments made to women claiming to have an affair with Trump, it’s clear the special counsel believes his mission is to destroy Trump.
But the media will take their cue from Schumer and claim Trump would plunge the nation into crisis and face impeachment if he moved against the special counsel.
