Chuck Schumer just admitted how far Democrats will go to impeach Trump
With Trump in the White House, and Republicans holding a strong majority in the Senate, Chuck Schumer has little power.
But he is working with his caucus to try to impeach Trump.
And he just admitted just how far Democrats will go to impeach him.
Democrats truly are obsessed with impeaching President Donald Trump.
They know that if they cannot somehow remove him before the 2020 election, that Trump will almost certainly win re-election.
So they are pushing forward with their efforts, with Adam Schiff leading the push through his Soviet-style impeachment court.
But all of this craziness has made getting anything else done virtually impossible.
And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer just came out stating that the government may go through another shutdown due to the impeachment efforts.
Congress has to deal with passing spending legislation by November 22 in order to keep the government open.
Schumer revealed this news by claiming that Trump “may want to shut down the government again because of impeachment.”
In addition to, well, everything else going on, Congress also has to deal with passing spending legislation to keep the government open before Nov. 21.
There’s been some question of how the impeachment inquiry would affect this. And now Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is expressing concern about how President Donald Trump himself will react:
“I believe, left to our own devices, Congress would work out an agreement to quickly fund the government. But I’m increasingly worried that President Trump may want to shut down the government again because of impeachment. An impeachment inquiry.”
“He always likes to create diversions,’ Schumer added. “I hope and pray he won’t want to cause another shutdown ’cause it might be a diversion away from impeachment.”
Schumer seems to be preparing the media for the narrative around a government shutdown, assuming it comes later this month.
He wants it to be President Trump’s fault, despite the fact that it is Democrats doing everything to create division in Congress.
They had Adam Schiff, a known liar and leaker, leading the impeachment efforts on Trump after all.
Trump is willing to work with Democrats.
But that is impossible when Democrats only want him to fail.
