    FULL TITLE:Schumer to Trump: You Can Begin to Prove You’re Not Racist or Bigoted By Supporting Bipartisan Immigration Compromise On Monday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that President Trump can begin to prove he’s not racist or bigoted by supporting the bipartisan immigration compromise.

    Why is it Democrats have such a natural affinity for situational ethics? Flashback: That Time Schumer Said It Was Insane To Shut Down The Government Over Immigration Reform. But that was then: Nancy Pelosi called the shutdown gambit “an unthinkable tactic,” and labeled those pushing for it “legislative arsonists.” Chuck Schumer vowed not to use it: “No matter how strongly one feels about an issue, you shouldn’t hold millions of people hostage . . . That’s wrong and we can’t give into that,” he told the New York Observer. “We could say, ‘we’re shutting down the government, we’re not going...

    This week, the government will run out of money on Friday, January 19. Once the clock strikes midnight, the government could be shut down, unless a deal over immigration is hashed out this week. Earlier this month, there was some hope. President Trump met with congressional leaders from both parties and allowed the cameras to capture the negotiation process for an extended period of time. There seemed to be consensus over border security and DACA recipients. How to move forward on the policy angle remained to be seen. Yes, there was an ulterior motive with that as well; Trump wanted...

    It's a new year, but a CNN panel hosted by Nia-Malika Henderson took a few moments this weekend to reflect on Democrats' poor messaging in 2017 - poor messaging which resulted in their pacing far behind the Republicans in fundraising. As of November, the RNC had $39.8 million in cash on hand, to the DNC's $6.3 million. Watch video hereJake Tapper also remarked on the Democrats' dry fundraising on Twitter. It's kind of a big deal, he noted. Jake Tapper @jaketapper The fundraising superiority of @gop over @dnc this year is not to be dismissed and it’s kind of astounding...
  • Guzzardi: Schumer, Pelosi back surrender on DACA - for now

    After saber-rattling for weeks that they would shut down the federal government unless the 790,000 “dreamers” under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACAs) program were granted amnesty, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi quietly withdrew their threat. Schumer and Pelosi realized what the rest of voting America knows: that outside the Beltway, DACA isn’t a priority. The pair also knew that President Donald Trump would use his favorite communication tool, Twitter, to send out the message that Democrats were willing to close the government unless this specific group of illegal immigrants received amnesty and...
  • Preet Bharara Explains Why He Let Wall Street Bank Executives Avoid Prison

    Recently dismissed U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, is suddenly being celebrated as an aggressive warrior in the fight against Wall Street corruption. Really? You could’ve fooled me. Perhaps I was in a coma when a string of big bank executives were arrested and sent to prison. No, what actually happened is one of the most powerful attorneys in the nation came up with a mealy-mouthed, cowardly rationale for why he let these financial thieves off the hook. Crain’s reports: Bharara was nowhere to be found when it came to charging the top executives whose...

    A handful of folks are really steamed that Republican lawmakers are planning to lower taxes, and they gathered in tiny conference room on Capitol Hill where House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi was slated to speak Monday. But the demonstration was so weak, MSNBC reports, Pelosi didn’t even bother to show up. “These protests have never been like what we saw with the healthcare law,” an MSNBC reporter said as a camera man panned the crowd of a couple dozen mulled about in self-scheduling conference room 2456. “This particular protest was supposed to start at three, it was supposed to feature...

    The fumblewear bomber may have experienced one of the classic fails in terrorist society, but he’s clearly having an impact nonetheless. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is pushing a sense of urgency in getting some sort of bomb detection system in place in the nation’s mass transit hubs such as bus and rail stations. This is an understandable, if reflexive response to an attempted terror attack and if it could be implemented both safely and effectively I’m guessing most of us would be willing to at least give it a look. But can it be done? (Associated Press) Screening...

The House and Senate are meeting on the tax bill, and if this is the conference committee…? Is that what’s been going…? (interruption) Okay, we have a deal in the conference committee. That’s a big deal. That means the House and Senate have agreed on one form of the bill. You know, the House passed their bill and the Senate passed theirs. And after that you have to go to conference between the...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is demanding that Republicans delay a vote on their tax plan following Tuesday's special election in Alabama. "We Senate Democrats are calling on Mitch McConnell to hit pause on his tax bill and not hold a final vote until Doug Jones is sworn in to the Senate," he told reporters during a press conference on Wednesday. He added that "it would be wrong for Senate Republicans to jam through this tax bill without giving the newly elected senator from Alabama the opportunity to cast his vote." Democrat Doug Jones won the special election, defeating...

    Sen. Charles Schumer said Tuesday he’s gone to the Capitol Police about a bogus sexual-harassment complaint that has been circulated to the media in an apparent attempt to smear him. Several news organizations have been sent papers purporting to be a federal lawsuit — using the name of a real former Schumer staffer — accusing him of lurid behavior. But the former Schumer employee named in the “suit” told The Post she has not filed any such complaint. Schumer and the woman have both gone to police.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid raised eyebrows at a New York City fundraiser hosted by Mayor Michael Bloomberg Monday morning when he referred to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand as the "hottest member," according to CNN. Gillibrand, who was seated only a few feet away from Reid at Bloomberg's New York townhouse, flushed with embarrassment at the comment, CNN reports. According to a Politico source, Reid delivered remarks praising New York's senior senator, Chuck Schumer, before turning to Gillibrand and adding that, "many senators are known for many things," and that "we in the Senate refer to Sen. Gillibrand as the hottest...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, accused President Donald Trump of slut-shaming Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand when he attacked the New York Democrat in a tweet on Tuesday morning. A day after Gillibrand, widely considered a potential 2020 presidential candidate, called for Trump's resignation, the president claimed the senator used to "do anything" for campaign donations from him. Trump concluded his verbal lashing by calling Gillibrand "used" and "very disloyal" to the Clintons, apparently referring to Gillibrand's recent statement that former President Bill Clinton should have left office following his affair with Monica Lewinsky in the 1990s. "Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand,...

    TITLE SHOULD BE: DEMS READY TO SHUT DOWN US GOVT UNLESS DREAMERS ARE LEGALIZED. The threat of a government shutdown has put Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) in a tricky political situation. Schumer has kept his caucus unified against President Trump’s major legislative drives on ObamaCare and tax reform, but he faces a more divided group of Democrats when it comes to protecting young immigrants who could face deportation next year. The internal debate has more to do with legislative strategy than the underlining issue. Democrats generally back a legislative fix that would allow so-called Dreamers brought to the...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer knew it was time for Minnesota Democrat Al Franken to leave the Senate even before the public calls for his resignation Wednesday. The New York Democrat told Franken in a phone call that he needed to resign after Wednesday morning’s publication of further allegations of sexual misconduct by the senator, according to a person familiar with the conversation. That’s despite the close friendship between the two lawmakers. Franken was a member of one of Schumer’s Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee classes and he provided the party with 60 votes in 2009 when he was sworn...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer advised President Trump to declare Jerusalem the "undivided" capital of Israel ahead of Trump's expected announcement on the matter this week, the New York Democrat told The Weekly Standard on Tuesday. The White House said Tuesday that Trump will announce that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, but will delay moving the embassy from Tel Aviv. Trump had suggested in an October interview that he was planning to make a decision regarding the embassy, but wanted to give an Israeli–Palestinian peace plan "a shot" first, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency...
