    NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer is urging federal regulators to look into a “snortable chocolate” powder, saying he’s worried that it could prove harmful and is being marketed like a drug. In a letter Saturday, the New York Democrat asked the Food and Drug Administration to investigate the use of caffeine in inhalable food products such as so-called Coco Loko. It’s gotten buzz in recent weeks. Schumer, the Senate minority leader, says there are too many unanswered questions about a product pitched under the innocent-sounding name of chocolate. “This suspect product has no clear health value,” he...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is knocking President Trump for not having a "specific agenda" for his upcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and making suggestions for what the two leaders could discuss. "It's baffling that @POTUS doesn't have a specific agenda for the Putin meeting," Schumer tweeted on Wednesday. The Democratic senator added that he would offer the "first few things that come to my mind" before tweeting roughly a dozen suggestions for topics of conversation. Trump is holding a high-stakes meeting with the Russian president later this week, marking their first face-to-face meeting since Trump took...

    [Title truncated; Full Title: REPORT: Jared, Ivanka, Conway, Dina Powell Spotted at Hamptons Party with Soros, Schumer, Fake News Journos] While most Americans were working and looking forward to hot dogs and fireworks on the Fourth of July some Hollywood celebs, media types and political operatives — including some in President Donald Trump’s inner circle — were partying at the tony Southhampton home of Washington Post owner/editor Lally Graham Weymouth this weekend. According to Politico’s Playbook — which issued one correction on its piece about misidentifying the Koch brother who attended — a wide range of people were invited —...

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham became frustrated with intelligence community lawyers Tuesday, when they would not answer a question about his conversations being picked up while the U.S. was spying on foreign targets. Graham asked the lawyers at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday whether he is legally entitled to know if his communications are collected and “unmasked” within the administration. The identities of U.S. citizens inadvertently caught up in foreign spying are typically “masked” from officials to protect their privacy rights. “It’s important to us to get the facts right,” Graham said. “Did the name come in masked or unmasked?...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Wednesday slammed Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for using a rare procedure to block a classified briefing on the Obama administration's steps to "unmask" members of the Trump campaign and transition teams. Committee members told The Washington Times they planned to use the session with intelligence officials to find out how agencies identified Americans whose communications with foreigners outside the United States were monitored. "Today, the Judiciary Committee was set to hear from senior intelligence officials about highly sensitive intelligence gathering authorities that will soon require action from Congress," Grassley, the Iowa Republican, said...

    President Trump tweeted he hopes that Democrats keep House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., in charge to help Republicans. "I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out. That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!" he tweeted. Trump bragged about Republicans' record in special elections to replace lawmakers he appointed to his Cabinet, all of which have been GOP victories. The most recent race, in which Karen Handel beat Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff, was the most expensive House race in history. Many...

    But even after Mr. Comey told the Gang of 8 that the President was not under investigation, the Minority Leader told the media that the President was under investigation. Of course that further the media hysteria. The Minority Leader even tried to say that the Senate shouldn’t vote on the Supreme Court nomination because the President was under investigation and the whole time he knew it was not true.

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) blasted Democrats on Thursday — particularly Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) — for fueling media hysteria, knowing full well President Trump was not under investigation for collusion with Russia. In a statement delivered on the Senate floor, Grassley said that in March, former FBI Director James Comey had told him, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and the group of Senate and House members known as the “Gang of Eight” that the president was not under investigation. But Schumer, who is part of the Gang of Eight, continued to tell the media Trump was under...

    Oh, noes! Not Nancy! – San Fran Nan, defending herself from a rising movement to replace her as House Minority Leader in the wake of Tuesday’s humiliating loss in Georgia’s HD 6, held a bumbling, stumbling, mumbling press conference on Thursday. During the presser, she repeated herself constantly, flailed about for words, and finally blurted out the following: “I always, always, always quote Martin Luther King in so many ways. But in this score, he said, Dr. Mar— he said, the ballot, the ballot, the ballot, legislation, legislation, legislation, your life, your life, your life.” Trouble, Dr. King never said...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is throwing his support behind a push to block part of President Trump's $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia. “The human rights and humanitarian concerns have been well documented and are important: of equal concern to me is that the Saudi government continues to aid and abet terrorism via its relationship with Wahhabism and the funding of schools that spread extremist propaganda throughout the world," Schumer said in a statement. The Senate is expected to vote this week on a resolution of disapproval from Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Al...

    Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara revealed on Sunday that he received a handful of "unusual" phone calls from Donald Trump after the November election that made him feel uncomfortable, and said he was fired after declining to take the third call. Speaking on ABC News' "This Week" in his first televised interview since Trump fired him in March as the top federal prosecutor in Manhattan, Bharara said he believed Trump's calls to him violated the usual boundaries between the executive branch and independent criminal investigators. "It's a very weird and peculiar thing for a one-on-one conversation without the attorney general,...

    Sen. Charles Schumer says President Donald Trump’s plan to privatize the nation’s air traffic control system could mean higher costs for consumers. The New York Democrat and Senate minority leader said Sunday that the plan Trump announced on June 5 would give airlines too much control over costs. He also said that during any national security emergency, privatization could hamper communication between air traffic controllers and the Department of Defense. …

    Hamptons hell-raiser and son to mega-billionaire Democrat donor George Soros, Alex Soros, has made his debut on the political circuit by meeting with a handful of prominent liberal leaders. Soros’ Instagram, a go-to for Manhattan nightlife, drunken karaoke parties, lobster feasts, Bono selfies, and refugee camps, has recently been updated with an influx of photos showing the playboy heir chumming it up with Congressman John Lewis and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. In the photo with Schumer, which was posted Friday afternoon, the two are hunched over a table with three alcoholic-looking drinks. Though Soros appears to be holding his...

    **SNIP** So IRS staffers simply "were doing what people on Capitol Hill wanted them to do," Rove said “In 2010, Max Baucus . . . wrote a letter to the director of the IRS saying, ‘Go investigate these kinds of groups.’ We had Chuck Schumer, who has been stirring this around for a number of years, by 2012 he goes out and gives a similar tough letter to the head of the IRS saying, ‘Look at these groups,’ and gets six others to sign the letter.” The Schumer letter spoke of "abuse of the tax code by political groups focused...

Schumer posted a mock newspaper page on Twitter that said "Trump to Earth: Drop Dead," shortly after Trump's formal announcement. The mockup also featured the headlines: "U.S. No Longer a Leader," "Even Big CEOs Blast Trump," and "Global Temperatures Continue Rising." Schumer said in a formal statement that Trump's decision is a "devastating failure of historic proportions."...

    Country music superstar Charlie Daniels, whose criticism of politicians is legend – just last month he blasted them for being willing to “kiss a flatulent skunk’s posterior” before allowing the “other party” to look good – has issued a warning to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. Those Democratic Party scandals still could make a few waves. Such as the the cash that flowed to the Clinton Foundation amid the State Department’s approval of a deal to give Russia control of 20 percent of America’s uranium reserves. Or the time four American citizens died in a planned terror attack in Benghazi,...
