    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is demanding Republicans convene a public hearing on any deal made between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at their recent summit in Helsinki. “Our Republican colleagues need to join us in demanding testimony from the president’s national security team that was in Helsinki and we need to do that immediately ... to assess what President Trump might have committed to President Putin in secret,” Schumer said Tuesday on the Senate floor. “You can’t assume anything -- but that as weak as he was in public before President Putin, he was even worse...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer called Monday on President Trump’s national security team to testify before Congress about what was said before and after Mr. Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) had some choice words for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on his efforts to unify Democrats against President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Manchin told Politico on Friday that Schumer has no power over support for Kavanaugh’s nomination. “I’ll be 71-years-old in August; you’re going to whip me? Kiss my you know what,” Manchin, referring to Schumer’s efforts to whip up the votes against Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, told Politico in an interview. Shortly after Trump announced Kavanaugh as his pick for the Supreme Court, Schumer released a...

    Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (W. Va.) had strong words for Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (N.Y.) efforts to unify the party against President Trump’s Supreme Court pick. Manchin suggested to Politico that Schumer does not have any influence over whether or not he supports Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination. “I’ll be 71 years old in August, you’re going to whip me? Kiss my you know what,” Manchin told Politico, referring to whipping votes among the party caucus. Schumer has spoken out harshly against Kavanaugh and vowed to oppose him “with everything I’ve got.” Democrats will need at least two GOP votes, in...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer on Friday called on President Trump to cancel his summit with Russian President Vladi­mir Putin in the wake 12 Russian intelligence officers being charged with conspiring to hack Democrats during the 2016 presidential campaign. “Glad-handing with Vladimir Putin on the heels of these indictments would be an insult to our democracy,” Schumer (N.Y.) said in a statement less than an hour after Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein detailed the new charges at a midday news conference. Trump is scheduled to meet with Putin on Monday in Helsinki. During a joint news conference Friday...

    ~snip~ Delay to defeat Democrats lack the votes to stop the nomination if no Republican senator breaks ranks, and some liberals urged a delay of the confirmation. During a noon conference call hosted by liberal activist groups, one tactician advocated a strategy of using Mr. Mueller’s Russia investigation as a reason to postpone a vote on Judge Kavanaugh, possibly until after November’s midterm elections. “We cannot rush this nomination,” said Leslie Proll, a civil rights lawyer who is advising the NAACP on judicial nominations. “There is a pending criminal investigation into the president. It would be irresponsible for the Senate...

    Top Democratic Sen. Charles E. Schumer shot down suggestions Tuesday that his party would boycott committee meetings or Senate floor action to try to derail President Trump’s Supreme Court pick. Liberal activists have demanded Mr. Schumer use every tool at his disposal to try to thwart the elevation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the high court, including parliamentary delays. Mr. Schumer, though, said there aren’t a lot of good tools left to the minority party to delay action now that both parties have curtailed the filibuster, and he said boycotting the committee or floor would just leave Republicans more space...

  • Vanity - Where, Oh Where is Barack Hussein Obama on the 2018 campaign trail?

    The American people/voters have been told openly by none other then the Democrat leaders in the House & Senate, Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer that Barack Hussein Obama will be the Democrat active political campaign Leader for the Mid-Term Election of 2018. It is now near the middle of July, 2018 and, the supposed great Democrat leader, Obama appears to be hiding out in his "Walled In", Washington, DC Mansion, rather then actively campaigning out on the political hustings. I suspect that Obama and his "Hate/Destroy" the American Republic allies are busy at work planning their evil goals. However, history...

    Add New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind of Brooklyn to the list of Democrats distancing themselves from the party's leaders. The lawmaker slammed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday for his attacks on President Trump in a new fundraising email. Instead of "villainizing" the White House and the "hard right," Hikind suggested Schumer and his fellow Democrats at least admit that the economy is improving and that there are radicals in their own party. He wrote his suggestions in a Facebook post. "You forgot to tell us about the economy," Hikind tells Schumer. "As good as it’s been, economists...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer reportedly asked President Trump to nominate Barack Obama’s Supreme Court pick this week; urging the Commander-in-Chief to put forward Merrick Garland to replace outgoing Justice Anthony Kennedy. According to the Hill, Schumer made the request in private; asking Trump to advance Garland after his nomination process stalled in 2016. “A person familiar with the conversation said on Thursday that Schumer told Trump in a phone call that lasted less than five minutes on Tuesday that the move would help unify the country,” writes the Hill. The Democratic leader penned an editorial in the New York...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) privately urged President Trump in a phone call earlier this week to nominate federal Judge Merrick B. Garland, then President Barack Obama’s third nominee to the Supreme Court who was summarily shunned by Senate Republicans in 2016, to replace retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. Trump had called Schumer on Tuesday afternoon for a Supreme Court-centered conversation that lasted less than five minutes, according to a person familiar with the call. Schumer, the person said, pressed the president to name Garland to succeed Kennedy, arguing doing so would help unite the country.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) attacked Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit on Monday, indicating that Democrats fear her appointment could be politically problematic. Sens. Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) are all from states that Trump won, and all are facing re-election this year. All three voted to confirm Justice Neil Gorsuch last year. Barrett is also from Indiana, the home state of Donnelly — and of Vice President Mike Pence. Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowsi (R-AK) are both considered moderate votes. Schumer may...

She passed his ‘litmus test’ on overturning Roe v. Wade & striking down the ACA. Here’s where she stands on Americans' big issues,” Schumer said in a series of tweets Monday. “Barrett attacked the...

Wade, the landmark decision that established a woman’s right to an abortion. Liberal activist groups are urging their supporters to attend a town hall meeting with Schumer in Brooklyn on Monday night and press him to commit to squeeze red-state Democrats who might feel pressure to back Trump’s pick. “We expect his constituents to be asking him really directly if he is going to commit to whipping the caucus and keeping...
