    Schumer to Biden on the midterms: "It looks like the debate didn't hurt us too much in Pennsylvania as of today, so that's good...we're picking up steam in Nevada...The state where we're going downhill is Georgia. It's hard to believe that they will go for Herschel Walker."

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday blasted Fox News as “cowardly” for deciding not to televise the highly anticipated prime-time hearing later this week by the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot. “Few things obstruct the American people from hearing the truth more than Fox News’s cowardly decision not to broadcast Thursday’s hearing,” he said at a press conference after the weekly Senate lunch.

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Tuesday that he is working with Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and other Republicans to try to find a way to pay for new coronavirus relief funding after it was dropped from a massive government spending bill earlier this month. "We are trying to get COVID relief. I'm working with Senator Romney and other Republicans in good faith to find some pay fors that are acceptable to Democrats and Republicans in the House and the Senate. We hope to get it done," Schumer told reporters.
  • Schumer, Who Accused Trump of Russian Collusion, is Getting Paid by Putin

    So is every top Democrat who accused President Trump of Russian collusion. “A single, ominous question now hangs over the White House: What could possibly cause President Trump to put the interests of Russia over those of the United States?” Senator Schumer insinuated in 2018. Why is Schumer putting Russia’s interests ahead of those of the United States by blocking Nord Stream 2 sanctions on Putin’s pet pipeline into Europe? Schumer, along with a number of other top Democrats, is a beneficiary of campaign contributions from top Democrat fundraiser Vincent Roberti whose lobbying firm was paid over $8.5 million by...

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) says he will schedule a vote soon to repeal the 2002 Iraq War resolution, a proposal that has strong bipartisan support but has languished in Congress for years. Schumer announced Tuesday after a meeting of the Senate Democratic Caucus that he will move to fulfill his pledge to wipe the authorization for use of military force (AUMF) from the books, so that President Biden or any future president would need new authorization from Congress to launch military operations in Iraq. “It’s ... my plan to hold a vote on repealing the 2002 Iraq AUMF....

Joe Manchin’s refusal to back a climate change package that is the centerpiece of Joe Biden’s plan to shift away from carbon-based energy production and dramatically reduce emissions to meet global objectives is endangering passage of a bipartisan infrastructure bill already passed in the Senate as well as the president’s larger $3.5 trillion social spending measure.“Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer’s (D‑N.Y.) two-track strategy for passing Biden’s agenda was based on the expectation that Manchin would give ground to progressives in exchange for their support of the hard infrastructure bill that he and Sen....

    On July 11, the American Jewish establishment tried to prove that it could fight anti-Semitism and be progressive at the same time. It failed. Outside of Congress that day, dozens of American Jewish groups co-sponsored a rally against the rising tide of Jew-hatred in America. The organizers had hoped that tens of thousands would show up for the event, and for good reason. In April 2002, a hundred thousand American Jews from all over the country congregated in Washington on short notice to rally in support of Israel during “Operation Defensive Shield.” And here they were supposed to rally...

    Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough has effectively ruled that only one more automatic budget reconciliation is permissible this year, dealing a blow to Democrats who previously thought they would have two more chances to sidestep Republicans in advancing President Biden's agenda. MacDonough ruled that a revision to the 2021 budget resolution cannot be automatically discharged from the Senate Budget Committee, meaning Democrats would need at least one Republican on the 11-11 panel to vote with them. The bombshell ruling effectively means Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) will be able to use only one more reconciliation vehicle to pass Biden's key...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) vowed Tuesday to hold a vote on legislation forming a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, daring Republicans to oppose an effort that has bipartisan support in both houses of Congress. “Republicans can let their constituents know, are they on the side of truth [or] want to cover up for the insurrectionists and for Donald Trump?” Schumer asked at a weekly press conference.

    Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick was killed during the invasion at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. The media ran with the story that Officer Sicknick was beaten over the head with a fire extinguisher by Trump supporters. It was only later that the facts came out. Propublica reported that Sicknick told his brother he was merely pepper-sprayed. But according to Officer Sicknick’s family, he suffered from a blood clot and stroke and was put on a ventilator, according to Western Journal. Officer Sicknick’s family begged that his death not become a political ping-pong ball. But it looks...

    What a dark day for America. Democrats are now allowed to make any changes to election law whenever they feel necessary without consequence. The Supreme Court also threw out Attorney Lin Wood’s election challenge without comment. The Supreme Court turned down EVERY SINGLE election case this year without comment. What a tragedy. It was the Trump Wisconsin case that was dismissed this morning.

    Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) is grinding the gears of the Senate to a halt as it seeks to move forward with President Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill. It is just the latest step by Johnson, who is up for reelection in a state narrowly won by Biden, to burnish his Trump credentials, whether that’s by repeating unfounded theories about the Jan. 6 attack or becoming the face of GOP opposition to the coronavirus bill that is broadly popular even among Republicans. Johnson is taking a two-pronged approach to his hardball tactics: First, he’s forcing the Senate clerks to read...

    The Senate sent a strong signal Tuesday that there are not nearly enough votes to convict President Trump in an impeachment trial when only five GOP senators rejected an effort by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to declare the looming trial unconstitutional. The Senate voted 55-45 to set aside Paul's motion, with all but five GOP senators siding with Paul. GOP Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah), Ben Sasse (Neb.), Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Pat Toomey (Pa.) voted with Democrats to table Paul's point of order. The vote is the clearest sign yet that Trump is heading toward a second...

The swamp knows that Trump won the 2020 election and still has a solid base of tens of millions of supporters so they are working to bar Trump from ever running for office. The House voted 232-197 to impeach Trump last week – 10 Republican traitors joined the Democrats and voted in favor of impeachment. Speaker Pelosi will send the articles of impeachment to the senate on Monday. Pelosi and the Democrats have accused Trump of...

    Don’t do it AOC! That’s the warning New York’s Democratic party boss has for the sophomore Congresswoman, who is rumored to be mulling a primary challenge to US Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer. “I think it would be a primary driven by ambition more than by need,” Jay Jacobs told The Post. “Chuck Schumer has been a progressive force in the state for decades,” added the chairman of the state Democratic committee. “She has a constituency that admires her and supports her, and they’re in her community, and I think it would be a loss for them if she were...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer invoked the "two-hour rule" Tuesday, a measure that constrains the scheduling and duration of Senate committee meetings. The move is intended to retaliate against Republicans, who have agreed to vote on confirming President Trump's nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death. Under the rule, no Senate committee or subcommittee can meet after the Senate has been in session for two hours or after 2 p.m. The move potentially delays a briefing on national security and a confirmation hearing for Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Sunday called for voters to fight against the confirmation of President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, speaking at a joint media event called to discuss the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "Call you senator and tell them not to listen to Mitch McConnell, not to be afraid of Mitch McConnell, to stand up and do the right thing," Schumer said, referencing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) plans to hold a vote to confirm Trump's nominee to replace Ginsburg. Ginsburg died Friday due to complications of metastatic pancreas...
