    Tensions are flaring in the Senate as Republicans prepare to ramp up their investigations into Obama-era officials. Amid public and private pressure from President Trump, GOP senators are increasingly embracing calls to use their congressional power to investigate some of Trump’s biggest grievances stemming from the Obama administration, including the origins of the Russia investigation, the court established by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and Hunter Biden. Democrats argue Republicans are using their committee gavels to probe Trump’s political enemies, an effort they say is designed to hunt for political fodder against former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive...
  • Joe Scarborough: 'Let Me Assure You'—Trump Not Taking Hydroxychloroquine

    Yesterday, we noted MSNBC's John Heilemann saying there was a "high probability" that President Trump is not taking hydroxychloroquine. Joe Scarborough took things a huge step further on today's Morning Joe, flatly asserting that the president is lying. Scarborough claimed that President Trump announced he was taking the drug in order to distract Americans from, among other things, the virus death toll that has now exceeded 90,000. Notice how they always slam conservatives for "conspiracy theories," but they're always unspooling Trump conspiracy theories themselves. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Media heads explode after Trump reveals he’s taking Hydroxychloroquine: Trump appears to relish the reaction

    President Trump reignited the media firestorm over his endorsement of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) as a prophylactic against and treatment for coronavirus, revealing in response to  question that he is currently taking the drug and has been doing so for about two weeks. To my eyes, he appeared to relish the bewilderment and outrage that immediately started brewing among the media facing him. Watch all four minutes for yourself: I happened to be watching Neil Cavuto’s Fox News show when the program cut away to President Trump answering reporters’ questions following his meeting with restaurant industry executives, and so had the...
  • Sen. Schumer: Trump's statements on Hydroxychloroquine 'is reckless, reckless, reckless': Speculates that Trump is lying about taking it

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday accused President Trump of “giving people false hope” after the president revealed earlier that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine despite a lack of evidence proving the drug to be effective in treating and preventing the novel coronavirus. “What the president did with hydroxychloroquine was reckless, simply reckless,” Schumer during an appearance on MSNBC. The New York Democrat also said that Trump was “giving people false hope” with his comments and said “people may take it instead of going to the doctor.” “But it’s worse than that,” he continued. “His own FDA has...
  • Sen. John Cornyn Counters Democrats: Enough Gun Control Already

    05/18/2020 12:10:36 PM PDT · by rktman · 15 replies ^ | 5/16/2020 | AWR Hawkins
    Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) countered a Democrat-led push for more regulations on “ghost guns” by making clear his belief that there is enough gun control already. On May 15, 2020, Breitbart News reported that Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and other Democrats are demanding background checks for “ghost guns” and kits containing parts that can be used to build guns. The Mike Bloomberg-founded gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety, supports the Democrat push. Politico quoted Sen. Cornyn in a way that gave readers the impression that he also supported the advocacy. They reported that Cornyn “might...

    Chuck Schumer: We can't let protestors with "automatic weapons" determine our re-opening policies.--------------- Well, Chuck, we can't let firearm policies be set by senators as ignorant as you about firearms! Can gun control advocates like Schumer truly be this ignorant? No matter how many times they are corrected about the difference between semi-automatics and automatics, they continue making stupid statements like this.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is itching to hear from Dr. Anthony Fauci as he testifies before the Senate Health Committee Tuesday morning. The Democrat believes that without President Trump looking over his shoulder, Fauci can tell them how he really feels about the administration. "Fauci has a huge amount of respect and it seems at times he's muzzled by the president," Schumer said. "The president is always lurking over his shoulder. This is the first time we get to hear him without the president looking over his shoulder or cutting him off or cutting the reporter off who asks...

    In eager anticipation of the Senate's virtual hearings with four top doctors from President Trump's coronavirus task force, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., urged Dr. Anthony Fauci to "let it rip." Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is scheduled to testify for the first time before the Senate Health Committee on Tuesday about the way Trump has responded to the coronavirus pandemic. "Until now, we've mostly heard from the members of the coronavirus task force through the distorted lens of the White House press conference where the president often prevents them from answering...

    * 48% of voters view Biden unfavorably, up 3 points since the surge of Tara Reade coverage, while 43% view him favorably, down 2 points since then. * Voters who dislike both Trump and Biden overwhelmingly back Biden, 46% to 14%, in a head-to-head matchup. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Tara Reade’s allegation that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her when he was a senator in 1993 is one of the few non-coronavirus stories to have broken through to voters amid the pandemic, and it appears to be taking a toll on the former vice president’s popularity.

    Sen. Chuck Schumer said he accepts Joe Biden’s response to former aide Tara Reade’s accusation that he sexually assaulted her in a Senate hallway in 1993. “I have heard Joe Biden’s explanation, and I think it’s sufficient,” Schumer, a New York Democrat, told reporters Tuesday. No Senate Democrat has said they will abandon support of Biden as a result of Reade’s accusation.

    Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) on Tuesday incredulously demanded to know “what planet” (President Trump) is living on after Trump said during a press conference on coronavirus testing that the U.S. had "met the moment" and "prevailed. Schumer blasted Trump on the Senate floor for “a stunning disregard for the truth.”

    Despite the warnings around taking hydroxychloroquine to combat the symptoms of COVID-19, prescriptions in France have increased by as much as 7,000% in certain parts of the country since the pandemic began. As reported by La Provence, a study looking at the 466 million French prescriptions written since the pandemic began in France, show a huge spike in doctors prescribing the drug. In the last week of March, for instance, over 10,000 people were prescribed hydroxychloroquine in Marseille alone. In France and the U.S., the use of hydroxychloroquine has been fraught between those who think the risks are small enough...
  • Senator Schumer To VA: Why Are You Using An Unproven Drug, Hydroxychloroquine On Vets With COVID-19?

    05/10/2020 11:30:40 AM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 108 replies
    The Senate’s top Democrat on Sunday called on the Department of Veterans Affairs to explain why it allowed the use of an unproven drug on veterans for the coronavirus, saying patients may have been put at unnecessary risk. Sen. Charles Schumer of New York said the VA needs to provide Congress more information about a recent bulk order for $208,000 worth of hydroxychloroquine. President Donald Trump has heavily promoted the malaria drug, without evidence, as a treatment for COVID-19. Schumer's request comes after a whistleblower complaint filed this past week by former Health and Human Services official Rick Bright alleged...

    You understand why San Fran Nan wonÂ’t call the House back in session, right? ItÂ’s because she and Chuck Schumer are trying to shame Mitch McConnell into keeping the Senate shut down. Why? Well, itÂ’s obvious: They want to keep the Senate shut down in order to prevent the confirmation of President TrumpÂ’s judicial nominees and other key nominees like John Ratcliffe, who is up to become the Director of National Intelligence. Luckily, McConnell is having none of it, and called the Senate back into session this week with his main goal to specifically get those nominees moving again. He...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is expected to introduce a provision to prevent President Trump’s signature from appearing on stimulus checks as part of the next coronavirus relief package, he announced this week. Schumer plans to introduce the “No PR Act,” which would effectively prevent federal dollars from going toward “any material that promotes the names or signatures of Trump or Vice President Mike Pence,” according to Politico.

    Democratic leaders in Congress continued on Sunday to remain quiet on the sexual assault allegations leveled against their party’s presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden, even as anger over the accusations mounted from the party’s more progressive wing. Neither House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., nor Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., have made any public comment about the allegations by Tara Reade, a staffer for Biden in 1993, that the then-senator from Delaware sexually assaulted her. Pelosi and Schumer’s offices did not return Fox News request for comment. There is growing anger from both progressive Democrats and supporters of the #MeToo...

    Remember "cash for clunkers"?  It's baaack. Sen. Chuck Schumer has a new proposal to have everyone turn in their cars and get in return a supposedly clean, green, nifty, electric vehicle.  WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senator Chuck Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, late on Thursday proposed a $454 billion plan over 10 years to help shift the United States away from gasoline-powered vehicles by offering cash vouchers to help Americans buy cleaner vehicles. Schumer said in a statement that his plan, which would provide rebates of $3,000 or more to individual buyers, would help transition 25% of the U.S. fleet, or...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and President Trump’s newly installed Chief of Staff Mark Meadows discussed appointing a czar to oversee production and distribution of medical supplies and equipment to help combat the novel coronavirus, Fox News has learned. Schumer, D-N.Y., and Meadows spoke over the phone Sunday night about the federal response to COVID-19, specifically, with respect to the administration’s efforts in New York, which has become the epicenter of the virus in the U.S. A source familiar with the phone call told Fox News that Schumer urged Meadows to have the president fully invoke the Defense Production Act,...

    Everyone knows that Sen. Charles Schumer went off the rails by threatening two sitting Supreme Court Justices because he believes they will vote against an upcoming abortion-rights case. But little attention has been given to the hysterical reaction of two members of “The Squad”: Rep. Ayanna Pressley and Rep. Rashida Tlaib. Pressley said that “reproductive justice is racial justice.” This is the kind of statement we would expect from the Klan. We would not expect this from a black woman. Blacks, who are 13% of the population, account for 36% of all abortions. Pressley needs to explain why this is...
