Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has vowed to do everything in his power to block the confirmation of a new FBI Director until a special prosecutor has been appointed to investigate the alleged Russian interference in last year’s election. The moment Schumer was elected to his powerful position, he vowed to block as many things as possible to stop President Donald Trump from accomplishing anything.
Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Sunday he would support blocking the nomination of a new FBI director until a special prosecutor is appointed to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“We will have to discuss it as a caucus, but I would support that move because who the FBI director is, is related to who the special prosecutor is,” Schumer told host Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“Yes, I think there are a lot of Democrats who feel that way,” he added.
Schumer said the special prosecutor would report to Congress instead of the Department of Justice or the White House to prevent the administration from trying to influence the probe’s findings…
It’s typical of the hypocrisy of congressional Democrats. They have spent the past 8 years accusing Republicans for not wanting to work with them on anything and for trying to block some of the things that Barack Obama wanted to accomplish. Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid refused to even read or allow many GOP House bills from being introduced into the Senate.
