This got Chuck Schumer's knickers totally in a knot, and he responded in predictable scoundrel fashion, as reported by Chad Pergram:
Schumer: When Vladimir Putin says stoop, Senate Republicans are asking: how low? Putin..couldn't have cooked up a more useful tool for spreading conjured and baseless conspiracy theories than the one Chairmen Graham, Grassley and Johnson announced today.— Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) December 6, 2019
Schumer: Every day that Senate Republicans parrot Putin’s talking points further undermines our democracy— & our national security—& raises questions about why the Republican majority in the Senate continues to block legislation to better secure our elections from Putin’s assault— Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) December 6, 2019
This desperate attempt to resuscitate the lifeless corpse of the Russia Hoax may play with the low info NeverTrump crowd--maybe--but it probably won't go down well as Schumer tries to negotiate with McConnell for favorable Senate impeachment trial rules. An eventuality that remains to be seen.
So UpChuck Schumer has essentially accused three senators of being Russian assets doing the bidding of the Russian president. But remember, Trump is responsible for trashing the norms of conduct and propriety.ReplyDelete
Say what you will about Senatorial collegiality, decorum, and respect--but it's long gone.
Someone should warn Schumer that providing cover for a Conspiracy to Commit a coup d' etat on a duly elected POTUS makes him a co-conspirator to sedition after the fact.ReplyDelete
It might even be an impeachable act for a US Senator.
Perhaps his phone records should be subpoenaed, just for good measure, right Chucky?
Moral and intellectual bankruptcy.ReplyDelete
"...to better secure our elections...."ReplyDelete
So Chucky is on board with voter id, paper ballots and killing the Motor Voter Act? Next he'll be singing the praises of Election Day voting. Who'lda thunk it? (Had to beat Spellcheck into submission to type that;-)
