Lies, misinformation and fake news have created a made up scandal surrounding Donald Trump and Russia.
But there was one lie that stood out from all the rest.
And Chuck Schumer finally got called out for telling it.
When former FBI Director James Comey announced the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia, Schumer and other liberals got a lot of mileage out of the revelation creating the false impression Trump himself was under investigation.
But that was a lie.
Trump was never under investigation.
Comey privately told key Senators – as well Trump himself – that the President was not a target of the probe.
Senator Chuck Grassley – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman – called Schumer out on the carpet for spreading this baseless claim.
“Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) blasted Democrats on Thursday — particularly Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) — for fueling media hysteria, knowing full well President Trump was not under investigation for collusion with Russia.
In a statement delivered on the Senate floor, Grassley said that in March, former FBI Director James Comey had told him, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and the group of Senate and House members known as the “Gang of Eight” that the president was not under investigation.
But Schumer, who is part of the Gang of Eight, continued to tell the media Trump was under investigation, Grassley said.
“That helped feed the media hysteria,” he said. “The Minority Leader even tried to say that the Senate shouldn’t vote on the Supreme Court nomination because the president was under investigation. And the whole time, he knew it wasn’t true.”
In once instance, Schumer told reporters on March 21, “There is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that’s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems very unseemly and there ought to be a delay.”
The most likely cause of Comey’s firing was that he would not say in public what he told multiple elected officials in private – namely that Trump was not under investigation.
When Trump said Russia was a cloud over his administration, he meant the FBI’s silence on his status allowed the likes of Chuck Schumer to cast suspicion on the White House and slow down the President’s agenda by falsely insinuating that Trump was under FBI investigation.
The truth comes out – Chuck Schumer isn’t the worst dem, he is just average!
Chuck Schumer is full of BS, and has Met his match w/Trump. Chuck is a pathetic individual for sure.
rump said it clean the SWAMP in Washington including Hillary.
These democrats want power more than life itself. They are a bunch of egotists who do not like to lose. Well, all you roaches like Schumer need eradicated like decon does real rodents. But not voting for them is a better solution.
The entire Democratic Party is totally corrupt. They will lie, steal, make back room deals which benefit their party, but then make up some b.s. om President Trump. Democrats lost the 2016 election because Hillary was a liar, crook, let four Amerians get killed on her watch, sold her office for money and favors. Then, you had Dumbo who had more scandals going than any President before him and half of the stuff is just now coming out. These people need to be IN PRISON, ALONG WITH GEORGE SOROS WHO IS INTERFERING IN EVERY ELECTION WE HAVE.
Typical of the garbage put out by “Chuck the schmuck”
Americans are about freedom, family, country and our Constitution. We are a country of laws and fairness.True Americans work hard, pay our bills and don’t expect anything for free. Unfortunately there are many people in America that want and expect everything for free. Those people need to go to a socialist country because here in the USA, you work, you get paid, you take care of your family and your bills..with pride!
I say let everyone in D.C. be made to enroll themselves and their families on Obamacare. Watch how fast they make changes. They are spoiled with the Elite health care they get…paid by all of us hard working Americans.
all these liberal democrats holding back progress should be investigated
Americans? What really are they.
Former FBI Director James Comey has a long history of involvement in Department of Justice actions that arguably ended up favorable to the Clintons. In 2001, following the original 9/11 mass murder by the Muslim jihadists, President Bush asked the FBI to track the movements of likely Muslim jihadists; Comey and Mueller refused that request on the basis that such tracking would be “un-American”. The jihadist mass murders of Americans in Boston, Chattanooga, Orlando, and San Bernardino are therefore the direct result of that refusal. In 2004, Comey, then serving as a deputy attorney general in the Justice Department, apparently limited the scope of the criminal investigation of Sandy Berger, which left out former Clinton administration officials who may have coordinated with Berger in his removal and destruction of classified records from the National Archives. The documents were relevant to the accusations that the Clinton administration was negligent in the build-up to the 9/11 terrorist attack. Back a year or two ago, FBI director Comey announced that despite the evidence of “extreme negligence” by Hillary Clinton and her top aides regarding the handling of classified information through her unprotected private email server, the FBI would not refer criminal charges to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Justice Department since it was just a case of negligence. Imagine a similar finding of the Nuremberg trials of the Nazi criminals: “Well – yes, Goebbels did order that 6 million Jews be exterminated – but he really did not mean it, so let him go free with an appropriate government pension”. And now those two criminals are “investigating” Russian influence in the Trump victory???
CHUCKY SMUKER AIN’T NO MAN HE’S A MORON.
As my comment was being posted, his mug was being shown again, and that particular photo brought something to mind. Does he work for ISIS?? They tend to shield themselves with Children, for some strange reason. In this case, he was caught lying, so he felt he had to block himself with a child. Not man enough to stand alone like a man and take it, Cryin’ Chucky???
Does Cryin’ Chuck not have any shame?? I guess not!! Anybody who will walk up to a couple who is having dinner in an eating establishment, and proceeds to tell the wife off, because she voted for Donald Trump, has no scruples!! This was a quiet restaurant, with a padded menu. Everyone was having a quiet dinner, when his God-awful voice should ring out, screaming at this poor Woman!! How embarrassing for her!! I would have tossed my water at him, and stepped away from the table, to use the rest room!!
Trump is a breath of fresh air !! The more I watch him the more I like him . Thank the Good Lord an outsider stepped in as we now have a chance to get Our Country Back !!
Thank Goodness for that . They have totally lost their minds . You look at schemer palosi warren sanders waters , all Scum ! Hope as they come up they loose their seats ! Their Hate is just firing up the Nutjobs on our streets ,them and the obumma Soros creeps .
I am so proud to be a Republican as I see what the democrats try to do to our Country and Society. Thank God someone like Trump came along to “Fight for Right “against the liberal left! Down with political correctness……
These democrats are insane and sociopathic crazies that just seem to be getting worse and worse as the days go on. We have a bunch of crazy democrats running our government and persuading other crazies to want to go out and try to hurt the other party! That’s what insane people do. They need serious help and they definitely do not need to have anything to do with governing this Country!
I guess that that “pushing grandma off a cliff in her wheelchair” stuff is to old for the liberals to reuse, eh?
Schumer is worse than Dirty Harry.
Chucky Shumer is the perfect poster boy for the Dems. Accomplished LIAR, just like Shillary Billy Boy and Oshama. Right on!
Chuckie the Muckraker – he’s eating doughnuts 100mph with the Russian Kislyak and trying to sell this fake Russian hacking crap involving President Trump to the American people between bites. He’s a fraud, always has been,
That ‘s not saying much
Schmucky Schumer is the poster child for political honesty. He has more credibility in his pinky, than the entire Democrapic Party.
The Democrat’s diktat is the Big Lie. There are numerous Americans whose news feedback is the MSM and the Goebbels Brigade within the Democrats and elsewhere. Totalitarians throughout history have placed trust the Big-Lie methodology to dupe the masses. Fortunately, although those choosing to be bilked by the perfidy of Schumer and others of his bilious-like, Americans, by and large, are politically savvier than the Schumers of this parasitical scourge, the Democrats and others of this toxic species.
All dem need to be in investigated they are not for the American people Garry
I think that it is actually good that these communists and the communist/fake need media keep lying. We proved in November 2016 that we don’t believe or tolerate all of the lies. I predict that the 2018 mid-term elections hold some very negative surprises for the communists.
Shame on those who fail to do what they were elected to do. It appears that mostly those in office are there to represent themselves and their party rather than for the benefit of our country and those those they are representing!
I Googled the Republican Medical draft for 2017 and I did not see any blood, people dying and all the garbage he is saying. That is so sad and I wished more people would read it and form their own opinion. Yes, it could use some changes, additions to make it better but there is no such thing that 25 million will not have any insurance.
Its SAD that people such as this feel the need to LIE to citizens with No real concerns for the welfare of the COUNTRY
As the king of a very small mountain, minority leader Schumer’s job is to represent the position of the party to which he belongs to the best of his ability. Since the party to which he belongs has been adequately revealed to be one of fake and misleading information, it is only natural for self-labelled “potentate” Schumer to lie with every utterance that he makes. Only the “fake news” media is interested in what he says.
