Hypocrite Democrat Senate Minority Schumer to President Trump: Comey Firing a ‘Big Mistake’ … Isn’t This the Same Guy Who Said I Have No Confidence in Comey?
REALLY CHUCKY, IT WASN’T TOO LONG AGO YOU WERE CALLING FOR COMEY’S HEAD …
It would appear that Chuck Schumer was for the firing of FBI director James Comey before he was against it. Senate Minority leader took the podium with with moral condemnation of Comey. Schumer told Trump that it was a big mistake to fire Comey. REALLY? Who does not think that if Hillary won the 2016 presidency, God forbid, that she would have not fired him. Schumer said that the “first question” for the Trump administration is why the president decided to fire Comey now. The FBI is investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 White House race, as well as any connections between Trump’s campaign and Moscow.
But this is not what the two face, hypocritical Schumer was saying previously about James Comey. The duplicity of Schumer reeks of nothing more than partisan politics.
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) says he told President Trump that his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey was a “big mistake.
“Earlier this afternoon President Trump called me and informed me he was firing Director Comey,” Schumer told reporters on Tuesday. “I told the president, ‘Mr. President, with all due respect, you are making a big mistake.’ ”
He added that Trump didn’t “really respond” to his comment.
Trump wrote in a letter to Comey that the FBI has to restore “public trust and confidence.”
But wait, wasn’t it just last November 2016 when New York Sen. Chuck Schumer gave Comey a vote of no confidence and all but alluded to the fact that Comey would be fired once Hillary Clinton won? That is exactly what was said.
New York Sen. Chuck Schumer gave FBI Director James Comey a no-confidence vote in response to Comey’s revelation that the agency has reopened its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.
“I do not have confidence in him any longer,” the likely incoming leader of the Senate Democrats, told Bloomberg.
That statement raises the possibility that Democrats will try to oust Comey after the presidential election. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi hinted at the prospect Wednesday. “Maybe he’s not in the right job,” the California Democrat told CNN. “I think that we have to just get through this election and just see what the casualties are along the way.”
Comey rocked the presidential campaign when he sent a letter to lawmakers on Friday revealing that investigators had found a new batch of emails “pertinent” to the Clinton probe while conducting “an unrelated investigation.” The letter was at odds with the standard procedure of the FBI not to confirm or deny ongoing investigations, but Comey thought it was necessary because he testified before Congress that the Clinton probe was finished.
