Democrat Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer Met with the Russians … Where is the Outrage?

THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF THE LEFT, SO I AM GUESSING DEMOCRATS WILL BE ASKING SCHUMER TO RESIGN?

With all the insanity from the LEFT that there is a connection between Trump and the Russians, because the LEFT just cannot accept losing an election, what about this? From the Gateway Pundit comes this inconvenient flashback for Democrats where in 2003, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) met not only with the Russians, but Vladimir Putin, himself, in New York City.

More from NTK on this Schumer meeting with the Russians. Not Trump, but Chucky Schumer. So where are the calls for Schumer to resign as Democrat Senate Minority leader? Come on folks, this man has met with Putin. Oh the double standard and hypocrisy.

Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has talked quite tough on Russia as of late. In December, he said Trump’s team is “far too close to Russia,” and added “[b]oth parties ought to be united in standing up to Russian interference.”

Schumer hasn’t always been so tough on Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In 2003, Schumer welcomed Putin to New York City as Russian oil company Lukoil opened a gas station in Manhattan.

The AP photo shows Putin and Schumer smiling, with coffee and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The caption reads:

Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, enjoys a Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee with Senator Charles Schumer from New York as Putin visits the first New York gas station of the Russian company Lukoil, Friday.

Schumer also said that day:

“When I showed the president of Russia a Krispy Kreme doughnut and he ate it and said it was good, that was one of the more surreal moments I’ve had in politic

Even with the Liberal MSM Giving President Trump KUDOS For Speech, Democrat Sen. Minority Leader Schumer Looks Small in His Criticism of Trump (VIDEO)

AS KENNY ROGERS SANG IN THE GAMBLER, SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA KNOW WHEN TO HOLD ‘EM, KNOW WHEN TO FOLD ‘EM,. KNOW WHEN TO WALK AWAY AND KNOW WHEN TO RUN … SCHUMER I WOULD SUGGEST THE LATTER.

Following President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress and the overwhelming approval and KUDOS from the MSM, liberal and conservative alike, that Donald Trump did amazingly well, Democrat Minority Leader Chuck Schumer came across as petty and small in his post speech criticism. My prediction, if Democrats continue to pander to their insane 20% of their base and do nothing but obstruct what the American people are asking for and continue to just act the fool, they will be destroyed in the 2018 midterm elections beyond repair.

At some point you have to tip your hat and move on. This insanoid obstruction to everything Trump has got to stop. Donald Trump asked all to work together for the American people and all Democrats responded with was obstruct, obstruct, obstruct. This will not play well with middle of the road individuals and Independents.

Senate Republicans State No Hearings & No Votes for Obama’s Supreme Court Pick Just Like Joe Biden Stated in 1992

SORRY DEMOCRATS, THE REPUBLICANS ARE JUST DOING WHAT JOE BIDEN HAD PREVIOUSLY SAID THE DEMOCRATS WOULD DO TO GEORGE H.W. BUSH …

Washington, DC is full of hypocrites and this time the Democrats are about to eat a great big hypocrisy sandwich. Yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced with the solidarity and united front of Republicans that there would be no hearings and no votes for any Supreme Court justice nominee until Obama is out of office. Obama, Biden, Schumer and the rest of the Democrats can all claim that they are outraged and this is a disgrace to the process, but they are all on record in the past of saying and doing the same thing. Actually in 1992 Biden stated as the head of the judiciary committee, “The Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling hearings on the nomination, until after the political campaign season is over.” As opined at Hot Air, Democrat Chucky Schumer is at a loss for words when trying to spin Biden’s comments. That’s a first.

We are going to hold the spineless McConnell and Senate Republicans to Mitch’s recent comment … There will be a political revolution if he goes back on these words.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told a group of staunch House conservatives there isn’t “a snowball’s chance in hell” that he will back down from his opposition to confirming a Supreme Court justice before a new president is elected.

Hypocrisy Meter

Senate Republicans on Tuesday united behind an official position on how to deal with President Obama’s expected nominee to replace the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia: no hearings, no votes and no new justice until Obama is out of office.

“Presidents have a right to nominate, just as the Senate has its constitutional right to provide or withhold consent,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said in a morning floor speech. “In this case, the Senate will withhold it.”

That declaration was underscored after McConnell held a closed-door meeting with Republicans sitting on the Senate Judiciary Committee. All 11 GOP panel members subsequently signed a letter pledging not to hold hearings on any replacement for Scalia until a new president is inaugurated.

Their decision not to act, they said, was “based on constitutional principle and born of a necessity to protect the will of the American people.” But Republican senators have also been emboldened in recent days by past statements from Democratic senators arguing against confirming the judicial nominees of Republican presidents in election years.

In particularly heavy rotation Tuesday was Vice President Biden’s 1992 suggestion, made when he was a senator and chairman of the Judiciary Committee, that the panel ought to “seriously consider” not holding hearings on an election-year Supreme Court nominee.

Two Faces of Democrat Chucky Schumer … FLASHBACK: In 2007, Schumer Called For Blocking All Bush Supreme Court Nominations (VIDEO)

The lying, duplicitous, double-talking Democrat Chucky Schumer was against lame duck presidential SCOTUS appointments, before he was for it …

So Schumer was all for the status quo of the balance of power of the SCOTUS in 2007, why not now? Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer took to the Sunday talk shows to state that the Republicans had no right to block Barack Obama from appointing a new SCOTUS following the sudden death Justice Antonin Scalia over the weekend. Scumer was appalled that the GOP would do such a thing. REALLY? It was just in 2007 while GWB was in his final 18 months of his presidency that Schumer stated the exactly same thing. The hypocritical Schumer vowed not to confirm any justices for the remainder of Bush’s term in office. But of course this is different, because an Obama nominee would be a liberal ideologue.

“We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court except in extraordinary circumstances … Considering the Constitutional harm and dramatic departures that are in store if those few are joined by one more ideological ally … I will do everything in my power to prevent one more ideological ally from joining Roberts and Alito on the court.”

Now all of a sudden Schumer is whining and crying a river of obstruction when they , namely he, stated to do the same. Schumer stated in his ABC interview, we Democrats didn’t do it. REALLY?

The Daily Caller:

During a Sunday morning appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer decried the intent of many Senate Republicans to prevent President Barack Obama from appointing the successor to deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

But less than a decade ago, Schumer advocated doing the same exact thing if any additional Supreme Court vacancies opened under former President George W. Bush.

Almost immediately after Scalia’s death was announced Saturday evening, Republican lawmakers and presidential candidates began arguing the appointment of his successor should be left to the next president. Schumer lamented this outlook as pure obstructionism.

Hmm … Schumer claims the Democrats have never done this before … can you say BORK?

On MSNBC Donald Trump Touts Friendship With Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer

DONALD TRUMP SAID WHAT!!!

Donald Trump in an MSNBC interview that he gets along with three of the most vile Democrats out there, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Chucky Schumer. Trump then went on to say that he would work with Democrats. WHAT!!! Dude, if elected you are about to be handed the presidency with a GOP controlled House and Senate, and you are going to be working with Democrats? Sorry, but the only way we are ever going to be able to fix this country is do nothing what Pelosi, Reid and Schumer want. It is their polices and Obama’s that have been driven down our throats without our buy in that have caused the damage.

“I always had a great relationship with Harry Reid. And frankly, if I weren’t running for office I’d be able to deal with her [Pelosi], I’d be able to deal with Reid, I’d be able to deal with anybody.”

The Hill:

People better take a good listen to what this man is saying before the vote. He has only praise for these three shrill Democrats but can say nothing good about his Republican presidential contenders?

“I think I’m going to be able to get along with Pelosi — I’ve always had a good relationship with Nancy Pelosi,” Trump said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” referring to the House minority leader.

“Reid’s going to be gone. I’ve always had a decent relationship with Reid,” Trump said, referring to Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the Senate minority leader. “I always had a great relationship with Harry Reid.”

Trump said he thought he’d get along with “just about everybody,” including Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), likely to be the next Senate Democratic leader, who Trump said he was “close to … in many in ways.”

The real estate mogul is targeting GOP rival Ted Cruz, against whom Trump is running neck and neck in Iowa a week out from the state’s caucuses. Trump argues that the Texas senator won’t work with others in Congress and that while both candidates have positioned themselves as political outsiders, Trump argues even Republicans don’t want Cruz.

“He is a guy that nobody likes and nobody trusts,” Trump said on MSNBC before reiterating that Cruz “is a nasty guy, he says things that are very nasty, so I have to be nastier than him and it’s just one of those things.”

“I’ve been in politics all my life, I’ve been dealing with politicians all my life,” Trump said of whether he would have any friends in Congress.
