Chuck Schumer Calls For Witnesses For Trump Trial; Rejected Witnesses For Clinton Back In 1999

Published

on

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced on Sunday that he wanted to summon four witnesses to testify as part of a Senate trial should the House impeach President Trump, but the hilariously ironic part of all this is that back in 1999, when former President Bill Clinton was impeached, he voted against calling witnesses.

Schumer, an ardent Democrat, was a brand spanking new senator back in 1999. One of his first votes in the chamber was to dismiss the case for impeachment against Bill Clinton, along with voting against a motion to subpoena witnesses in the case.

“I wonder if the House managers aren’t a little more interested in political theater than in actually getting to the bottom of the facts,” Schumer said on CBS at the time, explaining his objection to calling witnesses in the trial against Clinton.

Schumer argued the witnesses would provide nothing new in the case. “My view is we have heard from most of these witnesses over and over again. We’ve heard the same story.”

The Republican-led House impeached Clinton on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice, sending the matter to the Senate for six-week trial that acquitted the president.

Schumer sent out a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, calling for the Senate to subpoena testimony from senior adviser to the acting White House chief of staff Robert Blair, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, former National Security adviser John Bolton, and associate director for national security for the Office of Management and Budget Michael Duffey.

These four individuals have refused to show up for House impeachment proceedings despite being subpoenaed to make an appearance.

If you don’t think race-baiting pays well, just ask this co-founder of Black Lives Matter. Also, send a tweet Al Sharpton’s way – considering the guy has made a career out of it and became a multi-millionaire along the way. From The Daily Wire: After reports that a $1.4 million home in a secluded area of Los Angeles whose population is reputedly less than 2% black was sold to one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, some black conservative commentators took her to task. On Wednesday, dirt.com reported, “A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement.” Here’s a now-deleted tweet, mocking the BLM co-founder… VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gV19SstJcI

Man, has Joe Biden’s first 100 days in the White House been a gigantic catastrophe or what? The thing is, we all saw this coming – even liberals, deep down, knew that Biden’s policies wouldn’t work. But all that mattered was getting back at Trump for…being too good at being president and defending America? What a headache. From Reuters: WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The United States is considering a conditional cash transfer program to help address economic woes that lead migrants from certain Central American countries to trek north, as well as sending COVID-19 vaccines to those countries, a senior White House official told Reuters on Friday. The potential program would be targeted at people in the Northern Triangle region of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, Roberta Jacobson, the White House’s southern border coordinator, told Reuters in an interview, without saying who exactly would receive cash. Roughly 168,000 people were picked up by U.S. Border Patrol agents at the U.S.-Mexico border in March, the highest monthly tally since March 2001 and part of steadily increasing arrivals in recent months. Instead of doing this Joe, why not just go back to the way Trump was handling things at the border? Suck up the pride and do the right thing, man!
