    During a speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that it is in everyone’s interest “to keep the president away from the appropriations process and avoid another Trump shutdown before Christmas.” Schumer said, “I believe, left to our own devices, Congress could work through the final issues and make sure the government stays open. However, a report came out yesterday suggesting President Trump may refuse to sign any funding agreement without securing funding for his border wall first. … I hope cooler heads will prevail. I believe they will. But I’ve warned President...

    FULL TITLE: BREAKING: Anti-Trump CIA ‘Whistleblower’ Ciaramella Panicked After Caught Lying on ICIG Complaint: Tried to Revamp Statement on Oct. 8 After He Was Caught on Oct. 2 A photo of CIA whistleleaker Eric Ciaramella shaking Barack Obama’s hand in the Oval Office was published on a close friend’s wedding site last year.

    New York Senator Chuck Schumer has promised that if Democrats win the Senate in 2020, they’ll pass a law requiring that every car in America be electric by 2040. Chinese policymakers must be celebrating, because China makes the majority of the world’s batteries and has the most new battery factories under construction. The Chinese will need someone to buy all those batteries. This past summer, when China abandoned subsidies for electric vehicles (EVs), sales collapsed. China’s plan now is to require automakers to produce EVs, but at a paltry 3 percent to 4 percent of output. Perhaps Beijing will ultimately...

    In a bid to stay slightly more relevant in the midst of rapidly changing times, U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer has proposed a $454 billion plan to swap traditional gas-powered cars to electric vehicles, Automotive News reports. Not all of the $454 billion will go to consumers, though. Schumer’s plan includes billions in incentives for automakers to build or outfit EV factories as well as billions of dollars to improve the EV charging infrastructure. The 29 percent of greenhouse gas emissions produced by the “transportation sector” does not only cover new cars, though that’s what’s always targetted. It covers cars, trucks,...

Lead counsel on this high-profile case is the 36-year-old Bakaj, a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officer, who now works as the founding & managing partner of Compass Rose Legal...

This became self-evident when Pelosi announced her impeachment folly the day before she even set eyes on the alleged evidence, which turned out to be no evidence at all. The usual gaggle of misanthropes like Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff of California and Jerrold Nadler of New York have been searching for...

    Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs tore into Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for their roles in the impeachment inquiry against Trump. Dobbs also turned his ire towards the whistleblower, whose complaint sparked the impeachment inquiry, accusing Trump of inappropriately pushing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, while mentioning military aid in a phone call. The whistleblower is reportedly a CIA employee who was assigned to the White House. Pelosi officially endorsed the House's impeachment inquiry last week. "Ignorance of...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Sunday called on President Donald Trump to continue working with Congress on gun control measures despite Democrats' official impeachment inquiry over a call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Specifically, Schumer wants Trump to consider backing universal background checks, a bill known as HR 8 that passed in the House earlier this year. “Amidst the impeachment inquiry the gears of government can still move. Anyone who suggests otherwise is advancing a false narrative,” Schumer said at his Manhattan office on Sunday, the New York Post reported. “In fact, the best example of...

    Convinced that President Trump would never agree to release a transcript of his July phone call with Ukraine’s President Zelensky, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) was forced to change course when an unredacted copy landed on his desk this week. “This document does not contain the incriminating evidence we anticipated,” the Senator complained. “We are not assuaged. Let me remind everyone that President Trump is known to have made dozens of phone calls everyday. In order to put this one phone call in context we will need to see transcripts of all the calls he has made or received since his...

    Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer warned President Donald Trump on Sunday that any firearm legislation that falls short of universal background checks for gun sales “will not get the job done,” complicating delicate negotiations between the president and a group of senators. Trump has been discussing potential legislation with senators in both parties that would expand background checks but would not go as far as House-passed legislation that would apply them to all gun sales with limited exceptions. Trump issued a veto threat on the House’s background-checks bill earlier this year, and few Republicans in Congress support it....
