Posted on 07/21/2018 7:03:35 AM PDT by John Semmens
US Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) said he won't allow anymore meetings between President Trump and Russian President Putin "until I have seen a full transcript of their one-on-one private talks and am satisfied that Trump has not committed treason."
Even if Schumer's demand were not an egregious overstepping of his limited authority as Senate Minority Leader, its fulfillment is impeded by the fact that the one-on-one talk was not recorded. Nevertheless, Schumer was adamant that "the American people have a right to know what was said. His public statement expressing doubts about our own intelligence community's accuracy regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election displayed a breathtaking disloyalty to the brave men and women who are working diligently to save the country from the disastrous outcome of the 2016 election."
Undaunted by Schumer's demand, Trump has asked national security adviser John Bolton to work on setting up a second summit with Putin in Washington, DC for this Fall. "I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed, including stopping terrorism, security for Israel, and nuclear nonproliferation," Trump said.
"The list of items to be discussed and the timing of this planned summit are highly suspicious," the Schumer claimed. "At best, it would only serve to divert voters attention from the very serious allegations against Trump that have not yet been refuted. One the one hand, we have FBI agent Peter Strzok's text alleging that Trump is an idiot. Should we permit an idiot to deal with such volatile issues like terrorism and nuclear nonproliferation? On the other hand, many in Congress have leveled charges of treason against Trump. Should we permit a person charged with treason to deal with these issues? I think Trump should stand down from all presidential duties until these allegations have been conclusively disproved."
Schumer's perspective was shared by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who called "Trump's willingness to consider allowing Putin to ask questions of former ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul is troubling. For a president to not defend a US envoy is a clear case of gross negligence and dereliction of duty."
Putin wants to ask McFaul about a tax evasion and money laundering scheme that he alleges ended up diverting $400 million to the Clinton presidential campaign. Whether Trump's failure to immediately reject Putin's request is worse than President Obama's and Secretary of State Clinton's failure to attempt a rescue of America's Libyan Ambassador Christopher Stevens from the terrorists who ultimately murdered him seems dubious, at best.
As irrational as some of these leading Democratic politicians' hysteria over the summit may be, others went even further into loony land. CNN host Chris Cuomo characterized the Russian election meddling as "an act of war" and wondered "why aren't we talking about a retaliatory strike? I mean, if Bush could take us to war in Iraq in pursuit of non-existent weapons of mass destruction, why isn't anyone in Congress or the Administration working on a 'shock-and-awe' plan to teach Putin and his goons a stern lesson?" HuffPo's Mike Signorile, MarketWatch's Rex Nutting, Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), DNC chairman Tom Perez, and Hollywood actor-director Rob Reiner expressed similar sentiments, while Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) and CNN analyst Philip Mudd called for a military coup to overthrow President Trump.

Schumer can’t get no satisfaction. But, he tries, and he tries, and he tries, and he tries.
So who voted and made Schumer President?
It’s incredible to see how selfish and childish these politicians are now. They want the end of the freaking world over just an election result. And they call the other people crazy...
Poor Chuck and his Tantrums
There are jokes about insane people who once insisted they were NAPOLEON. It was, at the time, funny.
We are faced with an idiot who orates as though he were MR. PRESIDENT. He rants about the public sayings of the true President, while his own rantings make a pretty good evidential case for locking HIM up for the country’s safety.
He is also quite bad for my blood pressure issue.
I hope to live long enough to read Chuckie’s obit.
