The Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is no friend of Republicans or Trump. On Labor day he let slip how he really felt, despite his constant calls to stop Maxine and other Democrats that are calling for Trump’s Impeachment.
But now there are claims from his fellow Liberals that he is not doing enough. Schumer is being accused of failing to do his job in stopping the Kavanaugh appointment. Which is odd considering the Republicans control the Senate and don’t need the help of Democrats for his appointment.
“The Supreme Court is on the line, and you are failing us,” they (fellow Democrats) wrote in a letter [to Schumer] Wednesday morning.
“Your job as Senate Democratic leader is to lead your caucus in complete opposition to Trump’s attempted Supreme Court takeover and to defend everyone threatened by a Trump Supreme Court,” the groups wrote. “But unbelievably, nearly two dozen Democrats have still not come out against Kavanaugh, and just last week, you helped Majority Leader Mitch McConnell fast track 15 Trump judicial nominees.”
“That is not the leadership we need,” they warned.
“Your strategy to sacrifice the Supreme Court in order to hold Democratic Senate seats is not only strategically and morally wrong, it will fail,” they wrote. “It is wrong to assume that a no vote on Kavanaugh puts red-state Democrats in electoral peril or somehow protects them from Republican attacks.”
“It concluded by saying failure to hold all 49 Democrats against Kavanaugh would be a “massive failure of your leadership.” The letter was signed by CREDO, Democracy for America, Friends of the Earth, Demand Progress and others.”
I wonder if this means the Democrats are looking to get rid of Schumer. It could be they simply looking for a scapegoat for when Kavanaugh becomes official. But either way, this is good news let the Democrats come after each other. The more divided they become the better.
