Senator Chuck Grassley, the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, ripped Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday for misleading the public over the never-ending Russia-Trump witch hunt, saying Schumer “knew it wasn’t true” but helped fuel the “media hysteria” regardless.
Speaking before lawmakers, Grassley slammed Schumer’s months-long insinuation that President Trump was under FBI investigation. He even tried to use the rationale to stop the confirmation of a Supreme Court nominee while knowing that no such investigation was taking place.
As reported by http: hannity.com:
“The truth finally came out. The FBI was not investigating President Trump in the Russia probe. So, the media was wrong. So, the Democrats were wrong. So, the wild speculation and conspiracy theories ended up harming our country, they played right into Russia’s hands.” Grassley said.
“Even after Mr. Comey told the gang of eight that the president was not under investigation, the Minority Leader told the media that the president was under investigation. And, of course that further helped feed media hysteria,” said the Senate Judiciary Chair. “The Minority Leader even tried to say that the senate shouldn’t vote on the supreme court nomination because the president was under investigation. And the whole time he knew it wasn’t true.”
