Chuck Schumer Demands Investigations of
Trump Firing NSC Staff

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 2/11/2020 7:24:52 PM

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Monday called on the nation’s 74 federal inspectors general (IGs) to protect whistleblowers from retaliation as President Donald Trump began purging Obama-era holdovers and other officials from his National Security Council (NSC). IGs are internal government watchdogs who are expected to operate independently of political leadership in government. Schumer’s call on Monday came in the wake of Trump’s decision last Friday to remove and reassign Lt. Col. Alex Vindman, a Ukraine expert on the NSC who testified in the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment probe. Last Friday, Trump also fired the NSC staffer’s twin brother — Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman —

Dang but I am fed up with Trump being accused of a crime when he is doing nothing but what is allowed as President.

Aren't both of them still LTCs in the military? Just transferred to a different duty station. They should be sent as Resource Management officers to Thule Air Base.

FTA, "The Senate majority leader". Even Breitbart knows Dems run the show. Sad how low folks think of McConnell that is doing a yeoman's job reshaping the formally Democrat owned Judical branch.

Schumer is like a snappy, barking little dog biting Trump's ankles. Trump should kick him away and not pay any attention to him. I think everyone is sick and tired of Schumer acting like HE is President. He is a NOBODY! Let Trump run the country and if YOU want to run the country, you have to go out and get yourself elected!

Ref #3. Don't screw up Thule. I'm sure there is an isolated military post where they absolutely need a "HERO" Purple Heart recipient. It would be interesting to read how he got his purple heart. Maybe it was like John Kerry (you know he served in Viet Nam) did.

That the NSC is the personal office staff of POTUS, and was only built-up to the 200-ish people under Obama, means it's way too big. That Chuck is upset, again, means they likely found the main culprits who've been leaking things to the Democrats. Also, have seen reports they know who "anonymous' is too. If so, they should ensure that person is escorted out of the WH in very public manner tomorrow.

Why not impeach him for it. Then try to embarrass the Senate to do the investigation. The democrat congresscritters proved that they just can't do a halfway decent investigation.

The Democrats need to learn to drop the word ‘demand’ when they are dealing with Trump. Schumer is not in a position to demand anything and a Republican Senate is not going to investigate actions taken by the President that are well within his rights to take. Schumer is fooling nobody with this drama.

As I’ve said before, the Democrat/mainstream media industrial complex all love to gush about the supposed political prowess of failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. But those of us in the cheap seats who marvel at her uncanny ability stick her foot in her mouth at every opportunity see things from a much more realistic perspective. Over the last few months, Clinton has had the audacity to lecture people against “witness intimidation” in the midst of speculation that Clinton pal Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself (some have suggested the Clinton machine had a hand in his death). In December when the articles of impeachment were announced,

The Democrat Party is deathly afraid of Bernie Sanders. The Party solons may like the enthusiasm and engagement of his base but greatly fear the possibility that he will lead the Democrat ticket this year. Why is that so? Because he isn’t even a Democrat – and has never been one, except beginning in 2015 for political expediency purposes in order to run in Democrat Party presidential primaries. He is a lifelong and self-described “Democratic Socialist” although he is registered as an “Independent.” And he has ripped off the masks of the Democrat Party to reveal the socialism

As my colleague Nick Arama reported here, it was a great night for Trump. With 97% of the New Hampshire primary results in, the President is at 85.7%. In other words, he’s now in Reagan territory. And Tuesday’s Republican turnout, currently around 120,000, far exceeds that of any other incumbent president seeking reelection. Although this is certainly good news, Republicans shouldn’t get too cocky because the Democrats had a very good night as well. The most updated figures (97%) show that 283,440 Democratic votes had been cast. Based on that number, 100% would bring it to approximately 292,200, which is significantly higher than Democratic turnout in 2016

On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace implied that Trump behaved vengefully by firing Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman after his impeachment acquittal. Wallace's guest, Republican advisor Karl Rove, said that Trump should be moving the country forward after his acquittal rather than passionately calling out the Democrats. I thought, “Are you guys nuts? Have you not been paying attention?” Deranged Democrats launched an unfair, corrupt and baseless impeachment hoax against Trump and the American people. Their hoax cruelly destroyed the lives of innocent people associated with Trump, while viciously attacking Trump's family. In their outrageous arrogance, Democrats actually tried to impeach Trump for simply functioning within his presidential authority

In a telling way, the current political scene is a replay of Herman Melville's 1851 novel, Moby Dick, with Donald Trump being the great white whale and the Democrats playing the role of the vengeful Captain Ahab. In the story, whaling captain Ahab is obsessed with killing Moby Dick. This is traced back to an event a year earlier on a whaling expedition in the Pacific. Then Moby Dick took one of Ahab's legs, "as a mower a blade of grass in the field." From then on, Ahab wore a peg leg carved from the jawbone of a sperm whale. The experience traumatized Ahab.

CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday night said the biggest story of the night is the fact that a former two-term Vice President isn’t even finishing top four in the New Hampshire primaries.

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire -- For a brief moment, concerned looks crossed the faces of some Elizabeth Warren supporters gathered for her election-night event in a cavernous building near the Manchester airport. There were no TVs visible to most of the crowd -- a common feature for a struggling campaign that doesn't want the audience to see bad news. There was no warm-up speaker. At 8:20 p.m., facing a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire after a third-place showing a week ago in Iowa, Warren walked onstage without fanfare. She began by acknowledging that Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg "had strong nights."

Two of the key witnesses in the Trump impeachment have been removed from their positions. Gordon Sondland is out as Ambassador to the European Union. Lt. Col Alexander Vindman has been reassigned from the National Security Council to the Pentagon. Democrats are crying foul, of course. But was it improper for Trump to take these personnel actions? Sondland’s case seems easy to me. Ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the President. Trump lost confidence in Sondland. Thus, his removal made sense. Vindman’s case is somewhat different and less easy for me. Unlike Sondland, he’s a career government employee and military man.
