Senate Minority Leader Chuck “Road Block” Schumer has only one tool in his toolbox. That tool is “obstruction.” The Senator has painted himself into a corner by taking the position that he cannot and will not work with the Trump administration. He has left himself no wiggle room and no way out. He would pull the national house down around his ears if that is what it takes to restore himself to power. But I digress. Watch the video and draw your won conclusions.
As Written By Jazz Shaw for Hot Air:
I’m old enough to remember when the Republicans were in the minority in Congress and the Democrats held the White House as well. At that time, the GOP was popularly referred to as the Party of No, and some outlets like the Huffington Post were not only applying that tag to them, but calling for the party to be abolished as a result of it.

The “who” portion of the question is up to the President for now, but Schumer sounds like he’s made up his mind about when. During an interview with Jake Tapper yesterday, Senator Schumer sounded for all the world as if he’s ready to stonewall any nomination unless there is first a special prosecutor appointed in the Russia investigation.

Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, proposed the idea after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last week.
