Schumer Invokes Rare Senate Two-Hour Rule To Block National Security Committee; Grassley Irritated!

Last week, Sen. Chuck Grassley told the world how Sen. Chuck Schumer knew there was no investigation into President Trump but told the media there was. Now the NY Senator is retaliating.

Schumer is not happy that Grassley spilled the beans how he was withholding pertinent information that would have cleared the minds of Americans to know their president wasn’t under FBI investigation. Schumer kept up with the facade for weeks, trying to push illogical conclusions and obstruct anything and everything done within the Trump administration.

Now Schumer is striking back. His childlike behavior has blocked a national security committee meeting led by Grassley with a rare Senate tactic.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer used an upper chamber procedure Wednesday to block a national security briefing hosted by the Senate Judiciary Committee, irritating Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.

The rule that Schumer had invoked, which he has been exercising the use of over the past two weeks, blocks Senate committee business from happening two hours after the Senate convenes session for the day.  Schumer has consistently used the procedure as a way to delay business in Senate to make demands on Republicans on the health care bill.

The rarely-used tactic has cut short a committee hearing on free speech, stopped a hearing on Russian meddling in the U.S. elections and blocked a mark-up to advance bipartisan anti-human trafficking legislation.

“The federal government’s primary responsibility is to protect the American people, so it’s unbelievable that the Minority Leader would block Senators from both parties from holding a national security briefing to examine our nation’s most critical tools to protect the homeland,” Sen. Grassley said in a statement.

Schumer and the Democrats have shown they don’t know how to lead or how to work with the opposition. They want things their way or nothing at all. With that said, any Amerian supporting these obstructionists on one hand and say they want America to work for the working man need to think their allegiance.

If you want to remain a member of the Democratic party, that’s fine. Choose new leaders who want to help make this country work and operate like it should. Why keep promoting and rewarding those who are attacking our institutions with emotionally tied tantrums that you would only see with children.

We can actually work together to fix this country but as long as Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters are obstructing without any plan of fixing, there’s going to be major problems.
