It is no secret that liberal politicians can be petty, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer just took it to a whole other level.

In the past few months of President Trump’s term, he has tried to block legislations, denounce him as President, and make wild accusations about his character.

Now, he is taking it one step further and trying to stop a major change from taking place, one that would help ensure our national security.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer claims he will support a proposal made by Senator Mark Warner to block the confirmation of the next FBI director until an investigation into Russia’s ties with President Trump has taken place.

But fortunately, under a filibuster rule change initiated by past Majority Leader Harry Reid in 2013, the Senate minority cannot actually block the confirmation of any executive branch appointees.

So what then is the point?

It seems that Schumer simply wants to remain a nuisance and make unreasonable claims about President Trump and his character,

It has already been decided by members of both parties that Trump is not under investigation, and any investigation that remains is of lower-level members.

Breitbart News reports:

There is almost no Republican support for a special prosecutor — largely because there are no crimes yet to prosecute. President Donald Trump is not even under investigation. The FBI’s inquiry has reportedly centered around three Trump campaign aides who played minor roles, and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Even perennial gadfly Sen. John McCain has only called for a select committee, not a special prosecutor.

Ultimately, Schumer is just trying to block progress from being made in this country.

While many Democrats called for Comey to be fired during the investigation of Hillary Clinton and her private email server, they quickly became hypocritical when Trump made it happen.

The Trump administration has interviewed several candidates for the job, and is set to name a new FBI director shortly.

Breitbart News reports:

Also, as Breitbart News’ Ken Klukowski has pointed out, Trump was within his legal authority to fire former FBI Director James Comey — something Democrats had demanded for months. Moreover, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who was confirmed last month by the Senate in a 94-6 vote, is overseeing the Russian investigation, with which Trump has not interfered — even if he has objected to the way it is being used by Democrats to justify their 2016 losses and rally political enthusiasm among their frustrated left-wing base.

The Trump administration reportedly interviewed eight possible candidates to replace Comedy this weekend, and more continue to be proposed.

Comey’s firing was justified by his complete lack of competency, and at one point, Democrats understood that.

A new leader must be put into place to oversee the FBI and bring it into a stronger, more organized direction, and Chuck Schumer must realize he has no power to stop the President from appointing a new FBI Director.

Do you think Schumer is just making empty threats?
