Grassley: Schumer Lied About Trump Investigation, Fed Media Hysteria

Candidate Donald Trump at debate

Mr. Trump's suggestion that someone else might have taped those conversations looks like more misdirection because it's highly unlikely that the National Security Agency or anyone else is taping the President in the Oval Office. Lahren says over images of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and Robert Mueller.

He went on to say, "At first most didn't believe it".

Grassley recalled when Schumer stated that the Senate should not confirm then Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch because Trump was under investigation. The media scoffed when they wrote what the president said in that letter. The president recently admitted to Fox News that he never did in fact tape Comey, he just pretended that he did, implying he was trying to keep Comey honest. We now know this was a bluff, perhaps meant to coax Mr. Comey to keep quiet about his conversations with Mr. Trump.

"He didn't just causally admit to misleading the American public", he said, "he also implied that doing so may have swayed Comey's testimony, which if that was his intent could constitute 'witness tampering.' And on top of all of that, he then implied he made Comey tell the truth about their conversations, seemingly verifying Comey's account, which is incredibly damaging to the president". Of course, the gang of eight includes Senate Minority Leader Senator Schumer.

The 45-second video, called "Witch Hunt", features Lahren making a case that the current investigation of any collusion between Russian Federation and Donald Trump to win the 2016 election is simply a political attack.

SpaceX set to launch satellites from California air base
But SpaceX did manage to safely recover the first stage after that launch, setting it up to fly again one day. Friday's first-stage looked to have a particularly rough landing, and appeared bent on the live video feed.

And of course that further helped feed media hysteria.

Grassley provides a specific example of Schumer's knowingly untrue public statements about the president being under investigation.

Schumer stated on the Senate floor back in March, "You can bet that if the shoe was on the other foot - and a Democratic president was under investigation by the FBI - that Republicans would be howling at the moon about filling a Supreme Court seat in such circumstances".

"And the whole time, he knew it wasn't true". "After all, they stopped a president who wasn't under investigation from filling a seat with almost a year left in his presidency".

"FBI director Comey leaks information to the press hoping to start an investigation", Lahren says.
