Schumer: GOP Must Investigate Trump Over Ukraine Scandal
In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer demanded that Republican lawmakers launch an investigation into the so-called whistleblower complaint that President Trump called Ukraine leader Volodymyr Zelensky to look into former VP Joe Biden’s son’s shady business deals in the Eastern European country.
“In the face of this dire warning and the Trump Administration’s effort to cover it up, the Republican-led Senate has remained silent and submissive, shying away from this institution’s constitutional obligation to conduct oversight,” Schumer wrote.
“The Republican Senate’s ‘see no evil, hear no evil’ attitude toward such a serious national security concern is unacceptable and must change,” he added, before calling on McConnell to hold hearings and issue a subpoena for the complaint.
In fact, the scandal is Joe Biden’s, but Democrats are trying to spin it against Trump.
