Senator Chuck Schumer’s office released an official statement Tuesday surrounding the liberal legislator’s recent call for President Trump’s impeachment; claiming the Senate Minority Leader misheard the question while speaking with supporters.
Schumer raised eyebrows throughout Washington on an already chaotic day when he shockingly admitted Trump’s impeachment will happen “the sooner the better.”
According to the Senator’s office, he thought the supporter asked “When will you defeat Trump?” rather than “impeach Trump?”
“After a number of questions along the parade route about the fate of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, the Senator believed he was being asked, ‘when will you defeat Trump,’ and responded, ‘the sooner the better,’ noting that we need Republicans to defeat the nomination,” Schumer spokesman Matt House said. “As he has said many times and continues to believe, talk of impeachment is premature, and Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation should be allowed to continue without any interference.”
