Schumer viciously attacked President Trump on MSNBC Thursday morning; baselessly claiming “thousands of New Yorkers are dead” because the Commander-in-Chief “did nothing for a month.”
“There are thousands of my fellow New Yorkers who are dead right now and it can be directly attributed to the president’s lack of action, lying about this crisis. No question about it,” claimed Schumer.

“That’s why we don’t have testing, that’s why we’re not on top of this, because he swept it under the rug,” he added. “He did nothing for a month.”

COLLUSION COLLAPSE: Devin Nunes Promises ‘Criminal Referrals’ for Robert Mueller’s Team
Rep. Devin Nunes vowed to file “criminal referrals” for former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s legal team in the coming weeks after newly released transcripts and documents raise new questions over the controversial probe.
According to Fox News:
Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, vowed to pursue multiple new criminalreferrals amid the ongoing fallout of bombshell revelations in the Justice Department’s handling of the Russia probe.
Referring to former special counsel Robert Mueller, Nunes said: “We’re looking at doing criminal referrals on the Mueller team, the Mueller dossier team, the Mueller witch hunt, whatever you want to call it. That’s where we are now in our investigation.” Nunes made his remarks in a special new episode of Fox Nation’s“Witch Hunt,” hosted by Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett.
Last year, Nunes sent eight criminal referrals to U.S. Attorney General William Barr alleging several “potential violations” of the law in the course the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling and contacts with Trump advisers during the 2016 campaign.
Now in the wake of the Justice Department’s decision to drop charges against former Trump National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn, Nunes is turning his attention to the conduct of the special counsel, who was appointed after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

COLLUSION COLLAPSE: House Intel Committee Says 'NO EVIDENCE' of Russia-Trump Collusion
The House Intelligence Committee wrapped up its months-long investigation into allegations the Trump campaign worked with Russian officials throughout the 2016 election on Monday; releasing a detailed report that said investigators found “no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy.”
Despite special counsel Robert Mueller’s never-ending probe into the accusations, the House Committee officially revealed their own findings Monday afternoon; disclosing a one page summary of their findings.
“We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” said the document.
“The bottom line: The Russians did commit active measures against our election in ’16, and we think they will do that in the future,” said Rep. Conway of Texas, who was heading the probe. “We disagree with the narrative that they were trying to help Trump.”
Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the Committee, slammed the decision to end the investigation, saying “By ending its oversight role in the only authorized investigation in the House, the majority has placed the interests of protecting the president over protecting the country.”
“And history will judge its actions harshly,” he added.
