Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was widely panned Monday for his demands for “impeachment fairness” should a trial be held in the US Senate.
“’Let us hope that fairness will prevail’ a laughable quote from @SenSchumer this AM….after the dems release an ‘impeachment report’ in the middle of the night. Thankfully the people of this country continue to see the partisan sham that this is,” posted White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham on social media.

“He should have talked to Schiff, Nadler, and Pelosi. They dropped their demands for this testimony when it became apparent that witnesses were going to seek court guidance on competing demands. Schiff dropped the ball,” added Sen. John Cornyn.

CHUCK’S BAD DAY: Schumer Backtracks from Trump Impeachment Plot, Says he Misheard Question
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.”

CRYIN' FOUL: Schumer Warns Senate Impeachment Trial Could be ‘Very Partisan, Very Unfair’ for Democrats
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is already complaining about a potential impeachment trial in the US Senate; saying the process will likely be “very partisan” and “very unfair” for Democratic lawmakers.
“As you know, the House is expected to vote on the Articles of Impeachment this week. Assuming the Article are adopted, the Senate will serve as a court of impeachment. Conducting an impeachment trial in the Senate is an incredibly solemn responsibility,” said Schumer.
“Senate Democrats believe strongly that the trial must be fair, and it’s very important that the American people judge it to be fair,” added Schumer, complaining Senator Mitch McConnell’s handling of the process has been “very partisan, very slanted, and very unfair.”
