Charles Schumer Just Snubbed Trump By Calling His Assault On Mueller A “Constitutional Crisis”

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer stepped forth on Wednesday cautioned that attempts by President Trump or a successor to Attorney General Jeff Sessions to meddle in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe would spurn a “constitutional crisis.”

“I’d say this: Protecting Mueller and his investigation is paramount,” Schumer informed reporters during a fiery press conference. “It would create a constitutional crisis if this were a prelude to ending or greatly limiting the Mueller investigation and I hope President Trump and those he listens to will refrain from that.”

Schumer was slammed with questions regarding the attorney general’s resignation just moments after Sessions was forced out of the top Justice Department spot. In his resignation letter, Sessions explained that he was submitting his resignation per Trump’s request.

Schumer, questioned if he had any requirements for a replacement attorney general nominee, affirmed that he wanted to look into the specifics of Sessions’ dismissal, after being told about the news while at the press conference.

“I’m not going to say much until I read what they said and why. I find the timing very suspect, number one,” Schumer said, before continuing to say that any attorney general “should not be able to interfere with the Mueller investigation in any way.”

Numerous House Democratic lawmakers have since renewed their calls to ensure protection for Mueller on Wednesday, a day after the party regained a majority in the House.

Democratic Representative Jerrold Nadler, who is set to become the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, offered up his suspicion on the timing of Sessions’ sudden dismissal.

“Why is the President making this change and who has authority over Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation? We will be holding people accountable,” he stated in a tweet.
