He was talking about Trump Jr email and proceeded to state, like so many people are asking, where are the Democrats. So, THAT made it into media.

3. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer

 

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said on Tuesday that a chain of email correspondence released by Trump Jr. earlier in the day mark “the end of the idea pushed by the administration and the president that there is absolutely no evidence of intent to coordinate or collude.”

During a press conference on Tuesday, Schumer called on Trump Jr. “and other campaign associates to turn over any and all documents, and electronic communications that investigators ask for.” He added, “we need public testimony under oath of Donald Trump Jr. who has changed his story repeatedly.”

Appreciate the effort, and I'm glad to have a cut and paste-able resource available when pushing back against the "Dems are silent" Zombie lie

55. I'm not sure what to make of his statement. It seems rather perfunctory...

... but maybe he was distracted with other things. He's an awfully busy man, you know. I'm sure he's got a LOT of other things on his mind that are much more important. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and see if he has more to say about this, now that additional information is being revealed.

...that he never saw a camera that he couldn't resist. But once he went to Washington he concentrated on doing his job for the people of Connecticut.

Still, I see none demanding that the Democrats speak out come on your thread to cheer the Democrats speaking out.

Odd that.

43. Interesting that Dems are being quite disciplined in going after the "Trump Administration", and not

yet rounding on the Republicans, which I think is the right strategy. There will be plenty of time for that.

I'm still waiting for certain DUers to let us know what these statements by Democrats should "really" look like, by the way. Because there are a lot of Dems speaking out, contrary to what you may have heard.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), who chaired the Democratic National Committee during much of last year’s campaign cycle, proposed an amendment targeting Kushner during a House Appropriations Committee markup session Thursday. It was voted down, 22-30, along party lines.

48. A thread was even started to specifically bash this woman not doing enough, while speaking out.

 

Now, are they going to bash her for taking her voice a step further to try and do something?

And still people stay quiet after bashing Dems, not good enough.

49. I'm still waiting for a believable scenario as to what Dems should say and do. Foam at the mouth?

Fall on the floor? Flail their arms and legs? Turn red in the face and scream?

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was just about destroyed by the same forces that brought down Hillary Clinton, and instead of having her back then and especially now, some on our (?) side want to grind her further into the dirt.

Oh yes, she's another Democratic woman who has risen through the ranks by hard work on our behalf. I guess we just can't be having with uppity women.

68. House Democrats want to know why a major Russian money-laundering case was abruptly settled

 

Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday asking why the Department of Justice settled a major money-laundering case involving a real-estate company owned by the son of a powerful Russian government official whose lawyer met with Donald Trump Jr. last year.

Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, on Tuesday tweeted an email chain from June 2016 in which he entertained accepting damaging information from a "Russian government attorney" about Hillary Clinton as part of the Kremlin's support for his father's campaign.
