Democrats know that Biden’s classified documents scandal is a big deal.
Chuck Schumer lost his cool on CNN after being pressed on the Biden document scandal.
Video (partial transcript below):
From the video above:
“Don Lemon: According to one justice official, said that ‘the White House public statements earlier this week offered an incomplete narrative about the classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president reinforced the need for a special counsel. The misleading statements created the impression that Biden’s team had something to hide.’ That doesn’t sound that much different than the former president.
Chuck Schumer: Don, there’s now a special prosecutor. Let’s see what they have to say. We can have all this speculation and comment, let’s see what they have to say and let’s focus on doing things that help the American people.
Lemon: But sir, I have to say this, you seem much more measured about this than with the Trump documents because you called for transparency with the Trump documents. You wanted lawmakers to have access to the documents, seize the former president, his residence in Florida. Which it seems like you
Schumer: Bottom line is that I said that night, I said that night it is premature to comment on what should be done and I stick by that.
Lemon: For President Trump?
Schumer: Yes, for President Trump. That’s exactly right that’s what I said.
Poppy Harlow: So, you said the President has fully cooperated, there is no indication that the President has not cooperated and there is no indication that he and the White House have not. But there is a real question about transparency and what the American people deserve.
Schumer: The bottom line, the prosecutors will get to the bottom of this, and let’s let them do it, for God’s sake. I know you want to buzz around.
Harlow: Let me buzz for one minute and I promise we’ll get onto something else.
Lemon: Hold on, it is not just us buzzing around. You’re the Democrat head of the senate this is a really important issue, its not just buzzing around, its serious stuff.
Schumer: And if there were no special prosecutor you might have a different thing to say but there is and now we have the law enforcement people who have the power to get all the facts out doing it. I support both. I think we should have a special prosecutor on each. I don’t mind you asking these questions but my view is I’m not going to say anything. Let the special prosecutor do their job.”
Schumer doesn’t want to jump to any conclusions in this case but pushed nearly every conspiracy theory about Donald Trump without waiting for facts or evidence.
