Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer’s vow, hours after Trump was acquitted last week, to impeach again in three months if the president commits more “crimes”.
New York senator Chuck Schumer came out of the gates Monday with a letter to 74 inspector generals asking for “immediate action to investigate any and all instances of retaliation” against whistleblowers, the Hill reported
It cited Trump’s “retaliation” against Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman following the National Security Council staffer’s testimony in Trump’s impeachment trial. Vindman and his twin brother, Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, were escorted from the White House Friday. They are returning to the Pentagon after their White House service.
Schumer was responding to a reporters question Wednesday when he insisted there was “conclusive” evidence against the president, USA Features Media reported.
“And if the president does it in three months, they should impeach him again,” he said.
The minority leader was asked if the Senate was ready to “put impeachment to bed.”
“Look, this idea, we have too many impeachments, too few impeachments; the standard should not be how many or what’s politically right or wrong,” Schumer replied.
