“I think the impeachment inquiry is absurd. The American people want us to do something that will make their lives better, not go off on these chases, witch hunts”
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) channeled his inner Trump this week, describing the impeachment inquiry of Joe Biden as a ‘witch hunt.’ Schumer also said that the effort was a waste of time and taxpayer money.
Is there a bigger hypocrite in the United States Senate than Schumer? Where were these concerns about time and money while Democrats relentlessly pursued the impeachment of Trump for four solid years?
The Daily Mail reports:
Chuck Schumer echos well-known Donald Trump talking point characterizing the Republicans’ impeachment of Biden as a WITCH HUNT as other Democrats slam the inquiry as illegitimate
Top Democrat Chuck Schumer is taking a line from Donald Trump’s messaging handbook by calling the new Republican-led impeachment inquiry into Biden a ‘witch hunt.’
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced an official impeachment inquiry Tuesday into President Biden over his alleged connections to his son Hunter’s multi-million dollar foreign business schemes.
The speaker said Republicans have amassed enough evidence that Joe has lied about his involvement in his family’s ‘culture of corruption’ and the American people need to know the truth.
Democrats were quick to condemn the action by Republicans, discounting it as a political move.
‘I think the impeachment inquiry is absurd. The American people want us to do something that will make their lives better, not go off on these chases, witch hunts,’ Schumer said Tuesday at the Democrats’ weekly press conference.
The well-known phrase – often capitalized on social media as WITCH HUNT – is used constantly by former President Trump.

As you may recall, Schumer had a very different attitude when Democrats were going after Trump.

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries is working off a similar playbook. The memo has clearly gone out. Expect Democrats and the media to double down on this message. Impeachments are suddenly bad now.
