Schumer: We Intend to Have More Votes on Emergency Declaration

During a press conference on Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that Senate Democrats intend to bring the resolution against President Trump’s national emergency declaration up for further votes. Schumer said, “[T]he president will first veto it. It goes to the House. It won’t have the 2/3ds. But I believe the law allows us to bring it up every six months, and certainly, we would intend to do that.” Schumer then responded to a question on what would be the point of bringing the resolution up again by stating, “The point of defending the checks and balances that the Founding Fathers put so exquisitely into our government? We’ve got to defend it ten times, even if they knock it down, in hopes of winning the eleventh.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Dem Assemblyman Goes Rogue, Uses Haunting Video of Holocaust Survivors To Tear Down Ilhan Omar

Whatever pull Rep. Ilhan Omar has over her own party, I’d certainly love to have it.

Schumer: Trump’s National Emergency Declaration Would Be a ‘Lawless Act,’ Gross ‘Abuse’ of Power

Thursday on the Senate floor, Democratic Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said if President Donald Trump declared a national emergency to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, it would be “a lawless act.” Schumer said, “If president Trump’s decides to go for was a disaster declaration he will be making a tremendous mistake. Declaring a national emergency would be a lawless act, a gross abuse of the power of the presidency, and a desperate attempt to distract from the fact that President Trump broke his core promise that to have Mexico pay for the wall. It would be another demonstration of President Trump’s naked contempt of the rule of the law and congressional authority.” He added, “Congress just debated this very issue. There was not support for the president’s position. Congressional intent on this issue is very clear. The president’s wall has been before Congress several times and has never guarded enough votes to even merit consideration. For the president to declare an emergency now would be unprecedented subversion of Congresses constitutional prerogative.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
