Senator Chuck Grassley took to the floor of the Senate on Thursday to call out Chuck Schumer for lying about the President. According to Chuck Schumer, former FBI Director James Comey not only told Senator Grassley that the President Trump was not under investigation, but Comey also told Senator Schumer.
Senator Grassley pointed out that even after Comey told Schumer there was no investigation, Schumer still lied to the press and claimed the President was being investigated. In fact, Schumer said the nomination of Neil Gorsuch needed to be withheld because of the FBI investigation. But Schumer already knew there was no investigation.
Other Democrats knew as well. Grassley said Comey told the “Gang of Eight”, which includes the top leaders of both houses of congress, from both parties.
