Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuch Schumer of Pennsylvania was picked up while on vacation on Long Island this morning by the US Marshals. Schumer was taken in on a warrant issued by a federal Judge for tax evasion while his wife, Leanne, and his three kids, aged 19, 11 and 5, stood nearby hugging each other and crying.
According to official records, Schumer made more than $30 million last year in “consulting fees” from wind farms, solar developers and other tree-hugging scams that he decided not to include on his taxes. He tried to call them “campaign contributions,” but the IRS noted that the checks were deposited into Schumer’s personal bank account in Caledonia, which won’t respond to requests for audit from the United States.
Schumer’s office hasn’t made a statement, but House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says that the charges are false and that this is a “witch hunt” by the Trump administration to deflect attention from the real issue facing the American people: Russian interference into the 2016 election.
They sound like broken records, don’t they? That’s how the left works, though. Keep repeating something enough times and it will come true. We’ll keep you updated on this developing story.
