WATCH: Democratic Senator Schumer Once Favored the ‘Nuclear Option’

In 2013, Chuck Schumer blasted the alleged obstructionist tactics by Republicans to use the filibuster in the Senate.

Media Concerned about New Direction of State Department under Tillerson’s ‘Isolation’

The liberal media, used to the typical Washington, D.C. political establishment, is concerned about Trump’s Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson.

CNN Digs Up 2006 Interview of Trump Commenting, ‘I Like Nepotism’
