Harry Reid has passed the torch to Chuck Schumer. The New York Democrat is using his platform as Senate Minority Leader to trash Donald Trump. But, Schumer may have taken it too far by what some are considering a threat to Donald Trump.
Schumer took exception to Trump’s tweet below regarding an upcoming Intelligence briefing regarding Obama’s claim of Russian hacking during the election.
The "Intelligence" briefing on so-called "Russian hacking" was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!

Senator Schumer said, “He’s being really dumb to do this. You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday to get back at you.” Some are seeing that as a dog whistle for the Intelligence community to go after the President-elect.
The last president to challenge the CIA was John Kennedy. Kennedy ended up with a bullet in his head and over 50 years later his assassination remains unsolved by the Intelligence agency he challenged.
Schumer also rose to the floor of the Senate to challenge Trump and chide Republicans for not going along with Obama’s conspiracy theories about Russian hacking. The video below shows that while Schumer has a different style than Harry Reid, the policy and direction in which he will lead will remain the same.
The Democrats call on bipartisanship now that they aren’t in power. How cute of them. He’s like the bully who cries for for everyone to get along after kicking you in the shin.
Donald Trump was unlike any other major party presidential nominee and he will be unlike any other President. Schumer and his colleagues will have to get used to that.
