This is unbelievable. Has Schumer fired these two yet? Has anyone asked Schumer about it? He’s the easiest person to find on The Hill –just show a microphone.
Matt Morgolis has a quote from a Schumer operative saying that the two targets of the investigation were “suspended with pay” in July, so at very least Schumer has been aware of the dirty tricks operation at the DSCC he heads for seven weeks and has disclosed nothing to the press. When discussing Schumer with The New Yorker’s Nick Lemann in the summer, I described the senator as the New Nixon,” referring to his five o’clock shadow and his use of the Congressional investigation to gather publicity for himself. Now Schumer has added a quasi-plumbers unit to his resume.
