The Senate Minority Leader expressed support for blocking any nominee until the Trump administration appoints a special prosecutor.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told State of the Union‘s Jake Tapper that he “would support” blocking President Trump’s nominee for FBI Director until the appointment of special prosecutor to look into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Tapper pointed out that Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the ranking member on the Senate Intelligence Committee, had made the call to block the nomination.
“I would support that move,” Schumer said.
However, he could not guarantee that Democrats would pursue that strategy, and they would have to discuss it as a caucus.
Schumer reasoned that the FBI Director nomination and the appointment of a special prosecutor were intertwined due to the nature of the Trump-Russia investigation.
