By The Right Scoop


Chuck Schumer defended Eric Holder this morning saying he hasn’t seen a single accusation that prevents Holder from doing his job. When asked about Holder lying to Congress, Schumer was adamant that Holder didn’t commit perjury and said there’s not a scintilla of evidence to suggest he did, pointing out that there never has been any prosecution or attempted prosecution of any journalist.

Watch:

So I guess in Tom Brokaw’s eyes, Chuck Schumer is a hypocrite.

    Should we really be surprised by this? Even if Holder were caught on video committing murder, Sen. Schumer would still sit there with a straight face and try to convince us that that wasn’t him on the tape.

    • doofuschmartz

      Or that it was a justifiable homicide? Like Brian Terry’s? RIGHT!!!

  • http://cfp4us.org/ AmericanborninCanada

    I guess with chuck you, like slick willie, it depends on what the meaning of the word is, is.  Chuckie- another posterboy for term limits.

    • DarrellGriffin

      I am very surprised none of the conservative outlets picked up on what Van Holland said, and apparently is getting a pass for saying.

  • LibLoather

    Schumer is doing his best goose-stepping today.

  • strangernfiction

    Rubio’s immigration pal defending the indefensible.

  • notebene

    Can you just imagine what we would discover if we were allowed to spy on Chuck Schumer’s email, phone, and private conversations?  Wonder if the end would still justify the means, if we did that to him.  He wouldn’t stand for it…liberals ooze hypocrisy!

    • DarrellGriffin

      Remember, this shining beacon of integrity was also one of the Senators siccing the IRS on conservatives.

  • 335blues

    What a freaking, disgusting pig this jerk schumer is. He will lie anytime, anywhere, to anybody to further his marxist ideology. Taqiyya to all the non-believers until they are destroyed.

  • shelty056

    lairs stick together , and Schumer is a ass kisser…

    • https://sites.google.com/site/warpminesblog/ warpmine

      shelty056 Probably why his breath smells of Obama/Holder exrement.

      • kong1967

        warpmine shelty056 DOH !!!

    • doofuschmartz

      Shelty, I hate to split hairs on a matter, BUTT, Schumer is not just an a** kisser, he is an A**, In fact, they could remove the donkey head on the Democrat icon and, very appropriately, replace it with Schmucky’s…JMHO

      • kong1967

        doofuschmartz Oh, and I thought that was the general photo of all Democrats.  They all look the same to me.

  • DarrellGriffin

    From Fox News Sunday:
    Quoting Congressman Van Holland here from this morning:
    “And it’s often the practice in cases where you have investigations that you target somebody for the purpose of gathering information with never having any intention of prosecuting them.”
    “That does not mean it’s not true as a legal matter to allege exactly what they alleged in this affidavit.”
    So basically, they can make up stuff about people, to gather any information they want, so long as they choose not to prosecute ? Whatever happened to the Fourth Amendment ?

    • https://sites.google.com/site/warpminesblog/ warpmine

      DarrellGriffin Errr, the fourth Amendment was set a blaze like the rest of the Constitution was.

      • DarrellGriffin

        If the abuses of the Obama Administration are allowed to become precedent, and the instruments of government who abused their positions go unpunished, then we live under a Oligarchy. There is no more Republic.

    • kong1967

      DarrellGriffin  I think the reason is so they can intimidate the target or besmirch them.

    • badbadlibs

      DarrellGriffin I heard him speak today, he might as well have said, “just because holder lied, it doesn’t mean he lied”. Those people who put men like van helland in power should be arrested for stupidity.

  • NYGino

    He might as well have said;  “Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes and ears?”

  • YoJoe

    If Schumer believes that – 
    THEN – HE JUST LIED ON NATIONAL TV!
    Are all these Liberals Crazy? – (Stupid question)

  • Laurel A

    That folks is what circling the wagons looks like.

    • kong1967

      Laurel A  Everyone that tries using this same stupid claim is only hurting their own credibility.  Seems pretty clear cut to me.

      • Laurel A

        kong1967 Laurel A Democrat sheeple will vote this tool in again and again. They don’t care about credibility, right or wrong, or intelligence.

        • kong1967

          Laurel A  Lol, they don’t care about credibility or intelligence because they can’t find anyone with any.

        • 57thunderbird

          kong1967 Laurel A Because apparently his constituents don’t possess either attribute either.

  • marstix

    Schumer needs to go…who knows how many back room deals have his name on them.  He is hardly a person that this country can trust.  Just listen to him.  He himself is a liar!  Everyone in Washington today except for a few, must go.  It is a corrupt town with a corrupt government.

    • kong1967

      marstix  You can jumble your username to spell Marxist.  Was that intentional or does it mean something else?

    Ole Chuck U Schumer rears his ugly head and the bilge just pours out of his mouth as usual.Hey Chuck.This is a serious matter and we will not let it go!Get it!Got it!Good!

  • NYGino

    Schumer says that after Fast and Furious Holder continued doing his job well.  What job is that Chuck, protecting the impostor at all costs?

    • kong1967

      NYGino …and illegally using the highest law office in the land to target political enemies?  I guess we can understand why Schumer said he did his job well.

  • doofuschmartz

    Yeah, and there isn’t a scintilla of evidence that Schmucky Choomer has a functioning brain in that big old head of his either. After all we can’t see it, nothing he has said or done is a manifestation of living brain cells, add to that the total absence of conscience and morality and you have overwhelming empirical evidence of TOTAL BRAIN DEATH or brain rot based on the stench of fetid decomposition everytime he opens his rotten mouth….Yo, New York can’t y’all get someone with brain activity in any of your elected offices…?

  • taurnil

    Its amazing how willing people like this guy eye their sword and think they can fall on it while retaining some kind of integrity. How many times does Holder’s transcripts to Congress have to be cited showing Holder is nothing but a two faced lair?

    Sorry I have forgotten the cardinal rule when dealing with these kind of people which is;
    If you want to piss off a liberal tell them the truth.

  • kong1967

    Now they are splitting hairs.  “It depends on what the definition of is is”.
    They know darn good and well that Holder said that he had never heard of it and feels it would be a very bad idea to do such a thing.  He said somewhere in there that he didn’t prosecute Rosen, but he most certainly did mislead Congress and told them he had nothing to do with it. 
    Holder is going to slide by diverting from the obvious.  These people are the biggest scumbag politicians I have ever seen.  They think we are so stupid that we will believe it.
    When pigs fly, Schumer.

    • RocklinConservative

      It’s not us they are trying to deceive.  It’s the LIV that won’t read or listen to anything past a headline (or an inappropriately named bill for that matter).

      • kong1967

        RocklinConservative I had to think for a bit, but I’m assuming that LIV is for “low information voter”?  Fits the context, and I agree.

  • 1tootall

    I know this: if Cheney or Reagan’s AG were in holder’s shoes schumer would be all over it. You would not hear the end of it. That’s how you know the law has nothing to do with it as far as schumer is concerned. He should listen to the 5 areas of indictment judge Jeanine has listed. It might stimulate chucky to a deeper thought process.

    • doofuschmartz

      Sorry 1Toot, I question Schmuck-u’s ability to be stimulated to deeper thought. I think it’s probably due to lack of functioning brain matter. He probably had one to many collisions chasing ambulances before he became a Senator.

      • 1tootall

        Well said. Point well taken.

  • snowshooze

    We all saw Holder lie. What is there to investigate? 
      I believe my eyes and ears. Time to lock him up.

  • RocklinConservative

    Hey Chuck … he was never going to try and press charges.  He just wanted to be able to have access to his phone and emails so he could “spy” on the press.  Which is also why he wanted it suppressed.  If you recall, he go this subpeona to be hidden indefinitely so Rosen would never know.  How long do you think they would have kept listening in on his calls had he never found out.
    BTW … isn’t this the exact opposite of what Murdock’s group in the UK was busted for?

  • brazen_infidel

    I haven’t watched this, but I don’t suppose Brokaw tried holding Schumer’s feet to the fire about his role in the IRS scandal, did he?

  • lawngreen

    I thought a scintilla was a small fur-bearing animal.
    I haven’t seen a scintilla of evidence that we ever went to the moon. I haven’t seen a scintilla of evidence that the earth is round. Hilly, maybe, especially in Colorado, but round? Give me a break…. Rock ‘em shumer, holder is as innocent as Jack the Ripper – no, no, wait, innocent as Jack the Beanstalker … well you know what I mean. Hey, what does a liberal ar about accuracy, anyway?

  • steveangll77

    Potential mean actual.  Right.
    Chuckie when you have to change the words to support your argument you lost the argument.

    Out of the mouth of another snake from the snake pit called Washington, D.C.  Hey, Schumer, is your man, Zero a member of the Muslim Brotherhood?  Where’s his bc, you fraud?  I hope he is executed for treason someday, with you.

  • Matt2Matt

    Communists lie, it’s what they do…

  • famouswolf

    Heh, more scandals in one ‘presidency’ than in the rest of our history combined and these fools go right along with it. I’ve not ever heard of such lemming behavior before, not even from lemmings.
    I reckon prezzy oblasphemy is good at two things: campaigning and blackmail. The second is the only reasonable explanation for the fact that he isn’t rotting on a flagpole in the Mall as a warning to all the rest of the traitors. Guys like Schumer ought to be right next to him. I’m REALLY running out of patience.
    This is all so freaking unnecessary.

  • XL0GIC1013

    This is coming from someone who had a score of 1600 on his SAT years ago. Holder lied to the judge that Rosen was dangerous, hence he got the subpoena on false pretenses. He then says much later that he never intended to charge Rosen of a crime. That is perjury when he wasn’t answering truthfully in front of Congress. Shumer has got to be kidding himself!
    While I am still at it, he should apologize to regular Americans starting with the question of Tea Parties and tax exemptions. That got someone in the IRS to follow his lead that started the whole chain of events that the IRS is in that the scandal still exists. I don’t want a special prosecutor. I want answers and reassurance that the IRS don’t get their hands on my health records period.

    • publius69

      XL0GIC1013 in my opinion, holder is at least as smart as barry…and that isn’t a complement.  they succeeded the new fashioned way: having the right skin color

  • The Sentinel

    Chuck Schumer is a crooked, lying turd. No one should listen to this liar.

    • clevonlittle

      The Sentinel change ” is ” to ” was ” and you have written his obituary.

        And that would be a “W” for the good guys.
        Clever. :)

  • volsense

    Lying to a liberal is what they want it to be, not what the facts dictate.  Curious why it took three (3) judges to get it done. Chuckie has been a habitual liar all of his life.  Why would any sane person take his or Holder’s word on anything?  When Rubio joined Chuckie, Durbin, Grahamnesty and McCain on the Gang of 8, he committed political suicide.  Rubio may go down in history as the youngest RINO to go down in flames.

  • http://www.inhisdreams.com Pinkflowers

    Schumer can’t even recognize the truth since he lies so much.  Yes, he’s the perfect liberal.
    The judge shopping is a huge signal.  Listening to his (Holder’s) testimony is a smoking gun..  Yes, the truth matters and it’s time to pay the consequences.

  • K-Bob

    Schumer would have said the same thing about John Wilkes Booth.

  • njmom

    It’s hard to see the truth when everything you do and say is a lie or obfuscation.

    • http://n/a seenbetterdaze

      njmom    Wasn’t Schumie one of the DimmicRats who sent letters telling the IRS to go after the Tea Partys and other Conservative groups?

  • http://n/a seenbetterdaze

    Chuckie and his dimmi-minions don’t recognize their own LIES as perjury.   Only when the person being questioned is not one of them do they call it LIES or Perjury!   Such Hypocrites and AntiAmericans have never before had so much power over Americans as these Evil Bstds.   Too bad Congress will not Impeach the whole lot of them….but if the One were to be impeached we all KNOW what would happen in the Big Cities…remember Watts?   Congress KNOWS this and that’s why the schumies, holders, jarretts, and the IRS Obots  are so Bold and Arrogant.

  • DHardy

    Schumer is an moron…

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Chuckie, take off your blinders and see what’s going on around you!!!!  Oh, never mind, I know you’re not interested in the truth and/or trying to clean-up obama’s corrupt administration.  Keep denying everything, Chuckie, like we expected you to do.

    • http://n/a seenbetterdaze

  • publius69

    nope…no evidence whatsoever…just his live testimony proving he lied…nothing to see here, move on.

  • Keyes

    There’s not a scintilla of evidence that Chuckie has a functioning brain.

  • Layne S

    Kind of like President Obama not adding one dime to the deficit…. He added a trillion to the deficit.
    Not a scintilla, but a boatload of evidence.

    • http://n/a seenbetterdaze

      Layne S   NOT merely ONE Trillion dollars to the Deficit….Bush left us 4 TRILLION DEBT…OBAMA with his Porkulus/Stimulus ADDED 13 TRILLION DOLLARS to the 4 Trillion from Bush’s 2 WARS against IRAQ/Afghanistan….That’s right, 13 TRILLION more to the DEBT.   Just the Interest on the Debt Payment is more than our GDP.

  • http://www.navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    Schumer is  jerk. You know why people hate politicians so much? Because of jerks like Schumer. This guy couldn’t be honest for one second if his life depended on it. To think he would rather try and clear a criminal like Holder rather than do what’s right and just try to get this guy out of office, just shows you what a partisan hack this guy really is. The law means nothing when you have a political point to make, which is why people like Schumer are so loathsome.

  • doofuschmartz

    I’m wondering when Schmucky is gonna come outta the closet…him and his boyz…one of whom is “Little Dick” Durbin, and their roommates with whom they share that cozy little bungalow in Washington D.C….and now that his boy toy, Anthony and his Weiner have parted ways for good, Schmucky will probably spend more time than ever in D.C….especially if “the Weiner” becomes NYC mayor…

  • 1RandiStarr

    Schumer is the tool who cleans the finger prints off the smoking gun!

  • Godisright

    I really don’t have anything to say to the choir today concerning this jerk.

  • imatellau

    the sky is green and water is dry and holder didn’t lie. pathetic.

  • ProgressivesrMaggots

    This moron is a fine example why you can only serve 8 years total in any elected office and that means combined from local, state and federal. These morons have to go. They are the ones who are snafuing things up and then lying to us.

  • bobomack

    What kind of blind, stupid ass is Schumer to sit there and say there is no evidence of perjury when Holder testified on targeting the media. Even when the evidence is right in front of their faces, they deny. I’ll tell you this, straight up, anyone who was fool enough to vote Obama and his shady bunch back for a second term is either uneducated and fear loosing your gravy train ride or just plain Un-American. If I’ve offended someone by telling it straight, Don’t let it bother you, you’re probably on the sideline hoping someone else will change things. You have to stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything!!

  • jc1522122

    Just so sick and tired of the lies upon lies. Sitting here watching “The Shooter” Should be used as a training film on what to do with bad …

  • PapaLouie

    It makes sense that a liar would defend a liar. Chuck Schumer conveniently leaves out the word “potential” and just says prosecution. Holder said he had never been involved in the “potential prosecution” of a journalist. Signing an affidavit to get a search warrant that names a journalist as a co-conspirator in a crime means you are seriously considering prosecuting. If prosecution was never a possibility, then Holder violated the journalist’s civil rights by lying to the judge to get the search warrant.

  • jhngalt9

    And there we have the pathological liar Marco Rubio is teaming up with on immigration.

  • Dr. Strangelove

    Off camera Schumer reportedly said, “Why Holder’s a Democrat, you know we are incapable if lying.”

  • mikeinidaho

    Good old Chuck the Shmuck Schumer! One lying dirtbag coming to the defense of another lying dirtbag.
    A pox on all of DC.

  • PaulLeslie

    Schumer is a corrupt lying subversive and the democrats of NY that keep electing this clown are participating in the destruction of America.

  • jc1522122

    Was there another Hearing that I am not aware of where Holder didn’t lie. I must have missed it, Funny all the videos on youtub he is lying like a rug. I personally think all of this should serve us all as a wake up call and lets start being Americas First above and before anything else. And our Frist Pyorty as Americas should be to through eveyone of these lyers out of office. And from this day forth demand Honesty from all our elected Officals. The lies and deception that has come forth in the last few weeks is unbelievable.

  • clubgitmo

    Probably the most pompous, arrogant, stuck up person in politics and I did not even listen to the video.
