Top democrat Chuck Schumer that democrats will not vote for new FBI director. They are obviously still whining about Trump's election victory over the poorly ran campaign of their beloved democrat Hillary Clinton.
“The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate said on Sunday that Democrats would consider refusing to vote on a new FBI director until a special prosecutor is named to investigate President Donald Trump’s potential ties to Russia.
Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said his caucus has not yet made a decision on whether to withhold their votes, but added that the issue is being looked at as a way to ensure there is a thorough investigation of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election”.
The democrats don't want to vote on the new director of the FBI. The top democrat mentioned that they may refuse to vote because they want a prosecutor to named to oversee the ties between Trump and Russia. This is not a confirmed “solution” because they are not yet sure how they want to “solve the problem” of the 2016 election. They forget that there is no problem. A winner was elected and that guy is now called PRESIDENT TRUMP.

"To have that special prosecutor, people would breathe a sigh of relief because then there would be a real independent person overlooking the FBI director," Schumer told CNN's "State of the Union" program.
The reasoning behind the special prosecutor is that this person will be independent and free of manipulation from all parties. At least that is the theory, but I'm not sure if theories involve bribes and secret handshakes. Not only is this person free of manipulation, but he will keep accountable every party/person that elects him. At least, that's the thinking behind it.
“Trump sparked a political firestorm when he abruptly fired James Comey, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation last week. The FBI has been investigating alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election and possible ties between Moscow and the Trump campaign.
Russia has denied the claims and the White House says there was no collusion.”
This was a major red flag to the skeptics. This looks bad because the FBI was investigating the possible ties between Trump and Russia. This is evidence that the left is still upset that Hillary Clinton lost. The only reason she lost is because she was not a viable candidate for the position. The majority of the people did not want her to rule the country.
“If the Senate vote on an FBI director were to break down along strict party lines, Democrats would not have the votes to block a nominee.”.
The best thing about this whole election is Trump holds the majority for at least the next two years. What the democrats say or do is pointless because they do not hold the majority. Out of the 100 members of the senate, 52 are republican. That is just enough to vote for the new FBI director and I think the Veep is able to throw the hammer in a tie-breaker vote if needed.
“The key is getting some of our Republican colleagues to join us," Schumer said.”
Schumer believes that he can convince some of the Republicans to join the protest. The only way he can do that is if a few people go against their party or get bribed.
This is why our government is messed up. The minority thinks they can just change people's opinions to support what they want. They fail to realize that they are the minority in this situation and there's little they can do. If they want to make a bigger difference, then have better politics and pull more voters towards you with things that make sense and don't appear as a snowflake.
