After his government shutdown fiasco over DACA that had his own party and even DACA recipients lambast him, Chuck Schumer has made yet another threat to President Trump, this time warning of “severe consequences” if Mueller’s witch hunt is shut down.
Despite the fact Special Counsel Mueller has yet to provide a shred of evidence that Trump-Russia collusion existed, it appears Democrats are still not able to let go of their fantasy that after over a year this will somehow change.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Saturday warned of “severe consequences” if President Trump moves to shut down the special counsel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Schumer cited comments by Trump’s personal attorney John Dowd on Saturday asking the deputy attorney general to “bring an end” to the “fraudulent” investigation he claimed was constructed to undermine the president.
“The president, the administration, and his legal team must not take any steps to curtail, interfere with, or end the special counsel’s investigation or there will be severe consequences from both Democrats and Republicans,” Schumer said in a statement.
Dowd called on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to follow the “courageous example” of the FBI’s internal watchdog that recommended former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe be fired. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced McCabe’s firing on Friday.
The Trump attorney said in a statement obtained by The Hill that Rosenstein should “bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss [former FBI Director] James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier.”
