Schumer says Trump ‘should not be eligible to run for office ever again’

Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed a single article of impeachment against then-President Donald Trump, making him the only president ever to be impeached twice.

Though Trump departed from office on Wednesday, the Senate is still going ahead with a trial on the matter — and now, Democratic leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is coming clean about why.

“After what he has done, the consequences of which we were all witness to, Donald Trump should not be eligible to run for office ever again,” Schumer said Tuesday, according to the Washington Examiner.

“Let me be clear,” the long-time New York Democrat continued. “There will be an impeachment trial in the United States Senate. There will be a vote on convicting the president for high crimes and misdemeanors.”

“Spreading lies”

Schumer went on to promise that in the event a conviction is reached, “there will [then] be a vote on barring [Trump] from running again.”

“Once he leaves office, do we really expect him to change his tune and accept the truth?” the senator asked rhetorically, according to the Examiner. “Of course not.”

Schumer added of Trump: “He will continue spreading lies about the election and stoking the grievances of his most radical supporters, using the prospect of a presidential run to poison the public arena at a time when we must get so much done.”

“They were provoked”

While Sen. Schumer has been vocal about accusing the now-former president of having fomented the riot that took place on Capitol Hill earlier this month, he wasn’t the only one to do so.

Similar claims have been made by even several Republicans, including Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, who was condemned by her state GOP for voting to impeach Trump earlier this month.

Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner reports that Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has complained that the rioters were “fed lies.”

“They were provoked by the president and other powerful people,” McConnell charged, according to the Examiner. “And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government which they did not like.”

Although McConnell has been harshly critical of former President Trump, he has not yet formally indicated how he will vote in the upcoming trial, according to reports.

    1. These bastards who know nothing about the constitution have a lot of nerve, 3 fourths of the Senate should be impeached. IF YOU DONT KNOW OR UNDERSTAND THE CONSTITUTION YOU HAVE KNOW RIGHT HAVING A SEAT IN THE SENATE OR HOUSE.

      1. True they are nothing but hateful people! I don’t believe more people cannot see they are just power hungry! They would fight if they were set up and lied on! Nancy is in charge of the security so you cannot say she didn’t know anything about the set up! The capital police new about the rally and cut the forces down . Then they claimed they didn’t know about the rally! Then after they got caught they came cleaned! They also finally said that BLM and Antifa was there.

    2. I believe that there were several questionable happenings during the election . Trumps Speech did not inflame me to go do any violence. Those rioters already had their plans set long before Trumps speech.

    3. They are afraid of PRESIDENT Trump. He is a better man than all of them. Honest, Hard Working and a Promise
      God Bless Him!

  1. Here we go again, the Dems talking and acting like communists! I guess this is ok, since China has paid them off or at least that is what most people are saying.

    I also hear a lot of discussion on the new Patriot Party, not just the 75 million that voted for Trump, but the numbers for Trump are rapidly rising and appears that the Dems may not be in charge for more than 2 years!
    Americans are fed up the the Dems and want them out ASAP!

    1. YES!! Anyone with half a brain should be able to see this….the Dems are corrupt and we need to establish a new government excluding those worshipping Satan, as most of them do. This is a nation under the One True God…not Beelzebub!

  3. Why can’t we impeach all of these politicians who spend these exorbitant amounts of money in these frivolous investigations that lead to NOTHING!!! It’s a waste of taxpayers money.

    1. Agree 1000 percent. There has to be a way to stop all this revenge on Trump. That’s the only real reason for any of this! We don’t deserve this and neither does he! They are power mad, and now the stupid Rinos are joining in!! Just wait till 2022 guys. We will make sure every Rino is out of a job! And lots more democrats too!

    2. Let’s impeach them all. Republicans and Democrats and go back to the originalist make up of the Legislative Branch. All Congressman and Senators are appointed by their State Legislatures and they receive a stipend for travel and living expenses. We can board them in a government building (it’s not like we don’t have plenty sitting empty). They are only in DC for 6 weeks out of the year. No lobby money and they all have regular jobs.

    3. That is what I say—How do we go about taking the right from them to use our monies for their witch-hunts !????? I think they already owe us for the first time they did so without any proof and here we go again!!

  4. Schumer and Pelosi have to go, they have been in office to long. They think they can just make laws by themselves, they do not have to obey the law them self . These two have been in office to long. Some of the things Pelosi has done should put her in the breaking the law area. In fact she should be impeached.

  5. People are deluding themselves for not believing that Donald Trump’s words prior to the attempted insurrection on January 6th were inflammatory, resulting in the attempted takeover of the Capitol Building, resulting in 6 deaths. I think Senator McConnell’s right in pursuing an impeachment and Senate trial.

    1. Kenneth,
      I heard portions of Trumps speech an read the entire transcript. In the first 25% of the speech, he requested his followers to go peacefully to the Capitol. As you have learned, there was plenty of Antifa interacting with the Trumpsters. They were entering the Capitol building before Trump was even halfway finished with his speech.

      1. Thanks Janet for setting Kenneth strait~~~ It has been proven that the timeline was all wrong for Trump to be blamed for that mess~~~

    2. The fact that the siege started 1 hour before the Trump speech ended and that it was well planed in advance points to the Dems setting the whole thing up! Pelosi and Schumer will pay in the end for all this hatred!

  6. If they think impeaching Trump will do them any good, it will do as much good as the the first time they tried and failed for conviction. Why aren’t they concerned about Obama giving all those Billions of $$$$$ to Iran so they could build Atomic bombs? why not Obama for giving all those guns and money to the Cartels? Why not Waters and the others for telling the liberals, BLM, and co-horts to attack and kill all the conservatives they could.? And the list goes on and on and on with the liberals haters.

  7. I’m so done with the so called GOP. I want too make a new party right now My party’s name is Patriots Party For All Americans! This is my new party please join give up on the so called GOP they didn’t help us when they stole the election they didn’t help President Trump when he needed it most alls they have really done is helped the other side win and now he’s out of office they are going to impeach him again when the people who charge the US capital had planned it out well before Trump ever gave his speech so how in the hell could he be responsible for that and his so called first impeachment was a lie they knew he wasn’t guilty but they lied about that for 6 years now enough is enough time to take action time to leave there Party time to make a new US that includes all of us please join!!!

  8. asa ww2phvet joe is, i feel the most nonintelligent person to hold so important position in the world. further, he is from a family that is in financial trouble—i do not believe him, his brother is in legal problems, so is his son and his grand daughter also…………

  9. Let’s get the taxpayers money back from the dnc and note piglosi, chuckie, nadler, schitty, chinaeric, and comey it’s from them.

  10. Everyone of you know you are lying about Trump. Read his speech. He did not incite violence. Why are ya’ll trying to destroy the man.You have impeached him twice by lies and if you bar him from running again, I hope God takes care of all of you soon!

  11. Lest we forget what Schumer said on the Supreme Court steps in March of 2020. “I want to tell you, Gorsuch; I want to tell you Kavanaugh: You have released a whirlwind and you will pay the price.” Impeach you.

  12. We must start at the top of the food chain, which means those in charge now!
    The Democrats have lost their freaking minds and liberal media, and social media along with the Hollywood Elites are all ignorant! The current WH occupant is nothing but a puppet for the extreme left radicals and I am sure they have plans that we know nothing about!

  13. Excuse the stupid question but isn’t it up to US, American Citizens to choose who will or will not serve as our president! That being the case what the heck does Schumer have that gives him the idea he should control who can and cannot run for public office!! Get over yourself. They are so afraid of Trump gets to the bottom of corruption and there are a lot of guilty people shaking in their boots. I say. Let’s impeach Schumer & Pelosi!

  14. This has always been a part of the Liberal playbook, guilty and sentenced before innocent.
    Schumer and O’Connell can both go, but not before they eat my shorts.

  15. President Trump should never have been impeached to begin with! The only thing that he is guilty of is trying to rid the country of all of the swamp creatures and cleaning up corruption in Washington. We need Term Limits to finish what Trump started and then National Voter ID so our elections are fair and fraud-free. Since we are impeaching, let’s put Pelosi,Schumer,Schiff,Waters,Nadler,and a number of RINOs on the list!
    May God bless Donald Trump and his family. He was a great President and put Americans first always.

  16. The Constitution requires the House investigate the charge then vote to impeach or not… In this instance, Pelosi went from charge to vote and skipped the investigation… UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!

  17. They are STILL so terrified of Trump they want to fix it that he can’t run again. When are the trials of Waters, Harris, Biden and Schumer, et al, for incitement of violence and insurrection going to start? I have seen every one of them on TV committing exactly what they are accusing Trump to have done.

  18. Chucky is a disgusting individual. He goes against anything that’s good for the United States,& it’s citizens.
    I don’t understand how the likes of him & pelosi stay in office!😡😡😡

  19. What more is needed to show the Democrat coup. The Democrat Party should be disbanded for TREASON against a sitting president.

  20. Thanks, McConnell. I am now an ex-Republican. Your dislike for Trump has been obvious from the start, but I guess you held your nose for four years. Until you leave the Party, I won’t vote.

  21. Nancy and Summer were crawling over each other in the capital protest! She left her tablet out on purpose! It was rigged just like the election! Pin the tail on the donkey!!! Donkies!!! What a bunch of losers.

  22. Piglosi and Schumer should not be eligible to hold a seat in our congress or senate, due to un American activity, subverting our constitution, sedition and other high crimes and misdemeanors! They should be removed!

  23. wow some of these idiots who claim that they know everything about our constitution does not know anything and should not be a senator if they don t understand our law and how the constitution work and hope they take some time and read it so they can better understand it

  24. the only way it is fair to say that WE lie when WE say that the election was not correctly done, is to actually look at all the evidence, depose all the people who freely and under penalty signed affidavits. Until someone has the courage to look at the evidence and depose the people who freely signed the affidavits under penalty of perjury, I do not want to hear that WE the people, especially President Trump cannot say WE WON by a landslide. I continue not only to say that but to say the LORD’s Will be done and has been done. America is either about to see the greatest miracle since Israel was reborn or is about to usher in the end. Look up for your redemption draws nigh and IF you do not understand that find a born again Christian and speak to them, become a whosoever in the kingdom of our LORD and Savior, HE stands and knocks at the door of your heart, open and be blessed.
