Chuck Schumer: Americans Don’t Care About Investigations Into Bidens

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) claimed on Wednesday that “average Americans” were not particularly concerned with the ongoing investigations into members of President Joe Biden’s family.

Schumer joined hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to tout Biden’s signature Inflation Reduction Act on the one-year anniversary of the president signing it into law — and the conversation turned instead to the latest slate of indictments filed against former President Donald Trump and Republican investigations into the Biden family.


“We’re investing, they are investigating. All they seem to do is want to investigate this, that, and the other thing,” Schumer complained about his Republican counterparts. “That doesn’t help the American people. The contrast of yesterday, a former president being indicted for trying to deny an election, and this president today talking about investing in America, that’s going to sink in. It’s our job to make sure it sinks in.”

Scarborough, a former Republican, weighed in on the investigations currently being pursued by his ex-party. “I mean, their investigations are so stupid I am embarrassed for them. They are talking to arms dealers and people that illegally smuggle oil to the Communist Chinese Party. They talk about tapes and the FBI. Grassley gives up the game and says we don’t care if he’s guilty or not. I could go down the list,” he said.

“These investigations don’t matter to the average American people,” Schumer continued, arguing that it was all partisan and no substance. “This is the right-wing, the hard right-wing talking to each other. Let them keep talking to each other. We’re talking to the American people.”


Neither Schumer nor Scarborough made any mention of the fact that while Donald Trump was still in office, the Democrats had spent four years investigating everything Trump did or said — from potential emoluments clause violations to Ukraine phone calls; from allegations of Russian collusion to January 6th — and they had continued to investigate him in the years after he left office.
