Trump is “hostage-taking once again” by threatening to not work with Congress “if there are investigations,” Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) told Hill.TV on Thursday.
"He's hostage-taking once again, holding the American people hostage,” Schumer said in an exclusive interview with Hill.TV. "It's not just the right of Congress to look into these things, it's the obligation. The Founding Fathers said it.”
His remarks were in response to tweets earlier in the day from Trump, who lashed out at Democrats like House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff launching investigations into the administration.
