Gingrich: ‘Schumer’s plan to keep Obama appointees in power’

Gingrich: ‘Schumer's plan to keep Obama appointees in power’Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democrats continue to trash and ignore President Trump by slowing down Senate confirmation of his Cabinet appointments among other plans and programs that Trump is working on.

Based on comments on Schumer’s Facebook page, he and other Democrats are doing everything possible to bring down the Trump administration by accusing Trump and the Cabinet members of wrong doing when Schumer and the Democrats have done the same thing in the past, such as meeting with Russian officials.

Former House Majority leader Newt Gingrich had this to say:

Their underlying goal is to allow remaining Obama-appointed bureaucrats to do as much damage to the Trump administration as they can before leaving.

CNN reported last week that “Trump is noticeably behind the last three presidents when it comes to securing the confirmation of his Cabinet and other top appointments that require Senate approval.”

The Senate confirmed Governor Rick Perry on Thursday to lead the U.S. Department of Energy, leaving only former Governor Sonny Perdue and Alexander Acosta awaiting confirmation to lead the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Labor respectively.

But Schumer is only stalling top cabinet picks to further block the appointments of nearly 2,000 other political vacancies within the administration. CNN said as of February 23, Trump had 1,987 vacancies throughout his administration.

Many of these positions are empty. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said yesterday that much has happened at the Department of Justice in the three weeks he’s been in office, and he wished more of his staff had been confirmed by now. To be clear: Senate Democrats are keeping the Department of Justice from functioning at full capacity.

But other seats are currently filled by Obama appointees quietly working behind the scenes to sabotage Trump’s efforts by continuing their previous leader’s agenda while Schumer works to hamstring Trump’s presidency. These include deputies, managers and political appointees who are meant to keep the government running while a new administration comes into power.

The Obama administration made a mission out of demonizing private for-profit colleges and universities, but many of these students are single parents or people who were failed by college-focused federal education policies.

Pulling the rug out from under organizations like ACICS is a blatant, misguided effort by Obama administration bureaucrats who are focused on destroying this industry.

Many of these students are working adults who are trying to improve their lives for the sake of their children. Not only will these Obama-led efforts hurt Americans, but without these colleges and career training programs, our ability to fill the jobs President Trump is working to bring to this county will be severely hindered.

While the Democrats, including Schumer are calling for investigations of some members of the Trump cabinet concerning their meetings with a Russian Ambassadors, Schumer is attempting to make it a non-issue when a photo was found of him and now Russian President Putin meeting with each.

As the Washington Times reported, “Accusations of ties to Russian intelligence agents have dogged Mr. Trump since the campaign; despite no evidence presented that implicates the president or his team in Russian interference with the U.S. presidential election.”
