The walls are closing in on Schumer…

Sen. Chuck Schumer, who insisted that President Trump should “answer” for his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein has been discovered to have accepted thousands of dollars in donation money in the 1990s from none other than Epstein himself.

The FEC records show that Schumer received seven $1,000 donations from Epstein between 1992 and 1997, first as a US congressman from New York and then when he was vying to be the state’s senator in 1998, an election he won.

Epstein also gave $10,000 to Victory in New York, a joint fundraising committee established by Schumer.

Epstein gave an additional $5,000 to Win New York, a Schumer-associated joint committee that benefited the Liberal Party of New York state.

Both of Epstein’s donations to the committees came in October 1998 — and look to have primarily benefited the DSCC and the Liberal Party of New York, as Epstein would have already met the $2,000 limit on donating individually to Schumer.

At the time, donors could give $1,000 to a candidate per election — once in the primary and again in the general.

That means Schumer and Schumer-linked entities received a combined $22,000.

Schumer spokesman Angelo Roefaro responded, “While these campaign accounts closed about 20 years ago, and even then the campaign never controlled the two political action committees (PACs), Senator Schumer is donating an equal sum to anti-sex trafficking and anti-violence against women groups.”

The top Senate Democrat previously donated $14,200 — the amount donated to his campaigns by accused sexual predator Harvey Weinstein — to several charities supporting women.

On the Senate floor Schumer had made three Epstein-related demands.

He first called on Acosta to resign.

Acosta, the former US attorney in Miami, was responsible for inking a plea deal with Epstein that victims weren’t informed of, according to an expose in the Miami Herald.

While Epstein was accused of molesting dozens of teenage girls at his Palm Beach estate, he served just 13 months in prison, much of it out on work release.

“Instead of prosecuting a predator and serial sex trafficker of children, Acosta chose to let him off easy,” Schumer said on the floor. “This is not acceptable. We cannot have, as one of the leading appointed officials in America, someone who has done this.”

Schumer also asked that the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility make public its review of Acosta’s handling of the case.

Finally, Schumer said Trump should paint a fuller picture of what he meant when he called Epstein a “terrific guy” in a 2002 article for New York Magazine.

An April 2011 court filing shows that Trump eventually barred Epstein from Mar-a-Lago “because Epstein sexually assaulted a girl at the club,” the documents allege.

Trump didn’t officially launch a political career until June 2015. No FEC records show that Epstein was ever a Trump donor.

  1. Mr Schumer such a patriotic guy that work so hard for the american people , such a fighter for transparency and integrity ,,perhaps we should ask him now for his last 6 years tax returns so he can prove to us what a sincere and honest guy he really is since he has expended the last 3 years in the senate doing nothing but obstructing and running his big mouth against his president.

  2. Chuck U is a perfect example of why people hate politicians. He is arrogant, dishonest, and only sees what is good for his party not the American people. He is a scumbag.

  3. If he is so damn smart why does he have to bend down and read every thing he says? Can’t he speak without reading what some one else write?

  4. Well lets just look at you schumer , who passes judgement on others but not with what you have done. Well looks like schummer you had more connection to epstein then Trump ever had. – Talk about being a dirt bag-your it. And he gave you all kinds of money.

  5. Schmucky reminds me of that weasel in the old Warner Cartoon that got the spinning pinwheel eyes when he saw a flock of chickens. That Schmucky when he sees news cameras. When I see this fool Fletcher’s statement to the Senator in The outlaw Josey Wells” comes to mind. He and every other Democrat and RINO in Congress do it when they speak to us. To clean it up “Urinate down our backs and tell us it’s raining.”

  6. Yeah I would like to know what else did Epstein give Schumer for his votes…? Chuck damn sure doesn’t give a damn about the children being raped & murder by people that shouldn’t even be in the country…right?
