Schumer: Pompeo Must Give 'Shot Across the Bow' to Putin on Election Meddling

BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 05/13/19 05:23 PM EDT 367

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is warning Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to take a hard line in his meeting this week with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Secretary of State Pompeo must make clear that the cost of trying to interfere with American elections will be dear. Secretary of State Pompeo must deliver a shot across the bow to Putin and any other foreign adversary that would dare think about trying to influence our elections,” Schumer said from the Senate floor.

He added that “anything less from Secretary Pompeo will be a failure of democracy.”

Schumer’s comment comes a day before Pompeo is set to meet with Putin. President Trump will also meet with Putin at the G-20 summit in June.

1. First off Mr. Schumer

it's not a failure of democracy ya half a meatball, at most its a failure in diplomacy.

As to that, what's this shot across the bow supposed to look like? What's he going to do write a heavily stern letter? Take away his birthday? Not buy him a pony?

3. So Schumer wants Trump to engage in super power saber rattling? Trump has a style;

being civil to someone he's trying to hoodwink. Others would punch someone they wanted to enter a deal with. D's should give Trump and America a break and back their Pres. in this troubled time.
