Chuck Schumer Demands Resignation of DHS Chief After Shock Ruling by GAO

The trouble stems from the line of succession preceding these appointments.

President Trump and his administration have been under attack by the liberal left for the entirety of his time in office, and there appears to be no slowing down for the Democrats looking to unseat him in 2020.

One of the latest bones of contention being touted by the left side of the aisle comes after the government’s General Accountability Office proclaimed that a number of Trump appointees, including the head of the Department of Homeland Security, may have been put into their positions illegitimately.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday called for acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf and acting Deputy Ken Cuccinelli to step down after the Government Accountability Office (GAO) concluded they had been appointed invalidly to their posts.

Schumer’s rhetoric was predictably dramatic.

“President Trump’s efforts to install political sycophants to implement his extreme policies in an end run around the law and Senate have finally caught up with him,” Schumer said.

“The determination by an independent congressional watchdog today invalidates actions Mr. Cuccinelli and Mr. Wolf have taken and both should immediately step down from their illegal roles,” he said.

Wolf has been under fire from both sides of the aisle after sending federal law enforcement agents into American cities to respond to civil disobedience – a move that both Democrats and Republicans found to be an alarming overreach.

The issue with Wolf and Cuccinelli’s appointments stems from the line of succession that preceded them.
