Schumer Characterizes Trump’s Behavior as ‘Evil Scheme’

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) on Friday dubbed President Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky an "evil scheme." 

"It was clear who was the cook chief and bottlewasher in this whole horrible scheme—this whole evil scheme: Mick Mulvaney," Schumer said during his press conference on impeachment. 

Schumer accused acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney of leading the alleged scheme despite the House Democrats' claim that Trump was solely responsible for directing communications with Ukraine, per witness testimony.

Schumer’s push comes as Democrats pressure Republican Senate leadership to request witnesses, like Mulvaney, to appear before the Senate trial. 

"Why can’t we hear from Mulvaney?" Schumer asked.
