Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer slapped a searing label on the Republican party Thursday, saying that if his colleagues across the aisle remain silent on the “culture of corruption” surrounding President Donald Trump, the GOP as a whole would be a “co-conspirator” with the president.
Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts of campaign finance, bank loan, and tax fraud and directly implicated the president for directing him to commit a crime in a New York courtroom Tuesday.
