Sen. Chuck Schumer received over $20K from billionaire Jeffrey Epstein years ago for his congressional campaign, and now he’s rushing to get rid of it.
On Tuesday, Schumer demanded that the Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta resign because of his actions years ago that helped Epstein secure a better deal than what he should have received. That begs the question, why is Schumer still in office.
How can you stay in office when you collected over $20K in donations but demand for someone else to resign? The New York Lawmaker has to go!
It is now impossible for anyone to have confidence in his ability to lead the Department of Labor.https://t.co/IRKLvJx9oG

Now it’s time for Schumer to step down.
After press inquiries, Schumer spokesman Angelo Roefaro said the senior New York senator was disbursing a total of $22,000 that Epstein forked over to his congressional campaigns and a couple of Schumer-backing super PACs between 1992 and 1997, according to Federal Election Commission records.
“While these campaign accounts closed about 20 years ago, and even then the campaign never controlled the two political action committees, Senator Schumer is donating an equal sum to anti-sex trafficking and anti-violence against women groups,” Roefaro told the Daily News.
The Epstein cash will be evenly distributed to Safe Horizon, Sanctuary For Families, the Crime Victims Treatment Center and the John Jay College Foundation, according to Roefaro. [NY Daily News]
While Schumer calls on Sec Acosta to resign and Trump to answer for his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein… Did you know he took thousands of dollars of donations from the monster?https://t.co/75i5wM0Moi

Letting Jeffrey Epstein off the hook involved more than Alex Acosta. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales had to sign off on it and over at the FBI, Director Mueller and his #2 James Comey agreed to stop the FBI investigation and drop it. Schumer forgot to mention that.

Another beneficiary of Epstein’s contributions was Hillary Clinton, who received $20,000 from him in 1999. The Senate hopeful received the funds through her joint fundraising committee with the Democratic Party, according to Federal Election Commission filings. In 1992, Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign also received $1,000 from Epstein.
It looks like Democrats have been embracing sex criminals and their money for a long time when you consider Epstein and numerous others in Hollywood.
Schumer got paid by Epstein and benefitted from the billionaire years ago. You can’t give back those tainted years, so he’s got to go too. If Acosta decided it wasn’t in the best interest of staying on as Labor Secretary because of his long-ago prosecutorial decisions, then Schumer shouldn’t be able to remain a U.S. senator for accepting Epstein’s money.
Schumer should resign today, By his standards,
