Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer recently requested an investigation be opened by Capitol Police.
Schumer claimed he was the victim of fraud, as a document was released claiming he was harassing his interns and aides.
The Democratic Leader is scrambling to uncover the truth— but is facing some serious repercussions if he does not clear his name.
A document was released implicating Chuck Schumer on several sexual harassment charges.
The release of this document is just the latest scandal overtaking Democrats in Congress, as many are being uncovered as predators.
Though no motivation has been found as to why the document would be forged, it is almost certainly a fake according to local authorities.
The Daily Caller reported:
The forged Schumer document comes amid a flurry of sexual harassment accusations against members of Congress, as well as media figures who have lost their jobs following the allegations.
The 13 page document sent to Axios and other media outlets was dated from 2012 with the file name “Schumer Complaint.” Although the document had the look of an official lawsuit filed in in the District of Columbia, no attorney is named.
Additionally, the allegation claims one incident happened in Washington D.C. on a day when Schumer was actually in New York City and another incident happened in D.C. when he was in France.
The former staffer, now a career employee in the federal government, told Axios none of the charges listed were true and her signature was forged. The former staffer, after being informed by Axios of the document, said she plans to go to law enforcement to follow up.
“The document is a forged document and every allegation is false. We have turned it over to the Capitol Police and asked them to investigate and pursue criminal charges because it is clear the law has been broken,” Matt House, Schumer’s communications director said.
He added, “We believe the individual responsible for forging the document should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law to prevent other malicious actors from doing the same.”
Regardless of whether the document holds any facet of the truth, there is currently a major issue in the Democratic Party, concerning sexual predators abusing their money and power to take advantage of their employees while they hypocritically push Republicans under the bus.
After allegations against Harvey Weinstein were released, a domino effect occurred, and dozens of perpetrators were named.
Among them, Al Franken of Minnesota, and John Conyers of Michigan.
