Senator Chuck Schumer of New York was caught openly lying about Americans getting out of Afghanistan this week.
He falsely claimed that all Americans who wanted to get out of the country have done so.
This is simply not true and Schumer knows it.

Chuck Schumer Claims All Americans Who ‘Wanted’ to Leave Afghanistan Got Out; Office Says He ‘Misspoke’
Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) claimed that all Americans who wanted to leave Afghanistan had left the country in a Friday interview with an ABC News affiliate in Syracuse, N.Y.
Schumer, who was visiting the New York State Fair in Syracuse, was asked by NewsChannel 9 reporter Andrew Donovan how the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan would affect Democrats in the 2022 midterms.
“I can’t predict that,” Schumer responded. “There’ll be a job for congressional oversight, there always is, but at the moment actual I’m still focused on trying to get some of those brave Afghans out. The Americans, all of whom wanted to come out have come out, praise God.”

Schumer did not misspeak. He lied.
Democrats are desperate to move on from Afghanistan because they know how bad it looks for Biden.
And they’ll even lie to your face to do it.
