Elie Mystal is a liberal activist and blogger who frequently appears on MSNBC. He recently said on the air that Chuck Schumer should resign. In the clip below, he says:
“I do not want to hear people talking about whether or not Nancy Pelosi gets to keep her job before we talk about whether or not Chuck Schumer gets to keep his job. The Democratic party needs to have some accountability. Chuck Schumer spent two years giving away the entire store and all he’s come back home with is a bag of beans.”

Mystal has been saying stuff like this since August. He wrote this at Above The Law:
No current Democrat epitomizes the cowardice and softness of Democratic Party leadership as much as Democratic Minority Leader Charles Schumer. When Kanye West said slavery was a choice, he should have been talking about Chuck Schumer. Schumer holds no real political power, yet represents a district (the state of New York) where he probably cannot be defeated. This should FREE Schumer to stand in moral and righteous opposition to the white supremacist takeover of America led by Donald Trump and his cabal of Senate and House Republicans.
Chuck Schumer is not going to go away so easily.
