In an unusual testy exchange on Capitol Hill, Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer slammed conservative critics who he claimed were seeking to exploit the Boston bombings as a tactic to delay immigration reform, provoking an emotional response from GOP Senator Chuck Grassley.
In the midst of a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, the clearly agitated Grassley abruptly yelled at Sen. Chuck Schumer as the Democrat from New York made the accusations against conservative critics.
“I never said that!” Grassley shouted, turning toward Schumer. “I never said that!” Clearly caught off guard by the GOP Senator’s outburst, Schumer replied, “I don’t mean you, Mr. Grassley.”
