Schumer told MSNBC host Joy Reid, “What happened on January 6 is a direct continuation of – for the big lie which Donald Trump perpetrated created January 6 and a continuation of what is happening around the country.”

“Non-partisan election officials, just plain people doing their job to count votes, are being threatened in state after state with violence,” Schumer continued. “A few of them have had to have police protection.”

The Democrat leader contended that the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol was part of a larger trend within the GOP.

“So the idea that January 6 is totally a one-off is wrong. It’s now being perpetrated by this attempt to take away voting rights of so many people, people of color, young people, people living in urban areas, handicapped people, elderly people,” Schumer insisted. “And, so, we have to fight against this.”

Schumer added, “The new Republican Party under the leadership of Donald Trump is viciously against voting rights and trying to take those away.”

“So if we can’t get Republicans, if we can’t get Republicans to join us, we’re exploring a variety of different rules changes,” Schumer wound down. “We are working and trying to get all 50 Democrats, including Senators Manchin and Sinema to go along with those rules changes because if we don’t change rules, the Republicans will block this and our democracy could be at risk and wither in real ways.”
