WATCH: Democratic Senator Schumer Once Favored the ‘Nuclear Option’

In 2013, Chuck Schumer blasted [1] the alleged obstructionist tactics by Republicans to use the filibuster in the Senate. Harry Reid, who was the Senate Majority Leader at the time, then invoked the “nuclear option” to override the Republican minority opposition to Obama’s picks to lead federal agencies.

Now, he is making statements to the opposite, hoping that the Republicans will not use the nuclear option that Reid used in 2013.
