When it comes to conspiring against Trump and defying the will of the American People, Democrats & RINOs play for the same team.
No two figures in the U.S. Senate symbolize that more than Chuck Schumer & China Mitch.
With the U.S. Senate now split 50-50, the two leaders worked out a plan to share powers.
The top two Senate leaders are nearing a power-sharing agreement to hash out how the divided chamber will operate, with Democrats in charge of setting the schedule but both parties likely to hold an equal number of seats on Senate committees, sources say https://t.co/LbtXLyA7iV

What a creepy picture!
Two of the slimiest creatures of the congressional swamp all smiles together.
If the recent stimulus package is any indication of the upcoming Congressional agenda, it will include more ways to screw the American People.
There was bipartisan support against Trump to send billions of dollars to foreign countries and give Americans the $600 crumbs.
Democrat or Republican, they’re all buddies who only want to line their own pockets.
Keep in mind, the very Congress that voted to Give Billions of USA Tax Payer Money to Foreign Countries
and Gave you a measly $600 Bucks in CV19 Stimulus
is trying to Impeach Trump who wanted $2k for Citizens and Zero in Foreign Aid.#ImpeachCongress Not Trump! pic.twitter.com/m6SBvZa7TH

Of course, don’t expect Schumer & McConnell to put the American People first.
Democrats will set the agenda and McConnell has proven many times that he’ll ostracize Republicans who stand with Trump.
Much like 2001, tie votes in Senate committees on bills and nominations are expected to advance to floor since GOP and Dems likely to have an equal number of seats on committees, with Dems setting the agenda. New sens from GA and Cali to be soon sworn in https://t.co/k2InH2bFtn

Fake News CNN reported on the negotiations between the Senate leaders:
The top two Senate leaders are nearing a power-sharing agreement to hash out how the evenly divided chamber will operate, with Democrats in charge of setting the schedule but both parties likely to hold an equal number of seats on Senate committees, according to sources familiar with the talks.
The negotiations between Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell have been built largely around how the Senate operated the last time the body was split 50-50: When George W. Bush initially became president in 2001. Final details are still being sorted out between the two leaders, sources said.Similar to those rules, set in January 2001, Schumer and McConnell aides are discussing allowing bills and nominations to advance to the Senate floor even if they are tied during committee votes, something that could become common given that each party is expected to have the same number of seats on committees.Democrats will hold the chairmanships of the committees, giving them power to set the agenda, and Schumer will be granted the title of majority leader since Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will cast tiebreaking votes on the floor.The full chamber still has to ratify these procedures, but that is expected to occur once Schumer and McConnell have finalized their agreement.Democrats are still waiting for the seating of the two new Georgia Democrats — Sens.-elect Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff — who won their runoff races this month. Georgia election officials had expected the certification process to be completed by Tuesday, and if it is, it’s possible the two senators could take their oaths and be sworn in that day, according to Democratic sources.
Harris resigned her Senate seat on Monday, and will soon be replaced by Democrat Alex Padilla. It’s still uncertain when Padilla will be sworn into office.Once Harris gets sworn in as vice president and the final three Democrats take their Senate seats, their caucus will be in charge of a 50-50 Senate with Harris breaking ties.
