Dems Jump Ship from "Bi-Partisan" Group Targeting Dems

Schumer's full statement:

"The Foundation for Defense of Democracies was founded in the aftermath of 9/11 as a nonpartisan group committed to defending our democratic values against the threat of Islamic terrorism. However, the foundation has strayed considerably from its original purpose. I regret this development--and I regret even more the partisan agenda that the organization has pursued instead. I recently severed all ties to the foundation upon learning of the divisive, political attacks it has sponsored against dedicated public servants. I was never consulted about these activities and, of course, condemn them. While I remain committed to the proud cause of defending our nation's democratic principles, I can no longer support an organization that has ventured so far afield from that goal.
