In a Senate floor speech, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said "history is watching" continuing reports of controversial incidents in the Trump administration.
Schumer said he was "shaken" by a New York Times report alleging President Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to dismiss the investigation into Gen. Michael Flynn [Ret.]
"The country is being tested in unprecedented ways," Schumer said.
He added that Trump's alleged actions make him concerned for America's national security, rule of law and government institutions.
Schumer criticized Trump for the frequency of the troubling reports coming out of the White House.
"We are only one day removed from stunning allegations that the president may have divulged classified information to a known adversary," he said.
"History is watching," he added.
