In the inaugural episode of Slate’s interview podcast, I Have to Ask, host Isaac Chotiner speaks with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. Sen. Schumer finds himself in a political climate unlike anything he has witnessed in his 38 years in Washington. The Democrats have minorities in both houses of Congress and President Trump is leading an administration unlike any other we have seen in Washington, causing traditional politicians, like Schumer, to think differently about policymaking and messaging.
