Senators ask to recall name of Merino as drug czarDonald Trump a letter on Monday asking him to withdraw his nomination for a top drug policy position. And now Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is joining the chorus of voices calling on Trump to reconsider.

The request came a day after a joint investigation from the Washington Post and CBS' "60 Minutes," which concluded that Congress and the drug industry fueled the opioid crisis.

One of the most instrumental people, the investigation found, was Rep. Tom Marino of Pennsylvania, a Republican whom Trump nominated to lead the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, a position commonly referred to as the nation's "drug czar."

Specifically, Marino introduced a bill in 2014 that made it harder for the Drug Enforcement Administration to enforce laws that would keep opioids from being diverted to people who might abuse them. A version of the bill became law in 2016.
