Came out on Friday that the CIA told the Senate that Russia was messing with our election to get Trump elected.
Mitch McConnell told them NOT to tell the public it was happening.
I only have one word for him: Traitor!
I'm not the only one:
What happened? Trump shot himself in the foot:The Washington Post reported on December 9 that McConnell had opposed a joint public statement on Russian election interference before the election, “According to several officials, McConnell raised doubts about the underlying intelligence and made clear to the administration that he would consider any effort by the White House to challenge the Russians publicly an act of partisan politics.”The behavior, as reported, seemed treasonous.
The Trump team’s immediate response calling the CIA liars pushed Republicans, like McConnell away from them, but the straw that may have broken the camel’s back came from Trump himself when during an interview on Fox News Sunday he called the CIA assessment ridiculous and claimed that Democrats were spreading the Russian election interference story as an excuse for losing the election.The Washington Post closes with this little gem:
McConnell has a lot to answer for. The Democrats had better find someone strong to run against him. There are a lot of voters calling McConnell a traitor to his Nation and his home state of Kentucky.McConnell’s quick turn against Trump is proof that the president-elect doesn’t have many friends in the US Senate. If it becomes a matter of saving their own skins, Republicans like Mitch McConnell will throw Trump under the bus without blinking.Make no mistake about it, Mitch McConnell supporting an investigation into Russian election meddling is terrible news for Donald Trump.
