Mitch McConnell Should Explain Why He Obscured Russian Interference In Our Election

From the Lexington Herald Leader’s editors—glad to see this sulfurous bastard getting called to account in one of Kentucky’s top newspapers.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should explain why he blocked a bipartisan denunciation of Russian interference in our election before voters went to the polls.

Americans deserve to hear why McConnell did not trust them with the evidence that he and 11 other congressional leaders received in a confidential briefing in September.

The Washington Post reports that during that briefing McConnell “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.”

2. He should also explain why he blocked President Obama's lawful appointment

of Merrick Garland to the SCOTUS and held the position open until a corrupt Kremlin stooge could be installed in the oval office.

8. Because he KNEW the fix was in. What needs to be found

Is the communications chain (manafort/McConnell, stone/mcconell, etc) that proves it.

It's out there somewhere, I promise.

9. I'm pretty sure that the same parties who hacked the Democrats' e-mail

also hacked the Republicans', and that they know they will have plenty of dirt exposed if they don't fall in line.

3. Moscow Mitch has quite a bit of explaining to do....

(He voted to remove Russian sanctions on Putin's BFF Oleg Deripaska.) Rusal, the aluminum company partially owned by Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, announced plans to invest around $200 million to build a new aluminum plant in Kentucky just months after the Trump administration removed it from the U.S. sanctions list.
