Washington Post columnist accuses McConnell of doing 'Putin's bidding'

" Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Friday after the GOP leader blocked two election security measures this week. ...and labeled the GOP leader "a Russian asset."

"This doesn’t mean he’s a spy, but neither is it a flip accusation," Milbank wrote.

"Russia attacked our country in 2016. It is attacking us today. Its attacks will intensify in 2020. Yet each time we try to raise our defenses to repel the attack, McConnell, the Senate majority leader, blocks us from defending ourselves," Milbank continued.

“Let’s call this what it is: unpatriotic. The Kentucky Republican is, arguably more than any other American, doing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s bidding,” he wrote.....

The columnist accused McConnell of "aiding and abetting Putin’s dismantling of Americans' self-governance," adding, "A leader who won’t protect our country from attack is no patriot.” 

The Senate majority leader has panned Democratic bills to boost election security as efforts to grant themselves “political benefit.” :blink: ........

#MoscowMitch Trends on Twitter

as Mitch McConnell Blocks Election Security Bills

Despite 'Unprecedented Level' of Russian Interference

"......Scarborough made reference to an effort in 2016 ahead of the election by President Barack Obama to sound the alarm to American voters about Russian interference by urging congressional leaders to sign a bipartisan statement condemning it publicly.

At the time, according to The Washington Post, McConnell rebuffed Obama's suggestion, and said he would view the White House talking publicly about Russian interference before polling day as an act of partisanship designed to aid the then Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.......

"Now we have, almost four years later, the same warnings coming, coming not only from the independent counsel…we now have the intel committee in the Senate, run by North Carolina Republican Richard Burr saying what?

"That the Russians tried to infiltrate all 50 states in 2016 to undermine American democracy, and to undermine free and fair elections. And on the same day, Moscow Mitch blocks two bills that would actually protect us from a Russian invasion in this area."

Scarborough later added: "He is aiding and abetting Vladimir Putin's ongoing attempts to subvert American democracy,.....

#MoscowMitchMcTreason trends after McConnell defends blocking election security bills

 

........McConnell responded on Monday, decrying the attacks against him as “modern-day McCarthyism.

“I was called unpatriotic, un-American and essentially treasonous by a couple of left-wing pundits on the basis of bold-faced lies. I was accused of aiding and abetting the very man I’ve singled out as an adversary and opposed for nearly 20 years, Vladimir Putin,” McConnell said.

“These pundits are lying, lying when they dismiss the work that has been done. They’re lying when they insist I have personally blocked actions which, in fact, I have championed and the Senate has passed," he added. "They are lying when they suggest that either party is against defending our democracy.”

Social media users, however, doubled down on their tweets criticizing the senator. Both the hashtags #MoscowMitchMcTreason and #MoscowMitchUnAmericanTraitor began to trend across the United States.

“The Breakfast Club” radio host Charlamagne tha God wrote that it “feels good” to wake up and see the phrase trending nationally.

 

“These guys are blatantly openly working with the Russians to keep power and until I saw that trending I thought nobody cared. AMERICA your illegitimate president is a Russian agent. #FightTheFascists,” he wrote on Twitter....

Tweets like this are gifts to the GOP.    This guy is a nut case.  

I'm not defending the GOP Senate and their do-nothing POV here.    Yesterday I saw a GOP politician defend the GOP stance by claiming no one can point to even ONE incidence where Russians interfered in the 2018 election,   and that measures were already put in place.    Therefore the Dems bills were all unnecessary and just a political stunt to make the claim that Trump is an illegitimate President and \ or a Russian agent.

Hard for Dems to attack those talking points with morons like this on their side.

McConnell, who has been righteous in his indignation over being called Moscow Mitch,
 
could just vote against the election security legislation as a measure of showing his opposition
 
while still allowing it a vote on the floor….
 
Right?

seriously, trump haters, if the man is so bloody evil and awful then why does he have such an excellent chance of being reelected?

because you are disconnected. in the face of the democrats' desperate identity politics trump has delivered tangible results. admittedly imperfect but real as opposed to the disconnected feel-good empty symbolics of the other side.

Democrats pressure Mitch McConnell to cancel Senate recess for gun control vote

A bipartisan gun bill passed the Democrat-controlled House in February.
 
..... “One awful event after another. Leader McConnell must call the Senate back for an emergency session to put the House-passed universal background checks legislation on the Senate floor for debate and a vote immediately," Schumer said in a statement. .......
 
 

Now maybe if they had emailed Mitch in Russian, he would have been better able to understand them......

Dear

@senatemajldr

, You now have 2 nicknames:

1. #MoscowMitch for blocking legislation that secures our elections from Russian interference.

 

2. #MassacreMitch for blocking legislation that makes it harder for mass shooters to obtain weapons designed to mass kill human beings.

Aide: Sen Mitch McConnell trips, breaks shoulder in Kentucky

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is recovering at home in Kentucky after suffering a shoulder fracture in a fall Sunday, a spokesman said.

McConnell tripped on his outdoor patio at his Louisville home Sunday morning, and has been treated and released after getting medical attention, said David Popp, a spokesman for the Kentucky Republican. Popp's emailed statement said the 77-year-old McConnell is working from home in Louisville and "will continue to work from home" for now.

The statement didn't elaborate on where he received help or what treatment he received or the expected time needed for recovery. A McConnell spokesman didn't immediately return a telephone message Sunday evening.

The statement said McConnell has expressed his sympathies to the people of El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, following the recent mass shootings in those communities and that he had been in touch with two Senate colleagues for those states.

McConnell returned to Kentucky after the Senate began a five-week recess Thursday, hailing the chamber for a hard-won budget deal that staves off a possible government shutdown. But McConnell, who is up for reelection next year and has aligned himself closely with President Donald Trump, has recently been criticized for blocking election security legislation aimed at protecting the nation's political system against foreign attacks.

On Saturday the sixth-term senator attended Kentucky's premier political event, where some Democrats wore "Moscow Mitch" shirts depicting the communist-era hammer and sickle and others heckled McConnell during the stump-style speaking at the Fancy Farm picnic.

McConnell has pushed back hard against his critics, likening the attacks to "modern-day McCarthyism." He received a long ovation during a Republican breakfast Saturday.

"It's appropriate to see a bunch of Democrats running around with communist flags on their shirts," the senator told reporters at the breakfast. "That ought to tell you something about where they want to take the country with the Green New Deal and Medicare for all. Their whole agenda would fundamentally change the country with something it's never been."

I remember when Harry Reid had an accident in his home gym the wingnuts said what really

happened was that he was involved in some kind of gay sex that went bad. Doubt they will

say the same thing about Moscow Mitch's injuries.
