Moscow Mitch McConnell filled a seat in the senate for the last 36 years. Not one positive accomplishment in nearly four decades has his name on it. The truth is that Moscow Mitch is guilty of preventing legislation needed and wanted by most Americans. He is the creator of the “party of no,” and is allowing more than 300 bills passed in the House to sit on his desk without a vote from the senate.
He earned the nickname “Moscow Mitch” last year when he refused to allow a vote on a bill which would aid state’s efforts to prevent foreign interference in our elections. However, this was not the first time Moscow Mitch aided Russian agents in their efforts to influence our nation’s elections.
On several occasions in the last 10 years legislation was proposed which would place sanctions on Russia for its efforts to influence American politics. Moscow Mitch quashed each of them. There is a great amount of evidence that he has received campaign donations from at least two Russian oligarchs.
In October of 2016, just one month before the now infamous election when the American people lost their minds and their freedom, a meeting was held in the Oval Office. Attending were the heads of the CIA, the FBI, President Obama, Democratic leaders Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi, and Republican leaders Paul Ryan, and Moscow Mitch McConnell. The purpose of the meeting was to inform America’s leaders that Russia was indeed attempting to interfere in the upcoming election with the goal of assisting Donald John Trump in his effort to become the President of the United States.
Moscow Mitch stepped forward and demanded that this information remain a secret, refusing to allow American voters to learn about Russia’s efforts. He threatened to claim that Democrats were “rigging” the election if the truth was revealed. Although “experts” claim that Russian agents had no effect on the outcome of the election, this has proven to be a blatant lie. Efforts on social media resulted in a lower voter turnout than expected. Three states gave Trump the Electoral College by a total of just 77,000 votes: Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. The truth is that if one-half-million more voters had gone to the polls, Hillary Clinton would likely be living in the White House today.
Recent information has revealed that Moscow Mitch was invited to the White House in late summer, 2016, by President Obama to learn about the beginnings of the FBI investigation. His response was “I’m too busy.”
This information is contained in a new book by David Rohde titled, “In Deep: The FBI, the CIA and the Truth about America’s “Deep State.” There is much more information contained in the book.
“When Clapper called McConnell to set up the briefing, he did not respond. McConnell finally received the briefing in early September,” Rohde wrote.
Clapper, the director of national intelligence from 2010 to January 2017, said he was surprised that some Republicans, particularly McConnell, did not take election interference more seriously.
“All the previous dealings I had with McConnell, I thought he was a patriot, he cared about the country,” Clapper told Rohde. “But for whatever reason, we were on two different planets when it came to this Russia deal.”
There is evidence that Trump’s first meeting with Vladimir Putin was in 1987 when he attended meetings in Moscow at the invitation of the KGB. There are at least two other occasions when the two men had an opportunity to meet face to face when Trump took the Miss Universe Pageant to Moscow in 2005 and again in 2013. The 2013 event was documented in the Christopher Steele dossier.
Moscow Mitch has remained more secretive, but his actions and inaction speak volumes.
America’s biggest traitor is up for reelection in November. I hope the people of Kentucky care enough about themselves and their country to dump Moscow Mitch.
