Sen. Mitch McConnell has really evolved into one of President Trump’s reliable supporters in Congress.
In addition to Lindsey Graham, Devin Nunes, and others.
And McConnell just stood up in front of everyone in Congress and told them to their faces: The Russian Collusion Delusion is OVER!
It’s “Case Closed” he said.
Quote: “this ought to be good news for everyone. There was no collusion between our President and Russia”.
You’re exactly right Mitch!
That is, it would be good news for all Americans who want to put the Country First and not their own self-interests and hatred of our President.
Watch the moment here:
Here's more, from the LA Times:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is declaring “case closed” on the Russia probe and potential obstruction of justice by President Trump, deriding Democrats who he says are “grieving” the result.
The Republican leader, in his most significant public comments yet on the investigation, opened the Senate on Tuesday with a speech discussing how special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s “exhaustive” probe went on for two years and is now complete. The remarks, which are certain to please the president, were being billed as his final thoughts on the topic.
“It’s finally over,” McConnell said.
Republicans, taking their cues from Trump, are eager to push past the investigation. But the case is anything but closed for Democrats, who are pressing for further oversight of the White House and the president’s handling of the Mueller probe.
McConnell questioned if others are ready to move on from the “breathless conspiracy theorizing.”
Mueller’s results are “bad news for the outrage industrial complex but good news for the rest of the country,” the Kentucky senator said.
Senate Democratic Leader Charles E. Schumer of New York shot back in his own speech immediately afterward, calling McConnell’s words an “astounding bit of whitewashing.” He challenged McConnell to move legislation that would improve election security and be tougher on Russian sanctions.
