Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke up for President Donald Trump after outrage on the left after he admitted that he would listen to a foreign government if they had damaging information about one of his political opponents.
McConnell said on Thursday evening that “they just can’t let it go,” of Democrats who are outraged over Trump’s statement.
“I said weeks ago ‘case closed’. We got the Mueller report, the only objective evaluation that will be conducted. … The case is closed; why don’t we move on and solve the border crisis and approve the president’s USMCA, the new trade deal with Mexico and Canada? We have work to do,” McConnell said.
When pressed by host Laura Ingraham on if he thought the president’s ideology on the subject was illegal, McConnell didn’t answer directly:
“He gets picked at every day over every aspect of it. But the fundamental point is they’re trying to keep the 2016 election alive and the investigation alive, when the American people have heard enough,” he said, turning the conversation back to congressional Democrats.
McConnell added that he “would ask the Democrats in the House this: Is there anything you’re willing to do other than harass the president for the next two years?”
One such frustrated Democrat is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who announced on Thursday https://redbluedivide.com/nancy-pelosi-seizes-the-moment-to-spearhead-anti-trump-legislation/ that she would like to enact legislation that would prevent a campaign from accepting opposition research from a foreign government, according to The New York Post.
“This is an invasion of our democracy. What the president said last night showed clearly — once again — that he does not know the difference between right and wrong and that’s the nicest thing I can say about him,” Pelosi said.
“It’s against the law. It’s so against any sense of decency,” she said. “The law says no contributions — including in-kind — but, if it needs more clarity, then we will go to the duty to report.”
