Tuesday Open Thread | Mitch McConnell is as much a threat to this country as Dolt45

Because, he’s a TRAITOR.

Plain and simple.

Never forget…during the 2016 Election Cycle, when President Obama was first alerted at the attempts of the Russians to interfere, he wanted to make a bi-partisan statement, informing the American people of what was happening, and that, AS AMERICANS, both Democrat and Republicans were standing up against this threat from Russia. He did not…BECAUSE MCCONNELL WOULDN’T GO ALONG WITH IT.

The man is a TRAITOR to this country. Can’t be surprising, since, on the night of Barack Obama’s Inauguration, in the midst of the greatest economic downturn this country had seen since The Great Depression, he met with other GOPers to form a plan to block anything that President Obama would present. No matter how it would help the country. He chose ECONOMIC TREASON against this country in 2009. And, ACTUAL TREASON against it in 2016.

New Election Security Bills Face a One-Man Roadblock: Mitch McConnell

By Nicholas Fandos

· June 7, 2019

WASHINGTON — A raft of legislation intended to better secure United States election systems after what the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, called a “sweeping and systematic” Russian attack in 2016 is running into a one-man roadblock in the form of the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

The bills include a Democratic measure that would send more than $1 billion to state and local governments to tighten election security, but would also demand a national strategy to protect American democratic institutions against cyberattacks and require that states spend federal funds only on federally certified “election infrastructure vendors.” A bipartisan measure in both chambers would require internet companies like Facebook to disclose the purchasers of political ads.

Another bipartisan Senate proposal would codify cyberinformation-sharing initiatives between federal intelligence services and state election officials, speed up the granting of security clearances to state officials and provide federal incentives for states to adopt paper ballots.

But even bipartisan coalitions have begun to crumble in the face of the majority leader’s blockade. Mr. McConnell, long the Senate’s leading ideological opponent to federal regulation of elections, has told colleagues in recent months that he has no plans to consider stand-alone legislation on the matter this term, despite clamoring from members of his own conference and the growing pressure from Democrats who also sense a political advantage in trying to make the Republican response to Russia’s election attack look anemic.
