    Hello Everybody,

    A title well-deserved!
    By conservative former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough!
    Ooh he got US Senator Mitch McConnell mad. Very mad. And to think
    it is all now part of the Congressional Record, where it will live
    on forever ...

    The Kentucky Republican blocked two measures last week that would have
    beefed up election security.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday fired back at
    critics who accused him of being a “Russian asset” after he blocked legislation last week that would have strengthened U.S. election

    “I was called unpatriotic, un-American and essentially treasonous by a
    couple of left-wing pundits on the basis of bold-faced lies,” McConnell
    said in a speech on the Senate floor, denouncing the “shameful” attacks
    as “modern-day McCarthyism.”

    On Friday, MSNBC host and former GOP Rep. Joe Scarborough lit into
    McConnell after he blocked two election security measures. Democrats
    attempted to expedite passage of the measures via a unanimous consent
    request after Robert Mueller, the former special counsel, testified
    Wednesday about continued Russian meddling in U.S. elections.

    “He is aiding and abetting [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s ongoing attempts to subvert U.S. democracy, according to the Republican FBI,
    CIA” and director of national intelligence, Scarborough said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “All Republicans are saying Russia is trying to subvert U.S. democracy, and Moscow Mitch won’t even let the Senate take a vote
    on it. That is un-American.”
