Swamp monsters Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have sought to sabotage the president’s agenda since the day of his inauguration. Their efforts to undermine his legislative direction and imperil his credibility with the American people are a national disgrace!
Well, their treasonous ways are finally being laid bare with the FBI’s raid on attorney Michael Cohen’s offices. By failing to condemn Robert Mueller and openly arguing to keep President Trump in legal jeopardy, it’s obvious now where their loyalties lie.
Here’s the scoop from GQ:
“As the Speaker has always said, Mr. Mueller and his team should be able to do their job,” explained a Ryan spokesperson after the president’s weekend fusillade against Mueller in March.
When pressed, Mitch McConnell praised Mueller’s integrity but declined to protect the investigation from presidential interference on the grounds that McConnell doesn’t believe that the president will fire him. “I don’t think that’s necessary,” he said after Trump smeared the Russia probe as a partisan witch hunt. “I don’t think Bob Mueller is going anywhere.” On Tuesday, he trotted out more of the same.
For Ryan and McConnell, their approach to the Mueller investigation has always been the product of a complex risk calculus.
As Mueller reaches the president’s inner circle, though, the investigation, not Trump’s urge to obstruct it, emerges as the most significant obstacle to the implementation of the Republican agenda. Ryan and McConnell are about to spend the summer trying to convince the American people that the GOP has earned itself another two-year legislative majority. An ongoing investigation that yields a growing collection of guilty pleas from the party’s presidential administration will not be a helpful element of that sales pitch.
Here’s more from The Hill:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said he doesn’t think the Senate needs to pass legislation protecting special counsel Robert Mueller, arguing President Trump won’t fire him.
“It’s still my view that Mueller should be allowed to finish his job. I think that’s the view of most people in Congress,” he said.
McConnell is one of several Republican senators to say on Tuesday that Trump should not fire Mueller.
Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, said firing Mueller would be a “big mistake” on Trump’s part.
With Paul Ryan’s retirement certain, now all we’ve got to worry about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Chinese business associates. Until the toxic swamp in Washington is drained of these Trump-hating fat cats, the federal government will continue to bloat with incompetence and fester with special interests.
Should Ryan and McConnell be ran out of town?
