McConnell delivers blazing defense of his position on Russia

McConnell delivers blazing defense of his position on Russia


WE ARE BACKING IT UP TO A RELEVANT POINT. LET’S LISTEN.>>EVEN “THE NEW YORK TIMES” EDITORIAL BOARD NOTED OVER THE WEEKEND THAT WHILE THEY CERTAINLY DON’T AGREE WITH ALL MY VIEWS, THEIR PRINCIPLES GOING BACK DECADES. THE TIMES HAD TO ADMIT THE DEMOCRATS ARE PLAYING POLITICS BY INTRODUCING LEGISLATION, WITH LISTEN TO THIS, NO CHANCE OF PASSING THE SENATE THAT SERVES ONLY TO HARDEN PART OF SCHISM. THAT WAS THIS WEEKEND. MR. PRESIDENT , THAT’S A COMPLICATED MATTER AND THE AGREEMENTS WE USE TO HAVE WITHOUT MAINSTREAM MEDIA OUTLETS SCREAMING. ONE SIDE ARE TRAITORS. THIS CONGRESS, THIS ENTIRE COUNTRY, IT ONLY WORKS WHEN WE REFUSE TO LET BASELESS SMEARS DISPLACE REAL DEBATE. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN SAID WE HAVE THIS REPUBLIC IF WE CAN KEEP IT. AMONG OTHER THINGS, KEEPING OUR NEEDS, WE CAN’T LET MODERN-DAY McCARTHYISM WIN. HERE IS MY COMMITMENT, NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY LIE, AMONG MUCH TO BULLY, WHO WILL BE INTIMIDATED. FOR DECADES I’VE USED MY SENATE SEAT TO STAND UP AND PROTECT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I AM PROUD OF MY RECORD. I AM PROUD THAT IT’S RIGHT THERE IN BLACK-AND-WHITE AND LIARS CANNOT GASLIGHT IT AWAY. IN THE 1980s AS A FRESHMAN SENATOR I STOOD WITH PRESIDENT REAGAN ON MISSILE DEFENSE, THE LIBERAL MEDIA WAS SHRIEKING, SHRIEKING THAT REAGAN AND BUSH FOREIGN POLICY WOULDN’T WORK, I WAS HONORED TO SUPPORT IT WITH MY VOTE AND THEN WATCH COMMUNISM CRUMPLE. IN THE 1990s I USE MY PLACE ON THE STATE COMMITTEE TO SOUND THE ALARM WHEN PRESIDENT CLINTON WAS TOO SOFT ON RUSSIA. HERE’S “THE WALL STREET JOURNAL” 1994. KENTUCKY SENATOR HANDED KEYS TO FOREIGN AID TO BE THE MOST POTENT FLOW OF CLINTON’S RUSSIA POLICY. HERE’S WHAT THAT ARTICLE SAID. “THE REAL CHALLENGE TO THE POLICY IS HIS PLAN TO ATTACH STIFF POLITICAL CONDITIONS TO THAT DATE THREATENING ARE CUT OFF FROM LOSS RUSSIA STOPS MEDDLING AND IT’S NEIGHBOR’S AFFAIRS.” LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN. AS EARLY AS THE 1990s I WAS ON RECORD FOR LASER FOCUS AND MAKING SURE THE RUSSIANS WERE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. MR. PRESIDENT , I ASKED THIS BE PLACED ON THE RECORD. ON THE OTHER END OF THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION I USED HEARINGS TO REAL OFFICIALS COME OPTIMISTIC ABOUT VLADIMIR PUTIN. I DIDN’T SHARE DEMOCRATS FATE THAT HE WOULD BE THERE. I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAY I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MA2 I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MA0 I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAC I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAL I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAI I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAG I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAF I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAR I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAA I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAT I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAU I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAH I ASKED THAT TWO EXCERPTS OF MAR STANCE AND PRESENTING SKEPTICISM ABOUT VLADIMIR PUTIN APPEAR AT THIS POINT. REGARDLESS OF WHO IS IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND REGARDLESS WHICH WAY THE POLITICAL WINDS ARE BLOWING I HAVE CONSISTENTLY TREATED RUSSIA LIKE THE THREAT THAT IT IS. EVEN UNDER A REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATION I SPOKE OUT WHEN I WAS IN FOR THE U.S. WASN’T DOING ENOUGH TO STOP THE EROSION OF DEMOCRACY IN RUSSIA. I COAUTHORED IN DECEMBER 2003, THE MANAGERS REMAIN BRAVELY CONCERNED WITH THE DETERIORATION AND SYSTEMATIC DISMANTLING OF DEMOCRACY IN RUSSIA, WE PUSH PRESIDENT BUSH’S ADMINISTRATION AIR PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION TO DO MORE. OF COURSE, I HELPED LEAD THE CHARGE AGAINST THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION COMPLETELY FECKLESS, RUSSIA POLITICS. PRESIDENT OBAMA MARKED HIS 2012 OPPONENT FOR TAKING THEM TOO SERIOUSLY. HIS ADMINISTRATION SAW A NAIVE RESET WITH THE KREMLIN AND FOR EIGHT YEARS I HELPED LEAD THE CHARGE AGAINST THAT WEAKNESS. IN 2010 I STOOD WITH JOHN McCAIN. HAS VLADIMIR PUTIN WAS BUILDING UP HIS MISSILE ARSENAL WE EVEN HAD TO PUSH PRESIDENT OBAMA TO COMMIT TO DEPLOYING CAPABLE MISSILE DEFENSES TO EUROPE. IN 2012 I HAD THE SUPPORT TO APPLY HEAVY SANCTIONS FOLLOWING THE KILLING IN A RUSSIAN PRISON. THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION FLINCHED AND TRIED TO TIPTOE AROUND OUR LEGISLATION TO AVOID MESSING UP THEIR CHARM, BUT WE PACKED THEM IN A CORNER AND THE PRESIDENT SIGNED THE BILL. IN 2014 I AND OTHER REPUBLICANS CONSTANTLY PRESSED PRESIDENT OBAMA TO GET TOUGHER ON RUSSIA AND UKRAINE. I ASKED A NEWS ARTICLE DATED MARCH 4TH 2014 TITLED, MITCH McCONNELL, OBAMA’S PASSIVE FOREIGN POLICY IS A MISTAKE. SINCE 2017 I HAVE CONTINUED REMINDING EVERYBODY THAT HE IS NOT OUR FRIEND. I RUSSIAN IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO TRY TO MODEL THAT WE NEED A COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGY TO CONTEST RUSSIAN AGGRESSION, ALLIES LIKE NATO ARE CRITICAL FOR STANDING UP TO OUR ADVERSARIES. ONCE MORE FOR GOOD MEASURE MR. PRESIDENT I ASK THAT THE NEWS ARTICLE DATED AUGUST 15TH 2018 ENTITLED, “TOP REPUBLICAN LICHENS RUSSIA TO OLD SOVIET UNION” MR. PRESIDENT I DON’T NORMALLY TAKE THE TIME TO RESPOND TO CRITICS, WHEN THEY HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT, BUT THIS MODERN-DAY McCARTHYISM IS TOXIC AND DAMAGING BECAUSE OF THE WAY IT WARPS OUR ENTIRE PUBLIC DISCOURSE. FACTS MATTER. DETAILS MATTER. HISTORY MATTERS. IF OUR NATION IS LOSING ITS ABILITY TO DEBATE PUBLIC POLICY WITHOUT SCREAMING ABOUT TREASON, THAT REALLY MATTERS. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE 20TH CENTURY THE ORIGINAL McCARTHYISM HEARD AMERICA’S STRENGTH AND DIMINISHED OUR STANDING IN THE COLD WAR BY

  • MrMentalflossed says:

    Clearly, the Russians favor the Republicans and mitch wants all the help he can get for the GOP…. but
    the real question, the one nobody asks, is why they support the republicans in the first place.

  • Hey Mitch-Hell is a really warm place and you best believe that's where you are heading when your time on this earth is over. You are a disgrace to America. All of you who support this are disgraceful. You are brainwashed, you believe lies, and the people who want to harm you, are the people running the country. When will you wake up?

  • Moscow Mitch and the Trump state know that time is running out on them and that they will have to face the consequences of their traitorous actions!

  • What is problem?! Patriots love Comrade Meetch! Dah!!! MAGA, yes! AMERICAN FLAG! DAH! Nothing to be seeing here! Good American MAGA!! Dah!!!! He is true patriot of motherland, in American State of Kintucky, DAH! Awesome American Hero! Trump loves Comrade Meetch! Why such crazy talk of Russian Interference! Is hoax! Dah! You must be melting snowflake not patriot! MAGA is A-OK with Comrade Meetch! "usususus" waving American flag!

  • The whole "Russia Hoax" idea was a PR campaign by Russians just like "Lock her up" and "build the wall". Confuse enough dumb Americans with the media "hoaxing" them and they will believe you when you call out something obvious that is NOT a hoax. total Russian playbook. And who better than Fox's viewers, the dumbest, angriest white Americans in history.

  • Poor Mitch had to do a defense speech when finally focus is on his blatantly partisan misconduct of not letting sensible election protection bill up for vote. Strange he does not see Trumps deliberately dividing and racist words and actions in the same light as the attacks on himself.

  • Moscow Mitch, the Trumpturd traitor, is just doing what his deplorable constituency and the despicable traitor in the White House want him to do.

  • If the Republican party is smart, they will get rid of this corrupted traitor loser as their leader. Our country won`t heal until we rid Washington of him and the corruption of BOTH parties.

  • Todd Schneider says:

    I am proud of Mitch on this issue because he is on the right track by allowing foreign interference in American elections. He knows that Russia and China can run this country better than these democratically elected officials. Foreign influence should be allowed to make and change laws that ultimately benefit their own countries. The USA has long been the bully on the block and now it’s time for Russia and China to take over. The public should welcome the take over of ideas from these governments because Oligarchs and Communists know what’s better for Americans.

  • This turtle has always bin a worm.. There is nothing to politicize about defending our sovereign democracy.. He's a traitor and this rant doesn't help his treasonist cause.. Please go away and go to Russia u Damm traitor!

  • Выборы-2020: эй, «Митч-москвич», русские снова идут!
    (Vybory-2020: ey, «Mitch-moskvich», russkiye snova idut!)
    "Election 2020: hey, Moscow Mitch, Russians are coming again!"

  • He has been compromised. He's a Russian puppet, seems like America is losing their power to Russia. It's crazy how they wanted to take over the world by force eons ago, but now they have gotten themselves some insiders to do their bidding. I think they're actually completing that dream of taking over the world..smh sad

  • The only thing blazing about this Fox Fake News and Propaganda report are the blazing lies this old, treasonous, fossil told on the floor of the senate. Moscow Mitch is a russian asset and needs to be removed from office for treason against the United States of America.

  • Moscow Mitch is working very hard to keep our election system vulnerable. He aided Olrich Deripaska who is a Russian billionaire by easing sanctions on his aluminum company making him billions. Interestingly enough, Olrich Deripaska has invested millions in a Kentucky business just after Moscow Mitch's support. Moscow Mitch has also received money for his political campaign funneled through political organizations by Olrich Deripaska. Yes, Moscow Mitch is a Russian asset.

  • 2016 elections were meddled and all politics have been meddled ever since "as we sit here" like Robert Mueller and all US intelligence agencies agree. Why would anyone block bills from vote on election security?

  • Brendan Holmes says:

    Around 1:00 mark Mitch almost has a Freudian Slip and says "Mother Fu…"
    Around 2:00 mark he means to say "I've used my Senate seat…" BUT it sounds like, and other videos confirm in the CC "Abused my Senate seat…"

  • Mitch, you said a lot about your past experience, but we are talking about now! Tell us about what you did today! It was real politically feasible for you to fight against Russian then, but it is in your benefit to not protect our democracy now. Any protection against Russia justifies the investigation of Trump

  • Moscow Mitch is submitting all these articles to the senate. Nobody is there, chairman looks bored beyond belief. Go home toad. OMG! 😂

  • Frank Griegorian says:

    He is just kidding he loves my friend V.Putin President of Russian Federation he ask my friend what he could do to get reelected and want to take Big Russian medal and become Honorary citizen of Moscow he try to fool America to pretend he no like Mother Russia he lie like this Trump !!!!!!! 🇷🇺😀😁😀🇷🇺

  • Christine Macdonnell says:

    He must refuse election protection because he knows the Democrats are on their way to take WA. The only option Republicans have is to suppress voters and cheat. He's also turning quotes in his favor. What about the mill in KY? Liar, thief, unpatriotic, not working for the state of KY or the US. Only enforcing his own agenda, to fill the courts with conservative judges and pretend to be a demigod.

  • TypicL Fox news’s doesn’t show McConnell explain why he won’t bring legislation to floor on election security. Just glorious past with Mcarthy sound bite. Of which Joe McCarthy was a Republican.

  • Oh look it's Moscow mutt Mitch..
    President buttheads lap dog.
    As long as the checks keep clearing.. to that shell company that's not connected. Oops

  • Awwwwww! Diddums!!! Someone has finally given you a dose of your own "medicine" … and there you stand … bleating like the lost little hypocrite you are.

  • During the GOP breakfast, McConnell defended efforts of Russian interference in U.S. elections, saying he's "absolutely confident we're going to have Russian help election in 2020."
    He said 2018 was an "extraordinarily successful" election. And I will block all voting security. Trump can get "help" from anybody he deems fit.

  • Moscow Mitch basically sold a chunk of Kentucky to a Russian Oligarch in exchange for helping the Russians. Traitor and a disgrace.

  • Moscow Mitch won't do anything to anger the Russians who pay to keep Putin's Republican puppets in power. Moscow Mitch is a traitor to the United States.

  • the Omega Concern says:

    Ok fine Mitch. You stop policies to protect against Russian interference into elections because you think Dems are using these bills as a Trojan horse. Fine. But you offer no alternative to stop Russian hacking which was , is and will continue.

  • Frank Griegorian says:

    I hear he hurt his shoulder good thing he did not break neck Mother Russia would lose Big Russian Hero in America !!!!!! My friend V.Putin President of Russian Federation would be very sad !!!!! 🇷🇺😁😀😁🇷🇺

  • Time for Moscow Mitch to go… Ask the coal miners that he represents. They'll give you an earful cause he won't hear them out.

  • Mitch: "We can't win another election without further help from Russia, and I want to win! Oh crap, did I say that out loud?!"

  • HOW ON EARTH does this old fart think taking measures to secure our country's democracy is a 'partisan' issue?!?! I'm so done with this guy…even Kentucky natives are sick of this guy who seemingly lives on forever. He's the reason the very foundations of this country's stability and faith in our elections is shaken; people will lose trust of it, all because THIS guy probably already knows the Russian's ARE interfering and doesn't want his plans to be re elected to be derailed. He should be ashamed of himself…oh wait…he has no shame. Oh well, it won't be long till he and Trump will go away forever. They're both as old as dirt. Can't wait. I can't wait till Trump is gone. I am so ready for someone to be in that office that conducts themselves as a professional with decorum in front of the world. Every single tweet, response to media that he makes is complaining. Whining. Crying. Playing the victim. No wonder the Europeans hold up signs and pinatas of a big baby trump with diapers on for him to see when he travels over there. They see it too. Trump wants to win 2020 not for the United States. He wants to prolong the indictments the New York prosecutors are chomping at the bit with as soon as he leaves office. They've announced they've got plenty on this fraudster. What a circus this guy is no matter where he goes.

  • Mitch has changed a lot from the Reagan era. Has been in Congress for way too long. Has gotten lost in the money. Corrupt old man. A Russian puppet
