    “vast dark money resources” = Koch family, Mercer family, etc. They’re the real Trump supporters

  2. mconald turtle boy said it himself.. it is his source of power and he is fighting to keep it. #endcitizensunited

    • All American Citizens that has fallen under Trump spell got to sick together against Mitchell and Trump he is tthe Anti Christ he going to sell America out the Russian and Syria

  3. Money I believe. Mmm, so the government is now for sale for international consumers as well. What happened to america first 😱😱

  4. Power greed and Putin before country. Vote out all Republicans.

  5. Jury tampering is a crime.

  6. So a trial with no witnesses or evidence provided. That’s exactly how trials are conducted in 3rd world banana republics like Venezuela.

  7. Im on the other side of the world and follow your politics closely. Your country stuffed full of idioits

    Citizens United really killed democracy, it just took awhile for everyone to notice.

    • Progressive…..ten short years ago.
      Bernie 2020

    • The highest voter turn out the last 100 years was in 1960 (62.8%) , in general it’s around 55% . A democracy ain’t a democracy if the people don’t participate in the process . Oh please don’t come with the crap we ain’t a democracy but a republic , it’s a republic just like most republics based on a democratic system , there are no democracies Switzerland is the closest , the rest all have representatives of the people just like the USA .
      So go and vote November 3

    • @Perro dehont; Good comment, A democracy which hates politics cannot remain as a democracy.

  9. bought and paid for. reminds one of the worlds oldest profession, thats what the republicans have turned themselves into.

  10. Turtle boy is pulling the purse strings and cowardly republicans are dancing to his tune!!!

  11. So until we get a progressive Democratic majority in the Senate, we won’t get HR1 or any other anti-dark-money laws passed.

  12. One by one we will vote each one of you Republicans out opf office. Start with Moscow Mitch . This has Putin all over it.

    A trial conducted without the presentation of evidence and witnesses is the stuff of dictatorships.
    America-the new dictatorship.

  14. Let’s not forget where a lot of that money came from: Russian oligarchs and shady people like Parnas, who Republicans now refuse to let testify.

  15. Dictatorship on the rise in plain view.

  16. Senator Alexander was once a respected member of Congress and considered an honorable man by people from both parties. That’s all over now.

  17. It doesn’t matter how much money is funneled to Mitch McConnell he’s going to be history come Election Day.💙💙💙💙

  18. MY question is: Are the rubles that are “donated” to McConnell’s super-pac converted to U.S. dollars BEFORE they are “donated”, or AFTER? 🤔

  19. I guess it’s pretty easy to hijack a democracy. All you need is money and keep the middle class dead broke.

  20. Someone in Washington DC that is telling the truth. Refreshing.
