  1. Moscow Mitch, knows that it’s too late to have proper security in place for the 2020 Election by pretending to do some thing 3 years into the term.

  2. Moscow Mitch only does what benefits himself so watch out he’s up to something on the sly while pretending to do good

    • Anne Wigdahl me too I’m just not sure the guy challenging him will be able to topple the turtle

    • Cutie B Himself and his Mail-Order Bride , “Boom-Boom!”

    • @D He Because Trump now put his neck on the block and the axe is coming down. If Trump isn’t re-elected, he might face the rest of his life in Jail. Mitch tried to run that train for as long as he could and didn’t jump off in time. He was looking only to himself and now he is trying to run from the train wreck that Trump is.

    • Chad Conley lol your probably right , I think he’s deflecting because she’s being investigated and the turtle is at the heart of the reasons for her choices at the department, hopefully they both get taken out ASAP

    • Cutie B OMG ! Where is my neck?


    • Indi Pillai his wife charged me $15 ,… she swallowed everything for $15 . EVERYTHING!

    • @Indi Pillai I am not a fan of Melania. However, her english is really not that bad. I am quit convinced if Melania and trump would both take an english proficiency test, she would probably acore far higher.
      Of course she has an accent. It is almost impossible not to have an accent in your second language.
      I know I have an accent but that never prevented me communicating with americans.
      Have you ever tried to learn a second language? Have you any idea how much work that is and how hard it can be? You have to learn thousands of words, not only the meaning but also the pronounciation. Then you also have to deal with different syntax and grammar. When you speak a second language, you have to deal with all these elements.

    • sounds like the perfect epitaph to put on his tombstone

  4. Moscow mitch had no problem commiting treason as long as he could get away with it. Now this rat wants to jump ship. Too little too late moscow mitch. Mitch is complicit and will go down with trump. Let them share a jail cell.

    • @Chris Pontello and toothbrushes and soap denied. Let them drink the Water of Flint Michigan out of the toilet.

      Mitch McConnell is not a sincere or honest broker but someone who always has an ulterior motive behind any and everything that he says and does.The bottom line is that this low down dirty dog is not HONEST OR TRUSTWORTHY WHATSOEVER.

    • Piece of crap Moscow Mitch.

    Repubs are so sleazy they can’t be trusted! This is where America’s democracy has landed!

    • Linda Rasmussen …But for whatever reasons the Democrats continue to fall for their schemes. It’s extremely frustrating.

      They’re not all sleazy.

      Screw both parties…just don’t vote for Trump…my dog is running as …a dog !!! lol

    • Vote Blue!

    • We get what we deserve…..we as a nation have unplugged from civics and politics . Schools barely scratch the surface of political science until you reach university levels. They have dumb down the populace deliberately and to great effect. When barely 30 percent of citizens vote what should we expect? The nation should adopt what other nations have and that is all citizens must vote by law. We have trusted that the country would take care of it self and it dose not and can not…..we are watching a democracy die in real-time. We must all act by voting, becoming active in civics at all levels…..simply said , we must all pick up the torch and light the way for democracy to continue.

  6. I dont trust criminal Mitch. He must have something under his sleave


  8. Remember, the election committee doesn’t have enough sitting members to form a quorum. They can’t enable any new regulations.

    • @Daniel Kruger The Federal Election Commission’s vice chairman, Matthew Petersen, retired at the end of August, leaving the commission with only three members. It requires a quorum of at least four members to function. The FEC investigates potential campaign finance violations, issues fines and gives guidance to campaigns about following election law, and is one of the front line organizations combatting foreign influence in US elections. All things McConnell doesn’t want happening.

      So what McConnell did was wait until the Commission could no longer function, then support action, knowing it would only act as window dressing for voters. “See, I supported election security.” Actually, all you did was wait until the Commission could no longer function, then acted.

    • @Canuck Fundy
      You are right. It wad ladt month that the fourth member resigned.

      Time, once again, to e mail our reps, along with our, “reps,” to be certain the Voice of the People is heard. We can also ask our friends and families to do the same.

    • Another republican trick..this needs more attention. they need 4 members to act..

    • @ShadowCat Bingo.

    Moscow mitch, the TRAITOR. Why isn’t he in prison for life yet ?

    • Just me Just me the Russia narrative is over why do you keep flogging a dead horse????

    • Kick Trump and all of his DEMON buddies out of office. They don’t care about human life, the rule of law, or common decency. At the same time kick all the WEAK Democrats who wont stand up for their country and for justice out as well. Vote for true Patriots who aren’t bought and paid for and will serve their country with dignity.

      silence, are you really that stupid ? Hey mr. prosecutor, the bank robbery narrative is over, that was 6 months ago, why do you keep flogging a dead horse ? Like any other crime, being a traitor does not disappear just because time has passed by.

  10. Moscow Mitch stuck out his forked tongue and smelled the wind changing.

  11. So the spotlight focuses on wifey and Moscow Mitch decides to make headlines elsewhere…

  12. This is another lifetimer crook. I hope he lands in jail as well.

    He’s tucked off cause he lost $62 million of federal funds that had been earmarked for military bases in Kentucky.

  14. Moscow Mitch’s wife will also be investigated for using her office for personal gain.

  15. The growing liability of McConnell’s ego was deemed counter to the greater good.

  16. When Trump asked Russia for help on national television. He should have been charged and he should have NEVER been sworn in.

  17. I think that, maybe, the “Moscow” label has woken him up. Good game there Joe!

  18. Moscow Mitch and the GOP………Traitors, Cowards and liars all. Lock em all up!

  19. Moscow Mitch will make sure getting a good percentage of that 250m$ thru subcontracting third parties

  20. Moscow Mitch needs to go Kentucky vote him out he is playing you and the Country.
