We must take on the big drug companies and pass legislation to lower the cost of life-saving medications that families need. It’s been sitting on Mitch McConnell’s desk for two months. House Democrats did their job, and now it’s time for the Senate to take action.
As reports emerge of renewed Russian interference, remember that Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans have blocked election security bills that would: —Require campaigns to report foreign interference —Hold social media companies accountable —Ensure backup paper ballots
Kentucky Senate candidate Amy McGrath's campaign released two internal polls today that it says "highlight the likelihood for a very competitive Senate race." Internals from a month ago show 46% of undecideds have "negative feelings" about McConnell, campaign says.
Our elections are still not secure—and we have Sen. Mitch McConnell to blame. He has blocked election security legislation for far too long. Senate Republicans need to wake up—Russia is coming for the 2020 elections. We must do everything we can to stop them.
Barr has turned the DOJ into Trump's stooge. McConnell has turned the Senate into Trump's rubber stamp. Gorsuch and Kavanaugh have turned the Supreme Court into Trump's doormat. The GOP has turned itself into a Trump cult. At what point do we call this a dictatorship?
What the hell are Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans waiting for? Declare the House Democrats’ impeachment null and void NOW! The House left for a long recess before sending the articles to the Senate. Enough! The speaker doesn’t run the country.
I’ve never been in a courtroom where the accused can unilaterally block witnesses from testifying or prohibit prosecutors from asking witnesses questions. Yet that's what Trump and McConnell are doing. No court would let a trial to proceed this way—and neither should the Senate.
A Senate trial should be like any other trial. Senators should hear from witnesses. Senators should see the documents. Only then can they make the best possible decision regarding the President's misconduct. Once upon a time, Mitch McConnell felt the same.
