Trump Says He'll Fight for Ratcliffe to Offset Spy Agencies 'Run Amok'

Mitch McConnell Top Trump ally angrily hits back at 'modern-day McCarthyism' amid row over election security and Russia

Trump: I think the Washington Post is a Russian asset, by comparison.

McConnell defended his procedural roadblock on the legislation, noting that unanimous consent requests from the minority party are frequently denied.

But McConnell's critics revived their attacks last week, after special counsel Robert Mueller confirmed his report on Russian interference in the presidential election for the first time before Congress. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY asked McConnell for a unanimous request to pass a bill that would spend hundreds of millions of dollars to improve election security and require the use of backup paper ballots.

McConnell objected to the motion because he said the bill, which was already passed by the Democrat-controlled House, was too one sided.

They also should refuse to confirm Ratcliffe unless he convincingly promises to follow Coats' lead in treating past and potential foreign interference in us elections as the threat it is.

'The Outrage-Industrial Complex needed a new target.

"Don't worry, Donald, I'm not angry". "I think it's irresponsible and not for any clear objective beyond the defense portion, which I support".

He mentioned that he was also called "un-American" on MSNBC Monday.

The decision to back Trump over passing legislation that election security experts support has opened him up to some severe criticism.

Is No Credit Better Than Having Bad Credit?
In fact, that’s the best possible use of credit — engaging it to do something that can help you make money. No Credit The good news about having no credit history is there’s nothing negative about you out there.

McConnell continued: "Now, at least [MSNBC] is honest about what it offers, and it isn't journalism".

The senator added: "This modern-day McCarthyism was pushed by big-time outlets". As supporters of state prerogatives, Republicans could be expected to oppose the bill, and sure enough it only got one Republican vote in the House. So I objected, ' he said.

Members of that administration, including former Vice President Joe Biden and chief of staff Denis McDonough pointed fingers, however, at McConnell, claiming he prevented the administration from going more public about the Kremlin's 2016 attacks claiming he would not sign a bipartisan statement condemning the Russian actions.

"A leader who won't protect our country from attack is no patriot", he wrote.

When asked if he has the qualifications for the job, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he hasn't even met him yet. "If they actually said that, they ought to be ashamed of themselves, and they ought to apologize".

"McConnell was a Russian Federation hawk in his party before Donald Trump turned the Republican Party into a Russia-acquiescent party", she said, arguing McConnell will continue to face this type of criticism.

Rachel Stephens, a spokeswoman for Ratcliffe's congressional office, confirmed to The New York Times that the Justice Department had appointed him "to investigate issues related to the outcome" of the Hamas case. "I think we could have done a much better job, or at least tried harder, to save money".

The day after Mueller testified, the Senate Intelligence Committee released a report revealing that "the Russian government directed extensive activity, beginning in at least 2014 and carrying into at least 2017, against usa election infrastructure at the state and local level".

There have been several efforts put forward by lawmakers to try and stop that from happening in 2020.
