As Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell (R-KY) could have written himself into history by helping to contain a corrupt presidential administration. He could even look like a patriot by simply voicing continued support for the Mueller investigation. The bar has been set very low for Republicans.
But in a week which has seen Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, headed to jail and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, move ever closer to cooperating with investigators – not to mention New York State dropping a bomb shell of lawsuit on the Trump Foundation – it doesn’t really seem like McConnell can look past the midterm elections. He clearly doesn’t have the interests of either the country or the truth in mind when he spits nonsense about the Mueller investigation like, “[T]hey ought to wrap it up. It’s gone on seemingly forever and I don’t know how much more they think they can find out.”
Not a good look Mitch.
