Mitch McConnell, the man who “warned” Elizabeth Warren to stop reading Caretta Scott King’s letter at the confirmation hearing of Jeff Sessions, has been at the forefront of attempts to keep an independent committee from investigating Trump’s Russian ties, and as such, limiting public access to all the facts.
McConnell might not want the public to have all the information because it might become clear that he had knowledge of Russia’s role in the election as far back as September, and he lobbied to keep that information from voters.
According to several officials, McConnell made clear to the Obama administration that he would “consider any effort by the White House to challenge the Russians publicly an act of partisan politics.” He was rewarded for his allegiance. Once elected, Trump chose McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, as his nominee for transportation secretary.
McConnell is now fighting to keep any further investigation into Trump’s Russian ties internal, continuing efforts to block a bipartisan investigation. Limiting the investigation to the House and Senate with their Republican majority would give McConnell control over the investigation, so he could do to the investigation what he did to Elizabeth Warren.
Is McConnell so determined to cover up information because he doesn’t want to reveal his own complicity, his aiding a foreign interest, openly hostile to the United States, and allowing it to manipulate the presidential election in Trump’s favor? This raises the question—
Is Mitch McConnell guilty of treason?
