Moscow Mitch is earning his Moscow Mitch nickname all over again
Moscow Mitch McConnell is daring the powers that be and their lightning bolts again, insisting that Democrats are trying to politicize the whistleblower complaint against Donald Trump.
That would be an intelligence officer’s complaint—which Trump has essentially confessed to—that Trump used Ukraine aid as a lever to force that country’s government to investigate a (checks notes) potential political rival in the 2020 election. “I believe it’s extremely important that their work be handled in a secure setting with adequate protections in a bipartisan fashion—and based on facts rather than leaks to the press,” McConnell said Monday. “It’s regrettable that House Intelligence [Committee] Chairman [Adam] Schiff [D-Calif.] and Sen. [Charles] Schumer [D-N.Y.] have chosen to politicize this issue.”
