McConnell rails against Mueller report politics in blistering floor speech: ‘Case closed’

May 7, 2019

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, in a scorching floor speech on Tuesday, accused Democrats of rooting for a “national crisis” for political gain as he appealed to lawmakers to move on from the Russia controversy now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report is complete.

“Case closed,” McConnell, R-Ky., declared. “Case closed.”

Coming as Democrats clash with Attorney General Bill Barr over his handling of the report while using the findings to fuel their own investigations, McConnell suggested the political debate has shifted from the real problem of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“Many Americans were waiting to see how their elected officials would respond,” McConnell said. “With an exhaustive investigation complete, would the country finally unify to confront the real challenges before us? Would we finally be able to move on from partisan paralysis and breathless conspiracy theorizing? Or would we remain consumed by unhinged partisanship, and keep dividing ourselves to the point that Putin and his agents need only stand on the sidelines and watch as their job is done for them?”

    Former Russian Premier once bragged during the cold war,“We will take America without firing a shot. We do not have to invade the U.S. We will destroy you from within….” Looks like his statement is becoming. Even aside from Hillary’s collusion indicated by her actions it looks like the democrats are unwittingly contributing to Kruschev’s prediction.

    I think it is time for the people to unite against this Congress whose only intent is to destroy Trump. I am sick and tired of their political games and stunts and getting nothing done to help our Taxpayers and help our President save our country. I for one, a taxpayer since 1957, am tired of the wasted time and money Pelosi and her Congress have spent on stupid hearings. Enough already. We need to march on DC and throw them all out of their office; and stop their pay and benefits and sent them home. McConnell is correct and I support his view.
