McConnell Covered Up CIA Reports That Russian Hacks Were Aimed At Electing Trump | Crooks and Liars
This is a disgrace! These super-patriotic conservatives accuse Democrats and left-wing people of being “soft on defense,” and NOW we see that McConnell thinks it’s okay for the Russian government to hack our political parties’ and government’s internet systems if it brings his party political advantage. And the Democrats should have gone ahead and published the CIA’s findings, since this involved the national security, and the Republicans would complain about the Democrats anyway.
This takes us back to when Richard Nixon, Mr. “tough on crime, law and order,” committed damn near treason when he urged the South Vietnamese government to back out of any peace talks in 1968, to make the Johnson administration and Humphrey look bad just before the election. Johnson knew what Nixon was up to, but did nothing, neither did he call Nixon out on it.
