Mitch McConnell Comes Out Against Trump And Contradicts Him On Russia In Move No One Saw Coming



The dark cloud of collusion with Russia is one that has hung over the presidency of Donald Trump ever since he took up that high office. Even now that the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been delivered to the office of Attorney General Bill Barr, the saga does not appear to be over, because debate and allegations are raging still about who might have covered up what. When historians look back on Trump’s time as President of the United States and leader of the free world, Russia will be by far the biggest theme of his domestic politics, and that is something that he will always have to live with. Even as someone at the very top of the Washington right wing establishment, Trump has not had enough power to shake off the allegations and clear his name.

Recent reports are suggesting that even the power Trump has is now slipping away, because his most senior friends and allies are deserting him. Shockingly, Sen. Mitch McConnell now seems to have come out against the President on this crucial issue. McConnell is the leader of the Republican majority in the Senate and is one of the most powerful pro-Trump faces in the world right now, so for him to directly contradict the President on this is quite something, and could suggest that Trump’s days in the Oval Office are numbered. The reports about what McConnell said make for staggering reading:

After years of deflecting and downplaying the notion that Russia interfered in an American presidential election, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced on Sunday that Russia poses a “significant threat to American interests.” McConnell acknowledged what all U.S. intelligence agencies have been saying for several years only after Attorney General William Barr reported that Russia had, according to special counsel Robert Mueller, interfered in the 2016 presidential race. The report concluded that neither President Donald Trump nor his campaign had collaborated with Moscow.

Trump has spent as long as anyone can remember flat out denying any wrongdoing of any kind with relation to Russia, and making out as though anyone who saw Russia as a threat to our democracy had gone things completely wrong. So for McConnell to go entirely against that and admit, in no uncertain terms, that Russia actually does pose a very significant threat to the integrity of our political system is quite something. The ball is now very much in Trump’s court.
