Introduction to our election problems and Mitch McConnell role in it...
How To Get Away With Widespread Election Interference...Again! | Full Frontal on TBS
Turns out the Russians interfered with the 2016 election! And they would have gotten away with it too, if not for the tough, unwavering stance of our fearless leader--wait, what’s that? They totally got away with it and are about to do it again? Jinkies!
The security for elections in electronic voting areas are woefully inadequate;
Even the few people concerned with election security in the current GOP administration know they have to hide their concern for the safety of American elections from Trump;
Mitch decided to go the other way and just help Trump by making the elections as unsecured as possible to give Russia as much of an opportunity to reelect Trump as possible;
Mitch McConnell is blocking legislation to secure the election system despite the fact that there is a real problem of hacking in our elections. So, the question arises, 'Is Mitch Mcconnels complete disregard for any additional election safety measure given the increased threat from foreign interference a political stance or something he is doing for Trump so he can get the bills etc. he wants passed?'
Washington Post: Why is Mitch McConnell blocking election security bills? Good question.
That puts McConnell in a tough spot: Pass legislation, which election security experts say is needed, and risk sparking the president’s ire, or block the legislation — and risk increased Russia election interference and public ridicule.
Extract 2: The problem with all this is that Trump’s own top intelligence officials say Russia is definitely trying to interfere in 2020 like it did in 2016. “The Russians are absolutely intent on trying to interfere with our elections,” FBI Director Christopher A. Wray testified to the Senate last week.

Could Mitch be putting American elections at risk so he can save taxes for his donors by keeping Trump happy enough to pass related bills?
Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans want to completely eliminate the estate tax on America's wealthiest families. Not coincidentally, these same families just happen to be some of the biggest donors to the Republican Party.pic.twitter.com/zBMmWKeTk8— Robert Reich (@RBReich) February 21, 2019
Could Mitch McConnell be putting American elections at risk so he can make more money through bribes to get stuff passed (something he seems to be doing WITH his wife!)?
Within five weeks of Mitch McConnell getting that call from David Vitter saying, Hey I've got an aluminum plant we're going to put in your home state! Thanks from Oleg! —Wendy Vitter's nomination got pulled off the trash heap by McConnell and now she is a federal judge. For life. pic.twitter.com/RCC4W1kVCW— Maddow Blog (@MaddowBlog) May 22, 2019
Mitch McConnell DID shutdown an idea that would increase election participation by American Citizens in thier elections that had nothing to do with the unsecured electronic machines (more votes/participation in a Democracy is the lifeblood of a democracy)
Should Election Day be a public holiday? Mitch McConnell tries to shut it down. pic.twitter.com/OrEhqRRUjL— The Daily Show (@TheDailyShow) February 3, 2019
What Fox News will say is that Mitch McConnell has always opposed Federal "takeover" of election machines. If that were true why block a bill to make election day a public holiday? Also, why aren't alternative being offered such as setting up specialized internet hacking protection agencies in every state by Federal order. That way there would be more money in security, with guidelines from the experts, and less federal involvement. Why? Because foreign interference in our elections is a real threat. The lack of concern over this threat is a clear giveaway of the intent of these politicians and pundits, i.e. they are seeking to help rump, at the cost of the Nation, to benefit themselves and their donors/employers.
Media Matters: Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett defends Sen. Mitch McConnell obstructing election security bills Jarrett: "Mitch McConnell opposed a federal takeover of all elections because he's always done that. He knows that states are better equipped to manage their own elections"
CNN highlights a whole bunch of election measures that would make it easier for the American people to vote that the Republicans and Mitch McConnell have opposed, further solidifying the case of putting America at risk and attacking her democracy for personal profit, i.e. treason.
Media Matters: CNN highlights assault on voting rights after McConnell says making voting easier is "a power grab" John Avlon: "Could it be that McConnell doesn't want more people to vote because he sees increased participation as a Democratic plot?"
Of course, lying and covering for Republican politicians is what Fox News is designed to do;
Media Matters: Fox & Friends hosts allow Sen. Mitch McConnell to lie about why he blocked Merrick Garland's Supreme Court nomination McConnell: "The precedent ... back in 2016 when I made the decision not to fill the vacancy during the middle of a presidential election was who controlled the Senate"
This treasonous behavior has earned him the nickname "Moscow Mitch" from conservative commentators from the pre-Trump era because of his ridiculous willingness to let Russia control American elections because his leader wants him to (a normal Republican behavior, in my opinion).
‘Moscow Mitch’ Angry At Being Called ‘Moscow Mitch’ | The Last Word | MSNBC
After blocking bills to keep U.S. elections safe, Sen. Mitch McConnell complained on the Senate floor that he was labeled "Moscow Mitch."
MSNBC: Why is Mitch McConnell blocking bills to protect U.S. elections? Mitch McConnell ignores the warnings of Robert Mueller about the seriousness of Russian interference in our elections. Evan McMullin and Michael Weiss explain why election security legislation is vital to the integrity of a free and fair election in 2020.
