Question: why do we allow traitors subvert our Democracy when we learn the truth?

Joe Biden said Tuesday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped the Obama administration from speaking out about Russian interference in the 2016 campaign by refusing to sign on to a bipartisan statement of condemnation.

That moment, the former Democratic vice president said, made him think “the die had been cast ... this was all about the political play.”

He expressed regret, in hindsight, given the intelligence he says came in after Election Day. "Had we known what we knew three weeks later, we may have done something more,” Biden, a potential 2020 presidential candidate, said.

1. Obama and Biden were in a tough spot. Hindsight is 20-20.


But McConnel can't stop the President from speaking and showing evidence.

Had Obama spoken about the Russian involvement more and discredited the Trump campaign and HRC had won, there would be years and years of congressional investigations.

2. And instead we got

"years and years of congressional investigations."

No question BO should have gone public but everyone thought HRC would squeak by so a massive miscalculation was made.

4. Except McConnell

He knew Russia was going to intervene. That’s why they didn’t seat Merrick Garland

5. So be it ... defending the truth is never a wrong policy

bitch mc connel's crimes must have been known by many ... and his wife's family's mega shipping co. that has be under investigation for bringing drugs into the US? I just think, stop with the collegial democratic notion that every elected official is a patriot. Clearly,
mc connel is now and in the recent past is a traitor to our values and possibly to our country. Why don't we come full force against him? Where is the uproar? He doesn't deserve the respect afforded him as leader of the Senate!
