WATCH: McConnell Disappoints By Defending Burr’s Trump Jr. Subpoena

by Paul Goldberg

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell defended Republican colleague and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman, Richard Burr, regarding his surprise subpoena of President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Junior.

“None of us tell Chairman Burr how to run his committee,” said McConnell. “I asked him to undertake this investigation with Russian collusion a couple of years ago.”

McConnell noted that Burr has previously “indicated, publicly, that he believes they will find no collusion.”

The move drew fiery condemnation from Republicans, including President Trump and Don Junior, who, after signaling his intention to ignore the subpoena, agreed on Tuesday to testify at a later date.

Burr declined to comment on Tuesday, stating, “I don’t talk about engagement with witnesses. I don’t have any comment as it relates to the interview process period,” later adding, “We’re continuing to try and wrap up our investigation.”

McConnell is a Deep State swamp creature. One of the many GOP that are. It’s not just the Democrats that are floaters…

The swamp will always defend it’s own. Flip The Switch Mitch can’t be trusted. Ever.

He’s a liar and a hypocrite. Just a week he declared the Russian investigation was over. His “red line” has the same meaning as Obama’s.

Problem is he gets a bunch of people to run against him to dilute the vote and he gets in with a low% vote.

So McConnell when is enough, enough? You rotten Career Politicians have made enough off the legal citizens. I think we should demand that that all you sleazy a–hole politicians show your tax statements so all of your constituents can see them and how much money you have made during your tenure in office. I myself would like to see how much $177.000 will grow to in a short period.

I have never held any illusions about the real Mitch so I am never surprised when he turns coat again. Most of Congress is corrupt. It is not exactly a secret.

Turtle head has always been a disappointment. The Senate leader makes more money on bribes than the entire senate. He gets paid to bring issues to vote or not up to vote. Lobbyist pay big money for that. Why even buy a Congressman when you caa pay McConnell to bury it.. McConneld better financially under Obama and 100% corruption.

McConnell is a Chinese tool..the people of Kentucky keep passing the KY jelly so the nation can be screwed again.

McConnell is another Washington elitist who hates President Trump. Burr’s only object is to question Don Jr. and trip him up on a few nonsensical words in order to set his perjury trap to send Don Jr. away in cuffs to spend 5-10 years in prison. Sends a thrill up and down Burr’s “leg” !
