In this McConnell tape, which is really just opposition research confirming Judd is a loon (Democrats have shown their stupidity once again by even proposing her as a serious candidate) this was a private meeting behind locked doors. The people who did the recording were not part of the meeting. Were not being spoken to. Were not being given advice that is in contradiction with the law, ect.
McConnell's team were only reading Judd's own looney words. Emotional liberals call this "smearing".
