    Actually Obama wanted to let the country know, but McConnell stopped it. That is right, the same person who will not allow stronger means to stop the Russian interference in 2020, was the same one who stopped us from really knowing what was going on in 2016.

    Actually some of the bills were non partisan, but that does not matter as for cons winning is the only thing, even if they have to commit treason to win.

    I want to know why Mitch McConnell has halted votes on all of the Election security bills? Some of them are apparently bipartisan in nature, but according to one GOP Senator McConnell told the GOP senators that he would not allow votes on any of those bills. My only thought is that he believes that Trump will once again need the Russian interference to win in 2020. Sometimes I wonder how much money McConnell has taken from the Russians. He apparently cares little about our contry and is only interested in keeping himself, Trump and the GOP in power in that order.
    Sure he does. McConnell knows whatever Russia does will be in Trump's favor; he, like Trump, doesn't give a fat flying fig how the GOP wins, just as long as it does win.

    Did you mean "bipartisan"? You're insult kinda loses something from illiteracy.

    You must have missed a lot of reporting. Saw on the news yesterday story about hacking in Florida. No one can say credibly they influenced the outcome, but clearly they tried. So what’s wrong with trying to make the election more secure?

    That Mother Jones article even linked to this article: F.B.I. Warns of Russian Interference in 2020 Race and Boosts Counterintelligence Operations - The New York Times
    Good news. We should pass it along to the guy in another response to my post who denied it happened or was attempted.

    Why would I waste my time trying. We all know you wouldn't believe it anyway. Dismissed.
