Moscow Mitch Blocked Bipartisan Effort For Election Security
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
On Thursday, July 25, 2019, a bipartisan report from the Senate Intelligence Committee indicated that Russia’s interference in 2016 election targeted all 50 states, more than previously known. It also indicated that significant vulnerability remained in the U.S. election system that needs to be addressed before the 2020 election. Some of these vulnerabilities are:
- aging voting equipment,
- paperless machines,
- insecure voting registration databases.
- Even though the Senate Democrats tried to push for more funding for election security, the Republican leader Mitch McConnell from Kentucky blocked the bill to improve election security. As a result of this move, Mitch McConnell has earned himself the title “Moscow Mitch” among many.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY., blocked two election security measures on Thursday, a move that came after the special counsel’s House hearings and the same day the Senate Intel Committee released a report on Russian interference, in the video “Joe: Mitch McConnell Won’t Allow A Vote On Protecting America, Morning Joe, MSNBC“, below:
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, in the video “Why Is Mitch McConnell Blocking Bills To Protect U.S. Elections? The Last Word, MSNBC“, below:
A new bipartisan report from the Senate Intelligence Committee says Russia targeted election systems in all 50 states in 2016, more than previously known. It also issued blunt warnings about the 2020 election. Nancy Cordes reports, in the video “Mitch McConnell blocks election security bill after Mueller’s 2020 interference warning“, below:
Democrats’ next steps mentioned in the video above:
- Investigate president’s finances
- Potential ties to Russia
- Attempt to get access to White House aide emails.
Republicans in the Senate have twice in 24 hours blocked the advancement of bills aimed at strengthening election security just hours after former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III warned of the continued threat that foreign powers interfering in US elections, in the video “GOP senators block election security bills after Mueller’s warning“, below:
In addition to Robert S. Mueller’s warning, the FBI Director Christopher Wray also had similar warning in the video above.
Voters in Kentucky, given what had happened, what will you do about Mitch McConnell in order to protect our election and democracy from the Russia invasion?
If our elected officials are undermining the American democracy, shouldn’t we, the American public, raise our voices at various Town Hall meetings and coming out on the streets, demanding a secure election and preventing the corrupt officials from taking offices? It is time.
It is sad to see the GOP sacrificing our ideal of self-rule in favor of maintaining party advantage. This is not what our America represents. If the American public would not care enough about our system of democracy, we will no longer have our freedom nor democracy. This is the inflection point in our American history. It will depend on what the American people will do.
Here is the response from Kentucky voters: Sam sits down with one of the only people brave enough to challenge Mitch McConnell for re-election – Amy McGrath! Meanwhile, Allana Harkin takes the temperature of Kentucky voters for the 2020 senate election, in the video “Kentucky Wants to Break Up with Mitch McConnell, Full Frontal on TBS“, below:
