Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has declared “case closed” on the special counsel’s finding of no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. He also slammed the left for not moving on.
During a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday, McConnell said Democrats are angry the facts disappointed them and angry the legal system will not “magically undo” the 2016 election for them. He also suggested Democrats are channeling “partisan anger” at Attorney General William Barr for “no legitimate reason,” and called him a convenient target.
McConnell then outlined what he called an “outrage industrial complex” on the left and in the media.
“There’s this outrage industrial complex…that spans from Capitol press conferences to cable news, they’re grieving…that the national crisis they spent two-years wishing for did not materialize, but for the rest of the country — this is good news,” he stated.
McConnell also reminded his liberal colleagues there are serious issues the American people want Congress to tackle.
