On the Senate [floor], McConnell indignantly asserted, “I don’t normally take the time to respond to critics in the media when they have no clue what they’re talking about, but this modern-day McCarthyism is toxic and damaging because of the way it warps our entire public discourse. Facts matter. Details matter. History matters. And if our nation is losing the ability to debate public policy without screaming about treason — that really matters.”
My favorite part of that is how much of that screaming, especially and specifically the use of the term "treason," is coming from the Oval Office.
Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia. This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16, 2019
Adding: I found that tweet via Google. Turns out I didn't have to work that hard.
The fish rots from the head, Mitch. That's another old country saying you should become familiar with.Such a great victory in court yesterday on the Russian Hoax, the greatest political scam in the history of our Country. TREASON! Hopefully, the Attorney Generel of the United States, and all of those working with him, will find out, in great detail, what happened. NEVER AGAIN!!!!— Donald J.
