  1. He’s called Moscow Mitch for a reason.

    Moscow Mitch is a snake. I hope the people of Kentucky know about this before they vote.

    • @leftinthirdgrade I moved from NY to KY, and love the state, but hate that these folks are still in the bottom of the country in most things…after 33 years of Mitch. They love Fed programs but hate the Dems – go figure….

      *** Highest poverty rates (46th to 50th): Kentucky, West Virginia, New Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi.
      *** Most dependent on federal aid — i.e., “socialism” (46th to 50th): Kentucky, Arizona, New Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi.

      *** Most polluted (46th to 50th): Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana.

      Forget voting our FBI must arrest the traitor McConnell for espionage!

      @eric oxner you need to go to writing a classes to upgrade you writing skills. You have many spelling and grammatical errors. Your overall sentiments are spot on, so I know you are intelligent and capable of critical thinking.

    • @Just Only John that could be applied to the entire base and not just to those from Kentucky

    • REPUBLICANS LOVE THERE RUSSIAN MEDELLING

  3. Moscow Mitch being paid for his job as a Russian spy doing their job to ruin enemy country economy, government, people.

    • Amy McGrath for Kentucky 2020

    • @John Wagn I’m not living in Kentucky but she got my vote

    • ken878 me either Ken but I put the Amy McGrath word out to do my bit against treasonous Moscow Mitch

    • ken878 Once he has headed down this road, carrying water for the Russians for the favor of a business deal and the support for the Trump election and re-election, he cannot retreat from having sold his political soul. He must be opposed by a strong candidate in KY who can mobilize the the Kentucky gras roots.

    Moscow Mitch, Leningrad Lindsey and Drezna Donald walk into a bar……..

  5. So Kentucky is part of Russia. Since they are no longer Americans, Moscow Mitch should not be in the Senate. We should only have 98 Senators.

    Get registered to vote, verify your voter registration and VOTE.

  7. Republicans are complicit in the Russian interference- vote them out!

  8. Keep the pressure on Moscow Mitch, he needs to gtfo!!!!

  9. Putin’s strategic intentions are easier for him to achieve when the president and the Senate Majority leader have been compromised with Russian money.

    • Congressional members should have annual tax review. Disclosure needs to be mandatory for what companies they, their family, former married spouses or SO, and close friends or associates (before joining Congress) are involved in the duration of their career and maybe six-12 months after leaving or retiring from Congress. If legislation is not in the best interest of the public and for personal gain, it should be a felony with jail time. It seems obvious but after the Republican Party appears more compromised it’s hard not to wonder.

    • The entire GOP needs to be hung for Treason. Chuck and Nancy have a lot of explaining to do regarding the bipartisan obsession. Is it so that they can claim to be powerless when they are not?

    Moscow Mitch. It all comes back to him. It’s blood money as far as I’m concerned.

  11. Russia has always exercised influence operations around the world though corrupt politicians and government officials. Moscow Mitch is one of the most corrupt. Getting angry yet?

  12. timeforchange | August 15, 2019 at 3:36 AM | Reply

    This is why the nickname “Moscow Mitch” is appropriate. He will end his career being known as Moscow Mitch!

    • DVonne Bowman | August 15, 2019 at 5:07 AM | Reply

      DON’T FORGET THE OTHER NICKNAME, CHINA COKE MITCH, FATHER-IN-LAW GOT BIG MONEY AND POWER IN CHINA????

    • He will not only end his career with that name but go down in the history books with that name. He will be forever associated with corruption and treason.

    • I hope he wins his seat as I plan to campaign for him. To each his own. I would love to see Nadler gone although I am a Democrat

  13. Moscow Mitch put a for sale sign on that Kentucky town. Sure they’ll have jobs but now they live under the thumb of a Russian oligarch. Step out of line and next thing they know the entire town’s economy is in a chokehold. At what cost Moscow Mitch, at what cost.

  14. Moscow Mitch and his wife are crooks. Plus, his bumpkin self has got to go.

  15. Trumps Dantichrist | August 15, 2019 at 3:51 AM | Reply

    Manafort committed treason and that is the long and short of it!

  16. The most corrupt administration in Modern History

  17. Pascale Dominique | August 15, 2019 at 4:00 AM | Reply

    Review the definition of traitor…and then think on Moscow Mitch

  18. The Russians done the same in the UK, we now have a broken UK and brexit. The greedy taking Russian money to wreck democracy.

  19. Moscow Mitch is a traitor to the country.

  20. Is there any doubt whatsoever now that McConnell completely, 100% deserves the moniker “Moscow Mitch”?
