Nothing To See Just More Republican Lies – ‘Mitch McConnell ignoring cabinet confirmation procedure he demanded in 2009’

Amazing. Dated in Feburary, 2009, McConnell insists that the FBI and Ethics letters are completed. Financial disclosures and tax returns, committee questionaires completed. 

The corruption is going to be on a scale we have never seen in this country because Republicans will “plow ahead” rather then vet the appointments.

Just like they didn’t vet Trump……….

‘Letter shows he demanded full financial disclosures before hearings’.
‘The Republican-controlled U.S. Senate plans to rush forward this week with confirmation hearings for many of Donald Trumps nominees for cabinet and other key executive positions. Though many of the picks have not yet completed the customarily required ethics clearances and background checks, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has shown no willingness to delay’.

“They’ve made pretty clear they intend to slow down and resist and that doesnt provide a lot of incentive or demonstrate good faith to negotiate changes. So I think were going to just be plowing ahead” his deputy, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) told Politico’.

‘But back in 2009, McConnell took the exact opposite view’.

‘A letter to then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), posted on Twitter by Citizens for Responsible Ethics in Washington shows he demanded that financial disclosures must be complete before any confirmation hearings be scheduled’.

  1. McConnell counts on people not remembering. I have also seen he and John Boehner say on video that climate change is real and man-influenced back in 2008. They seem to have forgotten that taping.

    • Not as much as not remembering, but on the fact that the Republican voters don’t really care about ethics and conflicts of interest of the Republican politicians, they only care if Democrats are subjected to these reviews.
