Trump, McConnell, and Blackburn— This Week’s Tridefector

Senate Majority Reaper Mitch McConnell’s blocking of the Bill to secure our elections is treasonous, in my opinion.

Now we have reports of McConnell taking money from voting machine lobbyists. (See link below.)

Are you numb yet? I’m getting numb.

With this week’s surprising vote, we learned that Mitch has a new ally in Congress.

Senator Marsha Blackburn (R/TN), blocked a bill that would have made it a legal requirement to inform the FBI of offers of interference by foreign adversaries.

Why would anyone block that? Marsha’s ties to Russia go back to her days as an attorney, when she hung with the NRA befriending Maria Butina, who is currently serving time for espionage. (See three links below.)

So, what’s wrong with Marsha Blackburn blocking legislation that might discourage Russian interference, or intrusion by any hostile foreign entity, in our democracy?

And, since I’m asking questions, why shouldn’t Donald Trump welcome Russia’s help with his reelection?

Wouldn’t all this be illegal if it were wrong?


Marsha wants you to call her.
