Speaker Nancy Pelosi tied Mitch McConnell to Trump, Russia, and Saudi Arabia as she told journalists to follow the money.
Pelosi Ties Mitch McConnell To Trump and Russia
Speaker Pelosi said during her weekly press conference, “What is it about Mitch Mcconnell and the Republicans in Congress that they do not want to respond to what’s so popular across the board in our country? To take it back to your question. What is it about the Republicans in Congress? How much more can they bear of the president’s unethical behavior? That they think they’re honoring their oath of office. I believe these are all connected. I think it’s all about money. Connect the dots in all of this. It’s all about money. Look at what the president is doing in terms of Saudi Arabia and the sale of nuclear technology as well as planes to Saudi Arabia. Follow the money. Who benefits from that? Declare a national emergency that he can by-pass congress in terms of those sales. By-pass the law in terms of transferring of nuclear technology to a country. Follow the money.”
Nancy Pelosi tells America to follow the money
The evidence is in plain sight that the Republican behavior is all about money. The Russians gave Mitch McConnell a $200 million investment in Kentucky just before his reelection campaign as a thank you for blocking Democrats from keeping sanctions in place on an oligarch. When the Republicans had total control of the federal government, they didn’t do anything with it, outside of passing tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations. It isn’t about power or wanting to carry out a specific agenda.
The Russia/foreign government problem isn’t limited to Trump. These foreign have infiltrated the Republican Party.
Pelosi was correct. Follow the money and you will find a corrupt Republican Party that is working against the interests of the American people.
