  • Moscow Mitch Strikes Again

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartandhp

    I wonder why McConnell and Trump are so taken with the Russians? It most certainly is not in the best interests of the United States.

    'In January, as the Senate debated whether to permit the Trump administration to lift sanctions on Russia’s largest aluminum producer, two men with millions of dollars riding on the outcome met for dinner at a restaurant in Zurich.'


    'On one side of the table sat the head of sales for Rusal, the Russian aluminum producer that would benefit most immediately from a favorable Senate vote. The U.S. government had sanctioned Rusal as part of a campaign to punish Russia for “malign activity around the globe,” including attempts to sway the 2016 presidential election.'



    'On the other side sat Craig Bouchard, an American entrepreneur who had gained favor with officials in Kentucky, the home state of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Bouchard was trying to build the first new aluminum-rolling mill in the United States in nearly four decades, in a corner of northeastern Kentucky ravaged by job losses and the opioid epidemic — a project that stood to benefit enormously if Rusal were able to get involved.'
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

      It's a different subject.

        Isn't the subject Mitch in both threads?

          The subject is what McConnell is up to with the Russians.

            That is what the thread from August 4th was about; why a new thread on the same subject?

              It's on a different subject, is it not? Was the aluminum deal mentioned in the other thread?

                No, it is not a different subject, both threads are on "Moscow Mitch" dealing with the Russians.

                        It's a case of 'defend the Republican' no matter what they say or do.
