Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell publicly praised President Trump Friday, saying Trump’s tenure in office has been the best “year-and-a half in my time in the Senate” from his entire 34-year career.
McConnell was speaking at Value Voter summit in the nation’s capital when he thanked President Trump for moving the country in the right direction.
“I’m now in the 34th year in the Senate, hard to believe,” McConnell said. “This has been, if you want America to be a right of center nation, this last year-and-a-half has been the best year-and-a-half in my time in the Senate.”
“And, the reason you should know that, is look how angry the Left is. The angrier they get, the better we are doing,” he added.
“You’ve watched the fight, you’ve watched the tactics,” McConnell said. “But here is what I want to tell you, in the very near future Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court.”
BOOKER GOES BERSERK: McConnell Suggests ‘ETHICS INQUIRY’ over Cory’s ‘Unusual Behavior’
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell weighed-in on Sen. Cory Booker’s “unusual behavior” during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings this week; saying he “wouldn’t be surprised” if there was an ethics inquiry into his bizarre antics.
McConnell was speaking with radio host Hugh Hewitt when he was asked to comment on Booker’s repeated assertions that he was “breaking the rules” by intentionally leaking Kavanaugh’s confidential emails.
“When you break the Senate rules, it’s something the Ethics Committee could take a look at. And that would be up to them to decide. But it’s routinely looked at [by] the Ethics Committee,” McConnell said. “They have an obligation to look into violations of the Senate rules, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they did.”
Booker fired-back at McConnell over the possible ethics investigation, telling the leading Republican to “bring it!”
“I have really two words to say to Mitch McConnell if he wants to do ethics charges — bring it!” he said.
