Senate Republicans block bill requiring campaigns to report foreign election help to FBI

If Donald Trump wants to take election help from foreign governments and not inform the FBI, well, Senate Republicans are just fine with that. Democratic Sen. Mark Warner tried to get unanimous consent on a bill requiring campaigns to report such offers to the FBI, but Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn wasn’t having it, and blocked the bill.

“We are all for free and fair and honest elections,” claimed Blackburn. But “These reporting requirements are overbroad. Presidential campaigns would have to worry about disclosure at a variety of levels. So many different levels.”

Sort of like how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wouldn’t admit to wanting Russia to interfere in the 2020 elections, but he’s blocking any efforts to stop it from doing so.

Isn’t it amazing the number of things Republicans are all for right up until it would get Donald Trump in trouble or jeopardize a Republican win? Truly mindblowing.

This looks like treason to me. So why are we allowing them to get away with it. Never in the history of this great nation, did I expect treason being carried out in this magnitude. All we sit on our a$$ and do nothing. Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell should both be executed. Snowden did nothing compared to what this bastards have done.

Didn’t these dishonest old white men take an oath to uphold up the constitution? Didn’t republicans declare themselves constitionalists?
