You remember Mitch McConnell, right? The guy who threatened Obama to keep him from going public with concerns about Russian interference in 2016?

This morning, he was just on the Senate floor mocking Dems for belatedly "awakening to the dangers of Russian aggression." Isn't that cute?

McConnell demands that Democrats "finally end this ‘Groundhog Day’ spectacle, and to stop endlessly re-litigating a two-and-a-half-year-old election result, and move forward for the American people."

He complained about a two-year investigation (Bill Clinton's BJ investigation went on for FOUR YEARS):

MCCONNELL: With an exhaustive investigation complete, would the country finally unify to confront the real challenges before us? Would we finally be able to move on from partisan paralysis and breathless conspiracy theorizing? Or would we remain consumed by unhinged partisanship, and keep dividing ourselves to the point that Putin and his agents need only stand on the sidelines and watch as their job is done for them?"

Chuck Schumer immediately lets him have it for "whitewashing" the obstruction evidence:

Can you help us out?
