McConnell is a snake.
On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell chose to issue a statement regarding Finland’s induction into NATO, refraining from commenting on the detention of former President Donald Trump. He did not speak on the matter whatsoever.
According to Newsweek, Former President Donald Trump turned himself in to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office following an indictment by a grand jury. The charges were the result of an extensive investigation conducted by the office and led by District Attorney Alvin Bragg, focused on Trump’s alleged involvement in covering up hush money payments made in 2016 to adult film star Stormy Daniels, in order to keep her quiet about their affair in 2006.
Former President Trump has consistently denied any wrongdoing and maintains that the alleged affair with Stormy Daniels never took place. Nevertheless, this marks the first time in United States history that a former president has faced such an indictment.
Despite support from elected Republicans such as Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, former President Trump’s indictment has yet to receive an official response from one of the most influential members of the party, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Instead of addressing Trump’s situation, the Kentucky Senator chose to focus on Finland’s recent admission into NATO on Tuesday.
McConnell completely ignored Trump’s legal problems and said in a statement, “The Republic of Finland’s accession into NATO is outstanding news that further strengthens what is already the most successful alliance in the history of the human race. I am happy to welcome Finland to this trans-Atlantic Alliance and I congratulate the Finnish people, President Niinistö, and NATO Secretary General [Jens] Stoltenberg on this historic occasion.”
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 and the ensuing conflict has raised concerns among neighboring countries in Europe, prompting Finland to join NATO. This move strengthens Finland’s alliances with Western nations, including the U.S. and the United Kingdom, and serves as a countermeasure to Russia’s political objectives.
