Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hit back HARD after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi delivered hypocritical criticism of Republican led investigation into Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.
Last week the Senate’s Homeland Security committee voted to subpoena Blue Star Strategies, the Democratic public relations firm Burisma hired after Hunter Biden’s connection to them was revealed. Of which, Speaker Pelosi called “political retribution.”
“It is sad that the GOP Senate has meekly and weakly chosen to be complicit in the president’s desperate and dangerous political tactics. I call upon Leader McConnell to take a pause in the Senate GOP’s obstruction of meeting the needs of the American people,” said Pelosi.
This statement made Mitch McConnell chuckle. He recognized right away Pelosi’s one sided, hypocritical feelings about investigations. McConnell was asked by Fox News’ Marth McCallum how he felt about Pelosi’s statement. The Senate leader pointed out Pelosi’s lengthy and deranged impeachment investigation of President Trump earlier this year.
“I’d say to the Speaker after after the impeachment, you are not in a position to be lecturing us about what the appropriate use of Senate time is,” said McConnell.
McConnell didn’t stop there though. He went on to detail why the investigation into Hunter Biden was legitimate and necessary. You can watch McConnell’s full response to Pelosi in the video below. It’s a good one!
