Former Clinton Aide Tries to Justify Heckling Mitch McConnell. Here’s His Excuse.

There’s no justifiable excuse for this behavior.

Philippe Reines, a former aide to Hillary Clinton, attempted to justify heckling Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a restaurant by citing the fact that he kept Merrick Garland off of the Supreme Court.

McConnell and his wife were out having dinner in Louisville’s Havana Rumba Friday evening when their meal was interrupted by protesters, a scene that has become all too familiar in recent days.

“Mitch McConnell is a pretty stoic guy. Just the notion, when you said Mitch McConnell and TMZ I had to do a double take. I think he’s sitting there and he’s thinking a couple things, first of all, ‘I have capital police that are ten feet away,’ two, he’s thinking, ‘I got my wife Elaine who is better than the capitol police,’ three, he’s thinking, ‘Merrick Garland verse my leftovers,’” Reines said during an appearance on MSNBC Sunday morning.

“He’s getting away with murder and net/net I think he thinks this is the worst he gets that’s fine, but this is such a made-up problem. Again, it is like professor Butler said, it is the first Amendment and there is a difference and it goes to something Dr. Greer said, people are doing this because there is no other opportunity or no other oversight,” he continued.

“The Republican Congress has basically pledged fealty to Donald Trump. People are doing these things because it’s all that’s left. What are they doing? They’re denying Sarah Sanders her supper,” Reines stated. “They’re serenading Kirstjen Nielsen in a Mexican restaurant. They’re heckling Stephen Miller just for being Stephen Miller.”

What happened to McConnell is just the latest in a string of incidents involving protesters who have interrupted or harassed a conservative politician in public.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife were driven from a restaurant, as was White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. It’s a sleazy, disrespectful tactic, but that hasn’t stopped these folks from employing it.

For McConnell, this is the third time it’s happened, which has got to be getting very old right about now.

Man Arrested for Rape Is Let Out of Jail Over COVID-19, Then Murders the Woman He Raped

Still want to let criminals out?

Democrat policies made this unfortunate story possible. Liberal “leaders” won’t take any of the blame, though. Sure, the only person to commit a criminal act was Ibrahim Bouaichi, but he shouldn’t have been released from jail in the first place. Are Dems still cool with freeing bad people? From TDW: A Maryland man being held in a Virginia prison on rape charges was released over coronavirus concerns, then allegedly murdered his accuser, according to police. Police tracked down and found Ibrahim Bouaichi, 33, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Wednesday. Authorities sought Bouaichi in connection with the death of Karla Dominguez, who had accused Bouaichi of rape and testified against him in October, according to The Washington Post. CONTINUED: When police located Bouaichi, he fled in his car until he crashed. Police moving to arrest him found that he had apparently shot himself. Bouaichi remained in critical condition on Thursday. Partly on Dominguez’s testimony, Bouaichi was indicted on five felony charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction, and burglary. Bouaichi was held without bail in an Alexandria prison facility until April 9, when Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins ordered his release on a $25,000 bond.

Rashida Tlaib Forced to Repay Campaign Nearly $11,000 for Illegal Disbursements to Herself

Busted.

If Rashida Tlaib was a Republican and got caught illegal distributing funds from a campaign, there would be calls for her immediate resignation. But she’s a Democrat – so it’s all good! From Fox News: Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been ordered to repay $10,800 to her campaign committee to account for the salary she had paid herself from her campaign coffers after she had been elected to Congress in 2018. The bipartisan House Ethics Committee found the Michigan Democrat’s violation “was one of bad timing and not ill intent.” The committee ordered her to pay $10,800 of the $17,500 she received from her campaign in 2018. Congressional candidates are allowed to draw paychecks from their campaigns, but payments are only allowed during an active candidacy. Continued: “The committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue,” the committee wrote Friday. “Indeed, during her campaign, Representative Tlaib received a conservative amount of campaign funds, well below the legal threshold for the maximum amount of salary she was eligible to receive; these payments allowed her to forego her salary from her full-time employment so that she could fully participate in campaign activities.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1245428215751065602?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245428215751065602&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F04%2F01%2Frep-rashida-tlaib-reminds-us-the-covid-19-pandemic-is-exposing-structural-racism-in-the-us%2F REACTIONS:
