Senator Dick Durbin is always finding new lows. Here’s a low that the Democrat political lifer found back in 2005 when he compared American soldiers to Nazis.
Durbin claimed that Americans who interrogated Al Qaeda terrorists in Gitmo had committed atrocities similar to those that “have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime — Pol Pot or others.”
When Karl Rove noted that, “Al Jazeera now broadcasts the words of Senator Durbin to the Mideast, certainly putting our troops in greater danger”, Dems began shrieking that Durbin was being accused of treason.
Now here’s Dick Durbin accusing the GOP of treason.
Sen. Dick Durbin suggested Tuesday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wasn’t putting election security legislation up for a vote because Republicans benefited from Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“There are two possibilities,” Durbin said. “He really doesn’t believe it, he doesn’t think the Russians were involved in 2016. He ignores the Mueller report and our intelligence agencies or in the alternative feels the Russians were on the side of the Republicans in 2016 and just might be again in 2020.”
This is a despicable accusation based on a discredited conspiracy theory. It’s an accusation of treason by a man arguably guilty of it.
And Durbin will never be fact-checked on this or held accountable for this false accusation and false claim.
