House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday slammed “Moscow Mitch” — a derisive nickname for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — for blocking bills aimed at preventing gun violence and foreign election interference.

“We all want to invest in building our democracy and saving it from any enemies foreign and domestic, so we’ve sent our legislation to the Senate,” Pelosi said at an Illinois Democrats’ “Democrat Day” event in Springfield. “‘Moscow Mitch’ says that he is the ‘Grim Reaper” … that he’s going to bury all this legislation. Well, we have news for him. All this legislation is alive and well in the general public.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Mueller warned that Russia was already preparing to interfere in the 2020 election “as we sit here,” calling the Kremlin’s efforts “the new normal.” Critics of McConnell have been using the nickname “Moscow Mitch” to suggest that he is giving cover to Russian President Vladimir Putin. McConnell has expressed anger about the nickname, comparing the attacks to “modern-day McCarthyism.”

Pelosi slams McConnell as “Moscow Mitch” beginning at about the 11-minute mark in the following video.
