Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) suggested that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “wasn’t putting election security legislation up for a vote because Republicans benefited from Russian interference in the 2016 election,” Politico reports.
Said Durbin: “There are two possibilities. 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.”
Durbin added that he hopes that “that latter possibility is so remote as to being impossible.”
