He added, “My faith is in the people of this country. And though you’re right to question the motives of Mitch McConnell who in 2016 was warned about what the Russians were doing to our democracy chose politics and political expediency over this country, our constitution and our democracy.

Because they understand that the alternative is to set a precedent where some people are really above the law in this country.
