Scarborough Blasts ‘Trump’s Chump’ Mitch McConnell for Call to End Mueller Probe: You’re ‘Humiliating Yourself’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) recently lamented the fact that the Special Counsel’s probe has gone on forever.

“What I think about the Mueller investigation is, they ought to wrap it up. It’s gone on seemingly forever and I don’t know how much more they think they can find out,” McConnell said during an interview with Behind Closed Doors, a Washington Examiner podcast.

McConnell added, “If the IG is through, why can’t the Mueller investigation finally wrap up?”

In response, Morning Joe‘s Joe Scarborough called him out on his hypocrisy.

“Hey Mitch, Whitewater lasted almost 10 times as long and you never complained once about that,” Scarborough tweeted out.

He then wrote this: “If you’re going to keep humiliating yourself by playing Trump’s chump, maybe you’re the one who should ‘wrap it up.’”

Trump supporters have repeatedly called for the Russian probe to end in light of the IG’s findings.

“If this was in a court of law they would throw this case out. I think the Mueller investigation has got to stop,” House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) recently said on Fox and Friends.

President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani has also weighed in, also telling Fox and Friends, “They should end it. I mean, the IG report basically tells you that both prongs of the Mueller investigation are either corrupt or answered.”
