Katie Porter Exposes Mitch McConnell’s Stimulus Shenanigans

She may have only begun serving in the House in 2019, but Katie Porter has already become well known. The Harvard Law School graduate has frequently gone viral for her clever take-downs of congressional witnesses.

Americans on both sides of the aisle are waiting on some kind of stimulus from the government. On Tuesday night, Porter promised to expose the person delaying the stimulus. And she pointed her finger squarely at Mitch McConnell.

The California Congresswoman took to Twitter, writing, “When I came to Congress, I knew I had a responsibility to pull back the curtain for the American people and expose corruption in real time. So, I’m filling you in on Senator McConnell’s attempts over the last 8 days to tank a *bipartisan* COVID relief bill.”

She continued, “You may have heard that Democrats and Republicans have agreed upon spending $900 billion to fund another round of small business loans, support hospitals and essential workers, and help the 10 million people who lost their jobs through no fault of their own.”

Porter then concluded, “The same McConnell who said that President Trump is “100% within his rights” to pursue baseless lawsuits alleging election fraud is now refusing to pass urgently-needed relief unless it strips those same rights from the most vulnerable among us. This must be exposed.”
