Far Left Protester Throws Russian Flags at President Trump

Published

on

A protester was arrested on Tuesday for posing as journalist and throwing Russian flags at President Trump as he arrived at the Senate GOP lunch.

Ryan Clayton was wearing a suit and posing as a member of the press pool when he began screaming that “Trump is treason” and threw a handful of small flags at the president as he was walking alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

When asked about the incident, McConnell told reporters that he had not even noticed it happening.

“You guys were hollering so loud frankly I didn’t even notice it,” the Senate Majority Leader told reporters who were gathered.

In July, Clayton was also apprehended in a Senate office building after throwing Russian flags at Jared Kushner.

Clayton is a member of Bob Creamer’s group “Americans Take Action.” Someone from the same group was previously kicked out of CPAC for handing out Russian flags with Trump’s name on them to members of the crowd.

Shortly after the incident, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe posted a video of Clayton following and screaming at one of his young female undercover reporters and attempting to enter the cab she was taking to get away from him.

It is unclear who signed Clayton in to the area, allowing him to gain such close access to Trump for this stunt.

Mitch McConnell Preparing Exit Strategies, Potential Successors in Advance of Possible Retirement

Will Mitch retire?

Published

on

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly created a shortlist of potential successors, with the establishment Republican considering a possible retirement before his term ends. McConnell was reelected to another Senate term in 2020, and the Intercept broke the news of his retirement considerations on Thursday.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is reportedly McConnell’s first pick for his successor. Former UN Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams are also possible replacements. McConnell, 79, has served as a Kentucky Senator since 1985.

Kentucky law currently would allow Governor Andy Beshear- a Democrat- to appoint McConnell’s successor if he retired. However, McConnell is pushing for the Republican state legislature to pass reforms allowing them to select replacements for Senators who have resigned. McConnell’s quiet boosting of legislative reforms to appoint interim Senators led to the reports of his potential retirement, although it’s unclear when he plans to leave the picture.

McConnell largely alienated the Republican Party with a forceful denunciation of former President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment trial targeting the President, although he declined to vote to convict the President on the basis of legality. A Republican candidate in the mold of McConnell’s 20th century style would have a difficult time winning a Kentucky GOP primary, and McConnell’s appointed pick may start off in such an election with a considerable handicap. In addition, the legacy Senator remains popular in Kentucky, although at least one county party censured him for his betrayal of Trump in January.
