Mitch McConnell

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding the crisis in Ukraine:

“Last week’s military intervention by Russian forces into Crimea makes clear that President Vladimir Putin is determined to maintain the Russian sphere of influence there, and at a cost to his country.

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding the nomination of Debo Adegbile to be an Assistant Attorney General:
