Wednesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin called for Senator Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to step down as Senate majority leader and be investigated for corruption.
Levin cited a New York Post article detailing new corruption allegations made against McConnell and his wife, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao.
The story refers to a forthcoming book by “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer. “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends” details how the majority leader and his wife softened their approaches to China over the years due to Chinese business interests. The book claims McConnell and his wife grew rich selling political power.
Levin called the allegations “stunning” and “absolutely shocking and disgusting.”
“Mitch McConnell should be removed for all the reasons I’ve said before, but especially now, as majority leader,” Levin said. “And there ought to be an ethics investigation looking into his background. And I am damn serious about it.”
