McConnell and Burr Led the Charge Against Ratcliffe After Trump Chose Him to Replace Coats – Blew Off His Phone Calls (VIDEO)
Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo said on Sunday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr led the charge against Trump’s choice for DNI, GOP Rep. John Ratcliffe.
Maria Bartiromo told former Congressman Trey Gowdy on Sunday that her sources told her that McConnell and Burr blew off Ratcliffe after Trump nominated him to be the next Director of National Intelligence.
“Here’s what my sources are telling me — I am hearing that Mitch McConnell and Richard Burr basically blew him off. He called them to have a meeting with them and he said ‘oh no no no we’re busy, we have the budget, we can’t do it.” Bartiromo told Gowdy on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
Bartiromo the said that the GOP leaders felt they couldn’t get RINO Senator Susan Collins (ME) on board.
“Susan Collins said that Ratcliffe was ‘awfully rough on Mueller'” Bartiromo said.
The truth is that Trump chose John Ratcliffe to replace Dan Coats before the Mueller hearing.
Furthermore, Ratcliffe was doing his job when he grilled Mueller and blasted him for turning the Constitution upside down by smearing Trump, an innocent man who has never been convicted of a crime.
It was all hands on deck after Trump announced he would be nominating Ratcliffe to replace Coats — the Democrat-media complex immediately went into overdrive to attack Ratcliffe, a former US Attorney who served in the House on several Committees for years.
Trump and Ratcliffe decided together to withdraw his name from consideration on Friday and the Deep Staters immediately came out and called Trump to nominate Brennan’s BFF Sue Gordon to take over for Coats.
