Conservative radio’s Mark Levin — affectionately dubbed “The Great One” by colleagues and fans alike — blasted Sen. Mitch McConnell and his fellow GOP leaders, characterizing them as RINOs, or Republicans-In-Name-Only, whose time to leave office had come.
Mr. McConnell, especially, invoked Mr. Levin’s ire for what he said was an undermining of Republicans in the House who wanted to pass a “clean” bill that would have only included $1 billion in funding for the International Monetary Fund for Ukraine aid — and not “extraneous” funding measures, The Associated Press reported.
“[McConnell] delivered more than half of the Republican conference into the hands of Harry Reid and the Democrats, enabling them to gain leverage over the GOP-controlled House and pass this IMF crap,” Mr. Levin said, during a recent broadcast. “McConnell was pressing Republican senators to join Harry Reid on this vote.”
“He’s not a conservative,” Mr. Levin said, AP reported. “He’s an operator.”
