U.S. Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul of Kentucky have joined a growing list of lawmakers who have had their private information made public. The information leaks come as both lawmakers report increasing bouts of threat and intimidation.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell calls it an "absurdity" that the U.S. imports hemp but puts severe restrictions on American production. The Kentucky Republican is looking to change that by legalizing the crop in the next federal farm bill.
After the announcement of the retirement of the U.S. Supreme Court’s swing-voting Justice Anthony Kennedy, Mitch McConnell told a gathering of Kentucky Republicans that this has been “the best” year-and-a-half for conservatives in recent history.
