Claire McCaskill on McConnell's "Scorched Earth" Threat: "He's The One Who Broke The Senate"

|

As the filibuster fight in the Senate drags on, Minority Leader McConnell is threatening Democrats with a scorched earth Senate.' Former Sen. Claire McCaskill joined MSNBC's Brian Williams on Tuesday night to tell McConnell: You are the one who "broke the Senate."

"He is the one who used the rules in a way they were never intended to be used, and he has done it with gleeful abandon again and again and again."


"Regular order is gone, there is no date, there is no amendment, it is a mere shadow of what it used to be," she said. "He's bragging here that they would be the ultimate obstructionists... That's not going to win the day for the Republican Party. The bottom line is a lot of this is an empty threat."
