Reports that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked two bills aimed at helping to secure America's election process from Russian interference infuriated Twitter commenters with his action -- or inaction -- coming right after ex-special counsel  Robert Mueller testified that the Kremlin will seek to interfere just as they did in 2016.


The Senate majority leader blocked two election security bills twice this week and commenters were quick to note that the Republican leader also prevented the Obama administration from warning Americans about Russian meddling in 2016.

With the 2020 election right around the corner, McConnell's decision to look the other way had one Twitter user calling him "Putin's other puppet" -- a reference to a nickname aimed at Donald Trump who was helped in his 2016 presidential run by Vladimir Putin.
