WASHINGTON – House Republicans received an email Monday from a White House aide showing a graphic of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, saying it was sent at the request of President Donald Trump.
According to the two House Republicans who received the emails, Molly was special assistant to the president of Molly A. Michael and the Oval Office operations coordinator.
A graphic in the email was obtained by NBC News, and it showed McConnell’s turnout time since May 2020, against her 2020 Democratic challenger Amy McGrath. It was suggested that McConnell was re-elected due to Trump.
It said, “Sadly, Mitch forgot. He was the first person from the ship!”
The email suggested that Trump is good for the Republican Party and leading the re-election of GOP members. This comes as congressional Republicans face pressure to defend the president and challenge the election results.
The email was sent after a meeting between the president and House Republicans on Monday about a “fight back” against unfounded claims of voter fraud.
Meanwhile, McConnell recognized Biden’s election victory and called him President-Elect last Tuesday after his victory was confirmed by Electoral College.
Requests for comment from McConnell’s office and the White House were not immediately returned.
