(FOX NEWS) – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said top Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer of “trying to pull a fast one,” warning in a floor speech Wednesday that there was “no realistic path” to quickly approve larger stimulus checks for Americans contending with the coronavirus pandemic.
McConnell accused Pelosi and Schumer of attempting to “warp” President Trump’s call for $2,000 direct payments to Americans.
The majority leader said the Senate would not separate a vote on $2,000 stimulus checks from a bill backed by GOP leaders that includes the establishment of a commission to investigate election fraud and a repeal of Section 230, the measure which protects social media platforms from liability over third-party posts.
“As they’ve tried to do countless times in the past four years, Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer are trying to pull a fast one on the president and the American people,” McConnell said. “First of all, they’re hoping that everyone just forgets about election integrity and Big Tech. They’re desperate to ignore those two parts of President Trump’s request.”
