MAGA Operatives Go After McConnell For Opposing Disgraced Pro-Trump Candidate’s Run For Senate

Pro-Trump GOP operatives are attacking Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, alleging the Kentucky Republican is waging a “smear campaign” against disgraced former Gov. Eric Greitens, a pro-Trump U.S. Senate candidate for the state of Missouri.

Donald Trump Jr.’s fiancé Kimberly Guilfoyle slammed the GOP leader for making what she calls “a backdoor deal to try and have [Greitens] REMOVED.”

“[McConnell has] gone to unimaginable lengths to keep a MAGA warrior like Eric from winning the 1 SEAT we need to take back the 50-50 Senate. He even launched a smear campaign targeting Eric’s children. When the RINO establishment employs the exact same tactics as the radical Left,” Guilfoyle said. “Enough is enough!”

Greitens is viewed by many Republicans as the candidate most likely to jeopardize a GOP-held Senate seat. Yet he’s leading in primary polls in Missouri. He’s accused of subjecting his ex-wife, Sheena Greitens, and their kids to physical abuse during their time together. Those abuse allegations were first leveled back in April 2020, shortly after the couple divorced.

The former governor has adamantly denied his ex-wife’s account, arguing that if he had been abusive, the two would not have arranged a divorce settlement granting him joint physical custody of the children. Greitens has also alleged that his ex-wife’s allegations, which were outlined in a signed affidavit, are part of a coordinated smear campaign waged by McConnell and GOP operative Karl Rove.
