Now You Tell Us


Bill Nelson was telling the truth:

Gov. Ron DeSantis met with the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security last Friday to discuss the revelation in Robert Mueller’s report that “at least one” Florida county had its election information accessed by Russian hackers in 2016.

DeSantis told reporters Tuesday that he had been briefed on that breach — which he said actually happened in two counties in Florida — but that he couldn’t share which counties had been the target.

“I’m not allowed to name the counties. I signed a (non)disclosure agreement,” DeSantis said, emphasizing that he “would be willing to name it” but “they asked me to sign it so I’m going to respect their wishes.”

Which didn’t stop him from getting called a liar not only by Republicans — who are just doing their jobs — but by the nation’s factchuckers, who in a sense are doing theirs:

As Roy says, it’s tempting to say that Obama should have called out McConnell for his traitorous actions in 2016, but it’s hard to argue with his assumption that it would have been counterproductive given the media environment.
