Mitch McConnell denies telling Senate Republicans that partnership with Freedomworks, Senate Conservative Fund was traitorous

Radio talk show host Glenn Beck stated on his show Tuesday that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell addressed Senate Republicans warning them against partnering with Freedomworks and the Senate Conservative Fund.

Mitch-McConnell_DonkeyHoteyBeck stated that he was contacted by someone who is not on his “usual list of friends” and who, if he gave you the name, you would probably not think “he’s on our side.”

During a private, off-the-record meeting of Republican senators that reportedly went far beyond politics as usual, and coincide with reports of fierce infighting within the GOP. 

“This guy is just disgusted by what happened, and is one of those guys who was sitting in this meeting, not saying anything, but watching everybody and — show me your friends and I’ll show you your future,” Beck remarked.  “[Thinking], ‘I think my friends are not friends of the republic. Not friends of freedom of speech.’”

“As they are all standing in there, they are told in not so many words, that they are on the wrong side. That these people have been here for a very long time, and you new senators come in and you think you know it all.  And if anyone is working with the Senate Conservatives Fund or FreedomWorks, you’re a traitor.”

Beck’s did clarify on the actual word used.

“The actual word used was not ‘traitor,’” Beck said clearly. “They couldn’t remember the actual word, they said, but that’s what everybody heard, and that’s what set this guy off. Because he was like, ‘Yeah, you put ‘em in their place.’ And then when he heard the word, and he doesn’t remember what it was, but he translated it as ‘traitor,’ and he was like, ‘Whoa, that’s a little strong.’”

A spokesman for Senator Mitch McConnell told TheBlaze: “The anonymous claim is false. He neither said nor insinuated that.”

The Blaze also publishted:

Matt Hoskins, executive director of the Senate Conservatives Fund, responded to Beck’s story in a statement: “We’re extremely grateful for the support Glenn and his listeners have shown us today. We’re especially thankful that someone is finally exposing how hostile Mitch McConnell is to conservatives in this country.”

“Mitch McConnell thinks our conservative supporters are traitors, but they’re not the ones quietly cutting deals with Harry Reid and Barack Obama to increase the debt limit, to raise taxes on Americans, and to fund Obamacare,” the statement continues. “Mitch McConnell has betrayed the voters in his own party and trampled over our nation’s founding principles. It’s time for the conservative grassroots to rise up and remove politicians like Mitch McConnell from office. This won’t be easy, but our country is blessed to have leaders like Glenn Beck who aren’t afraid to stand up to the Republican establishment. He’s doing his part and we will do ours. SCF will do everything in its power to help the grassroots support candidates who believe in the Constitution and will fight for the principles of freedom that make America great. If we work together, we can win this battle and take our country back.”
