EXPLOSIVE: Dem Blows Whistle on Liberals Behind Secret McConnell Tapes

Democratic official reveals new information about a secretly recorded meeting in Senator Mitch McConnell’s office.

Jacob Conway, who is on the committee of Kentucky’s Jefferson County Democratic Party, revealed to Megyn Kelly moments ago that members of the liberal activist group Progress Kentucky bragged to him that they had made a secret recording of a meeting held by Senator Mitch McConnell (R) without his consent.

Earlier this week, tapes were released of McConnell and his aides discussing challengers in the upcoming election, particularly actress Ashley Judd. The FBI is now investigating the incident.

According to Conway, Progress Kentucky’s Sean Riley and Curtis Morrison were in the hallway of McConnell’s campaign headquarters after an event ended, when they overheard a conversation they considered offensive, and decided to record it. Conway said that to call it a “Watergate-style bugging,” as McConnell’s office did, was “overdramatic.” “The only reason that I came forward with what I knew was I was trying to protect the Democratic party,” Conway said.
