Mitch McConnell Said to be Pleased About Trump Impeachment Efforts

Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman  1 hr ago

Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, has told associates that he believes President Trump committed impeachable offenses and that he is pleased that Democrats are moving to impeach him, believing that it will make it easier to purge him from the party, according to people familiar with his thinking. The House is voting on Wednesday to formally charge Mr. Trump with inciting violence against the country.

At the same time, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the minority leader and one of Mr. Trump’s most steadfast allies in Congress, has asked other Republicans whether he should call on Mr. Trump to resign in the aftermath of the riot at the Capitol last week, according to three Republican officials briefed on the conversations.

While Mr. McCarthy has said he is personally opposed to impeachment, he and other party leaders have decided not to formally lobby Republicans to vote “no,” and an aide to Mr. McCarthy said he was open to a measure censuring Mr. Trump for his conduct. In private, Mr. McCarthy reached out to a leading House Democrat to see if the chamber would be willing to pursue a censure vote, though Speaker Nancy Pelosi has ruled it out.

May have been the straw after the straw...

Mitch got his judges and tax cuts...

Blames Trump for losing the Senate and the Whitehouse... which will cost him at least the latter.

 

So cutting The Donald loose... same as Vlad... was already in the cards.

Reporting is saying Mitch has not taken a call from the White House in weeks.

It's a level of denial of reality I haven't seen in a long time... Cal is enjoying the band music on the stern of the SS Trump, and is going right down to the bottom along with him... He hasn't noticed the rats are abandoning ship even as we speak... 

I'll put the Vegas over\under odds on the number of Republican House members who will vote to Impeach this loser at 30.

Good one...

Certainly you can spare 2minutes... might keep you from starting three or four new threads though.

U.S. Senate Republican leader McConnell says Trump 'provoked' Jan. 6 riot

By Reuters Staff

2 Min Read

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday accused President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican, of provoking the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

“The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people,” McConnell said in a speech on the Senate floor.

The U.S. House of Representatives last Wednesday impeached Trump for a second time. The Senate has yet to schedule a trial to determine Trump’s guilt or innocence.

McConnell last week said he would listen to the arguments presented during the Senate trial before deciding how to vote on the impeachment charge of inciting an insurrection that resulted in the siege of the Capitol.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, who is poised to become Senate majority leader in coming days, said in a Senate speech that Trump “is a threat to our constitutional order whether he is in or out of office.”

Trump’s term as president ends on Wednesday when President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in.

Schumer added that if Trump is convicted, the Senate would then vote on barring him from running again for president.

Trump supporters attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6, delaying certification of Biden’s November election victory by several hours, forcing lawmakers to seek safety, and resulting in the death of five people, including a Capitol Police officer.

It's unconstitutional.  He will be out of office.
