NYT: McConnell ‘Pleased’ Democrats Impeaching Trump

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told Republicans that President Trump committed impeachable offenses and that he favors impeachment.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that McConnell told colleagues that he is in favor of Democrats attempt to impeach the president in hopes that it will put distance between the GOP and Trump – a move not likely to please the 74 million people who voted for the president in the 2020 election.

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.

Earlier, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin said that the Senate did not have the votes to convict President Trump and called the attempt “ill-advised.”

  1. If President Trumps speech was so inflammatory, why haven’t any news outlets been playing it! Why don’t they have a clip of President Trump calling for a riot? Because it doesn’t exist. That’s why. Not even CNN has played it……

  2. Mitch, sounds like your household is in lockstep over impeaching Trump. You’re obviously an old school elitist Republican more interested in style and decorum than in accomplishments in the foreign policy and domestic arenas. Oh, I’m not forgetting that “Orange Man Bad!” I guess it is easy to allow yourself to go for the jugular when the target is a man who is easy to find fault with. On a personal level, I find the President to be reprehensible, but I voted for him twice! Why, Mitch? Because, I don’t plan on having dinner with him, or even playing golf with him. I simply want him to run the country and get things done that need to be done. He’s a very flawed man, but he is a serious conservative who takes our enemies seriously. He is oppossed to open borders, elective abortions, mandatory public education without the element of parental choice, sanctuary cities and states and high taxes. He is a champion for giving manufacturing a fair chance in the U.S. and his policies have made the U.S. a major force in the petroleum industry. He is also in favor of a strong and dynamic military and he believes in standing against Iran’s nuclearization. He believes in God, our nation’s founders, America’s exceptionalism and the value of preserving our history. He is very patriotic and supports our police and first responders. His America First policies have kept the financial markets booming for years. He believes in immigration, but he believes in managing the influx of migrants. He does not subscribe to Wokeness and globalism. He has broken new ground on establishing a new status quo for Israel and Arab nations in the Middle East…and the list goes on..

  3. So true…

    I tolerated 44 (0bama) for 8 years and kept quiet. Here is my issue with the whole, “let us all be a United States again” that we heard from Joe Biden. For the last 4+ years, the Democrats have gone and scorched earth. You have salted the fields and now you want to grow crops. The problem is 75 + million of us have memories longer than a hamster.
    We remember the women’s march (vagina hats and all) the day after inauguration.
    We remember the 4 years of attacks and impeachments
    We remember “not our president” and the “Resistance…”
    We remember Maxie Walters telling followers to harass us in restaurants.
    We remember the Presidents spokesperson being kicked out a restaurant.
    We remember hundreds of Trump supporters physically attacked.
    We remember Trump supporters getting Doxed, and fired from jobs.
    We remember riots, and looting.
    We remember “a comedian” holding up the President’s severed head.
    We remember a play in Central park paid with public funding, showing the killing of President Trump.
    We remember Robert de Niro yelling “F” Trump” at the Tony’s and getting a standing ovation.
    We remember Nancy Pelosi tearing up the State of the Union Address.
    We remember the total in the tank move on the mainstream media.
    We remember the non-stop and live fact checking on our President and his supporters.
    We remember non-stop in your face lies and open cover-ups from the media.
    We remember the President and his staff being spied on.
    We remember five Senators shot on a ballfield.
    We remember every so-called comedy show turn into nothing but Trump hate fest.
    We remember 95% negative coverage in the news.
    We remember the state governors asking and getting everything they ask for and then blaming Trump for their problems.
    We remember a Trump top aid verbally assaulted in two DC restaurants.
    We remember people banging on the Supreme Court doors.
    We remember that we were called every name in the book for supporting President Trump.
    We remember that Hollywood said they would leave after Trump was elected but they stayed.
    This list is endless, but you get the idea. My friends will be my friends, but a party that has been on the attack for 4 long years does not get a free pass with me.
    Copy and pasted from a friend because it is the truth, …especially when this election is exposing the integrity of not only this election, but also future elections to come.
