BETRAYAL: Mitch McConnell “Pleased” About Impeachment, Wants Trump and MAGA Movement Purged from GOP

One of the worst Republicans in American history.

Published

Mitch McConnell is reportedly “pleased” about the possibility of Trump’s second impeachment, viewing it as an opportunity to purge Trump from the Republican Party and whatever else Conservative Inc. deems “toxic.”

In a New York Times report published Monday afternoon, Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman write that the outgoing Senate Majority Leader believes Trump committed “impeachable offenses.” McConnell also welcomes impeachment in order to justify dumping Trump and shedding his influence over the GOP.

“Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, has indicated that he wants to see the specific article of impeachment that the House is set to approve on Wednesday, which is expected to draw support from as many as a dozen Republicans, potentially including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 in the House,” the report reads. “But he has made clear in private discussions that he believes now is the moment to move on the weakened lame duck, whom he blames for causing Republicans to lose the Senate.”

The Times also claims that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, although personally opposed to impeachment, has decided along with “other party leaders” to not formally lobby Republicans to vote “no” and is open to censuring the president. McCarthy discussed with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer a plan to get Republicans on board with a formal censure, but only if Democrats “backed off” from impeachment.

Big League Politics has closely followed McConnell’s ongoing betrayal of the president. At last week’s joint session of Congress, McConnell gave a speech rejecting President Trump’s claims of widespread fraud and a stolen election. The next day, McConnell echoed Joe Biden’s remarks that the breach of the Capitol building represented an act of “insurrection.”

This is not surprising news per se, but it’s still somewhat shocking to hear them be so open about it. And make no mistake, purging Trump implicitly means purging the base’s nationalism and populism. The battle lines have been drawn. Whose side are you on?

Mitch McConnell Censured by Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party for Betrayal of President Trump

Kentucky Republicans aren’t happy.

Published

Kentucky Senator and Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been formally censured by the Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party, with party officials accusing the establishment Republican of betraying President Donald Trump.

A censure resolution was unanimously approved on Tuesday evening, in response to McConnell’s claim that President Trump was responsible for a raucous protest at the US Capitol earlier this month.

The censure “demands (McConnell) retract his statements impugning the honor of President Donald J. Trump,” referring to claims made that President Trump incited the Capitol riot. President Trump had urged rallygoers to proceed to the Capitol peacefully, before a small minority of those present took matters too far and trespassed onto Capitol grounds, disrupting election certification proceedings.

I think it’s despicable. I think it’s a shame what he did today, because he used us over the past year to get his sorry butt reelected,” said a Kentucky Republican who phoned into the Nelson County GOP meeting in which McConnell was censured. “He used us.

The censure resolution accuses McConnell of  having “abandoned his Republican base that put him in office.

McConnell has even gone so far as to suggest that he’d consider convicting President Trump in an impeachment trial, even after he’s left office. Such a development would represent no less than a final, ultimate betrayal of President Trump, with legal experts suggesting such a move isn’t even legal, with the Senate lacking jurisdiction to convict a private citizen.

Kentucky Republicans are also pushing for a rebuke of McConnell within  the Kentucky Republican Party at the state level, and activists aim to pass a resolution requesting that McConnell shut down a second, hoax impeachment trial of President Trump, who has since left office.
