GOP Leaders Plotted Against Trump on Jan. 6
A new book is revealing how top GOP leaders Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) betrayed President Donald Trump on Jan. 6.
After the mostly-peaceful protest in and around the U.S. Capitol, McCarthy and McConnell were plotting behind closed doors to destroy President Trump, including the possibility of colluding with Democrats to impeach the President.
The new book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden and the Battle for America’s Future,” by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns details the backroom dealings that McCarthy and McConnell were working on amidst the chaos of Jan. 6.
“I’ve had it with this guy,” McCarthy told a group of Republican leaders on Jan. 6, adding that Trump’s actions “inciting people” in the Capitol were “atrocious and totally wrong.”
“What he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that and nobody should defend it,” the House Minority Leader stated, also contemplating the use of the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. McCarthy also told confidants he would implore Trump to resign from office.
Shamefully, McCarthy also called for more Big Tech censorship against America First leaders, such as Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for refusing to accept the phony narrative about Jan. 6.
“We can’t put up with that,” McCarthy said, adding, “Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away, too?”
Reps. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Tom Emmer (R-MN) joined McCarthy in his anti-Trump plotting, suggesting the need for a “post-Trump Republican House” and the need to censure the president.
In the days following Jan. 6, Mitch McConnell was working back channels in an attempt to impeach President Trump to prevent him from ever running for office again.
“The Democrats are going to take care of the son of a bitch for us,” McConnell said, adding that “if [Trump’s behavior on Jan. 6] isn’t impeachable, I don’t know what is,”
Big League Politics has reported on President Trump wishing he marched with his supporters on Jan. 6, refusing to back down regarding the necessity of that patriotic protest on behalf of election integrity:
Trump said this during an interview with the Washington Post where he also blamed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for allegedly ordering Capitol Police to stand down while the violent display was staged.
“I thought it was a shame, and I kept asking why isn’t she doing something about it? Why isn’t Nancy Pelosi doing something about it? And the mayor of D.C. also. The mayor of D.C. and Nancy Pelosi are in charge,” Trump said.
“I hated seeing it. I hated seeing it. And I said, ‘It’s got to be taken care of,’ and I assumed they were taking care of it,” he added.
Trump ultimately blamed Secret Service for not allowing him to live up to his word and march with his supporters to the U.S. Capitol on that fateful day.
“Secret Service said I couldn’t go. I would have gone there in a minute,” he said.”
McCarthy and McConnell deserve worse than just getting voted out of office for their crimes against their party, their country and their constituents. They need to be remembered as negatively as Benedict Arnold for their treasonous actions in supporting the vote steal.
