This Monday, on CNBC, Majority Leader of the feckless Republican-led Senate Mitch McConnell admitted that he would allow Trump’s impeachment to go through the Senate if Democrats keep pushing for it in Congress.
In spite of the fact that the whole impeachment is a sham that has been orchestrated by Democrats to humiliate Trump politically, McConnell doesn’t seem to have the backbone to stop it dead in its tracks.
“Under the Senate rules we’re required to take it up … I would have no choice but to take it up. How long we’re on it is a whole different matter.”
Of course, this isn’t actually the real reason. McConnell could stop the impeachment process if he wanted. That’s why he’s been often called the “Grim Reaper” of the Senate – because he has the power to stop Democrats and has used it before.
But for some reason, this time McConnell isn’t taking a stand for Trump. This should make us all a bit suspicious.
McConnell has basically given Democrats in Congress the green light to impeach Trump. All they have to do is get the process started in Congress – which they control.
Needless to say, this is all ridiculous. Trump hasn’t done anything warranting an impeachment. But that doesn’t matter, because Democrats have began a long process that they refuse to walk away from.
Trump is being unfairly targeted in all of this. But thankfully, due to the nature of the allegations made against him, if Democrats push for his impeachment too hard, it will backfire – which could be a major boost heading into the 2020 election.
However, McConnell should have stood up to Democrats. He had the power to nip this whole thing in the bud before it even began. Instead, he seems to be sleeping on the job. Disgraceful!
Trump doesn’t need to be impeached.
Trump did nothing wrong. Period.
