Can't Mitch McConnell just pretend impeachment is a federal judge he wants to confirm?
Mitch McConnell says there’s no time to hold an impeachment trial 7 days before inauguration but confirmed Amy Coney Barrett 8 days before election when 65 million had already voted
McConnell says 5 days is not enough time for Senate to convict Trump of inciting an insurrection against the United States government. But he got Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination from Senate floor to confirmation in 4 days.
Move it, Mitch. Now.
Now that the House has impeached him, any violence Trump inspires in the next week is a direct consequence of McConnell’s refusal to come back from vacation and hold the trial.
McConnell will refuse to call an emergency senate session and then when impeachment arrives in two weeks he’ll complain that it’s pointless because trump has left office & vote no
I just saved you two weeks of “what will Mitch do”
Trumpism is Paul Ryan without the middling intelligence. Reagan without the smile. Nixon without the hiding. Gingrich without the History Channel facts. W. without the beer vibes. McConnell without the strategic cunning. Buchanan without the articulacy. This is who they’ve been.
Donald Trump is in charge of the Republican Party. Not Liz Cheney, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell or Mitch McConnell.
Days it took for Mitch McConnell to move Amy Coney Barrett from the Senate floor to confirmation: 4
Days until the end of Trump’s term: 7
MOVE IT, MITCH
Donald Trump is a clear danger to our country and our democracy. Mitch McConnell must bring the articles of impeachment to the Senate floor as soon as possible for a final verdict. There cannot be unity without accountability.
The House has spoken. President Trump incited an angry mob, including trained and armed militia members, to storm our citadel of democracy. For that, he must go. Bring us back now, Senator McConnell, and let us cast him out.
Is Mitch McConnell a coward or a traitor for not bringing the Senate back to convict Trump after the house impeached?
The president is furious with McConnell but deeper anger is at McCarthy, people close to him say. Felt like McCarthy betrayed him by condemning what he did/checking support for censure https://t.co/lAmjj84uC1
McConnell voted to convict Bill Clinton.
Which means he thinks it is worse to incite an erection than to incite insurrection.
If Capitol Police had worn body cameras it would have helped with the riot investigation. In 2018 the Dems created a bill to require it. But McConnell refused to bring it up for a vote. Now, Rep. Greg Stanton (D-AZ) introduced another bill for cameras.👍
He is displeased with McConnell but particularly McCarthy, who was once so loyal that the House leader had aides sort Starbursts so POTUS wouldn’t have to look for favorite flavors. Trump is not planning to resign early and has been comforted that he won’t be convicted by Jan 20. https://t.co/KytMWvUAku
Can you imagine this happening now?
Not just post-impeachment, but in the past few months?
According to sources, Pelosi hasn't spoken to Trump since Oct 16, 2019. Schumer hasn't spoken to Trump "in months."
Per previous reporting McConnell hasn't spoken to Trump since 12/16
It’s a burden to be this right about how bad things are all the time.
“A majority of Republicans still think Trump was right to challenge his election loss, support him, don’t blame him for the Capitol mob and want him to be the GOP nominee in 2024.” https://t.co/E5OSwFZkCW
Mitch McConnell se aparta del impeachment. Dice que no hay forma de que el juicio contra Trump concluya antes de que asuma Joe Biden. En consecuencia, pide al Congreso enfocarse en la transición, no en ir contra Trump.
I can't remember the last time I disagreed with Mitch McConnell. But waiting to hold an impeachment trial is a mistake. Trump must be held accountable now. Me @NRO https://t.co/Jj1fZe5Y1N
Republicans across the U.S. are siding with President Trump over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — big time — according to a new Axios-Ipsos poll. https://t.co/jqkhRlfE6O
What I like is Not the sycophants and their loud mouths but the fact that
Liz Cheney, Mitch McConnell, and Kevin McCarthy are on the same page on trumpfs Guilt.
Tha t IS the Power of the GOP.
Liz Cheney is the Mitt Romney of the Mitch McConnell.
Good. Now for McConnell to do the right thing, for once in his political life, and convict Trump.
MCCONNELL HAS TOLD ASSOCIATES THAT IMPEACHMENT WOULD RID THE PARTY OF TRUMP AND HIS MOVEMENT - FOX NEWS
Not enough. Or maybe not at all. McConnell is a coward, a traitor, a self serving POS. His words mean nothing.

The nice thing about Biden becoming President is the Dems don't need McConnell anymore to fight against popular, necessary policies 🤡🤡🤡
Il est impossible que le Sénat puisse juger de manière « équitable » Donald Trump avant la fin de son mandat, a estimé mercredi le chef républicain de la chambre haute, Mitch McConnell.
