Report: Mitch McConnell indicates he may be open to convicting Trump of impeachment charges

Outgoing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was one of Donald Trump’s fiercest supporters since Trump took office in 2017.

However, that partnership appears to be completely broken, as McConnell reportedly told his GOP colleagues on Wednesday that he’s undecided about whether he’ll vote to convict President Trump of accusations brought by Democrats seeking to destroy the President once and for all. 

According to a memo sent to his GOP colleagues obtained by The Hill on Wednesday, McConnell took a decidedly different tone in regard to the impending impeachment fight than he did in 2019’s impeachment. “While the press has been full of speculation, I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell wrote.

The New York Times reported on Tuesday that McConnell agreed with Democrats that Trump committed an impeachable offense for his alleged role in the riots that took place at the U.S. Capitol last week.

Breitbart reported on Wednesday that “a Republican strategist told The Associated Press the GOP leader believes Trump committed impeachable offenses and considers the Democrats’ impeachment drive an opportunity to reduce the divisive, chaotic president’s hold on the GOP.”

Mitch McConnell, along with dozens of other Republicans have taken the opportunity presented by the riots to turn their backs on President Trump after years of defending him from the Democrat assault.

Though many GOP politicians believe that condemning Trump is the way to calm tensions and move on from the chaos of the past four years, Trump’s voters are unlikely to view the flood of GOP betrayals in a positive light.

According to pollster John McLaughlin of McLaughlin & Associates, Trump voters are furious with Representatives and Senators that are supporting the rushed and clearly politically-motivated impeachment.

Breitbart reported that McLaughlin’s survey conducted ahead of Wednesday’s House impeachment vote found that “80 percent of Trump voters and 76 percent of Republicans indicated that they are less likely to vote for a member of Congress who votes in favor of impeaching Trump.”

Additionally, nearly 75 percent of all voters believe this second impeachment is politically motivated, and 65 percent of respondents said that President-elect Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are “making this worse and keeping the country divided” with their relentless attacks on Trump.

Republicans supporting impeachment may feel good about signaling to the world that they’re on the “right side of history,” but it could cause some major problems for them once they ask their constituents to re-elect them in the coming years.

  1. McConnell has a yellow stripe down his back as big as Ky. We need to make a list of all the cowards that have turned against Our President and be sure they never get elected again.

    1. I am with you! We need a list of them. I emailed McConnell and asked him to rise above the petty spitefulness of Democrats and vote against impeachment. I also emailed my senator, Ted Cruz and thanked him for standing up for the president and asked him to continue to do so and vote no. You can find any senators email address by searching online. I would urge everyone to email their senators and urge them to vote no.

  2. RUMP DID NOT CAUSE THE RIOT AT THE CAPITAL > THE FBI KNEW ABOUT IT DAYS BEFORE THEY TOLD THE CHIEF OF THE CAPITAL POLICE HE DID NOT ASK FOR HELP>> THE ELITES AND DEMORATS PAID ANTIFA & BLM TO DO THE RIOT>:

    1. You are right. He was set up and framed – again! If we (conservatives) cannot find someone, who can and will do something about it, to look and listen to the evidence of fraud and cheating, and do it quickly, we are doomed to Communism.

    2. Your so right. I figured that out from the beginning. These Democracts think were to stupid to know anything. I hope KARMA comes back on them. I hope the rhinos n any democrat that was behind this will pay the consequences in the next election if not before. Need people who know how to stand up for our rights.

      1. I urge all true republicans not to work with the Rhinos, Cheney, McConnel, Romney and others in the leadership of the party as they are working to help the Dems, and will only cause problems with in the party. We need to remove them as quickly as possible, and deny them access to the party organization, or any help from the party. If they are going to help the dems, they will have to find another way. They have betrayed the people, and are no longer deserving of their support.

    3. I’ve been asking for days.
      Who arranged the attack on the Capitol; Pelosi, Schumer, or Biden?
      Did anyone notice those nice speeches that were delivered just two or three hours after the attack had ended? Speeches that well written and that well presented had to be rehearsed LONG before the attack occurred.

      1. We all know this was a set up. Probably a combined effort!! Money can buy anything it seems this day and age, just look how the election was bought!!

  3. Hey Mitch….what is it that you did that President Trump found out about? You seem to be really anxious to get rid of him all of a sudden. You people who have been in congress for far too long have learned the ropes, haven’t you? Taking bribes, making deals, hiding facts…..we’ve got your number. What a jerk.

  4. Mitch I think you are a coward and I hope the people in your state vote out.. You were losing and when President TRUMP came to help you win you stab him the. Traitor

    1. Yep. The only reason McConnell got a dime from me toward his campaign was because our President asked us to support his Republican Senate. Now he’s twisting the knife? I won’t be making that mistake again.

  5. Any Republican Leader who stabs Trump in the back should lose in the next election. We need a new national party and these people can go to the devil. They will have helped cause a second civil war, stock market crash and bank failures with their stupidity. If the left keeps on, we will all end up poor commies whether we want to or not. Our free nation is lost due to the left and weak Republican Leaders.

  6. Considering all the fraud & illegal votes, why was this election not thrown out & done over? From the info I have received, there is sufficient evidence to disqualify the whole thing. Dead people voting & more votes than registered voters.

    1. That’s what I will never understand. We should’ve thrown out all the ballots and started over with traditional voting at the polls with IDs and social distancing and observers allowed to do their observing as usual with as much safety as possible…plastic shields if necessary. Just make it work, legal and legitimate!

    2. I love how people like Juan Williams are saying the courts threw out the case because there was no evidence. I guess they have forgotten that the courts refused to hear any evidence. There is a difference.

  7. It is unusual for me to find something on the net thats as entertaining and fascinating as what youve got here. Your page is lovely, your graphics are great, and whats more, you use reference that are relevant to what you are talking about. You are certainly one in a million, man!
