Senate GOP warns McConnell he’s on thin ice

Former President Donald Trump has been out of office less than a week and the Republican party is — to some degree — already in a state of disarray.

According to The Hill, a number of high-profile Republicans are pointing fingers at Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for causing a further divide within the party in the wake of remarks he made after the Capitol riots in which he squarely blamed Trump for the tragic events of that day. 

“The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people,” McConnell said at the time, causing an uproar on social media among Trump’s supporters who immediately labeled the Kentucky senator a “RINO,” among other insults.

Several Republican senators, including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), have come out in recent days demanding that McConnell do whatever he can to quash the upcoming Senate impeachment trial for Trump, which Paul says will rip the party apart if Republicans go along with it.

“Republicans, particularly Republican leadership, goes along with this impeachment, they’ll destroy the party,” Paul said. “And so I think it’s a huge mistake. I think it’s a hugely partisan exercise on the part of the Democrats. But for Republicans who go along with it, I think they’ll destroy our party.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) also called out McConnell by name, echoing Paul’s message that Trump’s second impeachment is unconstitutional and implored Republican leaders to “fight back.”

McConnell, so far, hasn’t eluded to whether or not he’s in favor of convicting Trump in a Senate trial, which according to NPR will begin on February 8. Given the growing rift in the party, especially less than two years before the 2022 midterm elections, it’s not a stretch to say that if Republicans join Democrats in convicting the former president, tens of millions of Americans will likely express their frustration at the polls.

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) confirmed that Trump supporters are not liking what they’re seeing within the ranks of Senate GOP leadership, saying he’s “hearing a lot of the same criticism from folks back home.

In the meantime, you can bet your bottom dollar that Senate Democratic leadership will do everything they can to strike a deal with McConnell and other moderate Republican senators to join their side, as a successful conviction of Trump would likely eliminate any chance of Trump running for office again in the future.

  1. McConnell has already sealed his fate by not standing up for his party and falsely accusing the riot on President Trump, They all know it’s a lie because pelosi and her son planned the whole thing and they even have proof of this.

    I garantee you I saw it myself on the media.

    1. Dewayne….McConnell looks crocked every time he gets on TV…McConnell doesn’t know what the hell he is doing and cost Pres. Trump and other Republican candidates the election…

      1. YOU GOT THAT RIGHT! I SAY REMOVE THE MURDER TURTLE AND DO IT QUICK HE IS A GUTLESS WONDER.SEMPER FI DO OR DIE HOLD EM HIGH AT 8TH AND I.DEOVINDICE AND GOD BLESS AMERICA.

      1. Of course, he has always wanted to get completely rid of Trump.
        A MAGA Republican needs to replace McConnell.
        We need to get rid of the RINOs in the GOPe or start the Patriot Party

        1. If the GOP doesn’t know by now that they need to join together to fight the Radical DEMs, they haven’t spoken with any of their CONSTITUENTS WHO VOTED FOR THEM! The DEMS are ALWAYS IN LOCKSTEP! The minor differences, if any, are erased by their leadership pushing for the GREATER GOOD, WHICH I GUESS MEANS ENDING THE END A DEMOCRATIC AMERICA. The DEMs are pushing the evil, ANTI-AMERICAN, in need of punishment, Trump supporters narrative to the MAXIMUM! Next they will ask their friends at Google to help them identify who we are, so we can be PURGED AND PUNISHED TOO! BIDEN HAS ORDERED THE US MILITARY TO STAND DOWN UNTIL THEY CAN PURGE THE RANKS OF ALL CONSERVATIVES, TRUMP SUPPORTERS AND ANYONE ELSE WHO DOESN’T AGREE WITH THEM! STANDARD TACTIC WHENEVER THE COMMUNISTS TAKE OVER. It happened in Russia, and China! The idiots at BLM and ANTIFA have never read history because both Russia and China PURGED THE RADICALS WHO HELPED GET THEM IN POWER! IF THE GOP DOESN’T REQUIRE PARTY UNITY N A FIGHT WITH THE DEMS OVER PROTECTION OF ALL AMERICANS, YES, EVEN THE WHITE ONES, NOT ONLY THE GOP IS DOOMED, BUT OUR COUNTRY IS AS WELL! THE COMMUNISTS CHOSE JUST TO HIJACK THE DEM PARTY RATHER THAN STARTING THEIR OWN AS THEY WOULD NEVER WIN A MAJOR ELECTION! I REGISTERED AS A REPUBLICAN BECAUSE I SUPPORTED TRUMP, IF THEY CONTINUE TO SQUABBLE AND ALLOW RINOS TO FLOURISH IN THEIR RANKS, I WILL GO BACK TO BEING AN INDEPENDENT!

    2. What the hell with all mouth pieces spiting crap on a daily
      bases on the left.
      They as we speak are securing hundreds of Dem voters south
      of border. A.O.C.
      Many people are reflecting at present issue that the left is
      trying to do.
      You folks do not have a clue what you would do to this country
      if this stupid position is accepted.

    3. Yes indeed.Ok, we will remember ..now,the repubs. Better be afraid of WE THE PEOPLE….WE ARE UNITED FOR TRUMP .PERIOD .

  2. It is time for Republicans to drain their own swamp. We are tired of the traitors who f the party. Start a movement to recall these rinos, and stop funding them. I refuse to support the party until I see these things accomplished, however they want to do it. I am ashamed to be a Republican, so I officially changed to Independent until it becomes the United Conservative party they were hired to be.

    1. What? From The party of President Trump (although much input is required) to the party of Bernie and R Paul? Independents see mothing, say mothing, do nothing, and never bring anything concrete to the table. This is a commom move I have never understood. Better to go hide under your bed till its over.

    2. This is correct, the Republican Party needs to drain their swamp, get fix of the rhinos or we move on to a new Trump party, there is a lot of very upset Republicans ???

    3. As a once proud Republican, I never thought of becoming an Independent, but if McConnell and any Republican in Congress let this “Impeachment” go through; I will switch to an Independent. Georgia was the last hope for Republicans to save our Country and they didn’t do it in the General election, nor in the runoff. Perhaps we’ll succeed in 2yrs.

  3. If Trump is impeached it’ll be the last nail on the coffin of the Republican Party. The little support they have now will forever be gone. I cannot think of any of my fellow Republican friends at this time that would bother to vote or much less support the party after it turned against president Trump. The Republican Party was the party of Trump. Now that he’s gone they are no better than the Democratic swamp.

    1. I heard President Trump might be starting the Patriot Party-that is where I am heading starting with changing from republican to independent. You might consider doing the same. Let the republicans know that you are tired of there s… -going against President Trump.

    2. Not only will it be the END OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, IT WILL BE THE END OF OUR FREEDOM, PROSPERITY, PEACE, THE CONSTITUTION, OUR AMERICAN FLAG, LAW AND ORDER, JUSTICE FOR ALL, AND THE SAFETY OF EVERY PATRIOT AMERICAN.

      NOW THAT THE COMMUNIST DEMORATS HAVE STOLEN THE ELECTION, WE CAN EXPECT BIDEN’S COMMUNIST CHINA BUDDY TO TAKE CONTROL OF THE ONCE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, “AMERICA”
      JUST LOOK HOW anti-AMERICAN, THIEF, CRIMINAL, RACIST, TRASH, DEMENTIA BIDEN & THE COMMUNIST DEMORAT PARTY TREATED OUR NATIONAL GUARDS…LIKE GARBAGE TO SLEEP IN A COLD GARAGE, AFTER THEY PUT THEIR OWN LIVES ON THE LINE TO PROTECT SATAN BIDEN & HIS COMMUNIST DEMORATS. BURN IN HELL BIDEN AND THE ENTIRE COMMUNIST DEMORAT PARTY.

  4. If the GOP and Mitch (both are responsible) follow thru on impeachment, there will be a huge exodus of the GOP. Take heed….

    1. Ditto! We wanted Mcconnell gone when Boehner left. Both were only looking out for themselves and not for the tax paying American citizens. Republicans like them are no different than Democrats. We are registered Republicans only because we are definitely not Democrats and the name “Patriot” Party sounds great to us.
      TRUMP 2024!

  5. McConnell has been a weak sister for a long time. It took the first 2 years of Trump’s Presidency for McConnell to realize what a gift was available to him. He then squandered the next 18 months and returned to his MO of the first 2. If he had anything on the ball, We would not be in the mess we are in. He more attuned to what the media was saying than what his heart should have told him was right. Mitch and a large portion of the Republican Party are finished as far as many Americans are concerned. Look for a new party to rise from the ashes, one where RINOs
    and cowards need not apply.

  6. McConnell in my opinion is as corrupt as any Democrat. I cant vote for him because of his China connection. I truly believe the reason he does not go along with the election fraud scenario is because that is how he wins and stays in office.

    1. True, Mitch’s China connections need to be discovered (did Joe help him in this one??) AND the campaign contributions from Dominion to ole’ Mitch should raise some questions as well. The SWAMP has both DEMS and RINOs in their mix. The American people are being sold out by these ‘people’.

  7. At 77, I no longer call myself a Republican and will no longer donate to the Republican Party. In the future, I will pick and chose my candidates on many things including their honestly and loyalty. Like the Media (especially Fox News) and the backstabbing so called Republican leaders they have opened the eyes of many loyal Republican voters and media followers. They have shown they do not know the value of loyalty and without loyalty there is no respect. Without respect there is nothing. The media and many of the so called Republican and Democrat leaders goal was to sink the “Trump Years” but it is not President Trump who carries the stink of the D.C. swamp. Thank you President Trump.

  8. What a circus. It is unconstitutional to try President Trump. Especially if he is not in office. Tell the secret society(the gadiantan robbers. That we are not going to bow down to them . We know who the rhinos are in the Republican party. Mitt Romney and Mitch McConnell to name two.

  9. The leadership in the republican party has turned their back on My President. I must say I now will do the same to the party. I have lost all respect for these wimps. He stood with them and for us and they turned away.

  10. All the RINO’s in the Republican party should be kicked to the curb! And that includes the leadership.
    Thank you, President Trump for being bold and fighting for America!

  11. mitch u like your job and we the people can take that from u and there 75 millions that voted for our president donald j trump and we can vote u out of office count on it

  12. If the Republican Senators cannot tell McConnell what to do, what is the point. If one senile old man can make all the decisions for our party and we can do nothing about it, I want my money back. Tell me, what did President Trump say that would incite a riot? I watched his whole speech and the protestors were already doing their thing be fore he finished, Just look at who caused the problems, no Trump supporter ever showed up at a rally wearing riot gear and wearing helmets. If this impeachment can go forward because some 80 year old senile women has such a hate for President Trump and do so without providing any evidence we might as well be living in Russia or China. Why do we have a Supreme Court?

  13. We need to vote out people like mett Romney Mike Lee Tom Cotton Susan Collins kevin mccarthy and many more swamp creature

  14. Thank you president Trump for all you have done for me and my family and for all american you keep America safe and brought jobs back and no new wars and moush more

  15. Good! McConnell is NOT a real Republican anyway but a backstabbing Rino. He has never supported Trump or any real conservative. He should be kicked out of the RNC! I do not like him nor trust him

  16. McConnell needs to switch parties. He is Not a True Republican like a few others. Him and quite a few others are RINO’s and need to go !
    I will donate my money straight to the President Trump , He cared more about our country than anyone I know in Office ! Most of the Politician’s go into politics to get rich . President Trump actually Lost money . President Trump even donated his paycheck to help other causes. How many other politicians Do You Know that will do that ? Zero!
    I’m Not donating anymore money to the Republicans as a Group !
    If McConnell continues with this farse of an Impeachment , he might as well change to Demonut Mitch !
    Taylor Green did right filing Impeachment charges on China Joe , But also needs to file them on Heels up Harris . She Helped start the Minnesota Freedom Fund to bail out the very people that the police arrested !

  17. I live in Kentucky, me and family, and friends voted for mitch, Donald trump came to KY to help mitch last year in the election. I have to agree with the posted remarks,
    mitch McConnell can not be trusted he is a Rhino. he showed the people who he stands with” the { democrats}” he will never get my vote again. also my many friends will not vote for him. I am switching from republican party, to either conservative or patriot party. the [republican party] is getting to be to much like the democrat party.
    my view is DONALD TRUMP is still president he did not have a chance to defend himself in our courts about voter fraud and about violence he is being accused of.

    1. I am thinking we should go with Patriot Party or Constitutional Party. Patriot has a better ring to it though. Screw the Republican party, they did it to us first.

  18. It’s building up to a civil war. Slowly but surely we are going to be fighting American communist here in the USA. Things are coming to an extreme boiling point. I know I’m fed up with political elite, not doing the job they were sent to do. Not very many of them can speak a word of truth. And most of them are getting filthy rich. Their is not enough money in the world to get me to lie like they do. And most of them have absolutely no backbone. AND HOW CAN THEY THE HOUSE AND SENATE, A SACRED PLACE, WHEN IT IS FULL OF LAIRS, CHEATERS AND SANDBAGGERS BACK STABBERS TAND PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO REMOVE GOD OUT OF THIS COUNTRY?

  19. So Mitch, what are your plans now since you destroyed your own job? Finally going to retire, please get out of politics.

  20. As a once proud Republican, I never thought of becoming an Independent, but if McConnell and any Republican in Congress let this “Impeachment” go through; I will switch to an Independent. Georgia was the last hope for Republicans to save our Country and they didn’t do it in the General election, nor in the runoff. Perhaps we’ll succeed in 2yrs.
