McConnell trashes Pelsoi on Senate floor

 

Mitch McConnell says the articles of impeachment the House is set to send over “is not about the nuances of foreign assistance to Eastern Europe. This has been naked partisanship all along.”

 

 


 

 

McConnell makes case for Trump acquittal ahead of trial

 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Wednesday ripped House Democrats and made the case for the upper chamber acquitting President Trump as he waits for the articles of impeachment to be transmitted.

 

McConnell, speaking from the Senate floor, did not directly call for senators to vote to acquit Trump but argued that senators cannot follow the House’s lead and agree that the president deserves to be impeached and ultimately removed from office.

 

“Speaker Pelosi and the House have taken our nation down a dangerous road. If the Senate blesses this unprecedented and dangerous House process by agreeing that an incomplete case and subjective basis are enough to impeach a president, we will almost guarantee the impeachment of every future president. This is the kind of anti-democratic recall measure that the founding fathers explicitly, explicitly did not want.”

 

 

 

Here’s the full speech…

Mitch, even if you cannot get the votes for an acquittal, take the vote. We need to see who votes for and against this. Don’t cover for those who would vote against it. The primaries are coming up and now is the time to know.

As much as I don’t like Mitch, I would never underestimate his abilities in the Senate. He may know much more than he’s letting on. Something tells me this won’t go very long at all.

It’s possible he is also just covering his rear end. “‘Well, I tried.” Um hmm, sure you did. Hope I am wrong.

Mitch is the one that said a few weeks ago that the senate would dismiss rapidly. That shows his lack of ability.

Can’t dismiss until the House has done their job and sent the articles to the Senate. Try to keep up.

Mitch does not want to embarrass himself and hurt his chances of being leader next year. After all, he has worked for years to put in the very RINOs now causing him the problems. I hope he suffers immensely for his cowardice.

It’s the Circus with a Purpose. While Biden is campaigning in Iowa (and soon NH), Warren and Sanders will be sitting in the Senate Chambers six days a week. Don’t think for a second this was a coincidence, it was by design. If they allow witnesses, they will be sequestered for Weeks listening to this Sideshow. Meanwhile it also pushes the narrative that Biden has been targeted by Trump because he’s leading the Primary. When this Shitshow finally explodes on every level (which it will), it will be hysterical to watch.

Exactly … they need 67 votes (2/3 of the Senate) to dismiss Trump … ain’t gonna get 20 republicans to vote for that … & if Mittens, Collins, Murkowski & possibly Lee vote against Trump …. think about it, they’ll be Dead Senators Walking

… & I’m pretty sure McTurtle knows this

there are 2 things that need to be done: build the honest, common sense (if not conservative) mainstream media; and win overwhelming majority in Congress and local legislatures. Oh, and third: move the government bureaucracy from Wash., DC to flyover country.

This is a malicious impeachment!
It is based on slanderous testimony and collusion from the lead Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff, Eric Ciarmella and the office of Inspector General Michael Atkinson! I would call them as the first witnesses!

Mitch could have proceeded 3 weeks ago to get USMCA passed but he let that misfit Nancy be his excuse not to. That’s horrible leadership. Mitch had 3 years to conduct some serious hearings about the coup, FISA, perjury, leaks, Ukraine, … and he did nothing. He’s a horrible senate leader. We’ve never seen a party leader avoid supporting a president that is being framed before. He sat idly by to protect his precious corrupt DC rather than protecting the voter’s will.

Don’t tell me about the judges and the tax cut, any halfway decent republican would have done that better.

If Trump is impeached or one hair on him is touched, patriots will come out of the dirt to start a revolt that makes 1775 look like a cakewalk. We will not sit back and let anything happen to our President.

The people of the US have been screaming at the top of their lungs that Empress Pelosi and her cohorts have no clothes of liberty, modesty, good will, nor do they have a love of this country. They will spend their last days on earth, drinking sour grape juice and eating underwater spiders and declaring among themselves that they did this to protect our country. But from whom?

ONLY TWO THINGS THAT NEED TO BE SAID, THEN CALL THE VOTE MITCH.
START THE TRENDING NOW:

“Even Democrats now admit that it was right to look into Burisma and the
Bidens, as we saw in the House testimony from the Democrat witnesses.

It cannot be obstruction of Congress to ask the Judicial Branch to
resolve a dispute between the Legislative and Executive Branches, as the
US Constitution requires.”

It would be great to see Bernie, Fake-O-Hontass and Goobershaw vote to Dismiss the Trial. If they don’t, and a prolonged Trial takes place and they miss Iowa, NH and SC, the way will have been paved for Doomberg. They matters well fold their campaigns now if the Trial takes place. Booker saw that handwriting and I would guess decided to save his War Chest for another day.

Even if Trump were to get impeached he could ron in 2020 and would get reelected. Then there would be politcal hell to pay for their treasonous actions.

Their holy grail has to be taking Trump off the ballot in 2020. It’s unlikely, but possible. Some RINOs hate Trump and some other R’s can be blackmailed probably.
They will need a bombshell. Like some deep stater lying under oath.
