Mitch, Mitch, Mitch. Donald Trump is a 300lb. anvil about to be tossed off the rowboat. If you would like to tie that to your neck, I say “Please proceed.”

McConnell can say what he wants right now. If public opinion changes -particularly among Republicans -with each additional morsel of information, so will he. Of that, I have no doubt. He’s not leading on this, he’s following.

It’s all true. He’s over the Trial and Conviction, not Impeachment…

The Republican Party is a criminal organization and has been for some time. This is not shocking. The rich have been conditioning the rabble since Reagan.

This senate trial after impeachment will be over quicker than a kavanaugh investigation.

Not necessarily. Trump’s not the only guy that the CIA has a lot of dirt on.

He can do and say whatever he likes. The investigation will proceed; the hearings will proceed; the evidence will continue to be revealed.

If he wants to be on the wrong side of history, that is his prerogative. When he loses the Senate and all of his contacts and Chao loses her job and is possibly prosecuted for her stuff, we can always remind him of his position.

Probably at least on the call. Along with Jared.

saying he would have “no choice” but to put it to a vote.

Well, that’s technically true. He can gavel in the proceedings, someone can move to dismiss, a ‘vote’ can be taken and the whole thing shut down in under ten minutes. But yeah… ‘comity’ and all that.

Depending on the quality of dirt that starts pouring out of the IC - McConnell will do everything he can to save the Senate Majority - including tossing the orange turdblossom and installing someone else.

Can’t trust Moscow Mitch to maintain a consistent position. He’ll do whatever is in his immediate political interest, no matter how many norms and taboos he has to break.

features a short video of McConnell telling users that a “left wing mob” has “convinced” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to launch an impeachment inquiry into Trump.

“All of you know your Constitution,” the Republican senator says. “The way that impeachment stops is a Senate majority with me as majority leader.”

McConnell then urges for supporters’ “help” in the form of contributions to his campaign.

:popcorn::popcorn:

just waiting on the ‘it’s Pelosi’s fault’/ ‘slowwalking’ crowd to respond.
