Once again proving that he has no regard for his own voters, RINO Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has stabbed President Trump in the back, accusing him of “provoking” the storming of the Capitol and saying that “the mob” that attacked the Capitol “was fed lies.”
In what many are seeing as a sign that the second impeachment of President Trump could end with a conviction in the Senate, McConnell has shown his true colors.
“They were provoked by the President and other powerful people,” McConnell said. “They tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government, which they did not like,” he added. “But we pressed on.”
McConnell went on to note that the Senate had certified Joe Biden‘s election ‘victory,’ and that he and Kamala Harris will be sworn in without incident.
“We’ll have a safe and successful inaugural right here on the very front of the Capitol,” he said.
Mitch McConnell, 78, was elected in 1984, has been in office for 36 years, and his current term ends in 2027. His long tenure has led to many conservatives referring to him as an “establishment Republican,” and his tendency to side with the establishment against the conservative base has led to him being branded as a “Republican In Name Only” (RINO).
His comments came as the Senate is preparing to hold an impeachment trial against President Trump for the House of Representatives’ charge of “incitement of insurrection,” despite the fact that the president specifically called for the rally in Washington, D.C. to be peaceful.
