McConnell Outlines Case for Trump’s Acquittal

Mitch McConnell publically made the case for President Trump’s acquittal even before the trial has started in the senate.

According to The Hill:

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,” McConnell said.

He added that the House impeachment inquiry was “the kind of anti-democratic recall measure that the founding fathers explicitly, explicitly did not want.”

Following McConnell’s rebuke, the House voted to transmit the articles to the senate.

I would not let the Democrats in, if I was there. They only want to stand up and not let the Republicans ask question again.

It is unfortunate for the citizens of this country to have a so-called ‘leader’ of the House of Representatives who does not stand strongly for our Constitution. Let’s hope that the Senate will make short shrift of this nefarious farce. —
