    FLASH - McConnell Bails on Trump
    Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, has told associates that he believes President Trump committed impeachable offenses and that he is pleased that Democrats are moving to impeach him.

    The House is voting on Wednesday to formally charge Trump with inciting violence against the country.

    At the same time, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the minority leader and one of Trumpís most steadfast allies in Congress, is considering whether he should call on Trump to resign.

    All that's left for McConnell is to reconvene the Senate for the trial. Dem Senator Schumer has already called for that. Both are needed.

    You answered your own question - McConnell and McCarthy are rats! Disgraces to the Irish, both.

    The turtle is mad that Trump's antics cost the Repubs the Senate . He's also one of those brave airline passengers who fly with their seatbelts on and then bravely removed them when the plane is safely on the tarmac taxiing to the terminal but not yet at a complete stop .

    The turtle did not mind riding Trump's coattails . While Trump ranted against the swamp critters ,he made a calculation to have an alliance with Mitch . Mitch benefitted from it with majorities in 2016 and 2018.
    He sees this as a great excuse not just to get rid of Trump ;but also "Trumpism" from the establishment RINO party . In that he and the other swamp critters from the other side of the aisle are in alliance

    That's the way the pendulum swings when pols have used each other up. Now for the tough votes the people can judge and decide who goes, and who stays.

    Nice try but repubs are the ones going through the identity crisis. Most are still scared witless of reprisals for bucking the dufus sycophants. 2022 is closer than you think.

    It may be well justified in this case. You at least have to look at it closely and not just dismiss it as Stalinesque.

    Absolutely amazing that a Republican supporter can talk about a Faustian bargain! Chutzpah personified.

    nope it has been the left's dream to control thought and to criminalize thought they disagree with . It does not surprise me that it has come down to not only going after Trump ,but also after all involved . What are you planning ? Nuremburg ? Maoist reeducation camps for 72 million ?

    A bit over the top there Tom but the plan seems to be investigate the FACTS as has been done after every disaster we have faced and mitigate our losses. A challenge for sure given the right is still hollering foul over masks, money, elections and NO GUNS on the House floor.

    I think the real priority is vaccinate our way out of this covid recession myself, as we figure out what to do about our politics.

    We don't need the fine points, we have a simple way of getting rid of unwanted leaders and politicians and our inquiries are to die for. You see you announce an inquiry and the subject has to stand down while it is conducted, a millstone and usually an end to the career

    The turtle got Mitch slapped . He was counting on a big wave of RINOs to stand by him. Turns out there were a total of 10 in the House. That is why he changed his mind about fast tracking the trial .Now he is not in any hurry and is punting it to the Schmuckster .

    The leader of the RINO revolt in the House ;Lynn Cheney now is facing being ousted from her prestigious leadership position in the GOP conference . All it would take is 20% of the Repub members signing a petition to bring her ouster to a vote .
