First the insurrection on January 6, 2021, then the impeachment couldn’t be delivered to the Senate until after January 15 because McConnell said the Senate was not in session. Mitch McConnell got up to speak this week, after the impeachment vote, and said that Donald Trump was practically and morally responsible, but he couldn’t vote for it because Trump wasn’t the President at that time.
McConnell just wants it both ways. He wants to look like he was impartial and that he ALMOST voted to impeach Trump, but he didn’t, so he is still a Good Republican. Donald Trump watched the mob chaos on TV unfold. Donald Trump was impeached when he was President.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi is absolutely correct. That trial could have been held while Donald Trump was President. Mitch McConnell just wants to have his cake and eat it too. I am all for a 9/11 type of commission to investigate and report on the January 6, 2021 insurrection.
