Following House Democrats’ partisan-driven and absolutely laughable impeachment vote, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell shared remarks earlier this morning.
Much to the chagrin of the Democrat Party, McConnell reminded Americans that the crusade to remove Trump from office has been in the making for YEARS. The Senate Majority Leader noted specific dates and instances in 2017 and even 2016 where Democrats began talks of impeachment.
In the wake of yesterday’s House vote, Speaker Pelosi has indicated that she doesn’t know when she’ll send articles of impeachment over to the Senate for a trial. Apparently, the House Speaker has concerns about the “fairness” of the trial which the Senate will hold, given their Republican majority.
However, McConnell reminded Pelosi and House Democrats of a thing or two, per reports from Fox News. During this morning’s remarks, the Senate Majority Leader informed Democrats and the nation of the Senate’s duty to “keep partisan passions from boiling over.”
A Closer Look at McConnell’s Remarks on Impeachment
The Senate Majority Leader did not mince words when he spoke earlier this morning. He called out Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats for getting “cold feet” on turning over their “shoddy” impeachment articles to the Senate for a trial.
McConnell additionally warned that House Democrats’ impeachment stunt set a dangerous precedent which is sure to engender future ramifications. The Senate Majority Leader furthermore noted the “rushed” and “unfair” nature of the impeachment proceedings, citing past instances where previous presidents have faced impeachment.
Reactions to McConnell’s Remarks
The Democrat Party has backed themselves into a corner, here. There’s no way out, which is why Speaker Pelosi wants to save the Democrat Party the embarrassment of sending impeachment articles over to the Senate, only for Republicans to promptly vote them down and acquit the president.
However, in the wake of McConnell’s remarks, conservatives reminded Pelosi and House Democrats of the inevitable ramifications which will follow if the House doesn’t forward impeachment articles to the Senate.
Sen. Lindsey Graham also had some thoughts shortly before McConnell delivered his remarks:
Democrats made their bed and now they must lay in it. Regardless, there is no scenario where the left gets the outcome they want which is a disgraced President Trump being booted out of office.
The 45th president will go down as the first president in history to be impeached by the House, acquited by the Senate, and win re-election by a massive landslide. Yesterday marked the beginning of the end of the Democrat Party as we know it.
