The Morning Rant | Main | Calvin Freiberger to National Review: If It's "Incitement to Insurrection" to Note Democrats' Longstanding Practice of Election Fraud, Get Ready to Stand Trial Yourself, Boys

Claim: Mitch McConnel "50/50" on Voting to Remove Trump from Office; If McConnell Votes to Remove, Trump Will Likely Be Removed

Jonathan Martin @jmartNYT A Senate Republican aide tells me he thinks there were about 20, give or take, Republicans who were *open* to a conviction [even before we ran our story on McConnell being open to impeachment]

...


Several GOP sources say tonight that if McConnell supports conviction, Trump almost certainly will be convicted by 67 senators in impeachment trial.

"If Mitch is a yes, he's done," said one Senate Republican who asked to be named. Many Rs are staying mum

I believe this.

Why? Because Mitch the Bitch is a piece of shit who fights GOP dissidents and insurgents more fiercely than he's ever fought his Very Good Friends in the opposite party. (Allegedly in the opposite party, I should say.)

He has bitterly fought the Tea Party for a dozen years -- while accommodating his Very Good Friends in the Democrat Party.

Yes, yes: the judges. Point taken.

But what else?

The other reason I believe that China's Man in DC is doing this is that 85% of Republicans oppose impeachment.

Which naturally makes Mitch suddenly get feisty and fight-y.


The only people he ever wants to fight are possible Republican challengers to corporatist rule.

Also worth noting: He hasn't denied it.

Correction: Marcus T says that McConnell's office has denied it.

41 Hannity called McConnell's office last night on-air. They said this was total bullshit. Posted by: Marcus T


Re: the 85% of Republicans who oppose impeachment: 60% said Trump did nothing wrong, and the rest say that it's too late in his term to be worth the effort.
