Senate Sources Tell Sean Davis: Mitch McConnell Isn't Really Stepping Down. There's a Revolt Brewing and He'll Likely Be Removed from Leadership, So He's Saying He's "Stepping Down" To Stop the Vote to Remove Him.

And he'll un-step down when he senses that the current controversy has passed.

So this explains why he's not ragequitting the Senate -- this is all a ploy. Just like Kevin McCarthy stuck around in the House just to repeatedly attempt to be re-elected Speaker, and only finally left after a popular consensus choice had been elected to replace him.

This is a fake announcement of stepping down -- he'll be continuing to scheme to remain in power.

He just doesn't want to be formally evicted from leadership.

Sean Davis @seanmdav

Senate insiders tell me McConnell's surprise announcement is a desperate move to retain his grip on power, as his support within the conference is cratering following his disastrous attempt to rubber stamp Biden's open borders amnesty policy. Rather than face a formal vote of removal, McConnell announced his plan to resign the leadership post in November. Career Senate staff tell me momentum was building within the Senate GOP to formally oust McConnell as leader.

"Even a growing number of moderates were angry at the chaos he was sowing in the conference," one senior Senate GOP aide told me.

An open rebellion against McConnell was in the works due to his "repeated sabotage of Republican priorities and border inaction," the aide said.

Others told me McConnell's move was entirely cynical, and an attempt to cling to power for another 8 months.

He's just trying to get ahead of "a possible defenestration," one aide said.

More Luciferian scheming from this evil vampire.

I know I may ask for a lot out of our Republican leaders but I will personally not be looking past Mitch McConnell's career of handing Democrats policy victories, his recent escapade of breaking apart the Senate GOP Conference and legislating open borders to send his precious billions to Ukraine, just because he did his job on the Supreme Court eight years ago.

It's the most DC Republican thing ever when they demand endless praise for a politician because of one good thing he did nearly a decade ago even though he has by any metric spent the last three years being Joe Biden's best ally in Congress.

Shawn Fleetwood writes at The Federalist that none of McConnell's traitorous henchmen, who repeatedly, defiantly put Ukraine's and China's interests above the US's, can be allowed to succeed him.

(Assuming he actually ever gives up power, which I definitely do not assume.)

While backlash from Republican voters and the caucus' more conservative senators ultimately killed the proposal, the finished product proved McConnell never had any interest in securing America's southern border. The only thing that matters to him and Senate GOP leadership is bankrolling Ukraine's forever war against Russia.

This sentiment was further confirmed after the bill's defeat, in which McConnell and Senate leadership rammed through a $95 billion foreign spending package that included (mostly) funding for Ukraine and zero provisions addressing America's ongoing border invasion. Of course, the Kentucky Republican had help pushing the measure across the finish line. Despite objections from numerous GOP senators, the bill passed 70-29, with 22 Republicans voting "yea."

Among those who supported its passage are GOP Sens. John Thune of South Dakota and John Cornyn of Texas. Both are viewed as contenders to replace McConnell as party leader in the Senate.

Contrary to McConnell's belief that dumping taxpayer dollars into Ukraine is the "single most important event going on in the world," Biden's border invasion is overwhelming communities across the country and costing American lives. Just ask the parents of Laken Riley, a 22-year-old University of Georgia nursing student who was reportedly murdered by an illegal alien from Venezuela last weekend while out on a jog; the 14-year-old girl allegedly raped by a different Venezuelan illegal in Virginia last week; or the parents of the two-year-old who was allegedly killed by an El Salvadorian illegal in Maryland earlier this month; or the many other victims who have suffered from illegal alien crimes.

Becoming an effective opposition party requires the Senate GOP to elect a fresh conservative leader who places American interests first. Replacing McConnell with a Republican of the same low-T caliber who puts Ukraine's needs above America's will do nothing but ensure the Senate GOP will continue to lose at every turn.
