There has been a question for some time as to how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would treat an impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. First, he talked about the Democrats’ impeachment addiction. Then he said he would have no choice, but to try Trump in the Senate followed up with: “How long you’re on it is a whole different matter.”
Now, with a campaign ad produced for McConnell’s re-election campaign, the Senate Majority Leader seems to be sending the signal that he won’t let the president go down.
In the brief video, McConnell accuses House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of being “in the clutches of a left-wing mob” pushing her toward impeaching the president, while promising to stand in her way.
“All of you know your Constitution. The way that impeachment stops is with a Senate majority with me as Majority Leader,” he declares.
He closes by saying, “But I need your help,” as he requests campaign donations.
McConnell is facing serious primary challengers, but is looking to help himself with this pledge to help the president against what amounts to a mob trying to reverse the results of an election that happened almost three years ago. Why that is the case is becoming more and more clear as information regarding prominent Democrats and their offspring profiting bigly from deals made while they were in office comes to light.
In truth, members of McConnell’s family have benefited as well in dealings with foreign companies while he has been in office, but all indications are that they actually worked for the money and were involved with the businesses, not just names on the board of directors wall.
As more information regarding members of the Biden and Pelosi families and staffs surfaces, the final execution of any impeachment movement may well be doomed. That remains to be seen. Regardless, it looks like any Articles of Impeachment will share the same fate as a lot of legislation that heads to the Senate to die.
