McConnell admits Trump 'responsible' for insurrection

Recommended Posts

after voting against conviction

 

Top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell delivered a scathing rebuke of Donald Trump on Saturday despite voting to acquit the former president on an impeachment charge, saying he was responsible for the January 6 mob assault on the US Capitol.

"There's no question -- none -- that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day," McConnell said in a speech following the vote that led to Trump's acquittal.

"These criminals were carrying his banners. Hanging his flags. And screaming their loyalty to him."

He called Trump's actions leading up to the siege "a disgraceful dereliction of duty."

McConnell went further and suggested Trump could face charges now that he is out of office.

"President Trump is still liable for everything he did while he was in office, as an ordinary citizen," he said. "He didn't get away with anything yet."

The Republican from Kentucky, however, said he voted to acquit Trump on a charge of inciting insurrection because, he said, it is unconstitutional to convict a president in an impeachment trial after he has left office.

McConnell is so full of shit

all hes doing is trying to straddle the fence. hes trying to maintain dons delusional base, while mollifying the moderates by saying don is indeed guilty. he knows full well impeachment after leaving office is constitutional, he just wants to speak out of both sides of his mouth

this strategy is going to severely hurt republicanism going forward. they are going to let trump remain a voice in the party, infuriating the majority of republican and independent voters who now despise trumpism, and whatever mitch does wont go far enough to satisfy dons delusional base that will insist on more, more, more far right wing bullshit from the party. the split will continue indefinitely and cause them to lose many elections they otherwise would have won

fuck em. i want balanced gubmint, to keep the crazy dems in check. but todays republicanism has turned legitimately evil, with many examples how they have no moral compass whatsoever, dont care about the constitution, and dont give a fuck about the american people. the dems are insane, but insane isnt as bad as just plain evil, so fuck the republicans. i hope they stay in the desert for a long time until they are forced to change

I don’t disagree. I do appreciate those that line up behind him and other GOP are some of the first to flip the moment he says something they don’t like.
