McConnell Allegedly Threatened President Trump If He Chose Pardon Assange, Snowden, and Others

On Tuesday evening, President Donald Trump granted clemency to 143 individuals before he left office on Wednesday morning.

According to a bombshell report however, the President was under a substantial amount of pressure for who he should and shouldn’t pardon from Republican leadership including Senate Leader Mitch McConnell.

During his primetime show, Fox News host Tucker Carlson broke the massive news when he said President Trump was threatened by McConnell with impeachment if he chose to pardon Julian Assange.

“Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the leader of Republicans in the Senate, has sent word over the White House – If you pardon Julian Assange we are much more likely to convict you in an impeachment trial,” Carlson said. “Well, is it legal to hold that over a president’s head?  We’re not lawyers, we don’t know.  It’s certainly wrong.  But more than that, it tells you everything about their priorities.”

WATCH:

McConnell has proven to be a total backstabber in recent months considering he completely abandoned President Trump after the President had helped him win reelection.

According to new reports, McConnell has joined Democrats like Chuck Schumer and reportedly supports the idea from barring President Trump from ever running again.

Mark Halperin on Newsmax reported: “Mitch McConnell and establishment Republicans reportedly don’t want to see Trump on the ballot in 2024. McConnell’s latest move in the senate may be about not only to convict the president but to pass with the majority something that would bar him from holding office again.”

McConnell is beginning to be more vocal about his hatred for President Trump considering he too slammed the President during his own speech on Tuesday.

“The last time the Senate convened, we had just reclaimed the Capitol from violent criminals who tried to stop congress from doing our duty. The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the President and other powerful people,” McConnell said. “And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government which they did not like.”

“But we pressed on. We stood together and said an angry mob would not get veto power over the rule of law in our nation, not even for one night. We certified the people’s choice for their 46th president,” McConnell added.

McConnell’s attack on the President is completely unwarranted considering President Trump specifically told his supporters to march over to the Capitol building “peacefully and patriotically.”

“We’re going to walk down to the Capitol — and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women and we’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them,” President Trump said to the crowd. “Because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong.”

“We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated. Lawfully slated,” he added.

“I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard,” Trump said. “Today, we will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections.”

Trump never really learned that these Congressional Swamp creatures have no honor and they lie like breathing. He didn’t pardon Assange but now watch McConnell and the GOP convict him in an illegal impeachment anyway. Every noted Constitutional scholar has said the Senate has no authority to impeach a president already out of office.

The new Deplorables Party may not win a single election. But if it DESTROYS THE GOP, then I’m satisfied with that. What a bunch of snakes and traitors.

Who the hell is this clown to say “Trump has been diminished”? Newsflash Dude he won re-election minus fraud. Should he not run, and if the country is fortunate enough too see a 2024, the choice of We the Deplorables is Gov Kristi Noem ,Americas Governor, you can take that to the bank.

I’m not sure which is more reprehensible, that McConnell would do such a thing or that Trump caved to it.

The Democrat and Republican Parties Downfall is in sight when the Patriot Party has been registered. This is why I would like to see a World Wide Fan Page for President Trump. He has BILLIONS of Followers across the World From North Korea right around to the Southern Point of South America, Africa and Europe Included.

The only way those words are a call to insurrection is if you’ve been eating the wrong kind of mushrooms again. And if they do convict him, I hope he sues. The only punishment the Constitution offers is removal from office, newsflash, he’s no longer in office.
