McConnell Makes Major Announcement Regarding Potential Trump Impeachment

Before the dust had even settled at the U.S. Capitol Building after a couple hundred supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the place, Democrats began fabricating the narrative that the president called for it and, thus, he must now be impeached. Again.

Thankfully, Mitch McConnell isn’t going for it.

The New York Post reports:

The Senate will take no action on House Democrats’ effort to re-impeach President Trump until after he is out of office — making next week’s possible vote on the question moot before it even begins.

Under a timeline issued Friday to Senate colleagues, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said any House resolution on the matter could not be transmitted to the upper chamber until Jan. 19, based on the body’s current calendar.

House impeachment managers could present their case — which would accuse Trump of “inciting an insurrection” at the Capitol on Wednesday — to the assembled Senate that same day, McConnell’s memo noted.

But under existing impeachment rules, debate and votes could not begin until 1 p.m. the next day after — making the earliest possible moment for an impeachment vote one hour after President-elect Joe Biden is sworn into office at noon on Jan. 20.

“The Senate trial would therefore begin after President Trump’s term has expired,” McConnell wrote.

Let us be very clear. Trump NEVER called for violence on January 6th. Never. That can’t be repeated enough. 

In fact, during his speech, the word he used to describe a march to the Capitol was “peaceful.”

Here’s what Trump said: 

We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. Today we will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections, but whether or not they stand strong for our country, our country.

Sadly, this doesn’t mean unhinged Democrats aren’t going to try everything in their power to make Trump the first twice-impeached president in our history.

Stay tuned…

So they can’t impeach him if he is no longer president right? So why waste the time nd the money? Why do these people keep wasting our money? And why are we not impeaching Pelosi & Harris for inciting violence this past summer? They actually bailed out rioters…WTF?

This time, when we bury the republican party, we need to have prospective members of the new “Patriot Party” sign a covenant with teeth; Fully pro life, fiscally conservative, originalist interpretation, understanding that we are NOT A DEMOCRACY(which is mob rule) BUT A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC! In the absence of the above, on a sustained basis, YOU ARE NOT IN OR PART OF THIS PATRIOT PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
