McConnell slams House over Trump impeachment

McConnell slams House over Trump impeachment

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has claimed the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump as ’the most rushed, least thorough and most unfair’ in American history. Speaking from the Senate floor on Thursday morning, McConnell said that the Democrats have set a ’low bar’ with their vote and threatened future presidencies with the risk of impeachment over basic disagreements.

Pelosi and the Democrats have seriously screwed up. Saying they need "more evidence" is just an admission that they didn't have it when they rushed this Shampeachment.

The partisanship in this country has gotten out of control. We either need a strong third party (very unlikely) or we need a cultural shift where we return to the days when Democrats and Republicans could disagree with each other but still work together to accomplish common goals for the good of the country. Surely there must be some things that both sides agree are good for the country.

I wonder if she's holding out for a Democrat turnover in the Senate in 2021. 🤔

Instead of calling it an “impeachment” vote it should have been called what it really is, a “who is unhappy that Trump won the 2016 election” vote.

You think? Having no evidence whatsoever while not only bringing criminal charges but in this case making up entirely new ones based entirely around blatantly unconstitutional principles while giving speeches about conspiracy theories which aren't even alleged in said charges let alone proven might do that.

@Herbie That's exactly what I was thinking. Waiting out until 2021 would be the way to actually get it passed, other than blackmailing Republican candidates. I wouldn't be surprised if a controversy "leaked" after this vote on someone like Tulsi, since she voted present, or if something came out on a Senator after the Senate vote.

Moscow Mitch that decrepit old turd is such a blatantly corrupt partisan piece of shit that he should be shot as a traitor for protecting his party over the American people. And his wife should also be brought up on charges for her illicit dealings with family owned businesses in China. Both are dispicible human beings and the good people of Kentucky deserve better.

Now is the time to start writing articles of impeachment on the next Democrat President. Just make it a form letter and write in the name on inauguration day.

Saying it's the most rushed in history is so idiotic. There have only been 3 impeachments and in terms of speed this one is right in the middle. So fake news narrative 1 debunked. The complete lack of concern by Republicans over our election security is astounding. Mitch refuses to vote on secure elections bill's, Russia had already interfered once and now our own president is undermining our election but no this is just a sham right? Do your fucking job. Do some fucking duediligence.

well the biggest point is compared to Bush or Clinton or Obama, they never reached a rate higher than 30 percent all at 29 or 30 in relative spots in their administration. Trump is nearly 50% higher than that at 45% in polls just out 2 days ago. Yes support has dipped for it. Yes trumps approval rating gained some points too. But that first fact that Trump is so decisive the impeachment rate is at almost half the country tells you how much more Americans believe he has got to go.
