McConnell privately told aides that Trump committed impeachable offenses: Reports

While President Donald Trump and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have been allies on several key issues, tensions have reportedly been rising behind the scenes for years.

That animosity appears to have reached a new level this week, according to reports that claim the top Senate Republican supports Democrats in their latest move to impeach the president.

“Traumatic and entirely avoidable”

The Democratic-led House of Representatives succeeded in making Trump the only president to have been impeached twice on Wednesday — with the support of 10 Republican legislators.

Sources reportedly familiar with the situation asserted that McConnell has privately remarked that Trump committed impeachable offenses prior to last week’s riot on Capitol Hill.

McConnell’s wife, former Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, announced her resignation the day after the deadly siege of the U.S. Capitol building.

In a letter, Chao explained: “Yesterday, our country experienced a traumatic and entirely avoidable event as supporters of the President stormed the Capitol building following a rally he addressed. As I’m sure is the case with many of you, it has deeply troubled me in a way that I simply cannot set aside.”

According to the Washington Examiner, McConnell is not the only Republican leader showing support for impeachment.

“Will vote to impeach the president”

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, the House’s third-highest ranking GOP member, declared her intent to vote for impeachment ahead of Wednesday’s vote.

“The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled this mob, and lit the flame of this attack,” she said in a letter. “Everything that followed was his doing. The President could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence. He did not.”

Making her desires clear, she claimed that there “has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,” declaring that she “will vote to impeach the president.”

Another House Republican who is actively seeking Trump’s ouster is Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, who last week called on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment.

In reference to the Capitol Hill riot, he expressed the opinion that “the president abdicated his duty to protect the American people and the people’s house, he invoked and inflamed passions that only gave fuel to the insurrection that we saw.”

  1. What happened to innocent until proven guilty the left seems to have forgotten that and we all know that Antifa was responsible for the riots!!

    1. Mitch McConnell is a rat and all the rest of the politicians who blame Trump when everyone knows it was antifa. How naive can one be? This is political. The liberals just don’t care for Trump and will wait for an opportunity to bash him!! Shame, shame, shame!!

  2. It doesn’t surprise me. I don’t like Mitch or his Chinese wife. I’m sure they are in bed with the Chinese. That’s my opinion.

    1. I once thought Mitch was a strong pro Republican that was for the people of this great Country America but he has been taken over by the Chinese too n I feel his wife has had the greatest influence on him n his age also plays a big part again that’s my thought,n maybe I shouldn’t say this but there is a lot mind influences during bed partnering even in marriages! Think about it ,!!!❤️🇺🇸🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

      1. Also this is another example why we need term limits ,you take people like Mitch n many Politicians that are up in years n that on both sides ,Republican n Democrats alike just don’t get it ,take crazy Pelosi ,i,just take a look around n start checking these Politicians that are loosing it n tell me if I’m wrong !🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️🇺🇸

        1. No your not wrong. And I have said for a long time that they should have a term limit in the whole White house!! I am sick of “We The People” getting used all the time by these people. They line their pockets and couldn’t care less about our American people. Most are so old they should not be serving anything but McDonald’s.

  3. There’s nothing different in the make-up of Mitch McConnell, or for that matter, many of the Republican ‘turn coats’. They are “survivalists” — fish swimming in the SWAMP. Remember, a politician’s main drive is survival i.e., the next election. While Trump was President, he could (and did) protect them. Now, after probably the “crookedest” election in modern history, he is no longer able to offer this service. Last night, my wife turned to me and asked “what can we do”? I had to truthfully answer, “There’s really NOTHING we can do because the ‘crooks’ have inherited the “power” and the means to control it!! I truly wonder if America, as we remember it, will survive :^(

  4. It just amazes me on how cowardly the vast majority of “SO CALLED” Republican Politicians are. For over 4 years they never stood up, as a Party, in in support of our President. My advice, vote them out and replace with newer, younger Republicans.

    1. I would also like to say, be careful about what you post online. It would not surprise me at all if people don’t start showing up at peoples homes. Jobs and try to make life very hard on us because of our support for Trump.

      1. I am not worried about that, I am worried about the new so-called President coming in and what is going to happen to our country. I don’t write anything I am afraid of, just the truth. Not only that, but I am afraid for America right now and our gun rights, and our free speech. And so many more things this man might do. And what Nancy Pelosi is up to, I am sure it is not good for the people of America.

    2. I agree with you. Most serving in the White House should not even be there. Most of them are so old and are just there to line their pockets. I am sick of all these old people in the Senate and etc. They need a term limit. So when the next time, and time to vote for all these people, I hope we all go out and vote and get some younger people in and pray they have backbone.

  5. Mitch was an enemy to our President!

    Until he resigns as Leader thee red RNC will not supported by me and a whole lot of other people!

    I will be registered as an Independent
    Now!

  6. He a turtle 🐢 that is a traitor to America 🇺🇸 he and his ccp wife are corrupt as Swallwell screwing a plant from China 🇨🇳 least he got laid

  7. This is typical for republicans. They do not have the mentality or the courage to stand together and win. They are always looking out for number one, themselves.
    There is a huge amount of miscalculations in their decision making in this impeachment matter. In this matter people will not forget, their next campaign will not be like 2016 & 2020.
    Voters wallets will not be opened to them & the voting booths will yield a very different outcome for many of them.

    1. First the demonrats planned a great coup of stealing the election, then they paid off their crooked cronies, then they planned this phony impeachment with no real grounds and planned the Capitol rioting to blame it on republicans, have u guys not seen the video where 6 Antifa busses were coming into the capitol? How about when the police stood by idly in the halls of the capitol while Antifa members and BLM came in, how about when cop moved a boulder and let rioters in very calmly? How about when a white rioter who got caught who admitted he got paid to riot, probably others too, this was all planned so the demonrats could blame republicans and Donald Trump, it was rigged just like the election and everything else by the Demonrats, there is no Evil large enough they will not invent to further their neurotic agenda!!! All to gain power! We have to stop them!!!

      1. This is exactly my thoughts even before I read your comment. I believe they have some people working and planning the next moves to take or block the Republicans, therefore some very evil unscrupulous things are happening. Take the election, it wasn’t just one way of cheating but several. Getting the Dominion machines set up took time and planning it all out. Pelosi started that coinciding with the virus a long time before the election.

      2. I agree with you. The Democrats are going to prove to us Americans just who they are and how they can ruin America, and its people. I do not believe for one minute, that President Trump had anything to do with what happened at the White House. Why are they not saying about all the looting and burning police cars and smashing stores never brought up? That Trump had nothing to do with that, but you don’t hear about them, do you?

  8. Trump did not cause this. You democrats did. Look at what you did to this man for 4 friggin years plus. Nancy’s only job for 4 years along with the rest of the dems. was attacking the president every single day constantly on all the networks AND THE MEDIA. The media lied so much with disinformation every single day. The Obama people left over were releasing

  9. Brian, If this is impeachable offense of the president then not only is Schumer and most of the Democrats Pelosi should all be impeached and removed from office. They have committed much worse inciting of insurrection then President Trump ever did that because they’re Democrats nothing is ever said about that. We need to get rid of Schumer, Pelosi, and most of the Democrats in the House and Senate and Mitch McConnell and some of the Republicans also. The problem we have we no longer have representation of the people for the people by the people we have rich politicians that of lost touch with reality.

    1. I agree. I think everyone of them should immediately be impeached the same way they unjustly impeached Trump. It needs to happen because they think they are above the law and Trump is bad no matter what and they don’t have to answer for anything from smashing and destroying emails to cheating in the Presidential election. Until someone starts paying this will not stop.

  10. All these Republican Traitors have shown their true colors ,their in it not for the people of America that voted for them n they are very disappointed in them that they didn’t upheld their duty in representing what the people expected them to do on behalf of us all! They have joined the corrupt gang of thieves n that is the self absorbed Democrats that want to change everything this great Country stands for one Nation under God with Liberty n Justice for all n to completely destroy n to rid this Nation of the Constitution that so many have lost their lives with their blood shed n much more ! We must stand tall without adding more blood shed ,we must be calm ,be smart n be true to America in the best way we can,continue to pray,God is still in charge ,don’t lose the faith,pray has power!🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️🇺🇸

  11. I think it so sad that they all reap all the good trump did and they should be a shamed of how they all turned on our president. But they didn’t just turn on him they turned on the American people. They are hiding the fact that antifia did this . I hope that our god makes each one of them answer for what they did to our country. And I think they all deserve what pelosi’s is going to do to them . They for got that they will keep their rich lives and support killing the very people that voted for them . There is nothing they could have done worst than to starve the people that loved our country. To you linsey graham you deserve for your people of your state to keep acting you so that you can’t forget who’s very lives you have destroyed and live in your fine home . But you should be made see the people suffer and know it was by your hand that they did so . And Mitch McConnell I hope that you and Nancy lie in the poison that you created , and you think that our Jesus Christ will forgive you , I really done think he will grant you the mercy you think you deserve. Your all attacked the very people that trusted you. And I know I could spread hate to you and say ugly things , but I know with the faith that I have in my savior , he knows you and sees what you are doing to his people , till I want have to ask that you be punished , cuz our god will take care of this . And not you of you have the power to overcome our almighty . You are in a dead end job , you will suffer . I thank my savior everyday that I don’t have to do anything, cuz he will take of you . And that’s enough for me and acting like you are Christians and going to church isn’t going to save you for the very lives you choose to destroy. No matter how you cheated , and no matter how powerful you think u are here on this earth, god is on the throne something you know nothing about . Our savior will take care of all you have done . Hope you can go to bed at night and sleep cuz I know I can . I believe in the real god and it tells us in the Bible that he will show all . But I’m not going to feel hate for you cuz then I want be a Christian . But you have been spoken on in our bibles . What I really feel for you is shame . I’m a shamed of what you stand for cuz a real republican could never shame his country. We need to pray for you all, cuz in the Bible one of the greatest sin is greed and that you all. I will rest cuz your judgement day is coming and I want have to do anything to rush it. I feel shame that I gave you that much power . May god help you and have mercy on the ones like you ! May god show u what his storm is really like ! We all need to pray for these people that I have spoke of. We are true Americans!!!

  12. So sorry that my phone changed some of my words , but to say short and to the point . To all of the American people, we know what linsey Graham did and what McConnell has been doing . Also pence . But we need to be better those these I have spoken of, they think that they have done nothing to the people, but greed is such a sin , and they forget that our savior helped them to get where they are at today . And we the people need to remember , that no matter what they do and what they have done , someone more powerful than them is going to be their judge , and when we go to bed at night we have no regrets and we answer to Jesus Christ and I will not let them bring me to their lower level . They will have to stand before our savior and we need to pray that Jesus has mercy on their souls . I’m so a shamed of them and what it done to me is break my heart becuz we trusted them to do their jobs and they turned becuz they choose theirself over the people that they vowed to protect. I pray for each one of them , and I know if I spread hate and choose myself over someone else that I will have to answer for . We know that they have destroyed gods country. And we might not recover from their damage, but I know that god loves me and I have the faith he will protect me from the very evil they have choose to stand for . And mr graham I feel for you , becuz your very state didn’t want you and you will have to lay down at night knowing that your state will not help you in anyway. I’m going to say this , may you get mercy for your souls , no matter what any of you have done . A true Christian stands for what Jesus wants us to do . They can close our church , but I can still have my savior he is on the throne . I just hope and pray for my country to survive them and I will cuz I have Jesus on my side , I pray that you can face the people and also know the storm that is coming. I feel so sorry for you people !! As I pray to god , I ask him to forgive us from our sins, cuz we aren’t apart of their very evil. Walk with god and keep the faith of your savior . And remember they might have gated communities and protect, but they will have to stand before Jesus Christ just like us , and they can’t lie and steal from him . Let’s give our selfs to god and trust him to take care of this evil. Don’t let them take that away from us . So may we walk with Jesus and let them choose . Walk with Jesus and know that nothing they do can degrade gods people . Cuz our savior knows who they are and he will punish those that have tried to destroy us !!! Walk with god you true Americans, cuz we know they will answer .

  13. If people would download and
    read Trumps speech at that rally, you would know that during the entire speech he emphasized peace, and law abiding , there was nothing there to incite the riot on the Capitol! People acted on their own!

    1. ABSOLUTELY!! With the $$ of Soros, Clintons, Pelosi, and Chuck!!!! L watched our Pres. make his speech, so know what he said. Those cowards in the chambers are just scared of the PEOPLE and GOD coming after them!!!

  14. he just ended the republican party he thinks the people who voted republican voted for the party no you clown they voted for TRUMP not the party and a good 90% will leave the party or at the very least not vote at all thanks you clown

  15. The actions at the capitol were in response to the approved riots the Democrats and Republicans allowed in all the Demacratic controlled cities all summer.What happened to ” people do what they do” Nancy ? She approved of antifa and B.L.M.riots.She should be held responsible for the mostly peaceful riots in the District of China.

  16. All posts are right on target! But—- any effort to impeach Biden will not be brought to the floor by congress as long as Piglosi is the speaker. She has to bring it to the floor for the vote. Won’t happen as long as she is in power!

  17. Now that Mcconnel’s wife has resigned from Trump’s cabinet, he doesn’t seem to care what he does to Trump. Big mistake. Trump will rebound; he’s a survivor and thriver!

  18. Mc Connell can be recalled Why hasnt the rep in KY.doing something.Has the world grown scared of their shadow.What happened to our men.They are do nothings.Have lost respect of the cowards.makes me glad I am single or would be soon.They are to protect our families but all can do is mouth.no action,no fight,no love for their freedom.suffering for their families and self .Time to put up or shut up.At least try
