Is this real? Is Mitch McConnell supporting the impeachment of Trump?

Just read this and see this as a crazy turn around. I can see why he'd want to deflect the blow back that the GOP are getting, but I never thought I'd see this.

I had saw it somewhere that he believed impeaching someone who only has 9 days left (probably news days ago) is time-consuming and not worth it, why not just focus on inauguration for the next president.

Yeah.

I hadn't heard that. Interesting. What I have been hearing is that Mitch feels that an impeachment would allow the GOP to distance themselves from Trump and that that would be a good thing. Meh, we'll see what happens.

This could lead to some positive reforms and change within the Republican party and save a sinking ship.

Indeed it might be. The first thing they need to do?

Everyone in congress? Primary them all out. All of them. Yes, even you too, Romney. Oh, you're so against Trump, yet you've voted lockstep with him. :lol: Boy, are you a great leader or what...

Politicians support whatever keeps them in office. He isn't stupid and knows Trump is a sinking ship. Trump and his insurrection pawns marching around inside of the Capitol conveniently offered an out for any Republican who pushed his conspiracy and realized they would prefer their career instead.

Most politicians put their career first. Also I think it's finally sunk in that Trump is a bottomless pit of demand for loyalty and he will never be satisfied.

believe it or not, not all republicans like trump, follow his every word, worship him, etc.  some actually care about the people and the dangers people can bring about unto other people.  in other words, voting can bring about the right person being in office that the people voted in to do the job they voted them in there for. it's rare for this to happen, but it does happen, so we get it right every so often.  for the other times, welp...

Yeah, I don't think I suggested every republican is a Trump follower. I'm pretty much talking about Mitch specifically. And, yes, voting can bring the right person to office, just like the American people voted Biden in. I'm glad we're in agreement.

Nailed it with this bunny.

This is an example of a politician using his conscience to reach a decision and not just blindly following party lines or instructions.

This shows integrity.

This is why senators must be free to think for themselves and reach their own decisions.

Yeah, you mean like Mitt romney? Who cast a single vote against Trump last year
...but when it came to literally everything else, was in lockstep. Wow. :lol: Now that's someone who resists.

He resists all the time (except when he doesnt resist)
Lets forget the good he does and only consider the bad.
You are showing lack of judgement, people vote the way their conscience tells them and everyone is different.
Just because you dont like the way they vote does not mean they are bad.
It is easy to condemn people, you dont know their thinking and their concerns you just think you do.
If it really bugs you run for president

You are being melodramatic and twisting words to fit your own prejudice.
You want a politician to do everything you want them to do or they are not fit to serve, well life dont work that way.
You are demanding senators become quislings.
You need to do a bit of growing up you want senators to be perfect all the time and if they are not they become evil in your eyes.
I suggest you run for public office if you dislike the senators so much.
How about you showing everyone how to be a senator.
Or do you prefer to sit around on your ass and moan about everyone.
Do something to make the world better rather than something to rip it apart.

Sorry for assumign that's <i>their JOB</i>. Whoooops! I thought senators were supposed to represent their PEOPLE. Not their PARTY. Silly me. :lol:
Also come back when you're done with strawmanning.

The fact that a lot of money people are pulling denotations from the GOP politicians who tried to stop the vote count might have something to do with it.

I don't know. I see so many discussions in the forums here, where someone provides links to a news story and then someone complains that it's not from a valid news source. So, given the current conversation, and for the future, it's a good thing to know what news sources you will accept as evidence. So, again, I ask, do you consider NBC an acceptable news source?

The leftists in the forum who don't agree with me, always say my source is bad and they can't trust it, like Youtube, leftists don't like Youtube !
I don't really care because all sources are acceptable.
If leftists think it's untrue it's just their problem !
If one day, i make a mistake and give a fake info, i will apologise.

So, you're saying this source is acceptable. Again, I'm perseverating on this because so often I'll be having a discussion and I'll post a link that others will discount out of hand. I'm just trying to find common ground. You just claimed that "all sources are acceptable". I want to know if that's actually the case.

An 8yr old girl of Chinse ancestry that you think was recruited as an agent of the PRC, without any evidence on your part, does in fact reek with racism.
But then, you're are an ass licker of the Mango Mushroom Man, so I imagine the concept of evidence is outside your range.

Thinking, without a shred of evidence, that an 8yr old girl of Chinse ancestry was recruited by the PRC to spy on McConnel does come across as racist.
