The impeachment of Trump moves to Senate, and McConnell will reportedly command the GOP to vote FOR conviction.

Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
(TCP News) Mitch McConnell has always seemed a traitor to the party with more interest in how the party can serve McConnell than how McConnell can serve the party and America. Mitch has never seemed to like trump, never acted as if though Trump were the leader of the GOP. While McConnell racks up a mint for himself via his connections to China, he has paid mere lip-service to trump and his agenda.
Now that the tide has apparently turned, Mitch has also turned – turned his back on President Trump, while making a play that will fracture the Republican Party.
McConnell in a speech on the Senate floor stated:
“The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.”

From Zero Hedge:
“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 clear choice for their 46th president.
Tomorrow, President-elect Biden and Vice-President-elect Harris will be sworn in. We will have a safe and successful inauguration right here on the west front of the Capitol — the space that President Bush 41 called ‘democracy’s front porch.’ And then we’ll move forward.”
Except that anyone with a few brain cells to rub together KNOWS this was not the people’s choice.
Senator Rand Paul had some thoughts on this nonsense as well:
“I don’t often get asked my advice from leadership on how they should react, but my unsolicited suggestion would be this: They will destroy the Republican Party if leadership is complicit in impeachment, or if leadership votes for impeachment, they will destroy the party.”
“Impeachment is purely a partisan thing, it’s for the moral, ‘Oh I’m so much better than you, and you’re a bad person, because I’m so moral.’” Paul added, “These are the kind of people that are going to do this.”
“The impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of Republicans will leave the party.”
“This isn’t about, anymore, the electoral college,” Paul concluded.
“It’s about the future of the party, and if you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party, then guess what, millions of his fans will leave as well.”
Surprisingly enough, House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy will skip Trump’s departure ceremony in Maryland, opting to instead attend mass with Joe Biden. Mitch, unsurprisingly will also be with Biden.
If Mitch McConnell’s aim isn’t to destroy the Republican party from within – well, he is doing a great job of it.
