Moscow Mitch preemptively acquits Trump

So much for that impartial “juror” malarkey some Senate Republicans are trying to use as their excuse for not answering the simple question of whether it’s okay for a president to try to force a foreign leader to help him politically by withholding promised funds. Moscow Mitch McConnell has told Republicans it’s a done deal: they’ll acquit.

“I will say, I’m pretty sure how it’s likely to end: If it were today I don’t think there’s any question it would not lead to a removal,” he said Tuesday. “So the question is how long does the Senate want to take? How long do the presidential candidates want to be here on the floor of the Senate instead of in Iowa and New Hampshire?” As if he’s in league with any one of the six Democrats running for president on impeachment. “And all of these other related issues that may be going on at the same time, it’s very difficult to ascertain how long this takes,” McConnell added. “I’d be surprised if it didn’t end the way the two previous ones did with the president not being removed from office.”

By “all of these other related issues” isn’t clear, but he’s probably talking about the government funding bills that have to be passed and Trump’s threats to shut the government down over impeachment. Seems that McConnell is willing to wield that threat too against Democrats. It’s an empty threat—he knows very well Democrats aren’t going to be blamed if the government shuts down—but he’ll use it.

The results back home in Kentucky’s gubernatorial election Tuesday night might give McConnell some pause about continuing this full embrace of Trump and his public promises to keep Trump in office no matter what. Embracing Trump didn’t work out so well for Matt Bevin, and McConnell is not popular in Kentucky, and never has been. It might finally be the time the state decides to break up with him.

After last night the little amphibious reaper should be very worried!! So much for being impartial to a fair process, he said he has not any of the transcripts, for Raphael’s and Donnitello’s sake do your damn job for the people not the tangerine turdmuffin, or maybe it’s your neck doesn’t protrude far enough from your shell to effectively read something other than a pizza take out

Moscow Mitch can’t see the difference between right and wrong, so what makes us think he can’t see that his future in politics are ending. Besides, he doesn’t care, him and his wife have made a bundle off of the American people.

Yeah, but in the meantime, sadly he’ll sneak as many corrupt Judges into the system that he can.

Well all the stuff comes out like his taxes any more shenanigans he will be one term president. And I guess Mitch has decided to retire. No loss. Time for some fresh thinking anyway
