(Tea Party PAC) – President Trump recently released a list of presidential pardons and clemencies he was awarding a variety of different folks on Tuesday evening, and lots of individuals were hoping to see the name of Julian Assange on that list. Unfortunately, those folks are going to be massively disappointed today.
Yes, that’s right. No pardon for Assange. There was one for Steve Bannon. Another for infamous rapper Lil Wayne. But not a single thing for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who released a plethora of emails that were damaging to Hillary Clinton around the 2016 presidential race.
Before you come down hard on the president, however, there’s something you need to know. There’s a reason why Trump didn’t grant this particular pardon and it has nothing to do with him and everything to do with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
According to a new report from Gateway Pundit, McConnell threatened Trump saying that if he pardoned Assange, it would make it much more likely the Senate would convict him in an impeachment trial.
What a snake, right?
This isn’t all that shocking. McConnell is not a true patriot. He’s a member of the Swamp. He’s part of the very establishment the president sought to destroy. There are many individuals that McConnell wants to protect in order to further his own political ambitions.
Tucker Carlson covered this story on his program on Fox News Tuesday evening.
“Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the leader of Republicans in the Senate, has sent word over the White House – If you pardon Julian Assange we are much more likely to convict you in an impeachment trial. Well, is it legal to hold that over a president’s head? We’re not lawyers, we don’t know. It’s certainly wrong. But more than that, it tells you everything about their priorities,” Carlson said.

McConnell he has told allies he hopes never to speak to Mr. Trump again and is doing nothing to persuade senators to back him, instead calling the impeachment vote a matter of conscience. https://t.co/Jv1QFngSa4

There are a lot of establishment Republicans who are tickled pink that Donald Trump is now done with his presidency. They honestly do not care about the fact that Joe Biden is coming into the picture with an agenda that is designed to obliterate the way of life we love and enjoy. All that matters to them is having a cushy job where they get fat pockets off the backs of regular Americans.
It’s this kind of stuff that got Trump elected in the first place. They have learned nothing.
