What Mitch McConnell Said About Senate Dems During Impeachment Vote Has The Left Shaking In Their Boots

(Tea Party PAC) – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program on Thursday, and what he had to say about the possibility of Senate Democrats voting against impeaching President Trump has no doubt made folks on the left very nervous.

However, if we’re honest, we all know that impeachment is going to fail in the Republican controlled Senate. Liberals in the House know this too. So why continue to push for impeachment if you ultimately know it’s going to fail?

Well, there are likely two reasons. One, they are too far into this circus to stop now, and secondly, to appease their hardcore base voters with the illusion of taking action against Trump. Now they can make it look like they desperately tried to get “justice” against an evil, corrupt president, but were thwarted from doing good because of wicked Republicans.

Anyway, here’s more about McConnell’s comments from Breitbart:

On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that he wouldn’t be surprised if “one or two” Democrats voted against convicting President Trump in the Senate.

McConnell said, “My hope is that there won’t be a single Republican who votes for either of these articles of impeachment. And Sean, it wouldn’t surprise me if we got one or two Democrats. It looks to me over in the House, the Republicans seem to be solid and the Democrats seem to be divided.”

Democratic Rep. Van Drew has stated that he will be voting no on impeachment, so there’s a few Democrats who recognize what this fiasco is really about.

Here’s more on this from USA Today:

Democratic Rep. Jeff Van Drew said Wednesday that he will vote against articles of impeachment that outline the case for President Trump’s removal from office, becoming the first Democrat to publicly say he will not vote with his colleagues.

Van Drew, a Democrat who represents a district in New Jersey that favored Trump by five points in 2016, has been a vocal opponent to the impeachment effort examining whether Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. Trump denies the allegations and has called the inquiry a “hoax.”

Van Drew said that he did not think Trump’s conduct was grounds for impeachment and that impeachment would only end up helping the president in 2020.

“I don’t see anything there worthy of actually taking a president out of office,” he said. “I’m concerned about splitting our nation apart.”

He said he believed there were other mechanisms for removing a president from office. An election, he noted, could do this. Van Drew said one of his biggest concerns was emboldening Trump because an impeachment trial in the GOP-controlled Senate will likely not lead to his removal from office.

“I always say, you got to really be careful what you wish for in life,” he said. “I think (Trump) actually gets help with this, to be honest with you. He’s going to be able to go all over the country and say he is found not guilty.”

This just goes to show that not all Democrats are totally on board with every aspect of the party’s platform, which is a good thing. There shouldn’t be 100 percent adherence to the Republican Party’s platform from conservatives either.

Believe it or not, there are bad policies on both sides of the aisle, which is why every person has to be well informed and make up their own mind on each individual issue.

  1. I envision the Democratic Party’s “clown car” being PUSHED over the cliff by the Left Wing Liberal base. It’s a L O N G way D O W N to the BOTTOM. I can almost hear the “clown car” CRASH now . . . Is that SENILE NANCY Crying for HELP? Better call the EMTs . . . or maybe the LAW ENFORCEMENT to haul these braindead DRUNKARDS off to PRISON. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (KEEP America Great Again).

  2. Amen to all those well mentioned reply’s. The Democrats are a hateful group of anti Americans and could not care less about we Americans. No wonder this country is being decided . They, and the MSM are ruining everything about what and how this country was created. It was a gift from God. The only other greater gift was His Son, Jesus Christ, which is the greatest gift of ALL. God Blessed America then and nearly 3 years ago, gave USA another opportunity to turn from our sinful ways and return Christianity back in our daily lives, when He chose Donald J. Trump to lead us out of a shameful life style. God has blessed the USA, once again. Let’s NOT blow it. Vote Republicans in the next election and give President Trump what he needs to “MAGA”. A Christian nation that so many have sacrificed so much for. Be prayful for his safety and may God grant him the wisdom he needs to make good decisions for ALL.

  3. All these people do is talk it to death, the demorats are so off the wall there is no hope for any of them. The republicans sit there and do nothing. The only one that gets things done is President Trump against all odds God bless him. He told us the people he was going to get RID OF ALL THE SWAMP RATS POND SCUM. No buddy will say it but the Fagotts have taken over the country, look at who is on the main scream media scary right and don’t forget the crotch grabbers in Hollywood. God Bless the U.S.A.

  4. Fight fire with fire. An eye for an eye. If they were able to obtain phone records let’s get Schiff, Pelosi, Nader, Clinton and Barack. It all started with them!

    • I agree, get all of their phone records. I am a Republican AND HAVE BEEN FOR MANY, MANY YEARS BUT THEY NEED TO GROW SOME HAIR ON.THEIR CHEST AND STRIKE BACK to Obama, Brennan, Clapper,Nader, Schiff, and Pelosi. The Reps are too forgiving. The dems are war-mongers. and they have no place to go except down.My Christmas present is to take all this crazy Dems down and KICK THEM out the door. Dont forget to take their keys to the kingdom!

  5. If the whistle blower was so concern then let the coward come forth. He would have to in the judicial court system. Who is Shiff fooling that doesn’t know who it is. Bring him forth and he’ll be proven a liar. Nader doesn’t even look awake. Did you catch the video where a Republican was saying they have no proof and the guy next to him elbowed him to bang his gravel. Like it’s not fixed. Right! I agree with Bill Hensley. Stop wasting OUR money . Why should they get paid $220,00/yr for this BS. Why is their salary so much anyway. They don’t do much for the Americans they’re supposed to be working for. Cut their salaries in half and make them attend their meeting. Setting a 2term for everyone should cut down on their power just like the reason for the 2yr term for president. If they want a crook go after Biden, his son, Hillary and Barack. Did they mention that Barack withheld funds to Ukraine but that wasn’t a crime and thousands died for that. But that was ok he’s a Democrat. Can’t believe anyone would vote for Biden after getting the Ukrainian fellow fired for his drug addicted son at 50,000/month and he can’t pay child support. Where’s the legal system for him? Doesn’t exist for any Democrat. It’s a real shame. Did I mention I was a Democrat my whole life and this house converted me to Republican? Wake up you’re losing people not gain ash…..s!

  6. There are a couple of Senate republicans that vote to Impeach Trump. Romey will vote to impeach and so will the other senator that has said he was running against Trump. If the democrats vote to kick him out of office then there should be a public trial with Nadler, Shiff, the Whistleblower and all the other liars being called the Senate to testify then the republicans can show what a circus this is. The republicans need to play their games and show how the democrats lie.

    • I agree, that the REPS NEED TO TURN THIS BACK AROUND AND BITE THEM IN THE ASS. Pelosi whispered one day under her breathe that she wouldn’t allow her taxes or bank records be looked at. They are “ALL” crooked. Send some of these jerks home after removing them from office. WE ALL know that Eric Ciaramella (SP) who was the whistle blower. Schiff left the paper sitting on top of his desk. I’VE said all along, there really isnt a whistle blower. It was a set-up job by Dems and it FAILED greatly, just like all the other games-kavanaugh, mueller, investigation upon investigation has proven “NOTHING WRONG!” My Christmas gift is to see the trouble makers resign. Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler (did U see him asleep and drooling?). What a damn joke these people are. And it is our $35,000,000.used. Start charging them?

  7. The Dems are out of control, they are the American cartel, criminals robbing the USA taxpayers money , spending our money like there’s no tomorrow , it’s time to stop there whining nonsense , they are supposed to work for the People, not steal USA blind and enrich there selves for decades, let’s pass term limits and vote those crooks out and take their salary for life away!!! The common worker in US retires in poverty! The Politician in Us retires rich on us taxpayers Money ,!!! That is so wrong and needs to stop!!! So wake up USA and get those crooked Dems out !!!

    • Bill Hensley, YOU SAID IT ALL! THANK YOU, NOW IF ANY “RESONABLE AMERICAN” TAKE HEED IN YOUR WORDS, THEN MAYBE, MAYBE WE’LL SEE CHANGES MADE TO OUR GOVERNMENT!!

  8. This is nothing more than a stall and diversion to keep Americas attention off the things for which they were elected. They have neglected the safety of the American citizens and sovereignty of the U.S.
    American jobs are being taken by illegals and Americans health is threatened by diseases that were eradicated in the U.S. but are being brought back across the border illegals.
    They swore to uphold OUR CONSTITUTION when elected but all they have done is try to destroy it and our REPUBLIC.
