McConnell Sabotages Trump Again

McConnell needs to lose his GOP leadership role.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declined to offer an opinion on whether former President Donald Trump should face criminal charges in connection with the January 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol, as reported by The Hill.

According to Newsmax, when asked about the possibility of Trump being indicted following an announcement by the former president that special counsel Jack Smith had informed him of a grand jury probe related to the events of January 6, McConnell stated that he does not intend to “critique” Republican candidates for the presidency.

It is worth noting that about a month after the attack occurred two years ago, McConnell strongly criticized Trump during the Senate floor’s second impeachment trial. He asserted that “there is no question that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day. The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president.”

Nevertheless, on Wednesday, McConnell clarified that he has consistently refrained from commenting on various candidates running for the presidency each week. He expressed his views at the time of the impeachment trial but prefers not to delve into critiquing individual presidential contenders, according to The Hill’s report.

Federal prosecutors have charged at least 1,060 individuals for their actions on the day of the U.S. Capitol attack, and over 600 of them have pleaded guilty, as compiled by National Public Radio’s database.
