Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is ready to take on the democrats. In fact, he’s downright antsy to destroy their articles of impeachment.
According to McConnell, democrats have “zero chance” of removing Trump from office.
McConnell appeared on Hannity to say “the case is so darn weak coming over from the House. We all know how it’s going to end.”
McConnell continued “There is no chance the president is going to be removed from office.”
Fox News elaborates:
McConnell also said he hoped that none of the members of his caucus would vote to remove the president from office, adding “it wouldn’t surprise me if we got one or two Democrats” to vote to acquit Trump of the charges of high crimes and misdemeanors.
He explained that the articles of impeachment would be different from ordinary legislation that makes its way from the House, in that: “We have no choice but to take it up. But we’ll be working through this process hopefully in a fairly short period of time, in total coordination with the White House counsel’s office and the people who are representing the president, in the way all of the Senate.”
McConnell spoke as the House Judiciary Committee prepared to vote to send two articles of impeachment to the full House of Representatives following a marathon hearing in which seemingly no topic – from Hunter Biden’s rampant drug use to a Republican congressman’s past drunken-driving arrest – was off-limits.
Unfortunately, we can’t get through this process fast enough. Every day we spend talking about impeachment, we’re wasting valuable resources. But Democrats don’t care. They’ve developed tunnel vision, and their tunnel wants Trump out.
Dissecting Democrat Talk
You can learn a lot about the left’s own insecurities just by listening carefully to what they say. For example, Pelosi introduced her two articles of impeachment, but notice what’s missing. Bribery. After months of accusing Trump of bribery, why is it missing from their final charges? Because they know there’s a snowball’s chance in hell of proving it.
Now pay attention to what Nadler says. “No matter how popular he may be, no matter how good or bad his policies may be…”
This is Nadler’s way of admitting people love and support the President.
Oddly enough, Nadler accused Trump of being a dictator. Yet, it is the Democrats who can’t seem to accept their fairly elected official.

First there was the Russian collusion hoax concocted by Hillary Clinton; the Democratic National Committee; and chief conspiracy theorist Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., a documented liar who told us for the past three years that Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.
This massive lie and disinformation campaign Democrats waged with a helping hand from complicit #FakeNewsMedia not only harmed our country; it sowed corrosive distrust in U.S. elections.
This was a win for communist nations and rogue regimes that seek to weaken America – the greatest democracy on Earth. They can now send a thank-you note to the left for having done their unscrupulous work for them.
Even Nancy Pelosi knows this impeachment is a partisan political move.
Impeachment is beyond anything we could’ve predicted in 2016. Honestly, I thought once teh economy started to soar, many democrats would soften their anti-Trump stance. Clearly, that didn’t happen. But now we are facing a trial aimed at discrediting the best President we’ve seen since Ronald Reagan.
As Greg Jarrett explains:
Impeachment is a grave step of last resort to remove a duly elected president. The act of wrongdoing must be sufficiently egregious, and the evidence so clear and convincing, that the constitutional remedy of impeachment merits support from both political parties represented in Congress.
However, unlike previous presidential impeachments, not a single member of the president’s own party has yielded on the matter. It also reflects the sentiment of most Americans who are split along party lines. This alone should give Democrats pause to reconsider the dangerous path they have undertaken.
At this point, Trump is owed complete and total vidication.
Trump has stated repeatedly that he wanted to determine whether Biden committed a corrupt act by extorting taxpayer dollars to force the firing of a prosecutor who was investigating the Ukrainian natural gas company that was paying his son Hunter anywhere from $50,000 to $83,000 a month to serve on its board.
Was Biden’s demand intended to protect his son? If a president has reason to believe that a public officeholder may have engaged in corrupt behavior involving a foreign government, he has every right and duty to request that nation’s leader to investigate. The president is entitled to do so under the terms of a 20-year old treaty with Ukraine.
Biden does not enjoy immunity or amnesty simply because he is now a candidate for office as he pursues the Democratic presidential nomination.
Clearly, the Senate has no choice but to acquit. And once they do, it’s time to turn our sights on the real criminals.
