Mitch McConnell has gotta be one of the most confusing characters in the GOP.
While proven himself to be a big old Rino, he still makes some moves that show he’s still got a few brain cells left.
I think he’s just scared of ending up like Liz Cheney.
He just made a big BOLD move to block the January 6th commission that Pelosi is fighting so hard to get and Dems better be nervous cause he just confirmed he’s got the votes to get it done.
It’s about time Mitch did something to stop this nonsense and stick up for the GOP.
It’s really the least he can do after all the chaos he brought after the events on January 6th, and the fact that he likely helped remove Trump from office.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has reportedly whipped enough votes to defeat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) partisan January 6 Commission.
“At the moment, no. The House-passed version won’t have 10,” Senate Minority Whip John Thune (R-SD) said when he was asked about the prospects of initiating a commission:
Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) was angry with Republicans for not supporting the commission.
“We’ve got to get to the bottom of this shit,” Tester said. “Jesus. It’s a nonpartisan investigation of what happened. And if it’s because they’re afraid of Trump, then they need to get out of office. It’s bullshit. You make tough decisions in this office or you shouldn’t be here.”
Breitbart News reported Tuesday Democrats needed ten Republicans to vote for the partisan measure but only had perhaps four “yes” votes.
Those Senators include Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), and Susan Collins (R-ME).
The reported whipped “no” votes include Sens. Richard Burr (R-NC), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Rob Portman (R-OH).
Former President Donald Trump released a statement May 18 opposing the Democrats’ “trap,” telling House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and McConnell to “stop being used by the Radical Left.”
This is definitely a stark contrast to how McConnell was acting following the Capitol Hill riots, where he blamed Trump for the entire thing.
I guess he got the message from his base.
