It would be more than fair to say that there is an eerie silence on Capitol Hill these last few days, particularly as it pertains to the right side of the aisle.
Republicans have been struggling, at times, to come to the defense of President Trump publicly – no doubt due to the overwhelming bias of the mainstream media and their inability to get a word in edgewise with the progressive punditry.
Those who have spoken out regarding the subject of the Democrats’ “formal impeachment inquiry” have been either predictable never-Trumpers like Mitt Romney, or those who’ve used the opportunity to blast the diversion-prone Democrats a la Lindsey Graham and Devin Nunes.
As the impeachment push continues, one of the major players on Capitol Hill has now come out swinging in defense of The Donald.
While Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has pledged to take up the impeachment fight in the Senate should the House move against President Trump, a new campaign ad from the Kentucky Republican makes clear he’s not wavering on his support for the president.
In the brief video, McConnell accuses House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of being “in the clutches of a left-wing mob” pushing her toward impeaching the president, while promising to stand in her way.
“All of you know your Constitution. The way that impeachment stops is with a Senate majority with me as Majority Leader,” he declares.
He closes by saying, “But I need your help,” as he requests campaign donations. Marine veterans Amy McGrath and Mike Broihier are among the Democrats currently vying for the chance to face McConnell in 2020.
McConnell had previously indicated that he was seek a “swift” trial in the Senate – something that jibes with President Trump’s hopes to have this impeachment kerfuffle wrapped up before the 2020 election.
