The possibility of Trump being impeached during the second attempt just increased significantly.
Late Tuesday night, reports started to blow up that McConnell has fully broken away from Trump.
The reports further stated that McConnell is so upset with Trump, he is now backing the Democrat effort to impeach the President.
McConnell Sides with Dems
McConnell’s office has not confirmed the reports, but his office has declined to comment, which these days, is just as good as an affirmation of the report.
Over and above the problems at the Capitol last week, McConnell and a significant amount of establishment Republicans believe Trump’s argument of a rigged election cost Republicans the Senate.
McConnell believes that Trump’s effort to fight the election results is what made many Republicans stay home and not vote in the Georgia runoff race.
Now that McConnell has lost the power, he is taking it out on Trump and hopes to have him purged from the party and politics forever.
Just a few days ago, I would have said I was 99.9 percent confident an impeachment would never go through the Senate.
Today, I feel much differently.
If McConnell truly does get behind this impeachment, it is a fairly safe bet he will be able to convince 16 more Republicans to vote with him and impeach Trump.
I have not seen any comments by Trump on this matter yet but you better believe when he does comment, he is going to go ballistic.
