I'm faxing you today to demand Senate Republicans replace Mitch McConnell with a new Minority Leader who fully supports President Trump and his "America First" agenda. Sen. Mitch McConnell does NOT deserve to be the top Republican in the Upper Chamber if he's constantly stabbing President Trump in the back. That's not leadership! It's divisive, unproductive and has NO place in the GOP.
Just minutes after the Democrats' second attempt to impeach President Trump failed, the Minority Leader launched one of the most hateful, mean-spirited attacks against a former American president -- EVER. Despite voting to acquit America's 45th president, Sen. McConnell said from the Senate floor that the events of January 6 were a "disgraceful dereliction of duty," adding:
"There's no question – none – that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day."
Then, on Presidents' Day, The Wall Street Journal published an op-ed from the Senate Majority Leader in which he trashed Trump again! While stating that his vote to acquit was based on the Constitution, McConnell doubled down on his earlier comments about January 6:
There is no question former President Trump bears moral responsibility. His supporters stormed the Capitol because of the unhinged falsehoods he shouted into the world’s largest megaphone. His behavior during and after the chaos was also unconscionable.
Sen. McConnell also implied that, even though "45" wasn't convicted by the Senate, he still could be subject to criminal and/or civil prosecution:
Former officials are 'still liable to be tried and punished in the ordinary tribunals of justice.' Criminal law and civil litigation ensure there is no so-called January exemption.
Those inflammatory attacks against President Trump should disqualify Sen. McConnell from leadership. POLITICO recently reported: "81% of Republican respondents gave (Trump) positive marks." That same poll also revealed: "Fifty-nine percent of Republican voters said they want Trump to play a major role in their party going forward." I agree with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who recently said this to Sean Hannity on FOX News:
"President Trump is the most consequential Republican in the party. If Mitch McConnell doesn't understand that, he's missing a lot. ... I know Trump can be a handful, but he is the most dominant figure in the Republican Party. We don't have a snowball's chance in hell of taking back the majority without Donald Trump. If you don't get that, you're just not looking."
Please caucus with your fellow Republicans and "Ditch Mitch!" ASAP in favor of a new leader who's more aligned with President Trump and the 74 million-plus Americans who voted for him. Please note that I am monitoring how you and the entire Senate GOP's response to my call to action. I urge you to "Ditch Mitch!" before his poor leadership dooms the Republican Party in 2022. Thank you for your time and attention.
