POLL: Is it time for GOP Senators to "Ditch Mitch"?

On Saturday, just minutes after the Democrats' second attempt to impeach President Trump failed, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) launched one of the most hateful, mean-spirited attacks against a former American president -- EVER. Despite voting to acquit America's 45th president, 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.

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.

Do these recent comments -- attacks against President Trump by the top Republican in the Senate -- disqualify McConnell from his leadership position? Grassfire wants to know what you think.

+ + Vote Now In Grassfire's New "Ditch Mitch?" QuickPoll!

Today, we're launching a new QuickPoll to find out where our team members stand on the Senate Minority "Leader." McConnell has served as the top GOP Senator since November 2006 and is the longest-serving Senate Republican leader in history. But with the Kentucky Senator becoming so anti-Trump, is it time for him to step aside -- or even be forced out by his GOP colleagues?

If you think McConnell should be removed from his leadership position for his continuous attacks on President Trump, click here or on the "YES!" button below. If you support the Kentucky Republican's efforts to purge the former president from the party and think he should remain Senate GOP leader, please click here or on the "NO!" button below.


If McConnell resigns or gets "booted" from his leadership position, he might end of leaving the Senate. Kentucky's Democrat governor likely would NOT appoint a Republican to take his place. Is losing McConnell worth further tilting the Senate's balance of power TOWARD Democrats?

Please make your voice heard by clicking "YES!" or "NO!" now. We'll share the results of our "Ditch Mitch?" QuickPoll after reaching 10,000 votes. Thanks, in advance, for making your voice heard today.

For life, liberty and limited government,

    Trump has been vindicated both by the verdict(s) and the facts. He said “Peacefully” and this Law and Order President Never, ever intended for anything but a Peaceful Protest to take place. However, the Democrats with their Militant groups of BLM and perhaps Antifa had other ideas! After all, they (Democrats, including the new VP) have been bailing them out of jail ever since they started having riots and pelting police with frozen water bottles.
    The Democrats did not want to call witnesses because any Real Attempt at “Discovery” would have shown the charges against the President to be Untrue!
    When Democrats got to the Senate Chamber, suddenly they wanted to call witnesses. They presented a dishonestly edited video and left out Trump’s remarks to “His Rally crowd” about a “Peaceful Protest.” No wonder the Chief Justice did not want to be there and called it a sham impeachment. Just like the boondoggle of a Covid Relief bill they have been produced. Truth be told, the FBI arrested (with solid evidence) the leader of BLM “John Sullivan”. Mr. Sullivan, it seems had been on CNN presenting his video and providing commentary, and bragging about how he was friends with several FBI agents. Within 24 hours John Sullivan had been arrested by those FBI Agents when they found; he had organized the riot online. Facebook if I recall correctly. What about those fact-checkers? Really!

    Those rioters were BLM and perhaps Antifa Protesters but seriously; in full Trump regalia! They were there so Pelosi and the Dems could blame Trump! No other reason! Sullivan, himself was wearing a Trump 2020 Hat and filmed the activities on his phone. The video was sold later to CNN and MSNBC.

    There was a sticky fly in the ointment of this plan though. The timeline made it impossible for the rioters to be from Trumps’ Rally, as was discussed on Newsmax on the evening of the 7th or 8th of January. During that Newsmax discussion, important information was revealed. Including how long it normally takes to move from the Mall to the Capitol Grounds. Not quite like wet Coffee Grounds but almost as useless. Back to that information; It would have taken anyone a good 45 minutes to make the trip, on foot, on a good day. All those traffic lights and pedestrian crossings “A God Day”; meaning without all the people on the street trying to move from where President Trump spoke over to the Capitol grounds.
    A personal note. I would not have gone directly to the Capitol from the President’s speech, I would have stopped for lunch, First. Just me, I am practical. You see, if I am gonna stand around in the cool breeze on a January day for several hours waving a flag and wearing my had and maybe chanting something along the lines of “Bidens a Crook” I dunno. First I am going to get a Hot lunch!
    Warm food is important on a blustery January day. Especially if I plan on waving a Trump flag and shouting my opinion. But I digress.
    Back to the timeline; Trump did not stop speaking until 1:11 PM at the Rally location, many hung around for a while and then began the trek toward the Capitol. Since any reasonable review would have shown they could not have arrived until after BLM and perhaps Antifa were admitted to the Capitol building. Since President Trump was who they came to see and hear. They might hang around for a bit, these folks Love their President and some were hoping for more from him. Trump was, however, scheduled to end his remarks at 1:00 PM. When he went over by 11 minutes that changed things!
    So if Sullivan as I assume, had a schedule for the insurrection/riot at the Capitol was to start at 1:45 and the group was set to gather between say about 1:40 PM at the Capitol. Sullivan and his henchmen, could not have known about that pesky delay, Since they were not Trump Rally attendees and did not know the President spoke until 1:11 PM at the Rally. John Sullivan’s gathering in full Trump regalia (Flags everywhere almost too many, and Hats) the uniform for a riot to blame Trump for the scheduled trouble making, with both BLM and perhaps Antifa could not have known to delay by eleven minutes. That pushed the arrival time for any of the quickest to leave the Trump Rally to have arrived no earlier than 1:56 PM. Capitol Police admitted those people into that Capitol about 12:40 to 12:45 PM and the Democrats keep saying The Were ALL Trump supporters, in an “Armed Insurrection”. You know I did not see a single rifle, AK-47, AR-15, Shotgun, Nothing at all. I think John Sullivan was packing but only he and the Capitol Police and perhaps the FBI might know.

    The crowd ushered in by Capitol Police looked like they were there for a tour. Gawking at the surroundings and carrying flags. It all appeared to have been planned and the so-called rioters in full Trump regalia were ushered into the Capitol in a welcoming way by Capitol Police. Right on cue, when they were stopped in a hallway, the trouble started. They went toward the Police line with flag poles and anything they could get.

    I suggest that Pelosi and perhaps Schumer and maybe some of the other Dems really are afraid that both OANN and Newsmax will reveal more facts about this problem and other much more embarrassing facts about Pelosi and the Democrats. Facts they don’t want to be revealed to the public.
    You know Pelosi held-off asking for help for about an hour. As has recently come to light. I think she was waiting for the paid protesters to make a big enough scene.

    I believe, Pelosi knew this was coming because she was in on it from the beginning, I expect she gave orders to Capitol Police to admit them into the outer hall and just so far within the building before they stopped them. There was only one gun in the entire group. One young woman died. That is a tragedy as she was protesting peacefully. However, that is not Trump’s fault.
    I lay her death squarely at the feet of Pelosi, Schumer, and the Democrats who went so far as to hold back information, from even his family, that Policeman (Sitnick) who died during the riot was Not hit in the head with a fire extinguisher but in fact, had suffered a Fatal Stroke without any damage to his head or his person.
    At every turn of a phrase since before President Trump took Office, Pelosi, Schumer, McConnel, and other RINOs like Romney and Liz Chaney have sided with the Democrats to unfairly and dishonestly blame President Trump for this Riot and Russia Hoax. Things he was Never responsible for!
    I do wonder if Pelosi and certain Democrats were involved in this, so-called “insurrection” as a plan to finally get to the President. Perhaps and it is pure speculation, with funding for BLM including apparel and flags provided by George Soros.
    My prayer is: May No Weapon formed against him prosper!

    Mitch needs to get with the Trump program or get out of the GOP!! We need true Conservatives who will support President Trump and his MAGA policies and platform all the way. The Marxist Democrats are destroying our Constitution, our Freedoms, and our Country. All GOP members must unify and stick together like glue.

    Hopefully, the ‘good ol’ boys’ club is going away. Thank you, President Trump, for exposing these career criminal politicians.

    Mitch represents the Republicans that are connected to the Deep State and the Military Industrial Complex. Trump showed us that those factions aren’t representative of WE THE PEOPLE. Mitch needs to move on.
