What one top Republican said about Donald Trump will leave you speechless
The RINO establishment never wanted Donald Trump to be President.
Washington, D.C. Republicans thought they finally found their moment to get rid of Donald Trump.
And what one top Republican said about Donald Trump will leave you speechless.
Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns’s new book, This Will Not Pass, includes reporting on a previously unknown episode revolving around House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and the events of January 6.
After the melee at the Capitol, McCarthy joined other top Republicans on a phone call and went so far as to question who in Congress and the cabinet could invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump as President.
McCarthy also told the assembled Republicans that he told Trump the Democrats would be able to pass Articles of Impeachment and that he recommended the former President resign.
On a conference call with top Republicans, McCarthy said Trump’s conduct was “atrocious and totally wrong,” blamed him for inciting the crowd and “inquired about the mechanism for invoking the 25th Amendment … before concluding that was not a viable option.”
— McCarthy told Republican leaders he “planned to call Mr. Trump and tell him it was time for him to go. ‘What he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that and nobody should defend it,’ he told the group. Mr. McCarthy said he would tell Mr. Trump of the impeachment resolution: ‘I think this will pass, and it would be my recommendation you should resign.’”
McCarthy’s spokesman later denied ever telling Republicans that Trump should resign.
“McCarthy never said he’d call Trump to say he should resign,” McCarthy’s spokesman told Burns and Martin.
Burns and Martin also wrote that Mitch McConnell outrageously described Trump’s actions as impeachable.
POLITICO also reports:
McConnell told top advisers, “The Democrats are going to take care of the son of a bitch for us,” after it became clear that Democrats were going to impeach Trump in the House, adding, “if this isn’t impeachable, I don’t know what is.”
There is no question establishment Republicans hoped that they could latch on to the false corporate-controlled media narrative that Donald Trump incited an insurrection on January 6 to exile him from the Party and American political life.
But Republican voters refused to buy into the corporate-controlled media’s spin on the events and stuck by Donald Trump.
And since the voters were still with Trump, establishment Republicans – for the most part – backed down.
