“All of you know your Constitution, the way that impeachment stops is a Senate majority with me as majority leader”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has been vocal about his disdain for Democrats and their “impeachment obsession” and their seemingly endless “impeachment parade.”
He’s now taking his rhetoric to new levels in vowing to stop the impeachment circus in the Senate.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) reelection campaign is seizing on the fight over impeachment, pledging in Facebook ads that he will lead Republican efforts to stop President Trump from being removed from office.
“Nancy Pelosi’s in the clutches of a left wing mob. They finally convinced her to impeach the president. All of you know your Constitution, the way that impeachment stops is a Senate majority with me as majority leader,” McConnell says in an ad that began running on Thursday.

It might be tempting to view this as just another campaign stunt, but the fact is that the latest Democrat attempt to undo the 2016 presidential election is falling apart and everyone knows it.
RESPONSE⬇ Speaker Pelosi ignores the basic standards of due process observed by past Speakers of the House. This is a sham process, a political messaging campaign served to reverse the results of an election that her party could not win. The American people deserve better. pic.twitter.com/5Ev4oHrXxa

Additionally, President Trump’s approval rating is up to 49% in the latest Hill/Harris poll, and the Democrats’ impeachment obsession has people donating huge sums to the president’s reelection efforts as well as to the RNC.
UPDATE: We have now raised almost $15 million in small dollar donations (including 50,000 NEW donors) since @SpeakerPelosi started this impeachment charade 72 hrs ago! Unbelievable numbers!! Keep it going — you and the dems are handing @realDonaldTrump the win in 2020! ????

McConnell campaign manager Kevin Golden told The Courier Journal the impeachment inquiry is energizing the Senate leader’s supporters.
“Few issues energize conservative voters like liberal overreach,” Golden said in a statement. “And the Democrats latest outrageous attempt to impeach President Trump has activated our base to new heights.”
. . . . The president also claimed Thursday that McConnell put out a statement referring to the president’s phone call with the president of Ukraine as “the most innocent phone call (transcript) that I’ve read.”
McConnell’s office has not responded to questions about Trump’s assertion, though the Senate leader dismissed criticism of the call last week and said it is “laughable to think this is anywhere close to an impeachable offense.”
We don’t yet know what McConnell will do should the House pass articles of impeachment, but I’m pretty sure it will be well worth watching.DONATE
