#MoscowMitch Makes His Move!

Moscow Mitch
(H/T Raw Story via Skinny Dennis)

Amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch McConnell has announced that he has all the GOP Senators lined up and that the rules he wants will be the rules we get.

“We have the votes once the impeachment trial has begun to pass a resolution essentially the same — very similar — to the 100 to nothing vote in the Clinton trial,” McConnell told reporters. “All we’re doing here is saying we’re going to get started in exactly the same way that 100 senators agreed to 20 years ago.”

So, you know, the usual suspects are very concerned, very concerned as they lined up.

As Molly Ivins said (I’m paraphrasing) don’t trust lying mother-eff’ers when they lie to you, look at the record. Collins, Murkowski, Willard et al, make a lot of noise but always get in line.

  1. So we hang this farce around their necks like millstones.

    It makes perfect sense that McConnell would have the votes. Willard is a weasel. Collins has taken to her fainting couch because the Democrats want Maine voters to vote for a Democrat instead of her. How rude! Murkowski is a committee chair for now, but will be bumping up against Republican term limits next year. If she wants another committee, assuming Republicans keep control of the Senate, she has to play ball with McConnell.

    I think McConnell just both-sides-ed, erm, jury tampering and obstruction of justice. The Senate edition.

    If at first you don’t succeed try, try again. The Dims are going to have to start treating articles of impeachment like spaghetti. Keep throwing them at the repub senate until one sticks.

      True Dat, Roket.

      I have a feeling that the phrase, “Impeached but not Acquitted” is Pelosi’s 2020 power move here. Just guessing, but if she can keep him impeached for long enough, it is gonna stick. And anything that makes the Mango Menace goes buggy is going to help in the suburbs as they flee the GOP.

      I don’t think Mitch gives in to pressure, but we know that Pelosi doesn’t.

  5. I remember as a kid being taught “right from wrong”. What was left out was MONEY and who pays who. That completely changes the paradigm of mom and pop taught “right and wrong” from reality right and wrong. “right” is whatever the military industrial complex, banks, wall street, and billionaires tell politicians it is. There is never any wrong. In that case all wrong becomes right. I hate McConnell and the corrupt GOP but the powers that be spoke long ago. Truth and justice are mean nothing.
