I cannot believe that our failed political press is falling for it again: They are taking amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell at face value when he leaked —loudly and repeatedly— that he’s delighted that the Democrats are impeaching Trump, and that he might vote to ITMFA.
And then, like Lucy, he pulled the football away. He’s not calling back the Senate to deal with it.
He’s dumping the whole thing on Schumer’s lap and delaying Biden getting his cabinet approved. (Impeachment is Privileged and by the Constitution it supersedes all other Senate Business.) It’s his trademark obstruction, and this time he’s getting the Democrats to do it to themselves.
#MoscowMitch is setting up the 2022 Pie Fight right before our eyes. Expect nothing but noise about this impeachment for the next 2 years. It’s how he’s going to try to march the MAGA mouthbreathers into the voting booth.
