Mitch McConnell scored the winning point in the impeachment trial when he convinced his best friend Lamar Alexander to vote not to hear witnesses. Alexander said the president was out of line when he tried to get help to win the 2020 election, but impeachment is too harsh a beating.
Mr. McConnell controlled the back door of the trial. The Kentucky senator has a reputation for being an articulate and astute politician with razor-sharp focus when it comes to winning. McConnell needs Trump in order for him to win another Senate term. So Mitch celebrated the win by gently bashing Pelosi and the Democrats and staying out of the Mitt Romney fiasco.
Mitt became the first senator in history to vote to remove the president of his own party. Don Jr. thinks Romney is expulsion worthy, and other senators called him names like “fraud” and “snake”. Trump sent Mitt a few trash-talking tweets his way, but the president’s first round of tweets won’t be the last time Romney feels the president’s revenge, according to the New York Times.
