Senator Mitch McConnell did not vote to impeach Donald Trump, but he did not give the former President his full support.
The Senate Minority Leader called Trump’s behavior before the riots “a disgraceful dereliction of duty.”
But McConnell didn’t stop there. He said Trump “cannot spend weeks thundering that shadowy forces are stealing our country and then feign surprise when people believe him and do reckless things…He did not do his job. He didn’t take steps so federal law could be faithfully executed and order restored.”
Of course, McConnell is using words that don’t align with any legal standard of incitement so it’s not clear what he is trying to say other than to have his cake and eat it too.
