Report: Mitch McConnell Said He’s ‘Done’ With ‘Crazy’ Trump Over Capitol Riot

Senator Mitch McConnell was considering a vote to convict Donald Trump in the impeachment trial over his alleged role in the Capitol riot and said he was “done with” the “crazy” former President over the incident.

The revelations surfaced in excerpts published from the upcoming book, Unchecked: The Untold Story Behind Congress’s Botched Impeachments of Donald Trump, written by Politico’s Rachael Bade and the Washington Post’s Karoun Demirjian.

Explaining that the vote to convict Trump would represent “one of the most pivotal votes of his career,” the authors indicated McConnell (R-KY) was all but certain the GOP would purge themselves of the then-President.

“But while McConnell was ready to be done with Trump, his party, it seemed, was not,” they wrote.

Mitch McConnell Said He’s ‘Done With’ Trump

The book excerpts provided by the Washington Post quickly put Mitch McConnell in AOC or Adam Kinzinger territory with his melodramatic reaction to the events of January 6.

They describe him as “stunned” at what “marauders” had done at the Capitol and illustrate a man “overcome with emotion at the trauma [his aides] experienced.”

The result was this promise: “We’ve all known that Trump is crazy,” McConnell told them. “I’m done with him. I will never speak to him again.”

And while the Senate Republican leader may have been prepared to move on, it became clear that the GOP didn’t have the votes to convict Trump, despite efforts by Liz Cheney (R-WY) to convince him to take action in short order, circumventing due process.

“She pressed him in a series of phone calls to bring the Senate back from a congressional recess before the Biden inauguration and quickly convict Trump before he left office,” the authors reveal.

“Republicans would follow his lead, she insisted to McConnell. And besides, Trump still posed an ongoing threat to the country.”

On that last point, according to the book, McConnell “did not disagree” though he knew the logistics would make a quick conviction impossible.

“We don’t disagree on the substance; we just disagree on the tactics,” he allegedly told Cheney. “Let’s just ignore him.”

Trump Says McConnell is a Broken Down Hack

The latest book on the events surrounding the Capitol riot square with another previously published effort alleging Mitch McConnell admitted he was “exhilarated” that Trump had “totally discredited himself” over the entire ordeal.

He also took joy that Trump seemingly had ‘committed political suicide.’

“I feel exhilarated by the fact that this fellow finally, totally discredited himself,” McConnell said. “He put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. Couldn’t have happened at a better time.”

McConnell, it seems according to a New York Times column from the authors of that particular book, thought the “The Democrats are going to take care of the son of a bitch for us.”

Trump has repeatedly taken shots at Mitch McConnell ever since the Senate Minority leader vowed to be “done with” him.

Just a few short weeks ago, as reported by The Political Insider, Trump took to social media to blast McConnell as a “broken down hack politician” and even made remarks about his “crazy wife.”

Last week, Trump described Mitch as an “absolute loser” who has been giving Democrats “everything they want.”

On Thursday he shared a column analyzing a new Civiqs poll indicating just 7% view McConnell favorably.

Trump has pressed the GOP to oust McConnell, whom he describes as a “Broken Old Crow,” from leadership.

  • Mitch McConnel has never been a nationalist supporter. His allegiance has always been with the elite globalists. That is where he gets funding and he could never survive on citizens support. Time to send him packing.

  • Mitch needs to be sent to China to live out his days. The guy is pro-Communist, anti-American, and is only interested in filling his pockets with taxpayers' monies. McConnell is a communist Chinese operative who has damaged this country to no end.

  • Hey Mitch McConnell "We the People" of America are done with you. You no lnger work for the American people but for your political greed.

  • Hmm who has Biden/ Obama in their back Pocket ? ( China ) Who has numerous investments in China, a wife that is Chinese? ( McConnell ) McConnell and Trump fought most of the way though Trump's turn, after Trump put bigger Tariff's on Chinese imports. When the Republicans retake the Senate, they need to vote Mitch out as Party leader, and vote in someone with some Gonads, that will stand up to China, Biden, the Deep State, and Obama, once and for all

  • If aholes like McConnell want to do something worth while and good for America, then pressure the SOCTUS to do their job.
    The true tragedy of the 2020 election cycle, aside from the fraud, was SCOTUS's failure to stay the election results until a complete honest investigation could be completed. That would have served to a) satisfy the election fraud suspicions, b) expose election vulnerabilities, c) certify the true winner of the election, and d) maintain and restore voters confidence in the voting system. SCOTUS failed the people in the worst way possible. Shame on them. 

    • If the 2020 election was so squeaky clean, why didn't the Democrats welcome investigations to show that was the case? Well simply, because it WAS NOT. I agree there was no widespread fraud. It was TARGETED. Odds were astronomical that Trump would not win a single swing state. And there's the down ballot issue. Why weren't more Democratic representatives elected to congress? There should have been. The simple answer is there wasn't enough time to do anything but fill in Biden-Harris at the top and make the covert dumps. You cannot convince me there was that much ticket splitting happening.
