What can you say about Mitch McConnell that you couldn’t say about Benedict Arnold or Judas Iscariot? Because of his betrayal to the 74 million Trump voters and more specifically Trump voters in Kentucky, he is viewed as untrustworthy but only because he is.
For his actions, he has become the second GOP member of congress to be censured. The first was Liz Cheney, a member of the House. Cheney voted for impeachment.
Kentucky Republicans in Nelson County censured Mitch McConnell for his attacks on his own party and his willingness to give Chuck Schumer anything he wants.
McConnell’s wealth is much like Hunter Biden’s and the Big Guy’s comes from China. He probably celebrated Trump’s defeat.
He has been warned by several GOP Senators that if he votes for impeachment, they will no longer support him as party leader in the Senate.

McConnell’s speech prompted Nelson County GOP leaders to hold an emergency meeting, voting unanimously to issue a resolution censuring the senate majority leader for his comments.
“This has shown his true colors,” Nelson Co. GOP Chairman Don Thrasher said. “We felt today during his floor speech on the Senate where he impugned the character of President Trump was unacceptable to us. his whole behavior overall through this whole process of the last week is not consistent with what he promised us when he was running for re-election.”
McConnell hasn’t said how he will vote in the second impeachment trial of President Trump, but has said it’s a “vote of conscience” and will be based on facts. But in light of the impending impeachment trial in the Senate, Thrasher has also proposed a resolution calling on McConnell to vote to acquit Trump.
“Basically calling for Senator McConnell to support President Trump and denounce the second impeachment as divisive,” Thrasher said.
McConnell has yet to determine how he will vote in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial, stating in a letter earlier this month that he intends to “listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate.” His refusal to reveal his leanings and recent determination that Trump and “other powerful people” essentially “provoked” the January 6 mob have appeared to cause a bit of unease among Senate Republicans.
