“Mr. McConnell had considered voting to convict the former president as a means of purging him from the party, but allies said he concluded he could not practically, as leader, side with a minority of his colleagues rather than the overwhelming number who said the trial was invalid and voted to acquit. Instead, he used every ounce of his rhetorical strength to try to damage Mr. Trump’s credibility with his own party. “
As if leadership consists of knowing which way the wind is blowing. McConnell, as much as Trump, is responsible for the breakdown in good governance in Washington. Maybe more so, because if McConnell had had the guts and the decency to call, “Liar”, four years ago a lot of this could have been avoided.
I’m so mad I could spit.
