Eugene Robinson tells Lawrence O’Donnell that this is McConnell “letting it be known that he is done with Donald Trump.” David Jolly says McConnell’s shift gives Senate Republicans cover to reconsider their votes, meaning conviction “might actually be in play.” Aired on 01/12/2020.

    I’ll believe it when I see it.

  2. WOW!! He’s showing signs of brain activity!

    Big money has being cut there we go,

  4. Anyone NOT leaning toward convicting Trump is as seditious and immoral as he is.

  5. Oh he’s only changing his tune because their corporate sponsors stopped donations because of the domestic terrorist attack on the Capitol🧐

  6. Money, he’s going to lose a lot of money. Follow the money.

    Doesnt matter what Moscow Mitch and the GOP do, the stain of their corruption is permanent.

    McConnell looses his power and now looks to take revenge on his fellow psychopath.

    I think all the Nays should face impeachment.

  10. McConnell carried water for Trump for four years and his reward?

    The base of his own party now calls McConnell a traitor, and the rest of the world harbors even more disdain for him, but for much better reasons

      Where my money Mitch?

    • He got his judges.

    • @Kineahora Republican leaders knew Trump had hijacked their party as soon as their constituents voted for Trump to be the Republican nominee, despite their collective campaigning against him.

      McConnell and other Party leaders carried water for Trump in exchange for a massive tax cut for corporations and the wealthy, repealing environmental regulations, and packing the courts with conservative judges.The only people who got played in the end are the American people.

    • A party built on opportunistic self-serving narcissists always ends in cannibalism.

      shame by associasion!

  11. Evil vs evil. One of the reasons why McConnell is turning against 45th is because he lost.

  12. They danced with the devil well now they can sleep in his bed!

  13. Can’t stand McConnell. He is equally part of the problem in Washington

      The problem is the whole system it’s forgotten it’s purpose to serve the people. What happened to Government For The People By The People.

    • @theresaI wright don’t leave out gaetz and Jordan.

      @Jackie Bilder never liked that lying piece of wasted flesh …..

      @Anime Boulevard Sorry to in form you but that part of America is now manufacturing cheap merchandise in China and being imported to the unemployed and underpaid American people.

      @Sutikare Oluwagbenga and it shouldn’t be that way greed and corruption have overtaken what the country was founded on modern American is like Rome just waiting to fall.

  14. It’s no longer profitable for them to side with trump. Let’s call it like it is

    • its not good for business anymore also at the end of the day the gop got what they wanted from trump.

    • @Aaron Hawley You talking about Caesar and Pompey? Interesting reference.

    • Trying to salvage their party. Funny how they keep rolling over and over and over and over. All of their actions are taped and aired to see what they really are inside. They enabled bad behavior and see where it ended up. Truth is if you unleash a mob, how can you really control such a mob? In some ways, this looks like this was a set up but it’s become all to easy to ensnare some people into their own play book of patterns. After you know their patterns, you allow them to carry them out to the point they go all the way to ruin just because that was the only way to get them to see their own actions caused it. This isn’t the first time a man ruined his own name by his own actions. Howard Stern warned him that it was a mistake to become potus. He should have listened. It’s hard to believe his path forward from now on will be a cake walk. The seed you sow – so shall you reap. The GOP is getting exactly what they sowed.

    • I’d say the Orange Utan destroyed the GOP, so Moscow McKremlin has nothing to lose. Greetings from the Netherlands.

    • @Chris Yeh yeah, a classic example of the instability and futility of power

      The whole purpose of our form of government is to avoid these petty squabbles

  15. This whole thing is McConnell’s fault. Everything he did pathed the way for this to happen.

    • He could have addressed the crazy President situation in the first impeachment -but instead tried to use him, and left our country to rot. Moscow Mitch packed the SC with judges who are arrogant in their own religious views, proud, not humble individuals, who will dispense their edicts on all of us. To them the constitution is dead and no changes will be allowed. No room for evolving. No room for progress. God help us with them, too.

  16. 50/50? Just decide are you for America or for the Antichrist in Trump

  17. As soon as the corporations stoped the flow of money he changed his mind.

  18. พัสตราถรณ์ ศรอิทนร์ | January 13, 2021 at 1:29 AM | Reply

    Funny how a loss of sponsors can grow a spine. MEDICAL MIRACLE

  19. This is what happens when republicans get hit in their checkbook.

  20. He’s trying to stick his sins on Trump now so that the people will forget his devilish stunts he did in 2020.
