McConnell: Capitol Hill mob was ‘provoked’ by Trump

 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the mob that attacked the Capitol was "provoked" by President Donald Trump.
"The mob was fed lies," McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said on the Senate floor. "They were provoked by the President and other powerful people."
McConnell touted that Congress did its duty despite the violence on January 6, certifying the victory of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
"We'll have a safe and successful inaugural right here on the very front of the Capitol," said McConnell.
McConnell's comments came as the Senate prepares to hold an impeachment trial over the House's charge of "incitement of insurrection." McConnell said on Tuesday that the Senate has received a message from the House that Trump has been impeached but noted that the House has not yet transmitted the article to the Senate.

    1. @Little Mac Yeah, you are right… but sooner or later we have gotta figure out how to get things done. I wish we had more of a majority… because as it is, it’s gonna lock on every issue

    2. @Super Gristmill61
      Has to happen for the mistake they made last time and paid for it from trumps foul mouth.
      Iran are licking their lips in anticipation.

    3. And the damage that has been done is profound… no doubt. Personally, I would lock them all up for treason. But if we keep this system, we have to figure out how win:

    1. He’s a senator of KY. Politically it would have been better for him personally had he not said anything at all.

    2. Turtles wiould chew off their own balls
      …if there were turtle traps or turtles had balls they could reach.
      Don’t let the packaging fool you they don’t have a monocle of hope of reaching their balls.

    1. Hmmmmm
      Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene says she’ll file to impeach Joe Biden on Jan. 21

    2. @macsporan Moscow Mitch ?? He just got re-elected. He’s going to stay in the Senate through the end of 2026.

    1. Hey CNN, HAVE YOU TOLD YOUR VIEWER’S ABOUT THE PELOSI’S NEW IMPEACHMENT? OR BIDENS NEW IMPEACHMENT? OR HAVE THEY SEEN THE NEWEST DECLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS THAT ARE NOT A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY? HAVE YOU TOLD THEM ABOUT THE EXECUTIVE ORDER TRUMP SIGNED THAT GOES INTO EFFECT ON THE 22ND? HAVE YOU TOLD THEM WHY WE HAVE 65,000 TROOPS AT CAPITAL AND MANY OTHERS AROUND THE COUNTRY THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COVID? HAVE YOU TOLD THEM THAT GOOGLE SERVICES FACEBOOK TWITTER YAHOO AOL NBC *CNN* ARE MAKING A LOT OF PAGES PERTAINING TO **TRUTHFUL** INFORMATION? TELL MY FELLOW AMERICAN’S THE TRUTH YOU BOUGHT OUT NWO COMMUNIST. TELL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT YOU LAUGH ABOUT YOU BEING THE ONES WHO TELL THE PEOPLE WHAT TO THINK. TELL THESE AMERICANS!

    1. The day after the Electoral College voted, Mitch did in the Senate announce Joe Biden as the presidential winner and he congratulated him and Kamala. That’s more than most Republican officials did.

    1. Mitch McConnell not trying to go to Prison for Trump!! Its Rough in Prison! More than just 3 hots & A Cot!!!

    2. Sometimes one need’s the RAT’s to think the ship is sinking, at least long enough to weed out the traitor’s. Then the games can begin!!Good luck all!

    3. Maybe. But I like to think that Mitch has finally seen the light. I mean, who else, in his seat of power(and he still has a lot of power, I promise you) do you see speaking up? Not many, man. At his level? Certainly not Mike “White Cobra” Pence.

    4. @Richard McMasky Mitch McConnell got in tooo deep! Trump is Trump & he dont Care who Dies!!!as long as he have his Way! Sad that one human being dont care about noones life but his or her own.

  1. HE IS SUCH A HYPOCRITE! HIS WORDS DON’T MEAN ANYTHING AFTER THE FACT…HE IS AS GUILTY AS SO MANY OTHERS.

    1. This right here might be the most powerful man in the world right now. He alone has the ability to get our president convicted of impeachment. Watch him closely the next few week, his actions may influence the course of history dramatically. Praying for his courage.

    2. God bless America.God bless Donald Trump,the legacy of USA history,First lady,Trump family.Donald Trump,the greatest courage,brave and bird-eye view politican and intellectual to make America great again(MAGA)campaign,and his courage,inspiration speech and intelligence draw attention and group supporters and bring supporters to protest for him in Washington DC is in fact,the incident similar to Dr,Luther King Martin,and definitely Donald Trump provide lot of wonderful assets to Democratic Joe Biden,therefore,the for God,Lord and Jesus christ sake,let Donald Trump free from the impeachment at all.

    1. @Janet Pattison they are afraid of cancel culture and losing their jobs. They are being bullied into saying what they are saying

  2. “The mob was fed lies,” McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said on the Senate floor. “They were provoked by the President and other powerful people.” … YOU, Mitch, are one of those powerful people.

    1. This right here might be the most powerful man in the world right now. He alone has the ability to get our president convicted of impeachment. Watch him closely the next few week, his actions may influence the course of history dramatically. Praying for his courage.

    2. I don’t know. I mean, would you prefer no one on the right said *anything?*

      I think this is his Redemption Moment before GOD, and I commend the guy. Could I be wrong? Sure. But i’m going with my gut here.

    1. Mitch McConnell AINT NO FOOL!!!!! He got that Asian Wife! She Redesign two weeks ago! Pillow Talk!!! I bet she told Mitch McConnell to Rat Trump out!! To save what they have!

    1. He was speaking about the man who rapes kids and commits treason then blames another man in office trying to clean it up for the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

  3. When the Republicans controlled the Senate: “No compromises. This is a zero-sum game!” After losing the Senate: “We’re all in this together.”

  4. McConnell: “they were feed lies by other people..”

    Everyone else: BY YOU… YOU ARE THE OTHER PEOPLE.. THEY WERE FEED LIES BY YOU TOO MITCH!!
