With less than 24 hours remaining in President Trump’s term in the White House, some of his former close allies see no reason to blindly agree with him on certain matters.
Tuesday Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dropped a bombshell by saying the President Trump and others were a big reason the protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6. “The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.”
The stunning remarks came during a meeting McConnell was having with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Shumer where they were working out details on Trump’s impeachment trial.
Here’s where things get interesting; So far, McConnell has held back the pressure he’s received from Democratic colleagues in the Senate that wanted to hold the trial for Trump before he left office, but according to those close to him, McConnell is still undecided if Trump should be convicted in the Senate for his role in inciting a protest that turned into a full-on riot.
