It’s now become clear.
Mitch McConnell wants to convict Donald Trump on the Democrats’ sham article of impeachment.
And now Sean Hannity sent Mitch McConnell a wake-up call on impeachment with one warning.
On the first day of the new Senate, Mitch McConnell tore into Donald Trump over the January 6 riot at the Capitol.
McConnell blamed Donald Trump for the rioters claiming the President ‘provoked them’ and ‘fed them lies.’
These remarks made it clear McConnell was doing more than just seriously considering impeachment.
McConnell was planning to vote to convict President Trump in hopes his vote opened the floodgates to his establishment Republican allies in the Senate falling in line behind him to give Democrats the 17 votes necessary to find Donald Trump guilty.
The Senate could then vote on a simple majority basis to bar Donald Trump from ever holding office again.
McConnell operates under the delusion that cleaving Trump and his Make America Great Again voter base from the GOP is how the Republican Party can win back congressional majorities in 2022 and the White House in 2024.
Several hours later Sean Hannity responded to McConnell on his Fox News program.
“Establishment Republicans have no backbone, no principle, no courage, no vision. Too many politicians in D.C. are just far too willing to go along, get along, and protect the swamp,” Hannity fumed, “and that is why conservatives like myself are tired of these empty promises and your rehearsed speeches and had never getting anything done.”
Hannity declared that McConnell’s impeachment betrayal crossed a line and left Hannity no choice but to call for new leadership in the Senate.
“We need new leadership in the U.S. Senate. You can represent the people of Kentucky. You’re showing basically right now that you’re the king of the establishment Republicans that frankly have always had and remain having contempt for President Trump, but more importantly, the 75 million Americans that voted for him,” Hannity added.
The next two years will be defined by the war in the GOP to determine who will lead the party.
In this fight the battle lines are clearly drawn.
Establishment Republicans like Mitch McConnell that agree with the Democrats on open borders, appeasing China through trade deals, lockdowns, mask mandates and supporting endless wars will be squaring off against Donald Trump and his Make America Great Again base.
Hannity made it known that he sides with Trump and the GOP base and he will use his primetime real estate on Fox News to hold feckless establishment RINOs like Mitch McConnell accountable.
In 2010 and 2012, the GOP underwent a “civil war” where Tea Party candidates Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz defeated establishment RINOs and set the GOP on a new course that culminated with the nomination of Donald Trump in 2016.
Mitch McConnell is terrified of this history repeating itself and wants to make sure an establishment sock puppet can win the GOP nomination in 2024.
