Cocaine Mitch to Dems: Impeachment Is Not a Tool to Be Used for "Relitigating" Elections You Lost

Talk of impeaching President Trump is once again at fever pitch in Washington, DC as the House’s Orange Man Bad Caucus (erroneously) thinks they finally have enough goods on Trump to impeach him.

It’s increasingly likely that their latest foray into impeachment will go as disastrously as their last one, which perhaps is one reason of many why Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) issued a blistering statement this week noting that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has lost control of her “far-left conference.”

More importantly, McConnell reminded Democrats once again that the process of impeachment is not a tool to be used for the highly partisan purpose of “relitigating” elections they’ve lost:

Washington Democrats have been searching for ways to reverse their 2016 election defeat since before President Trump was even inaugurated.

The result has been a two-and-a-half-year impeachment parade in search of a rationale. When investigations by Special Counsel Mueller and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence deflated their breathless accusations of a campaign conspiracy with Russia, Democrats have simply shifted to new arguments for their predetermined conclusion.

Speaker Pelosi’s much-publicized efforts to restrain her far-left conference have finally crumbled. House Democrats cannot help themselves. Instead of working together across party lines on legislation to help American families and strengthen our nation, they will descend even deeper into their obsession with relitigating 2016.


Here’s his full statement below:

President Trump has okayed a Wednesday release of the “complete, fully declassified and unredacted” transcript of his July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

In addition to that, Politico reports that the White House is in the process of releasing the “whistleblower” complaint that prompted the latest round of impeachment fever, which Congress could receive as soon as Friday.

Stay tuned.
