Mitch McConnell Abandons RNC, Calls Jan 6 "Violent Insurrection"

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is abandoning the talking points of the Republican National Committee and referring to the events of January 6, 2021, as a “violent insurrection.” McConnell was asked about the Capitol riots and said, “We all were here, we saw it happen. It was a violent insurrection with the purpose of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election from one administration to the next.”

This certainly does not make Mitch McConnell a hero, and ultimately, he chose not to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial when given the opportunity. However, it’s at least a positive that he’s accepting the reality of what January 6th was and not giving in to revisionist history and the pressures of Trump and the RNC. So far, the former president has not responded to McConnell’s words, but we can expect a statement to be coming from Trump’s office criticizing the Kentucky senator any moment now.
