Mitch McConnell Supports Trump Impeachment to Save Himself

Donald Trump is going to be impeached for a second time by the US House of Representatives, this time for the charge of “incitement of insurrection” following last week’s attack on the Capitol. Anywhere from five to twenty House Republicans are expected to join Democrats in supporting impeachment. Trump will become the first president to be impeached by the House two separate times and half of the impeachments in presidential history will soon belong to Trump. Nancy Pelosi moved to impeach after Trump refused to resign his office and Mike Pence refused to invoke the 25th Amendment.

Next the impeachment resolution goes to the US Senate, where a two-thirds majority (67 out of 100 Senators), is needed to convict the president. That vote will take place after Biden is sworn in, but it will still be an important vote. If the Senate does convict, there will be a follow-up vote to determine whether or not Trump will be banned from ever again holding public office. In a sign that there’s a chance enough Republicans will join in on the effort, Majority Leader (soon Minority Leader) Mitch McConnell has expressed that he is considering voting in favor of Trump’s conviction. McConnell reportedly believes it might be the best way to purge Trump from the Republican Party.
