(ConservativeInsider.org) – The Senate voted to acquit former President Donald Trump in a 57-43 vote on the weekend of February 13. Some Republicans remain under the microscope for their words during the impeachment trial process. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is at the top of the list.
On Saturday, February 13, McConnell stated that Trump was “practically and morally responsible for provoking” the invasion of the US Capitol on January 6.

However, the minority leader also said Trump did not incite the riot and voted to acquit him.
McConnell’s inability to take a stand on either side of the issue shows his lack of authenticity and vision for our nation. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called him out, saying the speech “put a load” onto the GOP, especially on the 2022 campaigns focused on taking back the House. Graham believes those running in the midterm elections will be questioned on McConnell’s speech and whether or not they support him.
Exactly where McConnell fits in the GOP is in question as his uncertainty and vagueness over the past months are not what the party currently needs in a leader. McConnell’s speech and the implications it has on the 2022 election likely mean his political career may be coming to an end.
