Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday told CNN’s Manu Raju it’s up to Democrats to decide what to do with indicted DINO scumbag Bob Menendez, further confirming that this situation is a third rail for Republicans who don’t want to say a Dem Senator should step down after being indicted but also that their Orange Messiah should stay in the 2024 race after being indicted.
And no, Mitch hasn’t been shy about pushing Dems out in the past. “The near daily barrage of allegations of sexual misconduct against Senator Franken are extremely concerning to all of us in the Senate. While the Senate ethics committee is reviewing these serious allegations, it now appears that Senator Franken has lost the support of his colleagues, and most importantly, his constituents. I do not believe he can effectively serve the people of Minnesota in the US Senate any longer,” said McConnell in December 2017. That’s from the Daily Kos article “McConnell calls on Franken to resign while his party spends cash to elect a child molester” referring to Roy Moore. Classic Mitch, right?
Raju asked Majority Leader Chuck Schumer the same question and did not get a yes/no answer, with Schumer only saying that Menendez will address the caucus on Thursday. Sounds like it might be a farewell speech but we’ll see. If he doesn’t go then they have to shove him out the door and fast.
