Mitch McConnell is the quintessential career politician.
And, as an ultimate insider he knows every dirty trick in the book.
But Mitch McConnell just said the one word that has all hell breaking loose at the RNC.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has declared war on the Republican National Committee (RNC) for a reason that will have you seeing red.
RINO representatives Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Liz Cheney of Wyoming essentially declared war on the head of their party, Donald Trump, when they joined forces with Nancy Pelosi.
The RINO reps have been doing everything in their power, through the January 6 committee, to take down Trump along with harassing and intimidating his supporters.
McConnell knew he couldn’t stay silent forever—and he finally made a calculated decision to throw his support behind the two turncoats rather than back up Donald Trump.
McConnell’s move comes after the RNC censured Cheney and Kinzinger.
The smackdown from the national committee came as a result of the two RINOs agreeing to sit on the House committee headed up by Democrats which is supposedly “investigating” January 6.
In the resolution the RNC states that it will, “no longer support them as members of the Republican Party.”
That’s because the RNC says Cheney and Kinzinger are “participating in a Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse.”
McConnell decided this was the perfect moment to jump into the fray.
His big argument? The national party shouldn’t be in the business of singling out members of Congress based on their political positions.
“Traditionally, the view of the national party committees is that we support all members of our party, regardless of their positions on some issues,” McConnell told reporters at a Capitol news conference.
That’s a cute idea—if you’re okay with traitors running your party.
But if Republicans want to convince voters they actually care about their platform—and have some integrity—it’s essential for the party to stand up to those who want to destroy this nation and everything it’s supposed to represent.
Cheney and Kinzinger have been out to get Donald Trump for years now, including back when he was the sitting president from their party and they were pushing for his impeachment.
Now they’re taking the next step, by joining Pelosi’s witch hunt to go after him as a private citizen before he has a chance to get back in office.
If anything, the RNC is only pointing out the obvious: Cheney and Kinzinger aren’t really Republicans.
McConnell’s reprimand, especially in light of his recent proclamation that the January 6 riot amounts to an “insurrection,” is likely to make those at the RNC wonder if they should lump him in with the crowd of defectors.
At the very least, he’d better be careful if he wants money in his campaign account the next time he’s up for reelection.
For now, the RNC is standing by their criticism of Cheney and Kinzinger—whether McConnell likes it or not.
“Unfortunately, this committee has gone well beyond the scope of the events of that day, and is why the RNC overwhelmingly passed a resolution censuring Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger,” the RNC said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “Republicans in both chambers of Congress and across the country remain united in our efforts to hold Democrats and Biden accountable for their failures to take back the House and Senate come November.”
RINOs might enjoy their popularity in Washington, D.C., but they don’t represent regular Americans and it’s becoming increasingly apparent that conservatives are sick of having them help Democrats win.
