Now that Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial is done and over, Republicans are looking to regroup and move forward together as a Party.
But some members of the establishment are hoping to purge Donald Trump and his supporters from the Republican Party.
And Sean Hannity just gave the GOP an ultimatum that could cost Mitch McConnell his job.
Mitch McConnell and John Thune are the top two Republicans in the U.S. Senate.
And even though McConnell and Thune voted to acquit Donald Trump, they both made it a point to trash and smear him on the Senate floor.
McConnell effectively said he supported the Biden Justice Department bringing criminal charges against Donald Trump for the riot that occurred on January 6 and John Thune said he was open to the Democrat’s calls for censuring Trump.
But on a recent episode of his Fox News show, Sean Hannity ripped both Mitch McConnell and John Thune for not holding Barack Obama and Democrats to the same standards as Donald Trump.
As Hannity pointed out, McConnell and Thune were silent for four years as Democrats routinely incited violence and staged a coup against President Trump.
“Where was John Thune and Mitch McConnell fighting against the biggest abuse of power corruption scandal in our history with Operation Crossfire Hurricane? They were missing in action. Where’s the sanctimonious Mitch McConnell, John Thune, demanding that Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters — when is he going to give a speech on the Senate floor and hold those Democrats accountable for their incitement of insurrection and their insurrection-like language?” began Hannity.
Hannity then made an ultimatum to Republicans that could cost Mitch McConnell his job as Senate Leader.
“The time is now coming for new leadership in the U.S. Senate,” Hannity declared.
Of course, aside from his comments on the Senate Floor, Mitch McConnell also published a scathing article in the Wall Street Journal where he vowed to defeat Donald Trump-backed candidates in the 2022 Senate primaries.
But poll after poll shows most Republicans still consider Donald Trump their leader.
So Mitch McConnell could be making a big mistake by opposing Trump and his endorsed candidates.
