Trump rips McConnell in lengthy statement after being acquitted in impeachment trial

McConnell called Trump's actions ahead of the January 6 insurrection "a disgraceful dereliction of duty".

"The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political "leaders" like Sen".

Yes. Now that Trump has left office, any misconduct he engaged in as president is "fair game" for criminal charges, said Brian Kalt, a constitutional law professor at Michigan State University.

And in "Mitch's Senate, ' over the last two election cycles, I single-handedly saved at least 12 Senate seats, more than eight in the 2020 cycle alone-and then came the Georgia disaster, where we should have won both U.S. Senate seats, but McConnell matched the Democrat offer of $2,000 stimulus checks with $600".

While McConnell didn't vote to convict Trump in the Senate impeachment trial (seven Republicans did), he still delivered a disparaging speech, laying the blame for the violent mob who attacked the Capitol building in Washington DC squarely at the feet of Trump. "Failure to do so will only invite this type of authoritarianism for the anti-democratic forces on the far right that are so intent on destroying our country". We know our America First agenda is a victor, not McConnell's Beltway First agenda or Biden's America Last.

"My party's leadership has chosen loyalty to one man (Trump) over the core principles of the Republican Party and the founders of our great nation". But among the Republicans who will decide who leads their party into 2024, his approval was a much healthier 81 per cent.

Trump, who delivered a fiery speech to supporters just before the Capitol assault, denies any responsibility for the violence.

Pence was a loyal vice-president for four years, though his relationship with Trump soured at the end, as Pence refused to unilaterally - and illegally - overturn the election result during the joint session of Congress on January 6.

The Wall Street Journal editorial board warned that Trump won't win a national election again.

Trump, a Republican, has said the probes are politically motivated.

"President Trump also violated his oath of office by failing to protect the Capitol, the vice-president, and others in the Capitol".

In Louisiana, the state Republican Party's executive committee unanimously censured Cassidy after he joined the six other Republicans in voting against Trump.

While a majority of the Senate, 57 of the 100 members, voted for conviction, it fell short of the two-thirds majority required. He straight-up said "There is no question that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day".

"These criminals were carrying his banners".

The relationship between Mr Trump and Mr McConnell is not the only one to have soured over the past month. "And former presidents are not immune from being accountable by either one".

Trump spokesman Jason Miller rejected the allegations in the suit.

"The suit is the latest legal problem for Mr. Trump", the NYT continues.

Giuliani told the crowd "let's have trial by combat".

He explained that they are simply not working together because "there are no pending cases where Mayor Giuliani is representing the President".

"If we're going to win this game, if you will, or win at politics and maintain our freedoms ... then we're going to have to band together and not splinter ourselves", he said during a January 26 talk radio interview.

His office pointed to a Congressional Budget Office analysis published Monday that said just $6.4 billion of the $128 billion the Biden administration is asking for could be spent by K-12 schools in 2021, with the bulk of the money to be spent in future years.
