Mitch McConnell has never been a conservative. He would rather play ball with Democrats and collect his paycheck than defend America.
But RINO Mitch McConnell could lose everything after this sick plot was uncovered.
Conservatives wanted changes in the Republican Senate leadership following the November midterm elections.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) strategy of caving to President Joe Biden on guns, the Green New Deal, and numerous socialist spending sprees while failing to offer a positive conservative agenda contributed significantly to Republicans underperforming in numerous races across the country.
Voters witnessed Senator McConnell vote for President Biden’s entire program, and Democrats remained in power partly because the Republican establishment offered no meaningful alternative other than not having the letter “D” beside their name.
Despite pre-election polls indicating that Republicans would win the majority, McConnell’s catastrophic plan allowed Democrats to take one Senate seat.
Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) ran against Senator McConnell in the GOP conference’s leadership elections, and he received the support of nine other Senate conservatives.
But, as usual, McConnell got his revenge in the end, removing Senator Scott and conservative Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) from the Senate Commerce Committee solely for daring to reject the Kentucky Senator’s rule.
Scott said in an email to supporters that McConnell intended to silence conservatives for criticizing his ineffective leadership.
“Mitch McConnell just removed me from a Senate Committee for challenging him for Republican Leader,” Scott wrote. “This is what happens when you challenge leadership in Washington.”
“It’s the kind of vintage Washington insider move you find here in the swamp,” he added. “But that won’t stop me from pushing Senate Republican leaders to act like Republicans.”
Senator McConnell attempted to dismiss the stories of Lee and Scott losing their committee assignments.
“The way we do things, for two years, he could have traded in one of his permanent committees for Commerce and stayed on it,” McConnell claimed of Scott.
“He had a temporary assignment. There were others who wanted it. And I gave it to two other Senators. No particular reprisal in mind, I had no animus toward Rick Scott at all.”
“He could have picked that as one of his two main committees,” he continued. “There were others who wanted a temporary assignment on Commerce, in addition to him. I ended up giving it to Sen. [Shelley Moore] Capito and Sen. [Cynthia] Lummis, both of whom I think would argue that they, too, could be good members of the Commerce Committee.”
McConnell is free to say whatever he wants, but it’s evident that he wanted to send a message to conservatives.
Senator McConnell said in 2014 that the Republican establishment would “crush” Tea Party primary candidates everywhere, despite the fact that the Tea Party wave won Republicans both House and Senate majorities in 2010.
Mitch McConnell now wants to scare conservatives into sitting down, shutting up, and bowing to the Republican establishment elite.
