Mitch McConnell Refuses To Answer When Asked About Trump Ukraine Plot

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) dodged the question when he was asked if he thought that Trump acted appropriately in the Ukraine plot.

CNN’s Manu Raju tweeted:

McConnell won’t answer because he lacks the courage to stand up to Donald Trump. Mitch McConnell is going to turn the Senate impeachment trial into a two-week joke. He is going to cater to all of Trump’s conspiracy theories, while Republican members of the Senate jury are hanging out at the White House and have lunch with the defendant.

The same cowardly dynamic that allowed a man who has failed at everything to rise up and take control of the Republican Party, has allowed this same man as president to consolidate power over the GOP. Mitch McConnell is the Senate Majority Leader, but he is also a man who long ago placed partisanship ahead of his country.

America needs leaders, but instead, Mitch McConnell is dodging questions during a time of national crisis.
