Donald Trump’s crushing defeat in the U.S. Senate yesterday revealed that impeachment is now a very real possibility, according to MSNBC‘s Lawrence O’Donnell.
Senate Republicans are not happy with Donald Trump, and today plan to take action that has been described as a “stunning rebuke” of the president.
For weeks now, GOP senators have told Trump not to declare a national emergency to build a border wall. Mitch McConnell and other Republican Senate leaders have completely rejected his national security policy in Syria and Afghanistan.
On Saturday he gave a speech outlining his plan to get a border wall and to re-open the U.S. government. But his plan was immediately rejected by Democrats, so it was a complete failure as a compromise, and it got him no more political support among either Democrats or independents.
On Tuesday evening Democrats in the U.S. Senate succeeded in voting down a Middle East policy bill that had been put forth by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The move was a way for the Democrats to protest President Trump’s government shutdown. If the impasse over funding the government continues they may vote again to block McConnell‘s agenda in the near future.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that any effort by a Democratic House majority to investigate Trump would be presidential harassment and warned Democrats not to harass Trump by holding him accountable.
Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona is now in charge of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, and he knows it.
Flake knows that Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell need his vote in favor of Kavanaugh. He knows that if he votes “no” then Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski are likely to vote “no” also and Kavanaugh’s nomination will never be approved.
According to The Hill, Collins is the one person who will make or break Kavanaugh’s opportunity to become a Supreme Court justice. It turns out that many senators of both parties are waiting to see what Collins decides to do on the Kavanaugh nomination before they announce their own decisions.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell went on Fox News to whine about Democrats obstructing Trump nominees while forgetting that he spent Obama's two terms engaging in obstruction so severe that he obstructed a Supreme Court nominee.
As Mitch McConnell said in 2010, "The voters have spoken. They want a course correction. We should listen to them."
It's going to take more than meetings and publicity stunts to remove the stain that men like Roy Moore and Donald Trump have put on the Republican Party.
After refusing to say that accused pedophile Roy Moore doesn't belong in the Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is in no position to call on Al Franken to resign.

In an effort to change the subject to anything but his pedophilia, Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has declared war on Mitch McConnell.
Roy Moore's days in politics are numbered, even if he does eke out a victory in Alabama.
With Republicans facing a potential defeat in the Alabama Senate special election, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that he believes the accusers of Republican candidate Roy Moore and he called on Moore to step aside.
Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) admitted on Friday that taxes will go up on some middle-class families under the Republican tax plan.

Trump and Mitch McConnell held a press conference in the name of fake unity just to tell the world that they are best friends.
