Scarborough: GOP Lawmakers Will Eventually Have No Choice But to Remove Trump
A few weeks back, when Twitter decided to ban Donald Trump, the President lost a fair amount of his power. He will lose much more this Wednesday when Joe Biden is inaugurated.
Once Trump is out of office, Mitch McConnell will become the most powerful Republican. And the Kentucky senator will have the ability to erase Trump from the GOP forever by convincing his colleagues to convict him.
According to Joe Scarborough, the decision to convict Trump is getting easier by the day. The MSNBC host says the more information that comes out, the guiltier the President looks.
Scarborough told his audience, “I’ve been talking to several pretty well-played sources through the weekend. I’ve been talking to friends in journalism. They’re all coming to the same conclusion about Mitch McConnell, saying we’re not going to take this up in the next week or so. He was somehow trying to protect the president. It’s taken some of us a little while but that’s the last thing Mitch McConnell is doing.”
The host continued:
“Mitch McConnell probably knew when he said he was going to delay it that the longer this plays out the worse it looks for Donald Trump. Here we are 11 days later and more connections are being revealed, and the longer this goes, the more Donald Trump is going to be attached directly to the rioting and the killing of these police officers.”
