Quid Pro Quo Mitch McConnell? House Majority Leader Threatened President Trump Before Leaving White House
One of the best ways to define the past few years relating to the presidency is with three words…quid pro quo.
Democrats in Congress fought with all their might to impeach President Trump and they tried to impeach him for many reasons.
The first reason that they went after him is because of the Russian collusion hoax. We all know how that turned out.
We learned that things were quite the opposite and it turns out there was interference from the sitting administration at that time, aka the Obama administration.
Then we had the so-called “quid pro quo” from President Trump on the phone call with the Ukrainian President. This was false as well, but they impeached him anyway.
The truth was that Joe Biden actually DID have a quid pro quo when he threatened to withhold funding from Ukraine unless they fired the prosecutor who was investigating his son.
Now it looks like Mitch McConnell has his own quid pro quo against President Trump after threatening him with an impeachment conviction if he pardoned a certain individual.
Carlson said, “Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the leader of Republicans in the Senate, has sent word over the White House – If you pardon Julian Assange we are much more likely to convict you in an impeachment trial. Well, is it legal to hold that over a president’s head? We’re not lawyers, we don’t know. It’s certainly wrong. But more than that, it tells you everything about their priorities.”

Adam Goldman from the New York Times confirmed that McConnell really does not care for President Trump at all saying in a tweet,
“McConnell he has told allies he hopes never to speak to Mr. Trump again and is doing nothing to persuade senators to back him, instead calling the impeachment vote a matter of conscience.”
