Senator Mitch McConnell considered a vote to convict Donald Trump in the impeachment process for his alleged role in the Capitol riots and said he was “done with” the “crazy” former president about the incident.

The revelations emerged in excerpts published from the forthcoming book, Unchecked: The untold story behind Donald Trump’s failed impeachment by Congress, written by Rachael Bade of Politico and Karoun Demirjian of the Washington Post.

Explaining that the vote to condemn Trump would be “one of the most pivotal votes of his career,” the authors indicated that McConnell (R-KY) was almost certain that the GOP would purge itself of the then president.

“But while McConnell was ready to be done with Trump, his party didn’t seem to be,” they wrote.

The Washington Post book excerpts quickly placed Mitch McConnell in the realm of AOC or Adam Kinzinger with his melodramatic response to the events of January 6.

They describe him as “stunned” at what “looters” had done in the Capitol and illustrate a man “overwhelmed with emotion at the trauma [his aides] experienced.”

The result was this promise: “We all know Trump is crazy,” McConnell told them. ‘I’m done with him. I will never speak to him again.”

And while the Senate Republican leader may have been willing to move forward, it became clear that the GOP lacked the votes to convict Trump, despite attempts by Liz Cheney (R-WY) to convince him to take action soon. to circumvent a fair trial.

“She urged him in a series of phone calls to recall the Senate from a congressional recess before Biden’s inauguration and to swiftly convict Trump before leaving office,” the authors reveal.

“Republicans would follow suit,” she urged McConnell. And besides, Trump still posed an ongoing threat to the country.”

On that last point, according to the book, McConnell did not disagree, although he knew the logistics would make a quick conviction impossible.

“We do not disagree about the content; we just disagree on tactics,” he is said to have told Cheney. “Let’s just ignore him.”

The final book on the events surrounding the Capitol Riot Square with another previously published effort in which Mitch McConnell claimed he was “thrilled” that Trump had “completely discredited himself” throughout the ordeal.

He was also delighted that Trump had seemingly “committed political suicide.”

“I’m excited that this guy has finally completely discredited himself,” McConnell said. “He put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. Couldn’t have come at a better time.”

McConnell, it seems according to a New York Times column by the authors of that particular book, thought “The Democrats are going to take care of the bastard for us.”
