As the House prepares to send an article of impeachment to the Senate on Monday, CNN has learned that dozens of influential Republicans around Washington -- including former top Trump administration officials -- have been quietly lobbying GOP members of Congress to impeach and convict Donald...
The lobbying started in the House after the January 6 attack on the Capitol and in the days leading up to impeachment. But it's now more focused on Sen. Mitch McConnell, the powerful minority leader who has signaled he may support convicting Trump.
"Mitch said to me he wants Trump gone," one Republican member of Congress told CNN. "It is in his political interest to have him gone. It is in the GOP interest to have him gone. The question is, do we get there?"
McConnell knows that the life of the Republican Party is on the line. Not only is the Dear Leader a cancer on this country, he is a cancer on the Republican Party. If the GOP really want to remain a viable political force in the US, they must cut the strings of trumpism once and for all. If McConnell does not lead the GOP member of the Senate with a vote of Guilty, they will all be sorry for years to come.
