I wish there was a formal, official channel for filing complaints against Moscow Mitch so a real investigation would take place, and even removal from office.
Clearly, Moscow Mitch has violated his oath of office, and has pre-emptively violated his oath to be an impartial impeachment trial juror.
And then there’s his foreign agent wife, a front for Chinese communist government money and businesses.
Schumer should grow a pair and come out fighting against his corrupt colleague.

Oh turtle, turtle, turtle. How deep can you retract into your shell to hide the shame?

Imagine that. The one time McConnell tells the truth, he disqualifies himself from being ethically centered.

He won’t. Too much chance his own corruption will work its way into the conversation.

McConnell would have been a “great” southern judge during the Jim Crow period. He would have given the poor and/or minority defendant a real good trial and then applied the pre-determined punishment. He should repulse any american citizen who values fairness and honesty.

His shame can never be hidden.

Only buried.

He would fit in as a judge in a Sharia court, too. He would love to see some heads and hands get chopped off.

The collective we has allowed this to go on for a long time (and we’re even going to allow Don to run for a second term). I don’t see any legislative or judicial remedy (so far) that will remove this obvious disregard of and threat to the Constitution. I don’t know how it can be done (if at all) but, seriously, people like DT and McConnell do not belong in the U.S.

He should but he won’t. Too many republicans will gladly accept that he broke laws in order to cheat a win “for the team.” The republicans are not about law and order any more- unless you are not white, and not a conservative republican, then you had better behave yourself!

Sure is about time that Mitch was called on the carpet for boastfully saying that he and the Republican controller Senate don’t have to be impartial despite that being part of their jobs. How embarrassing for America in the eyes of the world. McConnell makes us look like the American public are impotent fools and he can do what he likes. Seriously, for shame on us.

With Mitch and Lindsey aboard we know exactly would will happen if it were a democrat being impeached. The hypocritical opposite.
We use that word hypocrite a quite a bit lately, and thus it loses some of it’s import.
Hypocrisy, imho, is akin to lying, so I’m not very surprised at any of trumps minions being dishonest creatures.

First of all Schumer is an incompetent leader and probably the most important is in this case he is completely powerless, unfortunately McConnell holds all the cards. All we can hope for is that “the other shoe drops” before the Senate finishes.

Never happen, The Dem leadership is so corrupt that they cant speak up

True patriots would not tolerate this man for one minute. To think we had young men and women dying in all these wars to end up with a government like this that disrespects the lives they gave and the sufferings of so many others. But - of course - those kind of people don’t really count with McConnell.

Schumer HAS a pair. Problem is, he chooses to use his pair to defend the interests of his plutocrat sponsors. He chooses to be a Trump asset, through willful dereliction of duty. Heck, his “pair” probably weighs a pound and a half, at least (scrotum weight included), given how brazenly and egregiously he violates his public trust.

Appealing to the ethical standards of the imperial legislature is a bit odd, to say the least. But I guess we should welcome efforts to discredit the goosesteppers in the GOP. Of course this wil go nowhere.

And the sun should rise in the West. We know neither will happen, David, but point taken.
