Trump informed Mitch McConnell about his coup to flip election leads to Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, however McConnell stayed silent.

CNN reported:

Within the weeks after he misplaced the 2020 election, then-President Donald Trump had a plan to remain in workplace — and he wished Mitch McConnell to learn about it.

If Trump might efficiently stress Republican Gov. Brian Kemp to de-certify Biden’s slim win in Georgia, that will result in a domino impact: Officers in Pennsylvania and Michigan would comply with swimsuit and overturn Biden’s electoral victory, Trump believed, a surprising reversal that would preserve him within the White Home for a second time period.

And Trump was sure he might subvert the election end result, telling McConnell, then the Senate majority chief, and different high Republicans that he had personally been on the cellphone with officers in Pennsylvania and Michigan — and so they informed him they might transfer to maintain him in energy, regardless of the outcomes exhibiting Biden had received their states.

The brand new e book from Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns studies that McConnell knew concerning the plot however stayed silent as a result of he didn’t need Trump to sabotage the Georgia Senate runoff elections. (Trump sabotaged the Georgia runoff elections anyway as a result of that’s what Donald Trump does).

Mitch McConnell knew concerning the coup plot, and he did nothing as a result of holding Trump in energy would profit him and hopefully give him the Senate majority.

McConnell has betrayed his country on too many occasions to count, however his most telling betrayal may be his resolution to not try to cease Trump. If McConnell had spoken up, 1/6 might need been prevented. The Huge Lie wouldn’t have taken maintain, and lives would have been saved.

Mitch McConnell stated nothing, and his silence enabled Trump to assault democracy.
