Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) delivered a blistering rebuke of former President Trump calling his behavior during the Capitol attack “a disgraceful dereliction of duty.”
McConnell, who voted to acquit the former president, said it’s far from over.
Former office holders, he said, are “still liable to be tried and punished in the ordinary tribunals of justice.”
“President Trump is still liable for everything he did while he was in office, as an ordinary citizen,” he continued. “Unless the statute of limitations has run, still liable for everything he did while he was in office. Didn’t get away with anything yet.”
“We have a criminal justice system in this country. We have civil litigation. And former presidents are not immune from being accountable by either one.”
Donald Trump, Jr. defended his father in a scathing attack on the longtime Republican leader.
“If only McConnell was so righteous as the Democrats trampled Trump and the Republicans while pushing Russia collusion bullshit for 3 years or while Dems incited 10 months of violence, arson, and rioting. Yea then he just sat back and did jack shit,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Speaking of criminal behavior, McConnell is worth more than $34 million. So how, exactly, does a man who served more than three decades in Congress earn that much money?
Now, that’s an issue worth investigating.
