Turtle 🐢 Moscow Mitch might give the Dems a gift 🎁.

Jim Vandehei of Axios on tv this morning.
He said when the Senate gets the impeachment resolution from the House that Moscow Mitch can hold the Senate vote either publicly or privately.
He said that McConnell wants a public vote.

That means that vulnerable GOP Senators in Purple states like Colorado, Arizona, Iowa, Maine, and NCarolina will have to go on the record.
They will be in a no win situation by supporting an unpopular Trump in their state or alienating their base.
😛😋😍😉😜

1. Of course he wants it to be public

Trump has so many enemies and the only thing holding the gang together is fear of being primaried by the Trump base... if the vote were private Jeff Flake estimated 30-35 GOP senators would vote for impeachment.
