McConnell privately calling T---- officials begging them to hold off resigning at least tonight: rpt

Report
According to The Daily Beast, outgoing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has been frantically calling White House staffers and asking them to hold off on resigning from the Trump administration and stay onboard for at least a few more hours, until things are clearer.

McConnell "has been busy making calls to the White House in an effort to try and maintain cohesiveness for the next few hours at [a] minimum," reported Asawin Suebsaeng, Erin Banco, and Lachlan Markay. "As Trump aides rushed to keep the departures to a minimum and perform some semblance of damage control, the president vented his fury that politicians and people on cable news were already starting to hold him responsible for the day's mayhem, according to two people familiar with the situation. Predictably, Trump held the position that it wasn't his fault, and that a strong public denunciation was not necessary at the time, the sources relayed."

Multiple sources have reported that several major members of the Trump administration are considering stepping down in the wake of the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters, and the president's failure to adequately condemn the violence. - Raw Story

3. Trump doesn't think he's responsible but he won't condemn it.

And is angry he's being blamed? How many assholes does he have to stick his head into? He's so delusional he doesn't know if he's coming, going or just farting. Wtf. Totally crazy.

6. Or the Nazis in 1923

After the failed Beer Hall Putsch. And their opponents thought that they were done.

This does not end on Jan 20.

7. Sounds like McConnell is hoping to keep together enough of a cabinet

to make a case for article 25/4. The GOP are terrified of what's going to happen to them if the Senate votes for removal via impeachment. This way, Pence becomes the sacrificial lamb. All I can say is that Pence is likely being given some major concessions to do this, knowing it will be the end of HIS political career as well.

10. not so clear cut.

a skilled politician could capitalize on having saved the republic, upheld the constitution, etc... He would not get the magat vote but could get others. eventually the trump mania is going to fade or at least i hope do.
