‘McConnell did nothing’: Donald Trump returns with scathing statement

Days following his acquittal in the U.S. Senate impeachment trial, former President Donald Trump released a statement Tuesday slamming Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY , accusing him of failing to appropriately lead the Republican party in 2020.

The statement reads:

“The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political ‘leaders’ like Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm. McConnell’s dedication to business as usual, status quo policies, together with his lack of political insight, wisdom, skill, and personality, has rapidly driven him from Majority Leader to Minority Leader, and it will only get worse. The Democrats and Chuck Schumer play McConnell like a fiddle—they’ve never had it so good—and they want to keep it that way! We know our America First agenda is a winner, not McConnell’s Beltway First agenda or Biden’s America Last,” Trump wrote.

He added, “In 2020, I received the most votes of any sitting President in history, almost 75,000,000. Every incumbent House Republican won for the first time in decades, and we flipped 15 seats, almost costing Nancy Pelosi her job. Republicans won majorities in at least 59 of the 98 partisan legislative chambers, and the Democrats failed to flip a single legislative chamber from red to blue. And in ‘Mitch’s Senate,’ over the last two election cycles, I single-handedly saved at least 12 Senate seats, more than eight in the 2020 cycle alone—and then came the Georgia disaster, where we should have won both U.S. Senate seats, but McConnell matched the Democrat offer of $2,000 stimulus checks with $600. How does that work?”

“It became the Democrats’ principal advertisement, and a big winner for them it was. McConnell then put himself, one of the most unpopular politicians in the United States, into the advertisements. Many Republicans in Georgia voted Democrat, or just didn’t vote, because of their anguish at their inept Governor, Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and the Republican Party, for not doing its job on Election Integrity during the 2020 Presidential race.”
 
“It was a complete election disaster in Georgia, and certain other swing states. McConnell did nothing, and will never do what needs to be done in order to secure a fair and just electoral system”

Ranking GOP Member Exposes Pelosi’s Obstruction to Jan 6 Security Records

As the one year anniversary of the January 6th riots on the U.S. Capitol approach, more information comes to light, particularly with regard to Democrats’ desperate attempts to prove something sinister was planned.

However, Ranking Member for the House Administration Committee Rodney Davis (R-IL) has unveiled new evidence that Pelosi is obstructing access to records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol on that infamous day.

Davis wrote a letter to speaker Pelosi on January 3, 2022 laying out the timeline as proof for his accusations against Pelosi’s obstruction:

“In the immediate aftermath of January 6th, Republicans began an examination of the Capitol’s security vulnerabilities. On January 13, 2021, as the Ranking Republican Member of the House Administration Committee, I sent letters to the Acting House Sergeant-at-Arms, the House Chief Administrative Officer, and the Acting Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) asking them to preserve all records relating to January 6th” the letter states.

“Although the USCP immediately complied with my request to preserve and produce relevant documents, the House Sergeant-at-Arms and Chief Administrative Officer—the two House officers who report directly to you—responded jointly that they were ‘unable to comply with the request at this time.’ Now, nearly a year after this request, the House Sergeant-at-Arms and Chief Administrative Officer have yet to comply with my request.”

“Mr. Irving’s attorneys informed the Senate that ‘the relevant records are the property of the U.S. House of Representatives, and we have therefore referred the Senators’ request for records to the House Office of General Counsel for transmission to the appropriate House officials.’”

“I subsequently wrote to Douglas Letter, the House General Counsel appointed by and responsible to you, to request that he produce Mr. Irving’s communications. However, like the other two House officers who report directly to you, Mr. Letter has not complied—or even responded—to my request for Mr. Irving’s records.”

“Republicans again sought relevant records from House Sergeant-at-Arms and the House Chief Administrative Officer in March 2021 and, once again, the House officers who report to you ignored our requests. At that time, as various federal entities began to produce January 6 material to several House committees, Republicans made requests—including to the House Sergeant-at- Arms and the House Chief Administrative Officer—that all such material be shared equally with Democrats and Republicans. Both the Sergeant-at-Arms and the Chief Administrative Officer failed to produce any documents to Republicans pursuant to our requests, suggesting that these House officers may be providing documents only to Democrats on a partisan basis.”

“As Speaker of the House, you are the most senior elected official in the House of Representatives and therefore ultimately responsible for all House operations, not just those of your party. You appoint all House officers, who serve at your pleasure. You yield enormous institutional power over how Congress operates, including the security posture of the Capitol complex.”

“There is irony in the fact that at the same time House Democrats are holding witnesses in criminal contempt of Congress for raising genuine questions of legal privilege, you continue to obstruct Republican access to House records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol complex on January 6th, 2021. This double standard only adds to the evidence that Democrats are weaponizing events of January 6th against their political adversaries.”
