Former President Trump appeared on Maria Baritomo’s show Wednesday to rail against Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Trump says with all the problems going on, McConnell “should be ashamed of himself.”

“They were dying,” Trump said of the GOP. “They’re dying at the border, they’re dying in Afghanistan, they are dying all over the place.”

Most of all, Trump was disappointed with the recent infrastructure bill. “Only 11% goes to infrastructure. It’s not an infrastructure plan, it’s a Green New Deal plan,” Trump said. “And because they signed that, it’s going to be easy to get the real beauty, the one they really want, the $3.5 trillion [budget], it’s going to be much easier to get that because they signed this deal.”

As a result of these failures, Trump pointed the finger at the minority leader. “Mitch McConnell should be ashamed of himself,” Trump said. “He is a stupid man, and I’ve said it for a long time. They gave Biden victory.”

Then, Trump repeated an argument he’s made before. “Mitch McConnell should be overthrown and — and overthrown fast, because these senators, he is leading them down a bad path.”

House Republicans Subpoena DOJ for Records of Biden’s Interview with Special Counsel

Joe Biden

Special Counsel Robert Hur determined that President Joe Biden not only mishandled classified documents, but he also declined to press charges against him because his advanced age and declining memory would influence a potential jury.

“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.

House Republicans have subpoenaed the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the interview transcripts, audio, notes and video files from Hur’s interview with Biden which transpired during the investigation.

“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the lawmakers said in a subpoena cover letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” Comer said in a statement. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R., Mo.) are leading the impeachment inquiry.

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” Jordan stated.
