I still don’t understand all this media heavy breathing abt McConnell and impeachment. all bc anonymous aides say he “supports” it??

folks, if McConnell agrees to bring back Senate for trial on Friday, that’s a big deal.

everything else is just window dressing
as of now, Senate trial will be after Trump leaves office. McConnell can change that if he really supports impeachment

anyone think he will??

1. quick thread on the media's never-ending desire to claim GOP is "breaking" with Trump.

and the danger that narrative poses; pressrun.media/p/mcconnell-pl…
2. Beltway press played right into McConnell's hand this week, showering him w/ attention suggesting he was standing up to Trump. in fact McConnell has done *nothing* to support impeachment.
3. still, press suggested "floodgates" would soon open and GOPs might rush to vote YES on impeachment.

10 did; that's 5% of caucus.

yet we're *still* seeing "GOP Divided" today headlines.

spoiler: they are not.

“The press has dedicated an extraordinary amount of time and resources over the years to advance the idea that Republicans leaders can't sleep at night” bc of Trump

is it a "failure" if it's by design?

we're 48 months into this and the press just cannot, or will not, grasp the idea that Trump's been waging purposeful war on America

the GOP is not splitting w/ Trump

pls stop writing those stories
there is no “reckoning,” no matter how many times NYT thinks so
If I had to guess right now, I’d say *maybe* 6 GOP votes for impeachment in House out of nearly 200

GUYS, they did it.... nytimes.com/2021/01/09/us/…
that NYT Trump Voter story is really remarkable/sad

in the wake of a deadly riot, the paper gives a national platform to people who lie abt everything.

**and the NYT types up their lies as "news"**

borderline inconceivable
