Democrats, CNN OUTRAGED After Mitch McConnell Says He Will Work with Trump Admin on Sham Impeachment Trial
On Thursday Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told Sean Hannity he would coordinate with the Trump administration lawyers on what evidence to introduce during the Senate impeachment trial and whether or not witnesses will be called.
McConnell said he would take orders from the White House on their proposed impeachment strategy.
Sen. McConnell: Everything I do during this, I’m coordinating with White House Counsel. There will be no difference between the president’s position and our position as to how to handle this to the extent that we can.”

Of course, these statements by McConnell OUTRAGED Democrats and their liberal fake news media.
Democrats are outraged that Republicans may play politics with their political sham impeachment.
CNN accused McConnell of coordinating with the defense counsel.

More CNN outrage.
.@RepRoKhanna: “For McConnell to be basically saying that the President is going to set the terms of the trial, that the President is going to get to decide the timetable and who is called — our founders would be rolling over in their graves” https://t.co/Zzzt5JN95q pic.twitter.com/zthzF7lvWF

Let’s hope Republicans drag this out until spring and call EVERY witness including Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, James Comey and Barack Obama.
