Trump rips McConnell in lengthy statement after being acquitted in impeachment trial

Source: CNN

Former President Donald Trump went after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday, calling him "a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack" in a broadside attack just days after the Kentucky Republican voted to acquit Trump in his second impeachment trial.

After that vote, McConnell ripped Trump in a speech from the Senate floor, and the two have been estranged in recent months after working closely together during the former President's four years in office.

"Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again," Trump said in the statement. "He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right for our Country. Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First. We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership."

Trump asserted that the Kentucky Republican's shortcomings had contributed to the party's loss of the Senate majority, saying that "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."

Per the New York Times, Trump’s original draft was much nastier.

This Thursday, SC will review a Trump v Biden case filed back in December...

Essentially, claim is that Wisconsin SC didn’t have the Constitutional Authority to modify rules on acceptance of Absentee Ballots.

I expect the Court will dispose of it quickly.

Former Iowa Democratic Party chairman speaks out on caucus chaos

Axios

Iowa's first-caucus status was a target by those who wanted to butt ahead of Iowa long before the botched 2020 event, Troy Price, the former Iowa Democratic Party chairman who resigned under pressure, told Axios on Monday. That included some people from within Democratic circles, he said.

Driving the news: Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said Iowa's first-in-the-nation status is "unacceptable" in an explosive new interview published Sunday by the New York Times.

In response: “Everything could have gone swimmingly in the 2020 caucuses and we’d still be having this fight," Price said.

Why it matters: Iowa politicians from both parties are fighting hard to retain the state’s place as first in line.

Losing it would erode Iowa’s political influence and cost the state millions of dollars in future revenue generated from holding the first event.
