Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw more cold-water on the Democrats’ impeachment fantasy Monday; saying he “can’t imagine a scenario” where the Senate would vote to remove Donald Trump from office.
“I can’t imagine a scenario under which President Trump would be removed from office with 67 votes in the Senate,” McConnell told USA Today.
“Nothing is happening because House Democrats seized with Trump derangement syndrome are consumed with this argument with the president,” he said.
McConnell made similar comments last week; telling reporters “I will say I’m pretty sure how it’s likely to end. If it were today, I don’t think there’s any question it would not lead to a removal.”
Meanwhile, House Democrats refuse to commit to a formal timeline of their investigation into the President’s dealings with Ukraine.
“I haven’t had a lot of time to pay attention to the president’s tweets and the legal implications of them. I just think that was totally wrong and inappropriate and typical of the president,” Pelosi told CBS News.
“I have no idea,” she responded when asked if the process could drag-on into 2020.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Face The Nation that President Trump is an "imposter" who insults people because "he knows full well that he's in that office way over his head" https://t.co/IZYJPvtpmg pic.twitter.com/9dyfNcenqs

“It is self-evident that we have open hearings for the next week. I don’t know if there are any beyond that,” she added. “And then when we come back [from Thanksgiving], maybe a decision or maybe they have more hearings.”

AOC ERUPTS: Ocasio-Cortez SLAMS Mitch McConnell, Says He ‘Doesn’t Want to Save the Planet’
Embattled Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unloaded on Sen. Mitch McConnell Tuesday; bizarrely suggesting the GOP leader “doesn’t want to save the planet” and will be “drinking oil in 30 years.”
“What McConnell’s doing is that he’s trying to rush this bill to the floor without a hearing… without working through committee — because he doesn’t want to save our planet. Because he thinks we can drink oil in 30 years when all our water is poisoned,” Ocasio-Cortez reportedly said.

Ocasio-Cortez was referencing McConnell’s recent decision to bring her ‘Green New Deal’ to a full Senate vote Tuesday; saying “I could not be more glad that the American people will have the opportunity to learn precisely where each one of their senators stand on the ‘Green New Deal.’”

Original Story: August 8, 2019
The GOP and White House called-out social media platform Twitter Thursday after they suspended Sen. Mitch McConnell’s campaign account for posting threats made against the Republican leader.
“The National Republican Senatorial Committee on Thursday said it won’t spend money on Twitter until the situation is ‘adequately addressed.’ A top official with the Republican National Committee also said the RNC and the Trump campaign would not spend money with Twitter ‘until they address this disgusting bias,'” reports Fox News.
“If the internet is going to be presented as this egalitarian platform and most of Twitter is liberal cesspools of venom, then at least the president wants some fairness in the system,” said one White House official.
“Twitter locked our account for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell,” McConnell campaign manager Kevin Golden said in a statement on Wednesday. “This is the problem with the speech police in America today.”
