Sunday on MSNBC’s Kasie DC, Sen. Mazie Hirono declared that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to “whitewash” the charges against Donald Trump in the President’s upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate.
“I think he’s going to pretty much spring everything on us Tuesday,” Hirono said. “I pretty much know he doesn’t want any witnesses. He wants it to basically be what I would call a whitewash. We won’t have witnesses, documents and that’s how Mitch wants to do this.
“And there’s a big rush to have the road taken with all the Republicans presumably not voting to convict the president before the State of the Union so the president can run around saying he was exonerated, just like after the Mueller report.”
The Mueller report did exonerate Trump, just as the Senate impeachment trial will — because Trump has been guilty of no impeachable offense. The entire process has been a bogus farce of Democrat desperation.
