WASHINGTON, D.C., January 13, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has reportedly thrown his support behind the move to impeach President Donald Trump for his alleged incitement to violence at the U.S. Capitol building last Wednesday. According to the article of impeachment drawn up against the president, he “gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government.”

The New York Times reported that close associates of McConnell have said he believes the president has “committed impeachable offenses,” and that the Democrats are right to motion for his impeachment, making it easier for the Republican Party to drop Trump. The House will vote today on whether or not to formally charge the president with incitement to violence at the Capitol.

The impeachment article, purportedly backed by McConnell, will apparently not be formally contested by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) either, among other Republican congressmen. The Times reported that McCarthy did seek a censure vote in place of pursuing impeachment, as a lesser punishment, but that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) struck down the motion.

The single article of impeachment brought against President Trump charges that he “willfully made statements that encouraged — and foreseeably resulted in — imminent lawless action at the Capitol.” The document goes on to accuse the president of inciting those who “unlawfully breached the Capitol, injured law enforcement personnel, interfered with the Joint Session’s solemn constitutional duty to certify the election results, and engaged in violent, deadly, destructive, and seditious acts.”

Asserting a pattern of subversive behavior in office, the article states that “President Trump’s conduct on January 6, 2021 was consistent with his prior efforts to subvert and obstruct the certification of the results of the 2020 presidential election,” laying blame on the president for election irregularities recorded during the 2020 presidential campaign.

President Trump responded to the Democrats second impeachment attempt during his presidency, calling it “absolutely ridiculous,” and the “continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics.”

Although McConnell touted the president’s right to challenge electoral fraud back in November, the Senate Majority Leader later informed Trump that he would recognize Joe Biden as the president-elect after the Electoral College announced its vote for the former vice president back in mid-December.

For the next two years, state legislators will be the last line of defense against a radical, leftist ideology invading every aspect of our lives.

Our federal institutions - especially, the judiciary - utterly betrayed America and the Constitution in their dereliction of duty towards seeking the truth in the outcome of the 2020 election.

And now, with the Senate in the hands of the leftists, freedom-loving Americans must DEMAND that our state institutions, and every patriotic state legislator, do everything in his or her power to oppose the assaults on our Freedom, on Life, on Family, and on Faith which are sure to come from Washington, D.C. after January, 20th.

Please SIGN this petition and DEMAND that state legislators, in every state, PLEDGE to defend America from the tyranny of the Left.

January 6th, 2021 will be remembered by patriotic Americans, for generations to come, as a turning point.

January 6th will be remembered as conservative America's vote of no confidence in official institutions. Simultaneously a primordial cry for freedom and a tragic scene where the last vestiges of law and order succumbed under the reality of current events.

Don't be mistaken: unlike so many politicians who are supposed to be on our side, the left almost always follows through with what they set out to do. So, yes, you can believe all of the predictions of impending doom for conservative causes.

Therefore, we must now DEMAND that our state legislators ACT to defend us from the federal government's future attempts to attack our freedoms, human life, the natural family, and our right to freely practise our faith.

And we, ourselves, must also be willing to strongly advocate for those freedoms, for life, for family and for our Faith.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition. And then, please take 5 minutes to contact your local state representatives using the Voter Voice link below. With Voter Voice, it really couldn't be easier.

Thank you!

McConnell also recently announced to the Senate that “every election features some illegality and irregularity,” but that “nothing before us [the Senate] proves illegality anywhere near the massive scale that would have tipped the entire election.”
