Moscow Mitch Has the Back of the Dark Lord of Mar-a-Lago

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday he is “pushing the pause button,” on the legislation to form the commission, which is expected to pass the House this week despite the opposition of House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy. That means the bill is likely to have a more difficult path when it reaches the Senate, where majority Democrats will need at least 10 GOP votes to pass it.

The very last thing that the Party of Trump wants is for there to be a detailed examination of the Jefe de Covfefe's failed self-coup. Their party has increasingly become an authoritarian party. Republicans, more and more, have given up on the idea of winning elections by persuading the electorate that their ideas are better. Their route to power, in their minds, is to keep people from voting.

In short, they don't believe in democracy.

And, like this guy:

They are willing to deny the truth of what happened on January 6th.

But we know.

Word as of yesterday was that there were 7 senate Republicans who favored having a commission. Perhaps McConnell has more sway on them than the truth, or perhaps their own elections may ride on them endorsing the lie, but maybe not.
