In the latest back and forth between former President Donald Trump and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Trump ripped McConnell for his criticism of the Republican National Committee formally censuring ‘Never Trump’ Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) for their roles on the Democrats’ Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

Trump was responding to comments made by McConnell a day earlier as he scolded the Republican National Committee for the censure.

New statement from Donald Trump: “Mitch McConnell does not speak for the Republican Party, and does not represent the views of the vast majority of its voters. He did nothing to fight for his constituents and stop the most fraudulent election in American history”

The Trump Response

President Trump came out swinging at McConnell’s comments. His statement said in part,

“Mitch McConnell does not speak for the Republican Party, and does not represent the views of the vast majority of its voters. He did nothing to fight for his constituents and stop the most fraudulent election in American history. If Mitch would have fought for the election, like the Democrats would have if in the same position, we would not be discussing any of the above today, and our Country would be STRONG and PROUD instead of weak and embarrassed.”

In attacking the RNC, and repeating the Democrat and media narrative that the Capitol riot was an ‘insurrection, McConnell said, “We saw it happen. It was a violent insurrection for the purpose of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election, from one administration to the next. That’s what it was.”

McConnell added that, “The issue is whether or not the RNC should be singling out members of our party who may have different views from the majority. That’s not the job of the RNC.” He added, “Traditionally, the view of the national party committee is that we support all members of our party, regardless of their positions on some issues.”

Fiery Op-Ed

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel wasted no time in making a statement defending the actions of the Republican National Committee. She also ripped the news media for their coverage of the resolution, saying:

If corporate news media wants to know why Americans don’t trust it anymore, they should look no further than the shameful, outrageous, and patently false coverage of the resolution adopted by the RNC to censure Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.

McDaniel also pointed out that, “as Chairman of the RNC, I have repeatedly condemned the violence that occurred at the Capitol on January 6th and do so again today.” 

Violence is not legitimate political discourse. Neither is abusing Congress’ investigatory powers for political gain.

Media outlets pretending the RNC believes otherwise are acting in bad faith, & their lies should be called out as cheap political stunts. https://t.co/gvbuqfjbFk
