It’s probably best to be wary of Mitch McConnell’s enthusiasm regarding the House impeachment resolution. What is he envisioning, what is he hatching now? What’s he got up his sleeve? Is he yielding to mounting pressure from colleagues, or is he plotting his next move?
Even Rachel Maddow is excited about this, but another rep came on and basically said “Hold your horses.” Remember who we’re dealing with here. McConnell is shrewd, calculating, and still wants to bog down Democratic legislation whenever he can. The chess match never stops with Mitch.
It seems like the trip from quid pro quo to concessions and compromise can be a short one. I wonder what that will look like if the impeachment res passes.
