' Everything that   Mitch McConnell decides to do will come down to the political ramifications for the Republican Party, and with each passing day Trump becomes more and more of a liability. A bus is ready in the waiting, and he will be more than ready to throw the President under it if necessary.There is no question that McConnell is waiting in the shadows, biding his time until he determines which way the wind is blowing. While the President himself may be too dense to realize it, he and others in the Washington circle know this has implications that reach much farther than the White House.'

"The moment that Senator McConnell makes the determination that President Trump could cost Republicans their hold of power in the Senate, or cost them even more seats in the House, he along with other members of Republican leadership will urge him to resign, or vote to impeach if he refuses to do so. The fact that support of impeachment continues to grow, while McConnell's silence gets louder and louder, leads me to believe that he is carefully considering this option. In the end, it will be McConnell, not Pelosi or Democratic Leadership, who could potentially bring Trump's presidency to an end."

As I've been telling Rob, nothing would cost congressional Republicans more than removing from office a President whom 80-90% of Republicans genuinely approve of. It's interesting how progressives continue to gloss over this very basic political fact of life. Democrats and Republicans inhabit two very distinct political mentalities. And it would seem that Republicans understand Democrats quite a bit better than Democrats appreciate them.

As for McConnell being the one to bring Trump down: that may seem like a savvy, insider's appreciation of how Big Time politics really work. But the fact of the matter is that Mitch wouldn't have a heavenly hope of getting re-elected next November if he did anything to bring down a President who is literally about 3x more popular in Kentucky than McConnell is that the moment (Mitch has a 30-34% approval rating in his home state).

So whom is he going to save? The President, his Senate majority, or his own seat?

So, let's just stop this silliness, please?
