"Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again".

After joining 42 of his GOP colleagues in voting to acquit Trump-who was impeached by the House of Representatives on January 13 for inciting the deadly January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol-McConnell said on the Senate floor Saturday that "there is no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the event of that day". The Senate did not get the two-thirds majority needed to convict Trump, although seven Republican senators voted to convict him.

In explaining his vote, Burr said Trump "bears responsibility" for the January 6 attack - which left five people dead, including a police officer - and lambasted the ex-president for using his office to "inflame the situation instead of immediately calling for an end to the assault".

"These criminals were carrying his banners".

However, McConnell said that he could not vote to convict Trump because he was out of office-a position rejected by most legal scholars and numerous nation's founders. Prosecutors in Fulton County, Georgia, said earlier this month that they were launching a criminal investigation into Trump's actions.

"The Defendants each meant to prevent, and ultimately delayed, members of Congress from discharging their duty commanded by the United States Constitution to approve the results of the Electoral College in order to elect the next President and Vice President of the United States", the lawsuit said.

Working with the far-right Proud Boys and Oath Keepers, Trump and Giuliani "acted in concert to incite and then carry out" the Capitol insurrection, according to a complaint by Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss.

"McConnell has no credibility on China because of his family's substantial Chinese business holdings", Trump wrote.

With his impeachment trial looming, the ex-president had been almost completely silent on politics since moving into his Mar-a-Lago country club in Palm Beach, Florida nearly one month ago.

North Carolina's Republican Party formally censured Sen.

He threatened to use his continuing popularity among the Republican base to support any Republican candidates - the next national election is in November 2022 - who support his agenda. Trump noted in his statement that he would back primary rivals against McConnell "where necessary and appropriate". Instead, the party issued a statement Monday noting that both Romney and Lee have faced criticism for their impeachment votes.
