‘Grim Reaper’ Mitch McConnell Whines That Democrats Don’t Want To Work With Republicans

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who proudly called himself the “grim reaper” of the Senate and vowed to block every progressive bill from House Democrats, is now accusing Democrats of not wanting to work with Republicans and focusing their energy in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

“The Democrats would rather fight with the White House than work with Republicans and the administration to pass legislation. … Senate Republicans have been ready and waiting for weeks and months to do our part and actually make law on these subjects for the benefit of American families. We just need our counterparts across the Capitol to get serious about this,” McConnell said, The Hill reports.

Democrats are at the start of inquiry focused on whether Trump held up Ukraine aid as part of an effort to pressure the government to open up an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

Trump and his allies have lashed out at Democrats for not holding a formal vote to open the impeachment inquiry. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has said that a vote isn’t required under the rules and doubled down on Tuesday reiterating that they would not hold a vote.

But McConnell knocked Democrats on Wednesday, suggesting they were ignoring “fairness and due process.”

“All their energy is going into this all-consuming impeachment parade that has been rolling on for three years now,” McConnell said. “Speaker Pelosi’s efforts to hold back her left-wing caucus have officially crumbled and the House has thrown itself into impeachment.”

He added: “The Democrats’ process already speaks for itself. For the first time ever, Speaker Pelosi has simply ordered the House to conduct an inquiry into impeaching a President without a full vote of the House. Just yesterday, the Speaker doubled down on this unprecedented and undemocratic process by once again refusing to hold a vote on an impeachment inquiry,” he said.

Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) defended Pelosi, saying the “task was thrust upon them.”

“I know our colleagues in the House of Representatives did not run for office to begin an impeachment inquiry, but this task was thrust upon them by the president’s alleged conduct and the demands of our Constitution,” Schumer said, According to the Hill.
