With the results of the Georgia Senate runoffs coming in, many media outlets have called the races for both Democratic candidates, Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock. This would help flip the senate blue and allow all three branches of the federal government to be controlled by democrats, despite narrow majorities in the two chambers.

For a long, the Senate Majority leader has been deemed as the evil “Grinch” who comes to the floor of the United States Senate, only to spread discord. In some cases, that is true. He blocked 2000 dollar payments to Americans, which his own republican President proposed he do. He further went on to talk about the expense of feeding working-class families midst a Global Pandemic. The same man who advocated for the tax cut 2 years ago, which led to a higher deficit.

Donald J. Trump should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate.

Might I also add, Senator McConnell has long been a defender of President Trump‘s and just before Biden‘s Inauguration day, decided to back the constitution and the principles of the United States, instead of following the President, just because it suited him further down-ballot? His tenure as Majority Leader was disastrous for many as he decided to block votes and pass nominations, with only a decisive and partisan support package.

Flipping the Senate, now means that Americans will not have a greater check and balance system over Washington, with one Party controlling it. However, this party is willing to lead and unlike the GOP, which is at its lowest point it ever been, these leaders are here to defeat the Pandemic and help recover from what has been a global recession.

But here‘s why Mitch McConnell will never be Majority Leader unless he joins the Democratic Party. Mitch McConnell dreaded a vote on Washington DC‘s statehood, sponsored by DC non-voting representative, as it has a population more than the states of Vermont and Wyoming. This move would give it two Senators, which would of course be Democrats as the democratic presence is greater than 90%. It would basically give Democrats a significant majority for years to come and would greatly shift America to the left and perhaps pave the way for a better world. So you know what, it is time for Republicans to either kick Trump out of the party or join with the Democrats in defending the constitution from enemies who call out hate against Section 230 and past presidential trailblazers.

Coup d’etat at Capitol hill

But most of all, the reason for his fall will be remembered as the day democracy was brutally murdered. As congress held its joint session to certify the certificates of election results, President Trump incited violence just off the national mall where he held a rally and ordered people to somehow go to the prestigious capitol building and somehow overturn legitimate election results. In the process, they broke barriers, caused a national emergency by taking over both chambers of Congress, and made the joint session effectively close. In the end, The Joint session resumed, multiple were injured, four were dead, and democracy as we know it said it’s farewell on a momentous night.

Flipping the Senate, now means that Americans will not have a greater check and balance system over Washington, with one Party controlling it.

This incident has further caused discussion within the cabinet to overthrow the President and seat a more sane leader, the Vice President, to avoid further chaos. This all, amidst a Pandemic, a presidential crisis, and a delayed certification. Might I also add, while Capitol police were at the scene and some were seen doing their jobs, others were not, which raises questions about the integrity of the institution?

Later into the evening, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota also tweeted that, “ I am drawing up Articles of Impeachment.

Donald J. Trump should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate.

We can’t allow him to remain in office, it’s a matter of preserving our Republic and we need to fulfill our oath.”, and rightfully so because this incitement was not only an article 1 office, it was an article 2 one, too. It clearly broke all borders to show that there is no support for any kind of considerate behavior in the Country.

So should Mitch McConnell leave while he can, or should he be the one to impeach his own President? That is something the day of January the 7th will tell.
