Mitch McConnell is not what you would call ‘aggressive’. However, he is warning the Democrats who now control the House of Representatives (and not for the first time) to check themselves before they launch attacks against President Trump. He said they should think long and hard before implementing a strategy of “presidential harassment.”
Many of the radical Democrats on the left such as Maxine Waters and others have threatened Trump incessantly with impeachment. They have stirred up violence among their followers and they are employing lawfare at every turn to stop the president’s agenda of making America great again. The Daily Caller has more on McConnell’s warning:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned House Democrats during a Wednesday press conference to think long and hard before implementing a strategy of “presidential harassment.”
In the weeks leading up to Tuesday’s midterm elections, a number of Democrats threatened to open investigations into or file articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. And after gaining control of the House on Tuesday, it became possible for them to act on those threats.
McConnell, responding to a question regarding a call for the president’s tax returns, warned that such a move might not be a winning strategy.
“Well, you know, the whole issue of presidential harassment is interesting,” McConnell began. “I remember when we tried it in the late 90s. We impeached President Clinton, his numbers went up and ours went down. We underperformed in the next election.”
“So the Democrats in the House will have to decide just how much presidential harassment they think is good strategy,” McConnell concluded. “I’m not so sure it will work for them.”
