January 1, McConnell Denounces the RNC’s Decision to Censure GOP Lawmakers

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) criticized the Republican National Committee’s resolution to censure two GOP lawmakers, saying that it’s “not the job” of the RNC to single out Republicans who disagree with the party.

“Traditionally, the view of the national party committee is that we support all members of our party, regardless of their positions on some issues,” McConnell said during a news conference.

“The issue is whether or not the RNC should be singling out members of our party who may have different views from the majority. That’s not the job of the RNC.”

Last week, the RNC voted to censure Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) for serving on the Jan. 6 select committee. In the resolution, the RNC argued that Cheney and Kinzinger are “participating in a Democratic-led persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse.”

The verbiage used in the RNC’s resolution sparked backlash, both from Democrats and other members of the GOP.

“Shame falls on a party that would censure persons of conscience, who seek truth in the face of vitriol,” Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) tweeted on Friday.

McConnell also spoke out against the RNC’s categorization of Jan. 6, calling it “a violent insurrection.”

“It was a violent insurrection for the purpose of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election, from one administration to the next. That’s what it was,” McConnell said.

    You’re RIGHT mitch; Not Censured, Removed. When communism, globalism, OR/AND nihilism of our republic is promoted, it is past the time for censure. Too bad you didn’t try to correct them earlier (along with several dozen other In-Name-Onlies).

        I think Mitch McConnell is a learned hack, a ReFLUBican, (just like many in the GOP) who make their own self interests more important than the doctrines that help the people of the USA. And I am not a DemoncRAT. I voted for Trump in 2020 and 2016. ❤️❤️

        It amazes me that the Democrat Party’s ONLY RULE seems to be; to do what they are told by Pelosi and Schumer. I agree that members of both Parties should “vote their Conscience” but unfortunately when we have a 50/50 split in the Senate and they have a slim majority in the House, this leads to disaster! The reason I use the term “disaster” is because the current Democrat Party is trying to destroy America as created by Our Constitution! Since they snuck into the White House they have created Crisis after Crisis after Crisis which must be stopped!

    If the RNC doesn’t censure these and several other Rinos, you won’t be getting any donations. I won’t be giving my money to support them for their reelections. They need to be purged from the RNC along with you, China Mitch. You are more interested in protecting your China investments than our country and citizens.

      “IF”? – That’s not how to spell “BECAUSE.” I agree with you, Judy. Tip O’neil is credited with “All politics is local,” that’s where we should give, knowing the message WILL filter up. Starting with Soros-funded Attorney Generals and State Reps/ Sens.

    Proving once a for all how anti-Trump he is. Don’t chastise them for what they did, but chastise everybody else for what they did. Mitch you’ve gotten to be a real joke. Or maybe you get too much Chinese money.

    A GOP without dissent ceases to represent all aspects of conservative thought.
    I can’t believe Romney finally got something right, but he did when he said
    ““Shame falls on a party that would censure persons of conscience”

    You and Romney make a good pair. We have two republicans on this committee and not one of them will speak up and get the truth out. If Pelousy would have done her job this would have never taken place. But this committee will never bring out the truth and the real reason this all came about. This committee is not out for the truth it is for saving the democratic party for causing this whole thing.

    Jan 6 was a violent event – but the violence did NOT come from Trump’s People.
    Jan 6 was a FALSE FLAG maneuver by Marxist elements, to discredit Trump’s People!

      The only disturbances, insurrection and crimes committed at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C, on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021 were planned, staged and carried out by the seditious DNC/FBI/DC Capitol Police/ANTIFA crisis actors. …like FBI plant Ray Epps!

    The Rino herd is protecting their own and they are all going down because they touched God’s anointed President Trump.
