President Donald Trump would never be mistaken for a textbook politician. He said he was different from other corrupt D.C. bureaucrats, and he was. Throughout his campaign, including his four years in the White House, his most resolute promise was to “drain the swamp.”
While Washington, D.C. is still a swampy, rat-infested cesspool, thanks to President Trump, many of the swamp rats have been exposed. The most corrupt D.C. bureaucrats belong to or work for the liberal Democrat Party. But not all of them do.
The GOP has its fair share of D.C. swamp denizens. Two of the biggest swamp rat Republicans each holds high-ranking positions of power on Capitol Hill. California Congressman Kevin McCarthy is the House Minority Leader.
Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell is the Senate Minority Leader. These men are currently the two highest-ranking Republicans in Washington, D.C. However, they are pitiful excuses for a conservative. In fact, on more than one occasion, they’ve each sided with radical Democrats.
Each is a prime example of narcissistic political self-preservation. They are D.C. swamp rats. A new book by New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin exposes McConnell’s true colors. Martin quotes McConnell’s comments just after the chaotic events of January 6, 2020.
When asked about President Trump and January 6, McConnell said to Martin, “I feel exhilarated by the fact that this fellow finally, totally discredited himself.” McConnell also requested intelligence from the New York Times correspondent.
The Senate Minority Leader wanted to know whether President Trump’s own cabinet, with help from the vice president, could remove the president from office. In Martin’s new book, This Will Not Pass, McConnell said he had conversations with both Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
According to Martin, McConnell was talking about drafting a joint letter between Republicans and Democrats asking President Trump not to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration. Mitch McConnell is just another deep-state, D.C. swamp rat.
This career political crook was sneaking behind his own president’s back to conspire with the opposition party. This is the same Democrat Party that spent four years falsely accusing and constantly harassing President Trump. McConnell doesn’t care if the 2020 election was a fraud.
All Mitch wanted was to force Trump out of the picture. President Trump is a threat to the entrenched D.C. swamp rats, including Mitch McConnell. Any politician in league with McConnell and the rest of these crooks must be voted out of office.
From the beginning, President Trump swore he would “drain the swamp.” The deceit and corruption in Washington, D.C., is far worse than Americans could have realized. The work is not finished. There are still disgusting swamp rats destroying our nation.
These crooked D.C. swamp rats will put up a fight, but if given the opportunity, President Trump will finish the job. We need to all join behind him to help “Save America” from these swamp rats, even the Republican breed.
