Really bad day for sane conservatism. Today, Mitch McConnell said he'd support Trump as the GOP nominee in 2024. Two weeks ago, McConnell blamed Trump for the Capitol assault. And Chip Roy condemned Liz Cheney for saying what she's said all along - and what he said last month.

I keep wondering if Barack Obama would’ve urged thousands of black and brown people to travel from wherever they live to United States Capitol to dispute the electoral college votes, kill, kidnap, and hang republicans — how Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul would have voted today?

JUST IN: Sen. McConnell on Capitol insurrection: "The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people, and they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government which they did not like."

MCCONNELL on the rioters who invaded the Capitol on Jan 6: "The mob was fed lies...they were provoked by the President and other powerful people"

NEW: McConnell believes Trump committed impeachable offenses, believes the attack on Capitol gives Rs a chance to purge the president and... McCarthy has asked colleagues if he should urge Trump to resign, is open to a censure w @maggieNYT  > :

Pelosi and McConnell need to investigate why: (1) the Capitol was so poorly prepared for today’s attack, (2) why police were taking selfies with domestic terrorists, & (3) why those guilty of insurrection were escorted out the front door instead of being handcuffed and arrested.

Two-thirds of the House voted to provide $2,000 in direct payments to the working class. Now it’s the Senate’s turn to do that—no excuses. Unless McConnell agrees to a vote on $2,000 relief checks, Congress will be spending New Year’s Eve in the Capitol.

Big picture on Nov. 9th: McConnell, the most powerful Republican in Congress, stands firmly with President Trump as the president fights his legal battles. Rails against "far left mobs," minutes after meeting with AG Barr at the Capitol. Wants "no lectures" from Democrats.

GOP leaders McConnell and McCarthy will not be at the Capitol ceremony honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg today. As @kasie  reports, it’s remarkable for a ceremony of this magnitude to be missing two top congressional leaders.

The US still faces a pandemic & economic crisis. Peaceful protestors are outside the Capitol demanding Congress act to end to police brutality. And all Mitch McConnell wants to do in June is confirm more right-wing judges. That’s cowardly, reckless leadership.

WATCH: A group of House Democratic freshman walked out of the Capitol toward the offices of Mitch McConnell to demand that the Senate majority leader hold a vote on House-passed bills to reopen the government.
