Mitch McConnell Must Recuse from Impeachment Trial, or be Expelled from the Senate

Dear Member of the Senate: We, the undersigned Americans of all political parties, call upon you to either secure the recusal of Senator McConnell from his leadership of the impeachment proceedings in the Senate, or force his removal through expulsion for violation of his oath and obstruction of justice.

Why is this important?

We are at a critical juncture in our democratic process of the impeachment trial of President Trump, and the future of our republic hangs in the balance. We must have a fair and open trial in which the witnesses and evidence which have recently become public, and those withheld or blocked previously by the administration, are brought forward and examined by an impartial Senate, and the President provides his defense under oath. He will then either be cleared, censured, or impeached based upon the facts, and our republic will be made stronger by our re-commitment to the rule of law in these partisan times.

The Senate Majority Leader has publicly committed himself AGAINST this very process by announcing publicly, “Everything I do during this, I’m coordinating with the White House counsel. There will be no difference between the president’s position and our position as to how to handle this to the extent that we can.” While Senator McConnell is entitled to his personal opinion as to the guilt or innocence of the President based upon the partial case so far, he can NOT be allowed to manage the impeachment process at the direction of the accused President. Leader McConnell, having repeatedly made his intentions to obstruct efforts for an open and fair-minded inquiry clear, must either recuse from any leadership role in the impeachment so that an impartial member may be appointed by the majority, or he must be expelled from the Senate for violation of his oath and blatant obstruction of justice and of the senate. Any impeachment trial conducted "in coordination with the White House Counsel" is a mockery of the rule of law, and if allowed, will mark the end of our Democracy.

Please sign and share this petition to tell our senators that they must either persuade Senator McConnell to recuse himself from any leadership role in the impeachment trial of the president, or initiate an expulsion process against Senator McConnell for violation of his oath and for his blatant and self-confessed collaboration with the defendant to obstruct justice in the most important trial in our nation's history.


Reasons for signing

  • Today is final vote to remove Mitch McConnell out of the Oval Office and Capital Hill today
  • Mitch McConnell is one of the dirtiest career politicians in all of Washington, D.C., with no concept of what the word "credibility" even means!! As such, McConnell MUST Either Recuse himself From Trump's Impeachment Trial or Be Expelled From the Senate Altogether!!!
  • He Knows " The Rules." Bulley. Mad Maxx
