Mitch McConnell Supports Merrick Garland – The Red Alert News

Mitch McConnell Supports Merrick Garland

In just the latest slap in the face to Donald Trump and conservative Republicans, Mitch McConnell has come out in support of Merrick Garland to be the next Attorney General of the United States.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will back Merrick Garland’s nomination to run President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice,” according to Breitbart.

‘I do,’ McConnell replied when asked by Politico whether he supports Garland for attorney general.

“McConnell opted against considering Garland’s 2016 nomination by then-President Barack Obama for the U.S. Supreme Court following the sudden death of Justice Antonin Scalia.”

According to Politico, “Garland is currently a judge on the powerful D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, where he also served as chief judge. Prior to being named to the federal bench, Garland worked at the U.S. Justice Department, where he played a key role in overseeing the criminal investigation into the 1995 Oklahoma City bombings.

During his confirmation hearing, Garland stressed his law enforcement background. Over the weekend, the Justice Department released a list of law enforcement groups supporting him for attorney general, including the Fraternal Order of Police, which endorsed Donald Trump for president in 2016 and again last year.”

    Dear Mitch – Do America a favor and retire. You are seriously not a player anymore. Until the GOP gets rid of the swamp creatures (and that includes you) most conservatives will look else where to vote and donate their money.

  2. Mitch realized that he is a political corpse, after Trump’s betrayal, and the Republicans would kick him out of the Senate like a dirty used rag. But before he is thrown out, he will try to do America as much harm as possible by helping Merrick Garland, like himself, a political corpse, to become the Attorney General of the United States.

  4. Glenn Snyder says:

You absolutely DO NOT represent the Constitution of the USA. Do you have a clue or have you ever read it! It’s clue you do not understand it.

  6. Just another do-nothing southerner. Can’t work with them, they don’t work. Good luck getting rid of the lazy bastards.

    • The Real M says:

      Please name southern people whom you feel are lazy and will not work. When you make broad open ended statements covering such a large percentage of America, you should provide names, other than Mitch, and facts to substantiate your accusations.
      I am anxiously awaiting your response. Thank you

    They know Garland will stop the investigation into the Biden family and his families corruption with the Ukraine. There are so many corrupt politicians in congress they need a DOJ candidate to hid any investigation that ties them to corruption. They are working for themselves and the people who counted the votes not the people who voted.

    • Charles Larson says:

      G., we can only assume you have strong evidence of all the corruption you claim you know exists. Funny, you obviously should lead the investigations , since you know so much about it. It’s amazing and astounding that you did not expose all of the Biden crimes and corruption years ago before the American people so “DUMBLY” voted for and elected Biden as President and he so strongly beat your candidate. What kind of moron are you to let our country make Biden the president with all your knowledge? Why would any politician support the people who counted the votes that they disagree with and claim they lied and stole the election for Biden? Mitch WAS on Trump’s side, right?

  8. Richard Hull says:

    Mitch MCConnell needs to move to move yo the left side of the aisle. Any Republican in Congress who ford not support the best president we ever had, who foes not support Christian Judeo values upon which the nation was founded beed to move to move over next to Piglosi. I would much rather see Senator Kennedy lead the GOP. McConnell, as are all demoncRATs ( except one ) is a waste of oxygen.

  9. Craig says:

    McConnell is a piece of crap. Washington has become more of a toilet than a swamp and it needs to be flushed.

    • Roscoe Roules says:

      I agree. What are you Kentucky Republicans waiting on? Flush the toilet and get rid of this POS.

  10. F F Tramutola Jr. says:

    Can McConnell make it any more obvious that he’s owned by CCP? EVICT HIM FROM PARTY.

  11. Old Mitch is part of the swamp. I heard Garland speak. He should not be in that position. He talks like he has dementia like Biden. Mitch is so different today. He needs to step back and look what he is doing. He is getting paid from someone. He will be sorry. What comes around goes around.

  12. Dull Knifge says:

    Until Mitch the traitor is ousted I am cancelling my auto monthly donation to the RNC. DON’T BOTHER ME WITH BEGGING E-MAILS. Like I said when he is gone I am back Dull Knife GOD BLESS AMERICA.

  13. Jean Shepherd says:

    Get ole Mitch out of there!!! He’s no more a conservative Republican than a Billy goat. He’s wishy washy and backstabbing!!! He reminds me of Circle Back JEN!!! He is No good for America!!!
    Just resign!!!

    • Duncan Conrad says:

      Well said, just perfect thank you for saying everything we have been thinking. Mitch is a communist spy. He is no American, he is a traitor to our country.

  14. Manasseh Kohath2 says:

    If McConnell is supporting this incompetent fool that tells us who owns his vote. The ORGANIZED CRIME RADICAL SOCIALIST PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST PARTY!!!

  15. Robert says:

    DITCH MITCH, I love it, a great coin of phrase. Someone should make that into a bumper sticker!!!

    Mitchie was either bought off by the democrats or has been a planted spy all along.

    Mitch lives in a universe where he does not concern himself with how his actions
    look to the rest of our country, nor does he worry that others can see his lack of integrity, values and morals.

    It is too bad that Mitch and the other Democrats (that is what he really is)
    can’t get vaccinated for the disease of greed, power and corruption.

    Finally, speaking of corruption and hate too, someone needs to see that another old hag like Pelosi needs to be put out to pasture so she can worry about her ice cream company.

    Does anyone out there have any suggestions on what Mitch’s new job should be? Maybe he should be shoveling out horse corrals, since he is now the new metaphorical symbol for that. Maybe his face should appear on a bag of horse manure.

  16. McConnel is toast. He needs to go.

  17. Mitch mcconnel got bought off look at soros.

  18. Franklin Steele says:

    The swamp is alive and flourishing on both sides. Mitch is no better than Schumer.

  19. Tom says:

    Both Party Leaders should be Tarred and Feathered for what they have done and allowed to be done to our great Country. They are power hungry and useless.

  20. Joh Blaikie says:

    What a disgrace he is!!Hopefully he’ll be replaced ASAP!!

  21. Laura says:

    SCREW MITCH MCCONNELL

  22. Don says:

    McConnell is as phony as a 3 dollar bill and my brother in law from Louisville would be rolling over in his grave with what this phony, gutless clown has done to the country.

  23. Curly Q says:

    Nothing McConnell does surprises me anymore. He is the biggest “turn coat” in the nation and to say that I would support anything he says or does would make me just as treasonous as him. Hopefully he’ll be replaced in the next election cycle for his job. Also, we need term limits for Representatives and Senators. If that does not come about we are destined to the insanity that has gripped the SWAMP!

  24. jo says:

    Ditch Mitch, he has lost it, he solely lost the 2 Senate seats from Georgia , and he tries to blame Trump, Trump has not lost one of his supporters, but , Mitch, on the other hand is totally out there with Pelosi, Schumer, and Jo and Ho right by himself

  25. jim dortch says:

    I would give money to see Mitch replaced wuth all the other rinos. We should move the Trump supporting politicians and 75+ million voters to a New Party(Patriot or Conservative) with the America 1st belief.

  26. Kenard Wamser says:

    Mitch is a back stabbing pice of dog dung.I sure hope he like unemployment.

  27. Robert Schweickert says:

    Mitch is a disgrace to all of us! He has let us own more than once. He is a complete farce as a Republican leader. He should retire as he has done nothing for the Republican cause. Trump is the best thing to come out of the Republican Party in years. Mitch should look in the mirror and see what he really is, a failure!!!!!

  28. rick says:

    The perfect example of why I won’t give one more dime to the “Republican” party until stupid, vindictive, lazy gas-bags like him are run out of the party! Conservative my ass! He works for himself, not for America.

  29. Marilyn M M Lindsay says:

    I could care less who Mitch supports or doesn’t support. In fact I hate seeing his scowling face. He has to be about the meanest and ugliest of the Republicans.

  30. Deb says:

    Mitch mcconnel has got to be go!!!!!!!! Hes no republican!!!!! Hes a demoncrat HACK!!!!!
