Hannity calls for McConnell to be replaced as leader over Senate trial

“Establishment Republicans have no backbone, no principle, no courage, no vision,” he said. “Too many politicians in D.C. are just far too willing to go along, get along, and protect the swamp, and that is why conservatives like myself are tired of these empty promises and your rehearsed speeches and never getting anything done.”

Hannity, who has previously called on Senate Republicans to reject the “impeachment madness” and not take part in the Senate trial, then called for new GOP leadership.

“We need new leadership in the U.S. Senate,” he fumed. “You can represent the people of Kentucky. You’re showing basically right now that you’re the king of the establishment Republicans that, frankly, have always had and remain to have contempt for President Trump, but more importantly, the 75 million Americans that voted for him.”
