The day of the Jan. 6 insurrection, after the weapon wielding, rabid Trump supporters had finally been cleared out and sent home leaving Capitol Police officers seriously and even mortally injured, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blamed Donald Trump and called the attack “reprehensible.” That didn’t last long.

The Lincoln Project, a group of former Republican political strategists, has gone after the members of their former party for supporting Trump at all costs to the party. Their latest target is McConnell, whose inconstancies and lack of a moral high ground have been obvious in the time since the insurrection.
After insisting that Donald Trump was responsible for the insurrection, he both voted against an investigative committee and changed his tune about supporting Trump should he run again and become the nominee for the GOP in 2024. Interviewed by Jonathon Swan, McConnell evaded questions about his flip-flop on Trump and asked if there was any moral red line for him, a limit that would convinced him to criticize the leader of his party.
‘I am perfectly comfortable with the way I have conducted my political career and I’d be happy to respond to any specificity to the term, what was it?…I am very comfortable with my moral red lines.’
