Bill Kristol theorizes twisted evil plot by McConnell to secretly two-time Trump on impeachment trial

Never Trumper Bill Kristol sparked a wave of mockery over an impeachment theory he shared on social media.

The founder of The Weekly Standard, the now-defunct political magazine, shared his fictional impeachment idea on Twitter wondering “what if” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is actually plotting to undermine President Trump while making it look like he is being “loyal” to him.

Kristol wondered if McConnell’s “true goal” was being accomplished in allowing “a little rebellion,” citing Sen. Lisa Murkowski who made headlines last week for her comments about the potential Senate impeachment trial.

In an interview last week, the Alaska Republican criticized the rushed and flawed process undertaken in the House of Representatives which, in a nearly party-line vote, charged Trump with obstruction of Congress and abuse of power. But she admitted she was “disturbed” by McConnell’s promise to be “in total coordination” with the White House counsel’s office in the event there is a Senate trial on Trump’s impeachment.

Kristol’s theory about some secret plan between McConnell and Murkowski sparked comments from Republican political operative Cheri Jacobus who also put forth her idea about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi withholding articles of impeachment from the Senate.

Jacobus, also a vocal Never Trumper, thought Kristol’s story line would validate her own which she put forth over a year ago.

Others offered an even “darker” theory:

And Jacobus continued to interject her thoughts in the Twitter thread.

Apparently her TDS and repetitive touting of her own work got old for some Twitter users.

But Many on Twitter unloaded on Kristol for his far-fetched fiction.
