Trump news latest: Trump calls for Mitch McConnell to be impeached as Oath Keepers message to him revealed

Donald Trump says Twitter has become ‘very boring’ since he was banned

During a round of appearances on right-wing outlets, Donald Trump this morning called for the impeachment of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, claiming that Republican members of Congress “have something on him”.

The former president’s hatred of Mr McConnell is well known, but there is no reason to expect other Republican senators to make a concerted effort against him. Mr. McConnell has invested heavily in the Senate midterm campaign, while Mr. Trump has used a disproportionate share of the money he has raised for his own legal bills.

Mr Trump’s blow to Mr McConnell comes after news that a key former aide, Kash Patel, is set to testify before a grand jury investigating the handling of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago after being granted immunity from prosecution.

Mr Patel is a close adviser to the former president and maintains a personal relationship with him. He was appointed as one of its official representatives to the Ministry of Archives and National Records.

Meanwhile, the Oath Keepers trial yesterday saw prosecutors reveal a message to Mr Trump written but never sent by the group’s former leader, Stewart Rhodes, who is facing chilling conspiracy charges in relation to the January 6 attack.
