Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell secretly plotted with Sen. Tom Cotton, to prevent other senators from working with former President Donald Trump to reverse Joe Biden's election victory, a new book has claimed.
A book by journalist David Drucker, an excerpt of which was published by Vanity Fair, describes how Sen. Cotton and McConnell worked together in December 2020 and January 2021 to ensure that Joe Biden's election victory was certified as Trump worked to overturn the result.
Both Cotton — a vocal Trump supporter — and McConnell publicly objected to Trump's efforts to overturn the election at the time, but the report is significant because it describes in new detail how both senators tried behind the scenes to maneuver against the president, to whom they were publicly loyal.

Of course they did, they are both snakes who only represent themselves, not the electorate. For that they should be thrown out of the Party, but they ARE the GOP..
We knew this in January, it’s old news.
That’s why I say ALL incumbents must be primaried, even the ones who are sucking up to Trump, they cannot be trusted.
From his own bio. How trustworthy is Drucker?
“McConnell had publicly warned would see “democracy enter a death spiral.””
These contemptible fools. What do they think is happening now? However, for those two, that was only deceptive rationalization for stabbing Trump in the back.
Looks like Cotton’s career is over.
Don’t believe the Tom Cotton part.
He didn’t even have an opponent. Not sure he’s worried a bit about re-election.
Surprised at Tom Cotton but not McConnell….
That stated, without reading the book I wouldn’t know is this was truly speculative, innuendo or fact…..
Democratic operatives are desperately trying to split GOP from Trump supporters using propaganda prior to the 2022 elections…..
You’ll see a lot of this…… The other day it was Pompeo rumors….etc….
Just be careful what you believe…
We’ll fix their little red wagons after we fix the HUGE Democrat wagons.
What’s wrong with letting the chips of truth fall wherever they may?
They are in on the steal..........................
Cotton and othe RINOs should start wearing an eye patch. It helps single them out.
This guy Drucker at his core is a vile leftist. Sure he wants to destroy Cotton’s career. Cotton unfortunately does have to explain what he did or didn’t do to maintain his bona fides as a rational conservative.
There were no legitimate election results to overthrow in the 1st place.
Both are snakes.
I don’t think anyone is surprised by this. The same thing could be said for all or almost all of the “republican” senators and representatives. They worked to block Trump’s agenda and the desires of the American people, at every turn for 4 years. If we don’t clean them out, they will be glad to do the exact same thing if Trump wins again in 2024.
Well this will be his last term. He can forget any presidential ambitions.
I think some of the fraud non-believers down deep just want to accept the “official” outcome of the election and move on, and they’re happy with the “official” outcome.
Down deep they aren’t really non-believers but would never admit that.
