Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell booted two Republican lawmakers from a powerful Senate committee on Wednesday after an unsuccessful attempt last year to oust him from his leadership position.
Sens. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) are no longer members of the Senate Commerce Committee, which oversees issues related to interstate commerce, science and technology policy, and transportation, and according to Scott, it’s personal.
“This is what happens when you challenge leadership,” Scott said in a statement to The Post on Wednesday.

what else is new?
that snake did the same thing to Scott Brown and Marco Rubio.
as long as republicans keep electing these people, there is no chance for any change.
His wife Elaine Chow probably has a lot to say about this.

What on earth drives the stupid turtle to hate Americans so much. Pos.
Uniparty gonna uniparty.
Cant wait until turtle is worm food.
Mitch McConnell is no Chuck Schumer

True. The point I made weeks ago was that the drawn out balloting fighting was going to end up pitting pro and anti McCarthy forces against each other, doing damage to our side.
Because the ones who opposed him would never see a bill passed and that would lead his or her home region voters to think they need a fresh face. Which might mean voting Dem.
I wanted him to bow out since his ego trip was promoting disunity (like McConnell).
Dems are united like a block of cement (as is their thinking since the New Deal.)
RE: The Back Stab Party....
McConnell was a big fan of Brutus!
That was one of the dumbest summations I’ve ever read here on FR
“That what they get for going after the RINO’s who hold the power”
Surprise! RINOs do not care about us and will keep spending us into a disaster.
Prep while you can, folks.
What’s next...Complete economic collapse OR World War 3? Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen!
Is it me or is it more obvious that we can see right through them more easily these days
I now understand how WWI and WWII came about and were inevitable. Guess which one I think will happen first?
Humans in groups are stupid.
The Chinese own McConnell.
PEOPLE of Kentucky, RECALL this fossil!
McConnell is PURE EVIL.
