CNN panelist compares McConnell’s Senate trial to an ‘all white jury for a Klansman trial’

[Ed. – Talk like this is intended to inflame passions on the left, and nothing more.]

A CNN panel got heated during a post-Christmas discussion when former chief White House ethics lawyer Richard Painter slammed Mitch McConnell and brought up the Ku Klux Klan.

Painter got the ball rolling when he pointed out the Senate impeachment trial is “a trial” and not a “political game.”

“The oath of loyalty is to the United States of America, not to Donald Trump,” he continued on. “These senators, Democrats and Republicans have an obligation to hear the facts, to hear witnesses, and make a decision.”

Trending: Vermont police collected DNA to help ID man who committed crime. What did the man do?

Then, he said this, slamming the Senate Majority Leader and evoking the Ku Klux Klan: “… Mitch McConnell … may think he’s a judge impaneling an all-white jury for a Klansman trial in Mississippi in 1965. That’s not the kind of trial we have.”
