On Tuesday, according to the Washington Examiner, McConnell told a group of reporters, “My understanding is, based on a 1969 Supreme Court decision, we would have no option but to swear him in.”
McConnell was referring to a Supreme Court case in which the high court made the House seat an embattled Rep. Adam Clayton Powell Jr., D-N.Y., who was being investigated for corruption.
However, in an attempt to appease his critics, McConnell said that if Moore is seated, he would face an investigation almost immediately by the Senate Ethics Committee.
McConnell made it very clear how he felt about Moore, and let’s just say he’s not a fan.[contentcards url=”https://conservativetribune.com/mcconnell-concedes-must-seat-moore/” target=”_blank”]
