Mary Trump has delivered a scathing critique of Senate Minority LeaderÂ Mitch McConnellÂ in a new essay, describing the Kentucky Republican as â€œthe most dangerous Republican enablerâ€ of her uncle, Donald Trump.
In a lengthy article for The New Republic published Thursday, the former presidentâ€™s niece also slammed McConnell as â€œthe greatest traitor to this countryâ€ since Confederate Army general Robert E. Lee.
But â€œwith the difference that McConnell has been trying to take our country down from within,â€ she wrote.
McConnell â€œhas always been expert at using existing rules and procedures in ways they werenâ€™t intended to be used,â€ wrote Mary Trump, who is now one of her uncleâ€™s most fiercest critics.
â€œAnd yetâ€”whether it was denying Merrick Garland a hearing, pushing through Amy Coney Barrettâ€™s confirmation, or ending the filibuster as it applied to Supreme Court nominees but employing it to block legislation that would expand voting rightsâ€”his anti-democratic maneuvers have been performed within the bounds of the system,â€ she added.
Mary Trump acknowledged a case of treason could never be made against McConnell but added it was difficult â€œto find anybody in modern times who has so undermined our democracy.â€Â Â
