WATCH: Sen McConnell Issue Dems Stern Warning—And If They Were Smart They Would Listen

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned House Democrats during a Wednesday press conference to think long and hard before implementing a strategy of “presidential harassment.”

WATCH:

In the weeks leading up to Tuesday’s midterm elections, a number of Democrats threatened to open investigations into or file articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. And after gaining control of the House on Tuesday, it became possible for them to act on those threats.

McConnell, responding to a question regarding a call for the president’s tax returns, warned that such a move might not be a winning strategy. 

“Well, you know, the whole issue of presidential harassment is interesting,” McConnell began. “I remember when we tried it in the late 90s. We impeached President Clinton, his numbers went up and ours went down. We underperformed in the next election.”

This is not the first time McConnell has warned Democrats about a possibly flawed strategy, either. When then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid invoked the nuclear option for judicial nominees, McConnell warned him that he would likely come to regret that decision.
