Protesters celebrate McConnell following fake press release saying he will vote to convict Trump

Three activists with the self-described "antifascist collective" Shut Down DC celebrated Senator Mitch McConnell outside his house Monday afternoon following a fake press release claiming he intended to vote to convict President Trump. "We love Mitch! Only today!" the group chanted before leaving flowers at his doorstep. McConnell has not said he would vote to convict and previously "yes" on a failed vote proposed by Senator Rand Paul to dismiss the impeachment charge.
