Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had words of warning for House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi – don’t try to impeach President Donald Trump as such a move backfired on the GOP in the 1990s.

‘Presidential harassment,’ he warned, can be a losing proposition for the party in control on Capitol Hill.

‘The business of presidential harassment – which we were deeply engaged in in the late 90s – improved the president’s approval rating and tanked ours,’ McConnell said a press conference at the Capitol on Wednesday.

‘The whole issue of presidential harassment is interesting,’ he noted. ‘I remember when we tried it in the late ’90s. We impeached President Clinton. His numbers went up and ours went down, and we underperformed in the next election.’

‘So the Democrats in the House will have to decide just how much presidential harassment they think is a good strategy,’ McConnell added. ‘I’m not so sure it’ll work for them.’

The Senate Republican leader was basking in the glow of victory on Wednesday, after his party picked up at least three seats in the Senate: North Dakota, Missouri, and Indiana.

Races in Montana, Arizona, and Florida are too close to call.

‘It’s a rare opportunity to see McConnell smile,’ the famously stoic Senate leader joked, his face cracking into a rare grin.

He said he has spoken to House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who is expected to be speaker next year after her party won control of the lower chamber on Tuesday.

Democrats have made rumblings about challenging her leadership but a serious contender has yet to emerge and she has given no indication she will loosen her iron grip on her caucus.
