Trump said Oct. 3 that he spoke with McConnell about the Zelensky call, and McConnell called it "innocent."

“Trump… Donald Trump… there’s a name I haven’t heard in some time… “
Say what you will about #MoscowMitch’s ethic — like many of his fellow Repubs, he has but the one: What’s in it for *me*? — his sensitivity to changes in the political weather is unparalleled.
And concerning Trump’s new best dictator friend:

Unless the Oval Office Occupant’s handlers can hide his phone again, signs point to (more) twitter-tantrums.

Anthony Scaramucci on Donald Trump: “He may or may not have early-stage dementia, but he definitely has early-stage fascism . . . This guy has the self-esteem of a small pigeon.” #VFSummit pic.twitter.com/eAYUdI6Kv6

… “In the next three to six weeks, there will be more damning information related to the president” released, Scaramucci predicted. “He’s aware of it. I believe that [Mitch] McConnell will eventually go to him and say, ‘Hey, man. You’ve gotta take one for the team…you’ve gotta go back.’ He’ll probably end up back at Mar-a-Lago or something.” Though he says he hasn’t had a personal conversation with McConnell, who “plays his cards very close to the vest,” Scaramucci said he has “talked to a legion of people” who see the tables beginning to turn. “For someone like McConnell,” he acknowledges, “it’s going to take a little more lawless activity exposure.” But, he predicted, the evidence of more high crimes and misdemeanors will be forthcoming: “We’ll eventually uncover that something happened between him and the president of Turkey to have him disavow the Kurds the way he did. I believe there’s a personal transaction embedded there as well.”
“I predict he will be out of office before the next election,” Scaramucci continued, adding that Nancy Pelosi is “like my favorite Italian now at this point.” Trump will “either be out the way Lyndon Johnson was out, or he’s going to resign from office. I do believe he’s cornered now, and as the facts unfold, they’re so overwhelming in their criminality that he’ll be out of office.”…
Just spoke to a GOP source close to McConnell, on the politics of impeachment: "This is shaping up to be a very dark moment for the Trump White House."
