Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell rejects democratic calls for the Senate to immediately condemn President Donald Trump, a decision that will likely allow the president to fill the last days in office. McConnell’s office on Wednesday made it clear to Senate aide to Democratic minority leader Chuck Schumer, according to Republican officials. The majority leader has sent a note to Republican senators saying the chamber will not return until Jan. 19, a person who has seen it says the impeachment trial will not begin until the first days of Joe Biden’s presidency. In a statement released after the House voted to prosecute, McConnell said, “Because of the rules, procedures and precedent that govern the trial for the removal of the President, there is no chance of ending a fair or serious trial before President Biden is elected.” Trump’s vote against the Trump incident last week is a quick, bipartisan condemnation that makes Trump the first president in U.S. history to vote against the riots that took place on Wednesday. McConnell has privately stated that he believes the impeachment of Trump would be a way to get rid of the party, a dramatic rift between the top Republican who has worked with the Republican president for the past four years. He wrote in a note to his Republican colleagues on the impeachment Wednesday afternoon that “while the press has been full of speculation, I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to hear legal arguments when they are presented. Senate.” #McConnell #CNN #New.
