Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Wednesday told Republican colleagues that he is undecided on whether to vote to convict President Donald Trump in the Senate’s impeachment tribulation in the wake of last week’s riots at the U.S. Capitol.
“While the press has been profuse of notional theorization, I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to heedfully auricularly discern the licit arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell indited in a letter obtained by The Hill.
McConnell’s remarks come after the Republican strategist told The Associated Press that the Senate GOP bellwether believes the president is censurable of committing impeachable offenses The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to impeach President Donald Trump on charges he incited an “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol a week ago.
The chamber voted 232-197 in favor of impeachment, making Trump the first U.S. president in history to be impeached twice. Ten Republicans voted along with Democrats, including Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo. Despite the House vote, McConnell declined to convene an emergency session beginning Friday to open an impeachment tribulation in the upper chamber.
“Given the rules, procedures, and Senate precedents that govern Presidential impeachment tribulations, there is simply no chance that a fair or solemn tribulation could conclude afore President-elect Biden is sworn in next week,” the Republican lawmaker verbally expressed in a verbal expression.
