McConnell: ‘No Choice’ But to Take Up Articles of Impeachment if House Approves Them
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday that the Senate would have no choice but to take up articles of impeachment against President Trump if the House ever approves them.
“How long you’re on it is a whole different matter, but I would have no choice but to take it up based on Senate rule on impeachment,” he said in a CNBC interview.
House Democrats have pushed for impeachment since shortly after President Trump’s inauguration despite the lack of evidence that any impeachable offense has been committed and they are now conducting an impeachment inquiry into a phone call Trump held with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. The White House quickly released a full, unredacted transcript of the call which showed the president did not coerce, collude, bribe or otherwise criminally interfere with Ukraine.
