McConnell Gets Behind Impeachment Trial

Donald Trump raged about the impeachment inquiry he faces in Congress and the Republican senate leaders.

Many in the Senate say they would have “no choice” but to allow a trial if the House decides to impeach.

Mitch McConnell put to rest any guess that he would use his position to derail impeachment efforts.

Republicans have been largely muted about allegations and inquiries into Trump says Reuters.

The House initiated an impeachment inquiry against Trump last week after a whistleblower report.
