10 GOP Senators Have ‘Severe Misgivings’ About McConnell’s Plan To Coordinate With WH

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY.) has publicly stated that he plans to coordinate with the White House on a plan to make sure Donald Trump doesn’t get removed from office. Now, according to Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), “five to ten” Republicans in the Senate have shown apprehension towards McConnell’s plan.

During a Capitol News Briefing on the Connecticut Network, Blumenthal spoke on the subject of impeachment.

“I’ve talked to anywhere from five to 10 of my colleagues who have very severe misgivings about the direction that Mitch McConnell is going in denying a full, fair proceeding with witnesses and documents. My hope is that they will say publicly what Sen. Murkowski did, and really hold Mitch McConnell accountable,” he said.

Earlier this month, McConnell told the press that he “is not an impartial juror. This is a political process,” when it came to impeachment proceedings.

He also told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he planned to coordinate with the White House counsel during the trial in the Senate.

McConnell has received public criticism from at least one Republican colleague, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska). She claimed that she was “disturbed” by McConnell’s comments to Hannity.

Blumenthal said he hoped that if some of his Republican colleagues had the same worries, they would come forward like Murkowski did.

“I believe Sen. Murkowski is saying what a lot of my Republican colleagues are thinking, in fact, saying privately,” he said.

The senator concluded his remarks by stating that McConnell is “sabotaging this proceeding by saying he won’t be impartial,” echoing other Democratic criticisms.
