McConnell Says ‘There’s No Question’ Senate Won’t Remove Trump: ‘Nothing Is Happening’
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) spoke with reporters in Kentucky on Monday and said that he “can’t imagine a scenario” where the Senate would remove Donald Trump from office.
According to USA Today, McConnell said, “I can’t imagine a scenario under which President Trump would be removed from office with 67 votes in the Senate.”
He then went on to attack Democrats, accusing them of having “Trump derangement syndrome.”
“Nothing is happening because House Democrats seized with Trump derangement syndrome are consumed with this argument with the president,” McConnell said.
McConnell did say that they would take up the matter but claimed that it most likely will not pass in the Senate.
“I don’t think there’s any question that we have to take up the matter. The rules of impeachment are very clear, we’ll have to have a trial. My own view is that we should give people the opportunity to put the case on,” he said.
