An impeachment bombshell just dropped and Washington is in an uproar. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has something special planned for the Democrats, and they won’t like it one bit.
“I’m coordinating with White House counsel,” said McConnell, referring to the possibility of an impeachment trial. “There will be no difference between the president’s position and our position as to how to handle this.”
If the House impeaches President Trump, the issue will be transferred to the Senate — where McConnell and Republicans have the necessary majority to put an end to this witch-hunt quickly.
McConnell, appearing on Sean Hannity’s show, is drawing a clear line in the sand: The White House’s strategy will be our strategy. The Democrats won’t have any control in Senate proceedings. This is how it’s going to be.
He even doubled-down on his promise, making sure Americans understood exactly where he stands on the matter. “Well, exactly how we go forward, I’m going to coordinate with the president’s lawyers,” he said.
“So, there won’t be any difference between us on how to do this,” McConnell said. You can almost hear the fit being thrown by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) right now.
