Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he is “confident” that the Democrats’ impeachment of President Trump will not lead to his removal from office.
Speaking to reporters Monday, McConnell said:
“It looks to me like the House is determined to impeach the president. I can’t imagine a scenario under which President Trump would be removed from office with 67 votes in the Senate. So I don’t know how long senators will want to continue the trial, but I’m pretty confident at the end impeachment will not lead to ouster.
