Skip to comments.McConnell: If Trump impeachment trial were held today, 'it would not lead to a removal'

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said on Tuesday that it is unlikely that President Trump would be convicted and removed from office is he were to face a Senate impeachment trial today.
It takes two-thirds of the Senate to convict a president and remove him from office. That means at least 20 Republicans would have to vote to convict Trump if he is impeached by the Democrat-controlled House.
McConnell also questioned whether the six Democratic senators currently running for president in 2020 would want to take time off from campaigning to attend what could be a lengthy trial in the Senate.
The question is how long the Senate wants to take, he said. How long do the presidential candidates want to be here on the floor of the Senate instead of Iowa and New Hampshire?

What about tomorrow...Mitch wants Trump gone...he is as corrupt as Biden
It better NEVER lead to one Mitch...
how’s that for limb wristed, halfassed declaration that Trump is safe...for now. About as reassuring as a cracking sound under your ice fishing shack.
Mitch wants Trump gone . . .
Based upon his showing up and speaking at last night’s rally, The Turtle had better understand that, if he enables PDJT’s downfall, he will likely write his own political obit.
Remember, Mitch is up for reelection next year right along with POTUS—and President Trump is substantially more popular in Kentucky.
If it is all a sham, then Mitch why are you even entertaining it?
Certainly if you want to ram it through quickly?
You can simply ignore it.
DO NOT TRUST MITCH MCCONNELL.
MCCONNELL IS COMPROMISED
Any Senator who would vote for DJT’s removal from office bases on the so-called evidence the Dims have conjured up, would have to know that that would be his/her last term in the US Senate.
I see these gungrabbing babykilling progladykes calling McConnell “Moscow Mitch”. Wrong...it’s Beijing Mitch.
Gee, that’s comforting..</rolleyes>
I don’t think Mitch wants Trump gone
Trump is a great fund raiser for the GOP
And he knows that
Plus the judiciary
Mitch isn’t petty and stupid, he isn’t Paul Ryno
There would be a better chance at removing you Mitch than DJT.
This guy pisses me off with his tepid support of Trump. At the Kentucky rally he said make America great again. And that was it.
For the Chao Family, Deep Ties to the Worlds 2 Largest Economies
The family of Elaine Chao, the transportation secretary and wife of Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, has high-level political connections not only in the United States but also in China. That gives the family unusual status in the worlds two largest economies.
Through interviews, industry filings and government documents from both countries, The New York Times found that the Chaos, and by extension Mr. McConnell, prospered as the familys shipping company developed deeper business ties in China. Along the way, one of the companys boosters was Ms. Chao, who now oversees efforts to promote Americas own maritime industry, which is in steep decline as Chinas shipping sector rises in global dominance. Here are five takeaways.
Impeachment is a lot of bluff and bluster. It’s not going to happen.
Mitch needs to stick with getting more conservative judges placed. That’s about all we need from him.
We have one more YEAR to listen to the Death Rattle of the Democrats and it’s annoying as H3LL, already! Another YEAR of their constant yammering and PDJT WILL have a 50 state blow-out!
Trump. 2020. Landslide. MAGA! KAG! :)
