WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is seriously considering turning his back on President Donald Trump during an impeachment trial, reports say.
According to Axios’ Mike Allen, citing sources, there is a “better than 50/50 chance” that McConnell will vote to convict the current President.
McConnell has already “told associates that he believes President Trump committed impeachable offenses and that he is pleased that Democrats are moving to impeach him, believing that it will make it easier to purge him from the party,” The New York Times reported earlier in the day.
