GOP Senators: We Won’t Watch Impeachment Hearings

You know he won’t be able to resist:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says he will be paying attention to the Senate’s business Wednesday instead of the first day of the House’s public impeachment hearings. McConnell is one of several Republican senators who said Tuesday that they don’t plan to watch.

“Tomorrow, I’m going to be paying attention to what we’re doing in the Senate,” McConnell said when asked if he would watch any of this week’s scheduled impeachment hearings.

Other members of Senate GOP leadership said they would tune out this week’s House hearings and would only pay attention to the arguments of House prosecutors after the House passes articles of impeachment, if the lower chamber in fact goes that far.
