The Associated Press reports:
The top Senate Republican is denouncing the “unfair” House impeachment of President Donald Trump and reassuring Trump and his supporters that “moments like this are why the United States Senate exists.”
Sen. Mitch McConnell, in a Thursday floor speech, accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of being afraid to send “their shoddy work product to the Senate” after she threw uncertainty into the impeachment process by refusing to say when she would send two impeachment articles to the Senate for a trial.
A trial in the Republican-controlled Senate would almost certainly result in Trump being acquitted of the charges. McConnell described Trump’s impeachment as “the most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history.”
