Let’s hope none of this is true…
Recently on “Capitol News Briefing” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) claimed that a handful of Senate Republicans had “severe misgivings” about the way Mitch McConnell intends to handle Trump’s impeachment trial.
According to Breitbart, Blumenthal stated, “I believe Sen. Murkowski is saying what a lot of my Republican colleagues are thinking, in fact, saying privately which is this proceeding has to be credible, fair and honest. So far, Mitch McConnell is sabotaging this proceeding by saying he won’t be impartial. He will do the president’s bidding.”
Adding, “I’ve talked to anywhere from five to 10 of my colleagues who have very severe misgivings about the direction that Mitch McConnell is going in denying a full, fair proceeding with witnesses and documents. My hope is that they will say publicly what Sen. Murkowski did, and really hold Mitch McConnell accountable.” You can watch a clip of Blumenthal’s comments here.
