Shortly after word of the planned vote in the House of Representatives, McConnell went to the Senate to fake a month-long delay in what he described as “arbitrary” in the submission of articles.
The delay has affected the plans of the various Senate Democrats running for president and has forced them to adjust their campaign plans that will lead to the Iowa rulings early next month.
McConnell said the trial against the Senate is expected to begin next Tuesday.
The impeachment would require 67 senators to vote in favor of the conviction and to form a simple majority of the body. That means at least 20 Republicans would have to turn against the president, provided all Democrats vote in favor of a conviction.
