    Blumenthal: Some GOP 'Have Very Severe Misgivings' About McConnell Impeachment Strategy $

    WASHINGTON — Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal stated Thursday that he believes some Senate Republicans are concerned with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's approach to working with the White House on how to handle the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the Senate.

    "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 Senator Murkowski did, and really hold Mitch McConnell accountable," the Connecticut senator said during “Capitol News Briefing” on the Connecticut Network.

    Earlier this week, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-AK, stated that she is “disturbed” by McConnell’s remarks that he is going to work “in total coordination” with the White House during the upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate, and that he wouldn't be "impartial about this at all."

    Her comments come after an interview the Majority Leader had with Sean Hannity on FOX News where he declared that "everything" he does "during this, I'm coordinating with the White House counsel. There will be no difference between the president's position and our position as to how to handle this, to the extent that we can."



    Blumenthal quipped that he hoped that if, in fact, some of his Republican Senate colleagues had similar worries, they would step forward like Murkowski.
    "I believe Sen. Murkowski is saying what a lot of my Republican colleagues are thinking, in fact, saying privately," Blumenthal said.

    He continued that McConnell is “sabotaging this proceeding by saying he won't be impartial.”

    Trump became the third president in history to be impeached after the House of Representatives voted to approve two articles of impeachment over the president's request of Ukraine to investigate political rivals.

    According to the rules expressed in the Constitution, during an impeachment trial of the President of the United States, the Senate takes an oath to act as impartial jurors.

    Will anyone else in the Republican party step up and say something. You mean to tell me that only Sen. Murkowski has enough guts to say anything? Wow! You really are Trump's stooges.

    Just Saying... how disappointed I am with you all.
