The entire Democratic Party’s impeachment moves against President Donald Trump just got destroyed on Senate floor by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell condemned the impeachment of President Trump in a speech on the Senate floor Thursday, saying a “slapdash” process had resulted in “the most rushed, least thorough and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history.”
The House voted 230-197 to charge Trump with abuse of power and 229-198 to charge him with obstruction of Congress. The votes were largely split along party lines: just two Democrats voted against both articles, Reps. Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey, who is expected to soon switch parties. A third, Rep. Jared Golden of Maine, voted for one impeachment article. Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, voted present for both articles.
