Mitch McConnell Says He Will Vote to Acquit Trump

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told fellow GOP senators via email Saturday morning that he will vote to acquit President Trump when his impeachment trial comes to a vote. McConnell, while saying his vote is a “close call”, he believes the Senate lacks jurisdiction as “impeachments are a tool primarily for removal.” McConnell also said concerns about a president engaging in criminal conduct in his last days in office can be addressed prosecution after he leaves office.

McConnell does not make clear whether the “close call” is one of jurisdiction or of Trump’s guilt or innocence.

McConnell’s statement was first reported by Politico’s Burgess Everett:

The Senate reconvenes at 10 a.m. EST and is expected to conclude today if no witnesses are called.
