As things stand at the moment, it’s looking like the full House could vote on articles of impeachment as early as next week. If the House does indeed vote to impeach the president, the process would then transfer to the Senate for a trial.
The current Democrat angle of attack to delegitimize a potential Senate trial by highlighting recent comments from Mitch McConnell about coordinating with the White House while totally ignoring a recent clarification from Tom Daschle, who was the Majority Leader during the impeachment trial of then-President Clinton:
. @TomDaschle tells me just now: "My former staff reminded me this morning that while I was not in contact with the White House during the trial, they were. There was a need to coordinate on many levels. So I want to be sure that I didn't give you the wrong impression." https://t.co/d3sAvtM5l7
