(Matthew Miller) Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was reportedly lobbied by White House officials and some top GOP lawmakers to convict Donald Trump during his second impeachment trial, the Daily Caller reports.

“Mitch said to me he wants Trump gone,” a Republican member of Congress source reportedly told CNN. “It is in his political interest to have him gone. It is in the GOP interest to have him gone. The question is, do we get there?”
McConnell has pinned the blame for the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riot on Trump and his legal team’s rhetoric in insisting that the 2020 election was fraudulent.
“The mob was fed lies,” McConnell said on the Senate floor.
Republican support for impeachment in the House may reflect similar support in the Senate.
“There were 10 House Republicans who voted for impeachment. There were probably over 150 who supported it,” claimed Charlie Dent, a former Republican congressman.
“I have spoken to Speaker Pelosi who informed me that the articles will be delivered to the Senate on Monday,” Schumer said.
Former-President Donald Trump made history as the first President to ever be impeached twice. Democrats and some Republicans are standing behind the unprecedented effort to hold an impeachment trial for a President weeks after he has left office.
