Senate Republicans vow to quickly crush impeachment trial of Trump if House proceeds with impeachment


Senate Republicans are vowing to crush the impeachment effort if the Democrat-controlled House passes articles of impeachment of President Trump.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is expected to ensure that the measure, which has caused some friction even among Democrats, would be over before it could gain traction.

Democrats in the Senate will remain largely powerless as although McConnell will have to act on the impeachment articles, it also requires 67 votes – a two-thirds majority – to convict the president.

“I think it would be disposed of very quickly,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham told The Hill on the viability of the impeachment process. “If it’s based on the Mueller report, or anything like that, it would be quickly disposed of.”
