In a Fox News one-on-one, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) admits that he is “coordinating with the White House” on impeachment—abandoning independence and impartiality.

While the House of Representatives is responsible for bringing the official charges and approving the articles of impeachment, the Senate is responsible for the trial. The senators are tasked with hearing the witnesses and considering the evidence. Then, they vote to either convict or acquit with a two-thirds vote required for a conviction.

By saying “there will be no difference between the president’s position and our position,” McConnell is admitting the Senate trial will be a sham. He is essentially allowing the accused to run the trial.

Hearing the Senate Majority Leader’s remarks on Fox have a lot of people calling for his recusal.
