Appearing Monday morning on CNBC, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) stated that he “would have no choice” but to take up an impeachment resolution, if the House first pass a resolution to impeach Trump and sent it over to the Senate.

“The Senate impeachment rules are very clear,” said McConnell “The Senate would have to take up an impeachment resolution if it came over from the House.”

The Republican-led U.S. Senate would need a two-thirds majority vote to impeach Trump, but that is unlikely to happen.

There are too many  Senate Republicans standing by the president, so the potential Senate measure to impeach Trump is dead in the water.

Speaker Pelosi has formally announced an impeachment inquiry after the president was heard telling Ukrainian President Zelensky that he needed a favor from him.

“New and mounting evidence indicates that President Trump has obstructed justice, leveraged foreign aid to target political enemies, illegally blocked a whistleblower from Congress, and invited external interference into our elections,” stated Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D)
