Impeachment momentum could be growing in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly told confidants that he believes President Trump crossed the line when he inspired a mob to go to Capitol Hill, touching off a violent siege.
Multiple outlets reported Tuesday night reported that McConnell is pleased with the impeachment effort and is “furious” with Trump and blames the president for Republican losses in the Senate that will narrowly give control of the chamber to Democrats.
Aides to McConnell’s office have not denied the reports on the record. Fox News host Sean Hannity, though, threw cold water on the reporting on his show Tuesday night, indicating that McConnell may not necessarily vote to convict Trump when the Senate takes up the impeachment charges.
“We did speak to Sen. Mitch McConnell’s office tonight,” Hannity said. “They said no, there is no conclusions that have been made. And there’s a lot of salacious nonsense in this.”
