WASHINGTON (AP) – The leader of the Republican block of senators, Mitch McConnell, will vote for the acquittal of Donald Trump in the impeachment of the former president.
This was reported by a source close to McConnell who was not authorized to speak publicly about the decision and did so on condition of anonymity.
The news about McConnell’s decision was known on Saturday in what is expected to be the last day of the impeachment trial of Trump, accused of inciting the deadly assault on the Capitol on January 6.
