Master Strategist

Oct. 25, 2019

As evidence mounts against President Donald Trump, Senate Republicans, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, are attempting to undermine proceedings by criticizing the House process.   This week, McConnell co-sponsored a resolution, alongside Senator Lindsey Graham, claiming the inquiry denies President Trump "basic fairness and due process.” McConnell is careful, however, when confronted with allegations about the President’s conduct with Ukraine. Frank Thorp V, Producer and Off-Air Congressional Reporter for NBC News, breaks down McConnell’s impeachment strategy and what options he may have if the inquiry comes to a Senate trial.
