URGENT – McConnell rejects Schumer’s call for witnesses at impeachment trial

(CNN) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday rejected calls from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to allow witnesses at an expected Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. “We don’t create impeachments,” he said in remarks prepared for delivery on the Senate floor. “We judge them. “”The House chose this road. It is their duty to investigate. It is their duty to meet the very high bar for undoing a national election,” McConnell said. “If they fail, they fail. It is not the Senate’s job to leap into the breach and search desperately for ways to “get to ‘guilty. ‘ That would hardly be impartial justice. “
