Sen. Murkowski ‘disturbed’ by McConnell’s approach on impeachment

Murkowski disturbed by McConnell's deal with WH

Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski said she is not comfortable with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell saying he will work closely with the White House on President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense.

In an interview published Tuesday night by KTUU in Anchorage, the Alaska Republican said, “In fairness, when I heard that I was disturbed.”

The House approved two articles of impeachment against Trump last week, meaning that once the House sends the articles to the Senate, the 100 senators must serve as a jury for an impeachment trial to be presided over by Chief Justice John Roberts.

“To me, it means that we have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense,“ Murkowski said, adding: “I heard what Leader McConnell had said; I happened to think that that has further confused the process.”
