Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continued to throw more cold-water on the Democratic Party’s Ukraine-Impeachment fantasy Tuesday morning; calling the entire process the “most rushed and least thorough” in modern history.
“It appears that the most rushed, least thorough and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history is about to wind down after just 12 weeks,” said McConnell.

McConnell rejected an initial offer from Sen. Chuck Schumer Tuesday regarding his requests for a potential impeachment trial in the Senate; calling his proposal a “fishing expedition.”
“The Senate Democratic leader would apparently like our chamber to do House Democrats’ homework for them. He wants to volunteer the Senate’s time and energy on a fishing expedition,” McConnell said.
“McConnell’s comments are the first time he’s responded to Schumer’s offer, sent on Sunday night, which outlined Democrats’ opening proposal on how to handle the Senate’s looming impeachment trial,” reports The Hill.

“The preferable path would have been an in-person conversation, which none the less, I still hope to pursue,” McConnell added.
