Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Tuesday said that it is unlikely that President Trump condemned and is removed from office, a Senate impeachment trial today.

McConnell appeared confident given, the knowledge that he has, that is, if the Democrat-controlled house votes to accuse Trump, the President is not found guilty in his trial before the Senate.

“I’m going to say, I’m pretty sure that’s how it is likely to end,” McConnell told reporters in Washington. “If it was today, I don’t think it will remove any question, it would not cause.”

NEW DEPOSITION TRANSCRIPTS RELEASED

It is two-thirds of the Senate takes to be condemned, to remove a President and get him out of the office. This means that at least 20 Republicans to play would have to vote to condemn trump, when he accused the Democrat-controlled house.

McConnell is also the question of whether the six Democratic senators currently running for President in the year 2020, would want to take the time of the election meeting to visit, what could be a lengthy process in the Senate.

“The question is, how long the Senate will,” he said. “How long is the presidential to candidate here on the floor of the Senate instead of Iowa and New Hampshire?”

McConnell added: “It is very difficult to determine how long this will take. I would not be surprised if it is removed at the end of not, the way the previous two have, with the President out of office,”

Neither of the last two presidents to face impeachment, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton were removed from office. Nixon resigned from office, before he was threatened with impeachment, while Clinton was accused, by the house, but was acquitted by the Senate.

McConnell’s comments came as house Democrats hundreds of pages of statements from two top-diplomats: Kurt Volker, the former special envoy to the Ukraine, and Gordon Sondland, the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union.
