Presidential historian Doug Wead responds to ‘America’s Newsroom’.

Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., to co-ordinate would not decide for one side on Sunday when the question relates to Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell of the intention with the White house as the President Trump the impeachment proceedings have been threatened.

Kennedy argues instead that the Senate is in relatively unknown territory when it comes to the impeachment and the founding fathers, only limited guidance in the Constitution, when it comes to the process.

“There are no rules here,” Kennedy said during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union.”


Kennedy replied to the question from host Jake Tapper about the concerns of Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a Republican, about McConnell’s statements about working with the White house on the defense of trump.

“I think Senator McConnell is entitled to his opinion and his actions. So Senator Murkowski,” said Mr Kennedy. “There are no standards for this, there are no rules of evidence.”


Kennedy’s comments come on the heels of Murkowski voicing their concerns about the Senate majority leader’s statements.

On Tuesday, Murkowski said she was disturbed to hear McConnell say, it would be the “total coordination” between the White house and the Senate about the upcoming presidential elections impeachment proceedings.

“Fairness, when I heard that I was disturbed,” Murkowski KTUU said on Tuesday, before he said: it is the distance between the White house and the Senate should be conducted, how the study.

“For me, it means that we are keeping to this step, the hand-in-hand with the defense, and so I listened to what was said leader McConnell to think I happened to be the one confused further.”

In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, described his planning with the White house.


“We will work through this process, hopefully in a relatively short period of time in sum, the coordination with the White House counsel’s office, and the people, the representation of the President and the Senate,” McConnell said.

Murkowski was critical performed to the indictment process in the house of representatives, describing it as rushed.


Murkowski says the Senate is now called upon to cure defects in the evidence presented at trial, particularly when it comes to whether important witnesses should be presented to testify, including the chief of staff of the White house and Mick Mulvaney and former national security adviser John Bolton.

“How we deal with the witnesses, it remains to be seen,” Murkowski said, before he said: should have gone to the house, to the courts, if a witness refused to in front of the Congress.

Murkowski also spoke of their desire for a “full and fair trial”, possibly with the impeachment hearings of President Clinton as a template.

Murkowski remained undecided how they would vote, if the examination takes place. “For me, pre-empt and say that there is nothing or on the other side, he should be charged, yesterday, that is wrong, in my view, that is wrong.”
