9:25 p.m.: Mitch McConnell has not decided to vote for on against the impeachment of Donald Trump
The leader of the Republicans in the Senate sent an email to his colleagues, explaining that he had not made his decision and would listen to the arguments during the trial (if it takes place). But the takeaway here is that he indicates that he is not opposed to impeachment or possible impeachment.
McConnell sends an email to his colleagues, which says: “While the press has been full of speculation, I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate.”

Mitch McConnell has never been a strong supporter of Donald Trump. But so far, their interests have been aligned: McConnell has confirmed more than 300 Tory justices, and 3 in the Supreme Court. But he believes that Donald Trump, by attacking the integrity of the ballot, cost Republicans the victory in the Senate in Georgia. According to leaks in the New York Times and the Washington Post, he would therefore welcome impeachment, believing that this is the perfect time to “purge” the Trumpism of the party.
