Meanwhile, Republican Senator from Indiana, Mike Braun confirmed how the ex-president had finally gotten hold of a lawyer. Moreover, he added how discussions regarding the impeachment matter were well on their way too.
In addition, McConnell added how Trump did hire an attorney who agreed to a certain procedure of working alongside the mentioned process as well as timing.
On the other hand, inside sources confirmed how both McConnell and Senate’s Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer were currently working hard, behind the scenes, in terms of figuring out a timeline for the trial’s beginning.
