United States Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell has hinted that the upper chamber of the US Congress will not impeach President Donald Trump.
The House Representatives impeached Trump on Wednesday as punishment for the Capitol Building invasion by his supporters.
Ten Republicans joined Democrats in the voting. The result was 232-197.
In a statement, McConnell suggested it was too late to commence a similar process.
“There is simply no chance that a fair or serious trial could conclude before President-elect, Biden is sworn in next week”, he wrote.
The lawmaker said even if the Senate commenced an action this week and moved promptly, no final verdict would be reached until Trump had left office.
“This is not a decision I am making; it is a fact,” McConnell declared.
He advised the US Congress to spend the coming days focusing on facilitating an orderly transfer of power to the incoming Biden administration.
