Moderate GOP senator 'disturbed' by McConnell's coordination with White House – CNN, CNN


Washington (CNN)Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska said she is “disturbed” by coordination between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the White House over the upcoming Senate impeachment trial.

Senate leaders have yet to reach an agreement on the rules of the trial, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not sent the Senate the impeachment articles necessary to begin the proceedings. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has called for the Senate to pursue witnesses and documents, which McConnell opposes, leading to a holiday impasse and uncertainty as to when the trial will begin.

But Murkowski McConnell had “confused the process” by saying he was acting in“total coordination”with the White House on setting the parameters for the trial.

“And in fairness, when I heard that, I was disturbed,” Murkowski toldKTUU, a CNN affiliate.
