Demings released a statement on Dec. 13 declaring McConnell unfit to vote in Trump’s impeachment trial after Senate leader went on Fox News to further detail his coordination with the White House on impeachment strategy.
“The moment Senator McConnell takes the oath of impartiality required by the Constitution, he will be in violation of that oath,” she said at the time. “He has effectively promised to let President Trump manage his own impeachment trial. The Senator must withdraw.”
Following the press conference announcing impeachment managers on Wednesday, when asked if she still holds that position, Demings told McClatchy, “I certainly do.”
