McConnell to propose impeachment trial framework today

Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will propose a framework for the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump later today, NBC reported on Thursday following a GOP call. McConnell, who was the majority leader before President Joe Biden's administration took over the White House, will send his proposal to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

The reports come as McConnell faces backlash from some Republicans in Congress who think he should not stay on as their leader if he votes to convict Trump.

The former president was impeached in his last days in office and is being accused of inciting violence ahead of the January 6 riots at the US Capitol.
