House Votes To Impeach, All Eyes On McConnell Amid Concerns About More Violence

House Democrats — joined by 10 Republicans — voted to impeach President Trump on Wednesday. Now the process moves to the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he hasn’t made a final decision — and that he’ll listen to the legal arguments presented in the Senate. GOP strategist Scott Jennings, who is familiar with McConnell’s thinking, spoke to NPR about why that might be.

No matter what McConnell does, Trump will not be president by this time next week. But between now and then, there are growing concerns about more violence in Washington, D.C., and in cities around the country, as NPR’s Greg Allen has reported.
