Just breaking on MSNBC. Below is The New York Times link. So, if true, will McConnell expedite Senate impeachment proceedings - or continue to drag his feet?

Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, has told associates that he believes President Trump committed impeachable offenses and that he is pleased that Democrats are moving to impeach him, believing that it will make it easier to purge him from the party, according to people familiar with his thinking. The House is voting on Wednesday to formally charge Mr. Trump with inciting violence against the country.

Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, has indicated that he wants to see the specific article of impeachment that the House is set to approve on Wednesday, which is expected to draw support from as many as a dozen Republicans, potentially including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 in the House. But he has made clear in private discussions that he believes now is the moment to move on from the weakened lame duck, whom he blames for causing Republicans to lose the Senate.

McConnell is said to be pleased about impeachment, believing it will be easier to purge Trump from the G.O.P.

Another fake news lie. It claims he’s “happy” that Dems are doing it, so the GOP can be rid of him.

McConnell is a moron if he thinks the majority of those 80 million voters for President Trump are going to back him or his horrid policies in any way in the future.

So exactly who are those associates that he told? No named sources in the linked article.

It's obvious McConnell was not planning to run again.
