Mitch McConnell has backed a resolution that will be introduced Thursday condemning the Democrats House impeachment inquiry.

According to The Hill:

Senate Republicans are expected to introduce a “Graham-McConnell” resolution later Thursday “condemning the House of Representatives closed door, illegitimate impeachment inquiry,” per a release from Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) office. 

McConnell confirmed to reporters that he will back the measure, saying "obviously I support it." 

Graham said earlier this week that he was planning to introduce the resolution, telling Fox News’s Sean Hannity that it “puts the Senate on record condemning the House.

It’s unclear if the resolution will come up for a vote. It would allow GOP senators, who have grown increasingly frustrated with the House, to formalize their opposition. But it would also likely fail to get the 60 votes needed to pass.

Senators have pointed to the Democrat's efforts to overturn the results of an American election. If the Democrats want to do this the Senators think the highest level of fairness and due process is required for such an endeavor.
