McConnell wants the process to be short but if it does get dragged out it will keep the Senators who are running for president in Washington instead of on the campaign trail.
The majority leader told Sean Hannity that everything he will do during the president's Senate trial will be coordinated with the White House Counsel's Office.
"There will be no difference between the president's position and our position," McConnell said, "as to how to handle this to the extent that we can. ... We will be working through this process, hopefully in a fairly short period of time, in total coordination with the White House Counsel's Office and the people who are representing the president in the well of the Senate."
Hannity asked the Senate majority leader if he planned on calling witnesses such as Hunter Biden during the president's trial. McConnell said that such decisions will be left up to the president's counsel but told Sean Hannity that there was no way the president would be removed from office.
"The president's counsel may or may not decide they want to have witnesses, McConnell said. "The case is so darn weak, coming over from the House. We all know how it's going to end. There's no chance the president is going to be removed from office. My hope is there won't be a single Republican who votes for either of these articles of impeachment and Sean it wouldn't surprise me if we got one or two Democrats."
