Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey, the top Republican on the Senate Banking Committee said on Saturday that Donald Trump has committed impeachable offenses.
“I do think the president committed impeachable offenses,” Toomey said on Fox News’ The Journal Editorial Report.
Toomey did not say whether he plans to support the impeachment of Donald Trump but expressed concerns about the House politicizing the process.
“I don’t know what they are going to send over and one of the things that I’m concerned about, frankly, is whether the House would completely politicize something,” Toomey said.
The House already drafted an article of impeachment that charges Trump with ‘incitement of insurrection’ for the attack on the Capitol on Wednesday.
The article could be introduced as early as Monday and the House could hold a full House vote as early as the middle of next week.
But, according to a memo circulated by Mitch McConnell the Senate could receive a message from the House informing the upper chamber that it has passed articles of impeachment, but, the secretary of the Senate could not notify the Senate of the message until Jan. 19, one day before Biden’s inauguration, when senators are scheduled to return from a recess, according to The Hill.
