On witnesses at the Senate trial, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said: “we'll be dealing with the witness issue at the appropriate time."
"I think it's certainly appropriate to point out that both sides would want to call witnesses," McConnell said.
Earlier today: McConnell said this afternoon at a press conference that the Senate impeachment trial will likely begin next Tuesday as long as lawmakers can get through a few "preliminary issues" this week.
This morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she plans to hold a vote on impeachment managers tomorrow. After that, the next step is for the House to send the articles over to the Senate. At some point after that the trial will begin.
