McConnell condemned House Democrats for voting to impeach the president in a Senate floor speech Thursday.

"Let's be clear: the House's vote yesterday was not some neutral judgment. ... It was the predetermined end of a partisan crusade," McConnell said. 

Trump officially became the third president in U.S. history to be impeached after the House voted in approval of two articles of impeachment Wednesday night. The matter will move to a trial in the Senate, which is unlikely to vote to remove Trump.

McConnell has said he won’t be “impartial” about impeachment “at all,” prompting some Democrats to call for him to recuse himself from the trial.
