Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is poised to violate his oath of office with his handling of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate, according to a constitutional law professor.

In a blistering editorial published in McConnell’s hometown newspaper, The Courier-Journal, Boston College Law professor and Kentucky native Kent Greenfield cautioned the Republican leader that his “loyalty to Trump should not overwhelm his loyalty to the Constitution.” If McConnell does not ensure that a Senate impeachment is conducted fairly, he could violate the Constitution’s oath to fair trials, Greenfield warned.
