The market's record-setting run means stocks and other investments are even more expensive, leaving critics to say they've gone too high. Trump at least until the Democrats hold a majority, which won't happen until Georgia certifies its election results and Sen. -elects Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are sworn in.

Trump said impeachment is causing "tremendous anger" but said he wanted "no violence". In December, the House of Representatives also passed a bill. We have been trying to send that message over.


"I think this [impeachment] is so ill-advised [while] Joe Biden [is] coming in, trying to heal the country, trying to be the president of all the people when we are so divided and fighting again", the senator said.

"Let the judicial system do its job, Brett", he said. Their refusal to demand the president's resignation and quiet plotting about how to address his conduct highlighted the gnawing uncertainty that they and many other Republicans have about whether they would pay more of a political price for abandoning him or for continuing to enable him after he incited a mob to storm the seat of government. We're a country of the rule of law. "Of course this guy should be punished, but how can we do this in a way that doesn't negatively affect a country that is still reeling from an ongoing health and economic crisis?" "I think that we should pass it and the Senate should take it up immediately". "Let the investigations go on and evidence come forth and then we will go forth from there". There's no rush to do this impeachment now.


A spokesperson for McConnell declined to comment on the report, instead directing the outlet to the speech the Republican leader made condemning the attack that left several Trump supporters dead, including a Capitol Police officer.

In the days since the attack, Mr. McCarthy has veered from asking Republican colleagues if he should call on Mr. Trump to resign to privately floating impeachment to his current posture, opposed to impeachment but open to a censure.


"It's ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous", he said. I'm still minority leader, and his agreement, he's majority leader.
