House Judiciary Committee member Mike Johnson, R-La., dismissed a claim by a committee Democrat Friday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is unfit to oversee an impeachment trial of President Trump.

Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., claimed McConnell’s recent interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity proved he was not impartial enough to run the proceedings responsibly.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Senator McConnell has promised to sabotage that trial and he must recuse himself,” said Demings, a former Orlando police chief, later adding that “No court in the country would allow a member of the jury to also serve as the accused’s defense attorney.”

“I think it’s absurd,” Johnson said of Demings’ claim during an appearance on the Tucker Carlson show Friday night, hosted by Brian Kilmeade.

“Everybody in the country now has seen the record. They’ve seen the facts and they’ve seen what supposedly is backing up these articles of impeachment — and there’s nothing there,” Johnson said.

Demings has blasted out a series of statements on Twitter, insisting that McConnell must recuse himself from any impeachment trial against President Trump.
