Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., accused Democrats Wednesday of engaging in a "never-ending impeachment parade, in search of a rationale" instead of focusing on the "American people's business."

In comments on the Senate floor, McConnell noted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the impeachment inquiry, "but really, we know that House Democrats have been indulging their impeachment obsession for nearly three straight years now."

He said "the impeachment parade kept marching along" even though "the facts" of the Mueller report "disappointed them" — and, ultimately, Pelosi "caved to the left and announced an impeachment inquiry.

"If this all sounds familiar," McConnell continued, "that's because at this time literally one week ago, the same Democrats were shouting about impeaching [Supreme Court] Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

"That rush to judgment was on the basis of a sketchy story in a major newspaper that promptly had to publish an enormous correction," he continued, referring to The New York Times.

"But one week later, here they go again: Threatening impeachment without the facts in hand."

McConnell said Senate Republicans "support the established proper procedures for considering this whistleblower report.

"While our friends across the Capitol rush to judgment and dive deeper into their nearly three-year-old impeachment addiction, we'll stay focused on the American people's business."
