Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., says not one senator can be an "impartial juror" in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial.

Rubio made his comments in a Thursday tweet:

"Not a single Senator can be an 'impartial juror' in the traditional sense of a jury trial in court:

"– All 100 have a preexisting opinion of @realDonaldTrump

"– 7 ran or are running to replace him

"– Sen. [Elizabeth] Warren decided to convict before the House even revealed the Articles."

Rubio's tweet came after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., acknowledged he is coordinating with the White House and is not an "impartial juror."

Meanwhile, Rubio, in another tweet, said his personal decision on Trump's political fate will be based on two factors:

"The Constitution provides no guidelines for how Senators should arrive at their decision. My decision will be guided by 2 factors: 1. Conviction carries a mandatory & extraordinary minimum sentence, removal from office 2. An alternative remedy is available, the 2020 election."
