McConnell said pleased with Trump impeachment as 3 Republicans vow to back move

The report came as three Republicans, including third-ranking House GOP leader Liz Cheney of Wyoming, announced they would vote to impeach Trump, cleaving the party’s leadership.

“The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack,” said Cheney in a statement. “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.”

Cheney’s announcement marks the first time since Richard Nixon’s resignation in 1974 that a leader of the president’s own party has backed impeachment.
