Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said Sunday that the White House is preparing for a Senate trial should the House vote to return articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
In an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Conway declared, “We’re preparing for both eventualities.”
However, she added, the White House isn’t “clear right now” that it will “go to trial in the Senate.”
“You’ve got a lot of Democrats wringing their hands,” Conway said. “Many of those Democrats especially those in Trump districts have to go back home and say ‘I know I promised to lower your drug prices, I know I promised to keep the great economy going . . . but we’re impeaching the president.’
“They’re getting blowback for [impeachment],” she added. “Some are on record saying ‘we don’t know yet.'”
Some recent polling indicates that most Americans are not supportive of impeaching President Trump and removing him from office.
New polling done exclusively for Vanity Fair magazine found that impeachment ranked last among 11 issues of importance among voters.
