The White House and Senate Republicans reportedly agreed Thursday that a trial should be conducted if House Democrats decide to impeach President Donald Trump.
A group of top White House officials including counsel Pat Cipollone, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner reportedly met with top Republican senators to discuss a strategy on how to move forward with impeachment, Politico first reported.

This comes as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on November 13 that the Senate cannot dismiss the articles of impeachment against Trump, meaning there will be a trial.
“I don’t think there’s any question that we have to take up the matter. The rules of impeachment are very clear, we’ll have to have a trial. My own view is that we should give people the opportunity to put the case on,” McConnell told reporters after being asked about dismissing the articles of impeachment.
