McConnell advised Trump to stop attacking Senate Republicans

Washington (CNN) During a face-to-face meeting last week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had some blunt advice for President Donald Trump: Stop attacking Senate Republicans.

His presidency could depend on it, McConnell conveyed to Trump, according to a person familiar with the meeting, which was first reported by Politico. If Trump is impeached by the House of Representatives, the Republican-controlled Senate will decide whether he should be removed from office.

As the House votes Thursday on a resolution guiding the impeachment process, Trump faces new pressure to keep Republicans on his side as he weathers the political crisis.

But neither he nor his team have offered their allies much in the way of strategy. And their key argument against the impeachment effort -- that it began, illegitimately, without a vote -- was undercut with the Democrats' resolution.
