WASHINGTON (AP) Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran has joined other Republicans in cosponsoring a resolution that would allow senators to dismiss the Houses articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
Moran announced Monday that he is cosponsoring the resolution with Missouri GOP Sen. Josh Hawley. Fifteen other Republicans also are cosponsors, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The resolution is Hawleys response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosis delay in sending the two impeachment articles to the Senate for a trial after the House approved them last month.
