1/ Mitch McConnell rejected Democrats requests to have four White House witnesses testify during Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate. McConnell called the request to have Mick Mulvaney, John Bolton, and two others to testify a "strange request" and said the Senate will not volunteer its time for a "fishing expedition." McConnell's remarks came in response to a letter from Chuck Schumer, who outlined several procedural requests that he said would make an impeachment trial more fair. McConnell later said he's "not an impartial juror […] I'm not impartial about this at all." (New York Times / Washington Post / Politico / Axios / Bloomberg)

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
