From the KDP: ICYMI: Watchdog Group Files Ethics Complaint Against Mitch



In case you missed it, The Hill reported on Monday that government watchdog group, Public CItizen, filed a formal complaint with the Senate Ethics Committee against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R- KY). 

The complaint requests an investigation into “whether recent public declarations by McConnell violate his oath under the U.S. Constitution as well as the rules of the Senate requiring impartiality.” The complaint further seeks a determination on whether Senator McConnell has an obligation to “recuse himself from the impeachment proceedings.” 

From the complaint

Public Citizen requests that the Senate Select Committee on Ethics investigate whether Senator McConnell has violated the oath of office under the Constitution and oath of impartiality under Senate rules and, if that is found to be the case, take appropriate remedial actions through recusal from the impeachment proceedings.”
