Hawley expects McConnell's final impeachment resolution to give White House defense ability to motion to dismiss | TheHill

"I am familiar with the resolution as it stood a day or two ago," Hawley told the news source.

"My understanding is that the resolution will give the president's team the option to either move to judgment or to move to dismiss at a meaningful time," the junior senator continued.

Hawley also said that he would be "very, very surprised" if the final resolution didn't give Trump's lawyers that ability and that he might not vote for it.

Earlier this week, McConnell told reporters that "there is little or no sentiment in the Republican conference for a motion to dismiss. Our members feel that we have an obligation to listen to the arguments."
