Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Mark Kelly isn’t taking a position yet on whether President Donald Trump should be removed from office, saying he’ll wait for the upcoming Senate trial before making a decision.

For now, Kelly is focusing on the process and questioning the way Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is planning to carry out the Senate trial.

“I’ve said from the beginning that the president’s conduct should be investigated and if I were in the Senate today, my focus would be on ensuring a fair trial so that we could examine all of the evidence and hear from all relevant witnesses,” Kelly said in a statement issued by the campaign. “The facts, not politics, should guide our decisions here, and I’m concerned Mitch McConnell has made it clear he has no intention of being an impartial juror, and that too many are taking their cues from him instead of the rule of law.”
