Kansas Republican Sen. Roger Marshall opposes an impeachment trial for President Donald Trump after Trump leaves office. He argued Tuesday that a trial would further divide the nation. In a statement Marshall said that he will attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration Wednesday and leaders must ensure that “the levers of government are fully operational.” 

Fellow Kansas Republican Sen. Jerry Moran has not made a statement on a Senate trial. The House’s impeachment article charges Trump with “incitement of insurrection” over a deadly Jan. 6 riot in which a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol. Marshall condemned the violence but still opposed certifying Arizona’s and Pennsylvania’s electoral votes for Biden.
