Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) met with Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) on Wednesday as he tries to lock down the votes to block new witnesses in President Trump’s impeachment trial.

Murkowski largely declined to discuss her current thinking on calling witnesses but confirmed to reporters that she had met with the GOP leader.

“I am not going to be discussing the witness situation right now,” she said.

She added that she was focused on the upcoming two-day question-and-answer period and had been in talks with GOP leadership staff about how to get her questions answered.

“I’ve got some more questions that I want to get into the mix,” she said. “I’ve been talking to the folks in the cloakroom to see what the universe is, and how we can supplement that.”
