U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has a message for Democrats as they prepare to take control of the House of Representatives next year.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports McConnell says Democrats in the chamber should avoid using their new majority to conduct what he calls “presidential harassment”.

The Kentucky Republican compares threats from the left to investigate many parts of the Trump presidency to the impeachment of Bill Clinton in the 90’s. McConnell says Clinton’s numbers increased while the G-O-P underperformed in the next election.

Trump faces pressure from the Robert Mueller investigation into Russia tampering in the 2016 election,  and Democrats have threatened to look into alleged ethics violations in the Trump administration.
