McConnell Lays Out Trump Impeachment Trial Timeline

An Internet Meme Finally Makes Mitch McConnell a Star - The Atlantic

While the left is split between wanting to hammer the final nail in Trump's coffin (through the Senate impeachment trial) and tending to its aggressive agenda of new laws, spending, and government control, U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) issued a statement today regarding his proposed timeline for the first phases of an impeachment trial of former president Trump.

“I have sent a proposed timeline for the first phases of the upcoming impeachment trial to Leader Schumer and look forward to continuing to discuss it with him.

“Senate Republicans are strongly united behind the principle that the institution of the Senate, the office of the presidency, and former President Trump himself all deserve a full and fair process that respects his rights and the serious factual, legal, and constitutional questions at stake. Given the unprecedented speed of the House’s process, our proposed timeline for the initial phases includes a modest and reasonable amount of additional time for both sides to assemble their arguments before the Senate would begin to hear them.

“At this time of strong political passions, Senate Republicans believe it is absolutely imperative that we do not allow a half-baked process to short-circuit the due process that former President Trump deserves or damage the Senate or the presidency.”

 

Specifically, Leader McConnell shared the following proposed pre-trial timeline with the Republican Conference today:

When the articles arrive, the House Managers would exhibit (read) the articles to the Senate, Senators would be sworn in the Members as the Court of Impeachment, and would issue a summons to former President Trump. While we do not know what day the Managers will choose, Leader McConnell has asked for this to occur on Thursday, January 28.

  • Someone needs to LAYOUT McConnell... if there ever was cause to expel a member of the US Senate McConnel fills the bill.

  • This Senator is a piece of garbage

    Weneed to find the senators with the backbone to remove him as Minority Leader....

    Lets think Rand Paul

    • Totally agree, but the rest of the RINOS who sold out Trump NEED to be removed.

  • McConnell is a COMMIE. Why people kept voting for him is beyond me. Him and graham are dinosaurs who should be put to pasture!

    • Sandra, not dinosaurs, TRAITORS, along with collins, murkowski, cornyn, sasse, and several others.  If all of the TRAITORS in congress were hanged there would only be about a dozen left, all republicans!!!!!

  • More Bovine Scatology from the top deep state TRAITOR who is married to a Communist China spy.  His wife's father is a bigshot in the CCP and he hates and fears President Trump because of the Treason he has committed.  People of Kentucky, why do you keepo voting for this TRAITOR?????!!!!

  • McConnel ruined the Republicans, not President Trump. McConnel wants to make sure President Trump cannot run again. He serves only himself. The rest of us will suffer while McConnel goes to parties with Pelosi, Schumer, & Schiff. 

  • Last time I checked McConnell lost the Senate majority for the rino party. Why is this loser and traitor still talking?

    • Paul, you asked: Why is this loser and traitor (McConnell) still talking?

      Can you say Dominion Voting Machine and rigged elections... fraudulent elections have no party preference.  Elecction fraud works wherever there is no law enforcement to stop it.
