McConnell threatens to pass ‘partisan’ impeachment rules if he can’t get Schumer to be reasonable

(TNS) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell seems to be expecting the very partisan Democrat-run House will formally return articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, so he’s already gearing up for a trial.



The thing is, he obviously knows this is all a scam and that the Garbage Party has been plotting the president’s demise since the night he beat Hillary Clinton.

As such, the Kentucky Republican doesn’t appear to be in any mood for more Democrat nonsense. He said on Tuesday that he’ll go to the GOP majority to settle on rules for a Senate trial if he can’t get any reasonable recommendations from Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

“It would depend on what we could agree to,” McConnell said in reference to a bipartisan deal, according to The Hill.

“That failing, I would probably come back to my own members and say, ‘OK, can 51 of us agree [on] how we’re going to handle this?’”’

And failing that, TownHall noted:

Here’s where things get messy: the trial could last five to six weeks, depending on how much time the Senate gives House impeachment managers to make their case and the president’s defense team to provide a rebuttal. But if McConnell and Schumer cannot come to a deal and the Majority Leader cannot find 51 Republicans in the conference to agree on a set of rules, a series votes on individual motions – from floor time to summoning witnesses – would take place.  

“My assumption is once you heard the arguments on both sides, motions would be made. My suspicion is the chief justice would not want to rule on those,” McConnell said, referencing Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who would sit as the Judiciary head of any impeachment trial.

“He would submit them to the Senate, and 51 of us would decide on a case-by-case basis how to go forward.”

McConnell appears to be acutely aware of the hyper-partisan nature of this impeachment sham and thus figures that Democrats aren’t going to be reasonable because why would they — they haven’t been thus far.

By comparison, when Bill Clinton was impeached in the late 1990s, the Senate voted quickly 100-0 on a bipartisan set of rules.

My, how times have changed.

This is why we Republicans can’t ever win. McConnell SHOULD pass the SAME “partisan” impeachment rules that Dems did. Actually, McConnell should laugh this Democrat SCAM right off of Capitol Hill. But instead he’ll hand them the reigns (as usual) and it will look like the Dems are in control all over again.

No deals with Schumer or any of the dem seditionists. They had their way in the house, now the shoes on the other foot. Why should republicans act any differently than what was done by the democrats?

The readers here realize what a phony Mitch is. He has 2 active investigations on Trump underway. He blocks any investigations of the coup & FISA abuse. He has major financial interests in Chinese government industry. He keeps conservatives out of the senate.

No informed conservative or patriot supports Mitch.
