Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is also known as “Moscow Mitch.” Why? A Russian oligarch in President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle built an aluminum processing plant in western Kentucky to help his buddy create jobs. After the House impeached Donald Trump for trying to rig the 2020 presidential election, McConnell complained.
He spoke at length on the Senate floor about what a bad deal the impeachment was. Earlier, he announced that he was coordinating the Senate trial with POTUS and had already decided to let Trump go free.
Senate Minority Speaker Chuck Schumer (D-NY) took the floor and responded to McConnell:
‘do they want to allow the president free reign? We believe the House’s case is strong…but if the Republican leader believes it’s so weak, why is he so afraid of relevant witnesses and documents?’
The Senate has the power to overrule Chief Justice John Roberts on many issues, if there is a majority vote. The Democrats do not need to convince many Republicans to join them to gain 51 votes and win some power, such as having people testify. Schumer said:
