There is one real point behind Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announcing he would work with the president on his impeachment trial. Do Americans want Russia to elect Donald Trump again? It is almost beyond comprehension that the man nicknamed “Moscow Mitch’ and Trump are working together to throw the election to him, to give him absolutely no limits, to destroy our democracy. But that is exactly what is happening.
Why would McConnell and the Republican senators force the trial to last well beyond midnight until 3:00 and 4:00 in the morning? Why would this Senate majority want to keep all witnesses and all documents out of a trial that would no longer be a trial but a presentation? Why would these Republicans over the Democratic Senate minority’s majority arguments keep the press away from the senators and limit the people’s access to the trial?
History will write the answer: A coverup.
Secretary Hillary Clinton had strong words against McConnell’s proposed rules. She was extremely close to the last impeachment trial, given that President Bill Clinton is her husband. She, too, called McConnell’s rules a “cover-up (sic):”
‘The rules Sen. McConnell has proposed for the president’s impeachment trial are the equivalent of a head juror colluding with the defendant to cover up a crime. Call your senators and urge them to push for witnesses and evidence, not a cover-up:’
Twitter world caught fire. Check out what Americans had to say about McConnell trying to rig the trial for Trump:
