Senate Majority Leader will go ahead with the sooner action against Senate Minority Leader McConnell’s hope to put things off for a few weeks…
Schumer apparently can actually hold up things for a while in the Senate anyways as a fairness to Trump’s legal team and as way to get more Biden people confirmed….
But this move ….
Does several things….
It puts Donald Trump’s name BACK into the headlines less than a week after Joe Biden has become President…
It could slow Biden’s confirmation’s to a crawl….
(Can Schumer do a duel thing like they did for the Clinton trial?)
It assures those Republican’s who want to support Trump more leverage to make sure he’s not convicted…
With that it leaves the possibility that Trump COULD run again and actually helps Trump politically….
Some Democrats will think I’m crazy but while this is gonna get pound of flesh for Democrats. from Trump..
In the end it might actually help the Republicans for 2022….
And it’s gonna slow Joe Biden down…..
Democrats DO tend to screw things up when they have control over everything….
The only hope on this is that the trial is over quickly …
Make no mistake?
Donald Trump WANTED to derail Joe Biden’s win and Presidency…
He’s guilty as hell….
The US Senate is NOT likely to convict him…
I believe …
Republicans are NOT gonna let Trump’s collateral damage hurt them after he’s gone….
The House will transmit its article of impeachment charging former President Donald J. Trump with “incitement of insurrection” to the Senate on Monday, triggering the start of a trial unlike any in American history, Senator Chuck Schumer of New York said on Friday.
Mr. Schumer, the majority leader, said the decision had been relayed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi but he declined to elaborate further on how the trial would run. Once the article arrives, Senate rules say the chamber must almost immediately be transformed into a court of impeachment and sit in judgment until a verdict is reached.
Mr. Schumer and Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, his Republican counterpart, have been negotiating for days over further parameters for the trial in hopes of settling on bipartisan rules. Democrats are intent on trying to set up a dual track whereby the Senate could still confirm President Biden’s cabinet nominees before the trial starts each day to try to minimize the impact of the proceeding on his first days in office.
Ms. Pelosi’s decision to move on Monday, a little less than two weeks after the House’s bipartisan impeachment vote, rebuffed a request Mr. McConnell made on Thursday to delay the trial to provide Mr. Trump’s newly appointed legal team time to prepare. He had asked that the heart of the trial not begin until mid-February.
However, senators could still come to their own agreement to build in extra time for pretrial written briefs to delay the start of oral arguments in the Senate. Democrats involved in the planning indicated they were not entirely opposed to giving Mr. Trump’s team some time, out of fairness, and could use the lag to confirm more Biden nominees….
