Rumor Has It Senator McConnell Is About To Do Something That Will Make Sure Democrats Don’t Have A Merry Christmas
Now that House Democrats have voted on impeachment and things now head to the Senate it appears that Senator Mitch McConnell is going to make sure that the Democrats do not have a Merry Christmas.
Senator Mitch McConnell was very clear that there will be a trial in the Senate, so for those claiming that there will be a summary dismissal, they would be incorrect. However, the Democrats did try to whip people into a frenzy claiming that McConnell was planning to do that on Tuesday.
It does appear that McConnell is in no mood to let this thing drag out, earlier this week he said, “It is not the Senate’s job to leap into the breach and search desperately for ways to get to ‘guilty,” in a reply to Schumer.
“We don’t create impeachments,” he said in remarks prepared for delivery on the Senate floor. “We judge them.”
“The House chose this road. It is their duty to investigate. It is their duty to meet the very high bar for undoing a national election,” McConnell said.
This leads us to a rumor that I would say is probably true.
Mark Halperin who until he got himself in trouble with the #Metoo movement was a really big deal in the political media. During his appearance on the Michael Smerconish radio program he claims that sources close to Mitch McConnell told him that the Senator from Kentucky is going to hold the trial in December.
Does that mean it will finish by December? Who knows.
It would be astonishing if McConnell does go through with this. That would mean that during Christmas and New Years the trial would take place, meaning 70% of the country could care less. The only people that would be watching the impeachment trial would be hardcore political people. Another reason it would be a great move is that the trial would be over before the Democrats could break out their outrage twitter trending machine.
If McConnell can do this and can guarantee the votes will be in the majority to acquit the President then he should do it.
I just can’t see rhinos like Romney spending Christmas in Washington, but who knows.
