McConnell says there will be a trial if [when] the House votes to impeach

No matter how corrupt the process or how inane the charges and the evidence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced on Wednesday to reporters that there will not be a quick dismissal of Trump impeachment articles. There will be a trial.

A simple majority could dismiss the case but he probably doesn’t have the votes thanks to people like Mitt Romney, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) told reporters on Wednesday that he did not expect there would be enough support to quickly dismiss any articles of impeachment and avoid a trial. 

“There’s some people talking about trying to stop the bill, dismiss charges basically as soon as they get over here. I think that’s not going to happen. That would require 51 votes,” he said.

“I don’t think there’s any question that we have to take up the matter. The rules of impeachment are very clear, we’ll have to have a trial. My own view is that we should give people the opportunity to put the case on,” McConnell told reporters, The Hill reported.

There is no time frame for it to end other than it has to end sometime.

On a positive note, if it goes to trial, Sen. Rand Paul insists on Eric Ciaramella, the alleged whistleblower, showing up to testify.

On a funny note, that goes along with this whole Soviet thing the Democrats have going, they are reportedly talking about having a secret vote for impeachment. They don’t want to lose any members during the election because of their vote. They think the voters are too stupid to figure out every last Democrat wants to overturn the election and throw Trump out of office.

Democrats not only did nothing this entire session, but they also won’t let the President do anything besides defend himself.

  1. I said McConnel is a wash. If he wanted, he would have convinced them. Democrats are seriously attacking Ernst, McConnel, Cornyn, Collins, McSally and others. They should all be premaried. The president cannot save all of them. We cannot afford to lose Senate seats. They can get other jobs if they cooperate with impeachment. McConnel should do a better job, maybe he doesn’t want. People want this impeachment ended. We won’t vote for any republican if they scrue the impeachment.

  2. YES!!! GOOO MCCONNELL!!! THE REAL TRIAL STARTS IN THE SENATE….SEND ALL THESE DEVILS TO GITMO; MAKE THEM PAY FOR ALL THEIR CRIMES; GITMO IS READY TO RECEIVE THEM AND AMERICA IS READY FOR JUSTICE. THEY DESERVE THE WORST PUNISHMENT EVER FOR THEY HAVE DONE SOOO MUCH DAMAGE TO AMERICA AND ITS CITIZENS. AMEN

  3. This is the most absurd thing iv’e ever heard , this is a complete joke there is NOTHING THERE to have a trial about !!!!!!!

    Americans are beyond outraged and will make republicans and democrats pay dearly for this , they will pay .

  4. “Simple majority” to dismiss it, and McConnell is too spineless to call for a dismissal. If President Trump ends up getting impeached I for one will be blaming the gop Senators more than the dems.

  5. (D)ims don’t really want to send AOI to the Senate.

    1. House impeachment Dims try to damage Trump as much as possible
    2. Pelosi/Schiff allow House Dims in Trump precincts to vote with Repubs (to save their seats)
    3. AOI do not get sent to Senate where Repubs would slaughter them, revealing Dim dirty impeachment tactics and party corruption (per Bidens, Kerrys and so many others) and Dim candidates can stay on campaign trail
    4. TRUMP LANDSLIDE
    5. Funeral PARTY for Dim party
