Schumer & McConnell Team Up To Take Trump Out In Impeachment Trial
Every time I am reminded that the United States Congresses impeachment of President Trump is actually going to trial in the Senate while Trump is a private citizen and has not been in office for a month, I chuckle.
This is how out of touch Washington is with the American people. While the federal government turns Washington DC into a military zone, it really makes one wonder, what are they afraid of?
More importantly, it makes me wonder … what they hell are they planning that they think they are going to need to be protected by an army inside a bunker? Ohhhhhh …. I have one idea, and if has to do with the election.
Today, two of the biggest snakes in the swamp, Schumer and McConnell have announced that they have agreed upon a framework for the totally unconstitutional trial of a private citizen in the Senate.
The show trial will begin today, Tuesday, February 9th.
Here are the details via Fox News:
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on Monday that he, Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and former President Donald Trump’s counsel had reached an agreement on the structure for the upcoming impeachment trial.
That structure will include four hours divided evenly between the Impeachment Managers and Trump’s counsel to present arguments on Tuesday regarding the constitutionality of the trial, followed by a vote.
If the trial proceeds, there will be up to sixteen hours for the Impeachment Managers in the House to lay out their case starting on Wednesday, and 16 hours for Trump’s defense.
There will then be equal time provided for senator’s questions, closing arguments and Senate deliberations.
It will be up to the managers to request witnesses.
“For the information of the Senate, the Republican leader and I, in consultation with both the House managers and Former President Trump’s lawyers, have agreed to a bipartisan resolution to govern the structure and timing of the impending trial,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said from the Senate floor.
“All parties have agreed to a structure that will ensure a fair and honest Senate impeachment trial of the former president,” Schumer said.

“I’m pleased that Leader Schumer and I were able to reach an agreement on a fair process and estimated timeline for the upcoming Senate trial,” McConnell mumbled. “It will give senators as jurors ample time to receive the case and the arguments.”
Trump’s lead lawyers argued the Senate should immediately dismiss the articles of impeachment in a 75-page legal brief filed Monday morning.
Of course McConnell didn’t make this happen because he wants to see Trump dragged though the mud, he wants to go back to the limp wristed party that the GOP was prior to Trump. The party that was just there to pretend they were moving to stop the Democrat’s Marxist take over of the country.
The Gateway Pundit explained:
‘Trump’s impeachment lawyers David Schoen and Bruce Castor in a pretrial brief accused the House Democrats of suffering from “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” engaging in “political theater” and called the trial unconstitutional because Trump is no longer in office.
Update: Trump’s lawyers responded to Schumer and McConnell’s announcement they came to deal on impeachment:’
“President Trump and his counsel are pleased that there was bipartisan support on how to structure the impeachment trial,” Trump’s team said in a statement. “We appreciate that Senate Republican leadership stood strong for due process and secured a structure that is consistent with past precedent. This process will provide us with an opportunity to explain to Senators why it is absurd and unconstitutional to hold an impeachment trial against a private citizen.”
Fair? What would have been fair is if none of this ever happened. The idiots in Washington are so out of touch that the do not even understand that the majority of people have Trump’s back and this is only making the establishment LESS popular.
WE KNOW WHAT YOU DID WASHINGTON … AND WE WONT FORGET ANYTIME SOON
