'A Fact-Free Sham Trial Perpetrated in the Dead of Night': McConnell's Trump Cover-Up in Senate Begins

"If the president is so confident in his case, if Leader McConnell is so confident the president did nothing wrong, why don't they want the case to be presented in broad daylight?"

As the U.S. Senate on Tuesday began debating the rules that will dictate the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump going forward, progressive groups continued their denunciation of the proposal put forth by Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who they charge has set the stage for a legal process that will "amount to nothing more than a fact-free sham trial perpetrated in the dead of night."

 

That specific characterization was from Karen Hobert Flynn, president of Common Cause, who echoed both Democratic members of Congress and other outside voices who have made clear their belief that McConnell and his fellow Republicans are not interested in offering the American people a transparent look at the facts or upholding their constitutional oath to act as unbiased jurors, but are instead operating to cover for the president.

 

"Any Senator voting for this proposal is voting to bring shame upon themselves and upon the United States Senate," said Hobert Flynn. "The trial proposal would not necessarily allow witnesses, hear new evidence, or even admit existing evidence from the House unless a majority of Senators agree to it."

 

Watch Thursday's floor debate over the trial rules:

Too funny. A cover up because the house abandoned their court case to subpoena executive privilege evidence and now demands the senate do their job for them.....

 

No, dummy. Your house failed.
