    Trump Trial 'First' Priority in January, Says Senate Leader IlWna

    From AFP

    AFP Staff wrote:The trial of Donald Trump will be the Senate's first priority in January if the U.S. president is impeached as expected next week, the top Republican in Congress said Wednesday.

    The House Judiciary Committee was set to meet beginning Wednesday evening to debate two articles of impeachment that accuse Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress related to his dealings with Ukraine.

    The panel will likely vote to approve the charges on Thursday.

    That would send the articles to a full vote by the Democratic-led House of Representatives as early as next week on whether to impeach a U.S. president for only the third time in U.S. history.

    The case would then shift to the Senate in the new year for a trial to decide whether Trump is removed from office.

    "A Senate trial will have to be our first item of business in January," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told colleagues on the floor.

    Conviction appears unlikely given that Republicans hold a majority in the chamber and the threshold for conviction is high, at two-thirds of members.

    McConnell savaged Democrats who he says have been desperate to impeach Trump from the day he took the oath of office, and who have rushed the process "based on the least thorough and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history."

    "If the House continues down this destructive road and sends us articles of impeachment, the Senate will take them up in the new year and proceed to a fair trial."

    In multiple public House hearings, Democrats have argued that Trump abused the powers of his office to solicit foreign interference in 2020's U.S. elections, and that he would remain a "clear and present danger" to national security if not removed from office.

    Trump has reportedly told advisers he wants to make a dramatic show of the trial, and that calling witnesses to appear in person in the Senate could help him damage Democrats ahead of the November election.

    McConnell told reporters Tuesday that no decision on whether to hear from witnesses live, rather than in taped depositions, would be made until after the trial's opening arguments.

    Welp, it looks like "The Turtle" is doing what I thought he'd do: parrot Trump's words and then hide back in his shell. Then on top of that, he announces that this trial will be priority No. 1 when Congress reconvenes in January. Why bother?

    I will say this again, and likely I will repeat it in future posts until it happens and I say, "I told you so." Here's what's gonna happen: Donald Trump will be impeached in the House, and acquitted in the Senate, therefore will not be removed from office UNLESS he's voted out in November 2020. Ladies and Gentlemen, Democrats and Republicans, this is not a prediction... THIS IS A SPOILER!
