    The Senate sent a strong signal Tuesday that there are not nearly enough votes to convict President Trump in an impeachment trial when only five GOP senators rejected an effort by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to declare the looming trial unconstitutional. The Senate voted 55-45 to set aside Paul's motion, with all but five GOP senators siding with Paul. GOP Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah), Ben Sasse (Neb.), Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Pat Toomey (Pa.) voted with Democrats to table Paul's point of order. The vote is the clearest sign yet that Trump is heading toward a second...

    <p>Most of the time, Americans pay scant attention to the rules that the House and Senate choose to govern themselves. We laugh when the House decides to go for gender-neutral language, but none of us thinks that makes any real difference. However, in the Senate, "China" Mitch McConnell has paved the way for a rule change that will allow the Democrats to alter forever America's longstanding structure and enable them to become a permanent governing class.</p>

    Mitch McConnell, the U.S. Senate Republican leader, said on Monday he would agree to a power-sharing agreement with Democrats, dropping demands that had held up the basic organization and daily work of the 50-50 chamber for days. Democrat Chuck Schumer, now the majority leader thanks to Vice President Kamala Harris’ tie-breaking vote, and McConnell had been at odds over the Republican’s request that Democrats promise to protect the filibuster, which requires a 60-vote supermajority to advance most legislation. Schumer has refused to guarantee the filibuster would stay. But in a statement, McConnell cited comments from moderate Democratic Senators Joe Manchin...

    While speaking with the Riders Alliance on Monday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) discussed the timing of passing the next round of coronavirus relief, the American Relief Act, and said that “we’ll try to get that passed in the next month, month-and-a-half.” Schumer said, [relevant remarks begin around 20:00] “[I]n the new bill, which President Biden has put together with my help, there are lots of other — there’s more money for transit and other things. It’s called the American Relief Act, and we’ll try to get that passed in the next month, month-and-a-half.”

    Earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer committed a blunder when speaking on the U.S. Senate floor, misspeaking and called the allegation that former President Donald Trump led an insurrection against the U.S. government an “erection.” “Make no mistake, there will be a trial, and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection,” Schumer declared, before correcting himself. During the introduction of Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week,” through editing, the “erection” portion of Schumer’s remarks was apparently edited out.
  • Speed should not be focus of Trump impeach trial (IMPEACHMENT HELD HOSTAGE - DAY 37)

    01/23/2021 1:54:20 AM PST · by Libloather · 17 replies
    Can former President Donald Trump get a fair trial? It’s a question worth asking, as his impending impeachment before the Senate appears to favor speed over due process. According to Politico, multiple sources on Capitol Hill said that lawmakers have privately discussed the possibility of a three-day impeachment trial for Trump - the fastest of any such procedure for a president. (Bill Clinton’s impeachment lasted nearly two months, and Trump’s first trial clocked in at about three weeks.) Talks about the trial’s parameters between Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are still ongoing, so nothing has been...

The swamp knows that Trump won the 2020 election and still has a solid base of tens of millions of supporters so they are working to bar Trump from ever running for office.

Speaker Pelosi will send the articles of impeachment to the senate on Monday. Pelosi and the Democrats have accused Trump of...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is sending the article of impeachment against former President Trump to the Senate on Monday, paving the way for a trial. The House of Representatives this month voted to impeach Trump for the second time in his presidency for "incitement of insurrection" after a mob of his supporters besieged the Capitol on Jan. 6 in a failed attempt to stop the certification of then-President-elect Joe Biden's electoral college win. "I've spoken to Speaker Pelosi who informed me that the article will be delivered to the Senate on...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is reviewing a request from Republicans to put off the start of former President Donald Trump's impeachment trial until mid-February, a Schumer spokesman said Thursday. **SNIP** Trump is the only U.S. president to have been impeached twice, and his trial in the Senate will be the only one ever to have taken place after a president has left office. A source familiar with the planning told Reuters the House could transmit the article of impeachment as early as Friday, and No. 2 Senate Democrat Dick Durbin said he expected it "in...

    Thousands of National Guardsmen were forced to vacate congressional grounds on Thursday and are now taking their rest breaks outside and in nearby parking garages, after two weeks of sleepless nights protecting the nation’s capital in the wake of the violent assault on Jan. 6. One unit, which had been resting in the Dirksen Senate Office building, was abruptly told to vacate the facility on Thursday, according to one Guardsman. The group was forced to rest in a nearby parking garage without internet reception, with just one electrical outlet, and one bathroom with two stalls for 5,000 troops, the person...

    In one of his final acts as majority leader, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is pressuring Democrats to keep the filibuster — the procedural tool that liberals and progressives are eager to to do away with so President-elect Joe Biden’s legislative priorities can be approved more easily over GOP opposition. McConnell has told Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer that retaining the legislative filibuster is important and should be part of their negotiations for a power-sharing agreement in the narrowly divided Senate. Schumer and McConnell met Tuesday to begin hammering out the details of organizing the chamber, which will be split...

    Progressives' malicious power grab escalates to the wickedest heights. A contingent of protestors invaded, vandalized and occupied portions of the U.S. Capitol on January 6th -- as the constitutional process of electoral college certification of the 2020 presidential election results was getting underway. The mob violence was an outright assault on the greatest constitutional republic in the world. But instead of making an effort to unite the country against such anarchy, the Left’s leaders and their friends in the establishment media are applying their usual double standard of “for thee, but not for me.” Not surprisingly, they are blaming President...

    During an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) urged his GOP colleagues to join him and the Democrats in voting to impeach President Donald Trump even though his term ends on January 20. The House impeached Trump for “incitement of insurrection” after a group of the president’s supporters breached the U.S. Capitol earlier this month. Schumer argued that Trump inciting the group is “the most despicable action any president has ever taken” and said convicting him means he can never run for office again.
