Watch: McConnell Sticks It To Democrats, Moves Forward On Impeachment Without Schumer

(Tea Party PAC) – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has no patience for the inconsistent, lying Democrats and will proceed with the Senate impeachment trial rules without the input of his colleagues.

McConnell’s Senate counterpart, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) previously demanded that four White House witnesses testify in the Senate impeachment trial as well as control over how much time would be allotted for each witness.

Well, McConnell brushed off these demands and is now moving forward to dismiss the articles of impeachment in short order.

Ha!

Politico reported:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is on the verge of having sufficient backing in his 53-member caucus to pass a blueprint for the trial that leaves the question of seeking witnesses and documents until after opening arguments are made, according to multiple senators.

That framework would mirror the contours of President Bill Clinton’s trial and ignore Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s demands for witnesses and new evidence.

No final decision has been made, but in a brief interview, McConnell said he would address the possibility of spurning Democrats on Tuesday afternoon.

GOP leaders are expected to finalize their vote counts at their first party lunch since the holiday break and Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) said on Tuesday that McConnell’s leadership team is “trying to get consensus among Republicans about how to go forward.”

“We are taking the temperature of our members to see where they are but I’m hoping our members will be prepared to move forward along the lines of the Clinton rules which is what we think makes sense,” Thune said. “What we’re aspiring to do is to get this process moving forward and indicate to the Democrats that as soon as they send those articles over here, we’re ready to go.”

Over in the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is currently sitting on the two articles of impeachment that were approved before the holiday recess, holding them captive until the Republicans in the Senate acquiesce to her demands.

On Friday, Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) announced on Friday that if the Democrats fail to deliver the articles to the Senate as required by the Constitution, he will introduce a measure to dismiss them completely on Monday, January 6th.

Well, he kept his promise, introducing the resolution to allow the dismissal of what he called the “bogus impeachment” against President Trump.

This resolution now gives Speaker Pelosi 25 days from the day the articles were adopted to turn them over to the Senate or face dismissal of the charges.

This gives her until Sunday, January 12th to turn them over. What will she do?

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, McConnell told reporters during a press conference that the Republicans have the vote they need to affirm his rules for the impeachment trial.

  1. Senators Sanders, Warren, Klobachur, Harris and Booker should be disqualified from voting whether to remove President Trump. Their statuses as candidates for their party’s nomination to oppose him in the election is not only a conflict of interest, but an abuse of power.

  2. IMPEACH Pelosi, Shift and all the rest of the lying, unbelievable DEMORATS! Hey Nancy, continue to hold onto your party’s impeachment inquiry vote and just maybe The Senate will vote to dismiss all charges against Our POTUS. Waiting for some honest work and for all to get busy doing the people’s business. Guess HELL will freeze over, hopefully with all you dishonest politicians caught underneath!

  3. Best employment rate in my lifetime. Best economic figures. We ALWAYS know where he stands. He runs the Country like a business, which it is. He looks out for the public and encourages growth. Our Country is put first in his thoughts and actions. He happens to have run on the Republican ticket. I would have and will again vote for him no matter what Party platform he chooses.

  4. Its past time for this bogus charade to cease.
    All brought on by hate of President Trump and the Democrats loss. All the so called evidence for most part have been proven a lie. So get on with the business of the country and shut down these Democrats clowns and bafoons.

    • @Angela just go sit in a corner and play with yourself oh by the way Trump is your President and will be re-elected 2020

    • Your the brainwashed fool. The party of murder will always be wrong! The party that has bloodthirsty muslims in their party will always be wrong. The party of soros will always be wrong. The left of this country are always wrong. President Trump has made America Great Again, he needs to flush the toilet on the left. Including you turd!

    • Do your research and stop hating. Then choose truth or quit talking. You sound foolish. And I am not even an American.

    • I’m not sure what to think of an individual who would rather see her President fail than see her Country succeed.
      I’m sure that you calling me, and other Trump supporters, stupid will help us all to understand the profoundness of your psychosis regarding Trump.
      Just remember, you’re painting yourself as one of the “…all enemies, foreign or domestic” Veterans are bound, by Oath, to defend our Country and Constitution against, and is not in anyone’s best interest.

    • Talk about being brain washed. E-mails can be deleted. It’s hard to make decisions when all you hear is mostly a one-sided version.

  6. The House passed two “feckless” articles of impeachment. No treason,bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors. How can the Senate have a trial without crimes?

  7. Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Jerry Nadler and Schiff should be impeached . Also the squad should be fired for being horrible congresswomen.

  8. Why wait for the pelosi at all? The trial can consist of just tabling the entire thing and taking a guilty innocent vote without any other procedure. Just vote and get the sham over with. They’re going to go through this all over again (so they say) until they’re successful so why waste time on it? The Senate gives it a smidgen of credibility by giving it any time whatsoever.

  9. Here’s hoping for a prompt acquittal in the impeachment trial in the Senate! Even better would be an immediate dismissal of any and all charges against the President! It can happen (and probably will)!

  10. It’s so apparent they have no reason to impeach President Trump, and now there is plenty to show how treasonous the do nothing Dems have been, they should be Prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and that they should apologize to the American people for the way they treated us the president in this country.

    • AFTER ALL THE GAMES AND ILLEGALITIES
      SCHIFF & THE DEMIs , the skunks pulled in the
      HOUSE, they want to dictate to the SENATE!!!!
      Pelosi & Schumer, Blow it out your rear portals!!!!

  11. The impeachment is exactly what the majority of the people say it is “a witch hunt” by a bunch of anti Americans that don’t belong anywhere in politics or in any capacity of lawmaking. Since they took control of the house (which I believe by having ty he dead and illegal citizens vote) they have accomplished one thing-squandered the American taxpayers money on nothing. Now the Senate needs to stand up to the Democrats and not work with them (that’s been proven over and over you can’t work with corrupt politicians)), and clear trump of this sham and put the clowns back on their trycyvles so the can scurry outta of Washington D.C.

  12. Don’t believe Pelosi should have the right to withhold anything. She is a traitor and should be tried as such and promptly hung from the nearest tree.

  13. Ernie needs to open his eyes so he can see the truth, Democrats been trying to get rid of PRESIDENT TRUMP FROM DAY 1. TRUMP IS DOING A FANTASTIC JOB.
    TRUMP 2020

  14. Dismiss these FAKE articles NOW! This has been a huge waste of my tax dollars & I’m fed up with all the democratic shenanigans!!

  15. Nancy and Chuck always try to overplay their positions. She in not Queen and he is not the Deputy King. They are obligated to follow long established rules and traditions but hate Trump so munch they are trying to talk their way into being in charge. Their crying over the Hillary loss has warped their modest sized brains. Maybe they should ask about getting the Honeymoon suite at the Trump Hotel in DC to work on their sanity

  16. Stick it to the Democrats just like they stuck it Republicans in the House…Additionally, after you stick it to them, twist it and then break it off inside them! Like a lot of other Americans I am more than fed up with Schiff Pelosi and the rest of the liars. Subpoena both Bidens’ and anyone else who is involved with this massive waste of American taxpayers money and time. End this fasad of an impeachment once and for all…..

    • Nancy Pelosi leader of the truly clueless and irrational indeed. Think about it but not to long; the partisan impeachment vote will be voted to ratify immediate acquittal of impeachment articles due to non-submittal of articles of impeachment;

      now that is an impeachment failure for non-delivery of impeachment articles; Nancy Pelosi will be laughed and riddiculed for the remainder of her ineffective term and a gross embarassment to herself, her speaker of the house elected position and a massive disappointment and embarrasment to the entire democratic party for not even doing any kind of potential damage control mitigation whatsoever.

    • You will vote them out only in your dreams. Who is going to win and beat Trump sleepy Joe the crook with dementia or crazy Bernie who wants to create a modern day Cuba

  17. thars great to hear now trump can get the government back doing what they need to do and now he needs to stop these dumbocrats from bashing the president
