Democrat Impeachment Managers Not Happy With McConnell’s Trial Rules, Respond With Scathing Letter

Published

on

The Democrat House managers that are prosecuting President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial are none too happy with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s rules for the trial and responded with a rather curt letter expressing their feelings about the whole thing.

According to the managers, McConnell’s rules are rigged in favor of Trump.

The resolution showed a condensed, two-day calendar for each side to give opening statements, at 12 hours per day. After the four days of opening arguments, senators would be allowed up to 16 hours for written questions to the prosecution and defense, followed by four hours of debate. Only then would there be votes on calling other witnesses—something that, if approved, would likely happen next week. At the end of the deliberations, the Senate would then vote on each impeachment article.

“For weeks, Mitch McConnell has asserted that he planned to follow the ‘Clinton precedent’ for structuring President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial. It is now clear why he hid his proposed resolution all this time and released it the night before the trial is set to begin,” the managers wrote in a statement Tuesday morning. “His resolution deviates sharply from the Clinton precedent—and common sense—in an effort to prevent the full truth of the President’s misconduct from coming to light.”

The Democratic “managers” include House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif; House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y.; and Reps. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y; Val Demings, D-Fla.; Jason Crow, D-Colo.; Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif.; and Sylvia Garcia, D-Texas.

The managers argued that during the 1999 impeachment, Clinton provided “more than 90,000 pages” of documents before the trial took place, “all of the witnesses had testified before the Senate trial began,” and the only issue was “whether they would be re-called to testify once more.”

“Here, McConnell is trying to prevent the witness from ever testifying, and the public from ever finding out what they have to say,” they wrote. “If those efforts are successful, this will be the first impeachment trial in American history in which the Senate did not allow the House to present its case with witnesses and documents. The McConnell Resolution goes so far as to suggest it may not even allow the evidence gathered by the House to be admitted.”

The letter went on to say, “That is not a fair trial. In fact, it is no trial at all.”

McConnell is to formally introduce the proposal he’s developed for the rules to govern the trial on Tuesday. He has claimed repeatedly these rules will mirror those used when President Bill Clinton was impeached back in 1999.

It’s ironic the left is crying for a fair trial against Trump when in reality they didn’t give the president much of a fair shake during the initial investigation and have really made a stretch in attempting to impeach him on the two articles they passed.

Huh?

Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have given their lives in the military so that we can be free. It certainly is not a day for politics. But “crooked” Hillary Clinton just couldn’t help herself. From Daily Wire: On Monday morning, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton decided to celebrate Memorial Day, which honors the veterans who have fought for America, with a tweet that didn’t acknowledge their sacrifice but instead trumpeted her approval of New York governor Andrew Cuomo for his “responsible decisions to keep people safe.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/1264912356834004992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1264912356834004992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fhillary-celebrates-memorial-day-by-lauding-cuomos-responsible-decisions-ignores-military Here’s President Trump’s address from Arlington National Cemetery… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1264964171457757184?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1264964171457757184&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-praises-veterans-projects-optimism-in-memorial-day-public-address From AP News: NEW YORK (AP) — More than 4,500 recovering coronavirus patients were sent to New York’s already vulnerable nursing homes under a controversial state directive that was ultimately scrapped amid criticisms it was accelerating the nation’s deadliest outbreaks, according to a count by The Associated Press. AP compiled its own tally to find out how many COVID-19 patients were discharged from hospitals to nursing homes under the March 25 directive after New York’s Health Department declined to release its internal survey conducted two weeks ago. It says it is still verifying data that was incomplete. CONTINUED: Whatever the full number, nursing home administrators, residents’ advocates and relatives say it has added up to a big and indefensible problem for facilities that even Gov. Andrew Cuomo — the main proponent of the policy — called “the optimum feeding ground for this virus.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNflR2Ia7Hc WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=189&v=APHIYCsHqV0&feature=emb_logo https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1251181566740619265?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1251181566740619265&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F04%2Fnothing-sitting-home-watching-tv-governor-cuomo-attacks-president-trump-rips-cdcs-bogus-predictions-video%2F

Dem Governor’s Husband Demanded Special Treatment After Whitmer Told People to Stay Away From Lake

Facepalm!

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) seems to be making headlines for all the wrong reasons, as of late. Therefore, it only makes sense that Joe Biden’s team is considering her for VP. Check out what Whitmer’s husband was recently caught doing, via Detroit News: The owner of a Northern Michigan dock company says Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s husband wanted his boat placed in the water before the Memorial Day weekend as Whitmer urged residents not to rush to the region. No longer visible to the public, Facebook posts from NorthShore Dock LLC and its owner, Tad Dowker, focused on what Dowker said was a request last week by Whitmer’s husband, Marc Mallory. The posts have drawn the attention of Republican state lawmakers, who said the Democratic governor’s family may not be following her guidance for the rest of the state. LOOK: https://twitter.com/RyanMaue/status/1265082748886228994?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1265082748886228994&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwhitmers-husband-asked-for-special-treatment-in-getting-boat-on-water-after-she-urged-people-to-not-go-to-area-report-says More from TDW: NorthShore Dock LLC later wrote a post about the incident, saying: “We simply let him know— Sorry, we have a lot going on with very little time to get it done. We will get you in line to install as soon as we can, ALL our customers are valued and we cannot place you in front of others who scheduled earlier.” […] Whitmer also faced intense backlash after her administration awarded taxpayer-funded coronavirus stimulus funds to Democrat groups, a move that she later canceled. Later, when pressed about the issue at a press conference, Whitmer had to read from notes as she refused to identify who made the decision to award the contracts to those groups.
