Senators can only drink water or milk during the impeachment trial

Senators can only drink water or milk during the impeachment trialThe just-starting Senate impeachment trial of President Trump has resurfaced reminders of what isn't allowed in the room where it happens: talking, electronics, questions from the press, among other things. And while it's true that coffee and other non-water drinks are always barred from the Senate floor, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) has just generously reminded us that another liquid will be available for slurping come trial time.> Sen. Rick Scott tells me the rules only allow senators to drink water and milk on the Senate floor during the impeachment trial> > — Matt Laslo (@MattLaslo) January 21, 2020Yes, because one senator desperately needed a dose of dairy back in 1966, milk is allowed on the floor along with water. No senators have broken out the dairy this impeachment around, but keep an eye on Vermont Sens. Bernie Sanders (I) and Patrick Leahy (D), who've been spotted sipping milk together on special occasions for decades. > I congratulate my friend @SenatorLeahy for casting his 16,000th vote in the U.S. Senate! Senator Leahy has worked tirelessly for the people of Vermont since 1974, bringing our state's values of justice and openness to Washington. I look forward to continuing our work together. pic.twitter.com/3aaIAZvG5X> > — Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) July 17, 2019More stories from theweek.com Chief Justice Roberts admonishes impeachment managers and Trump team, reminds them to 'remember where they are' Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow's odd impeachment rant about 'lawyer lawsuits' may stem from a misheard phrase Rep.
