Under McConnell's rules, Trump's impeachment trial could last well past midnight or end immediately

Under McConnell's rules, Trump's impeachment trial could last well past midnight or end immediatelyThe Senate will vote Tuesday on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-K.Y.) proposed rules for President Trump's impeachment trial. If they approve the rules, the senators will be voting for some very late nights at the office.McConnell's rules allow 24 hours for opening arguments over two sessions. If Trump's team and the House Democratic impeachment managers use all their time, it "could push testimony past midnight," The Washington Post reports. That would be a long time for senators to sit quietly without checking their phones, assuming they show up for the trial, but arguably worse for Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.> Roberts should insist that he will not preside for 12 hours. He still has to be alert during the morning. This is coverup on steroids. We should all protest. t.co/8khPub1vRP> > — Jill Wine-Banks (@JillWineBanks) January 21, 2020After the opening arguments, senators would have 16 hours to question Trump's team and the House managers, then four hours to debate whether to allow witnesses and new evidence — and then, whether to allow the House's impeachment documents to be admissible as evidence. That's "a key difference from the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton," the Post notes. "Though the material will be printed and made available to senators, it won’t be automatically admissible unless a majority of senators approve it."All this may be a moot point, though, because McConnell's rules also allow Trump's team to move to dismiss the charges at any time after the rules are adopted, so 51 senators could end the trial right away. Fox News congressional reporter Chad Pergram isn't impressed.> McConnell’s resolution stipulates that key facts be delivered in the wee hours of the night simply because he doesn’t want the American people to hear them. Any senator that votes for the McConnell resolution will be voting to hide information & evidence from the American people> > — Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) January 20, 2020University of Texas constitutional law professor Steve Vladeck suggests McConnell might not have had impartial justice in mind.> As @nycsouthpaw points out, inverting the process like this will create some real awkwardness—and seems designed, quite clearly, to make it much easier for Senators to argue against reopening the process to accommodate any new witnesses/testimony after the arguments are complete. t.co/c0pTIRa18k> > — Steve Vladeck (@steve_vladeck) January 20, 2020"All 53 Republican senators are expected to support the rules as written by McConnell," the Post reports.More stories from theweek.com Report: Several Senate Democrats are talking about trading the testimony of Hunter Biden for John Bolton White House counsel falsely claims Adam Schiff blocked Republicans from attending classified impeachment meetings More U.S. service members receiving treatment following Iranian missile attack

Trump rages about Electoral College reform and lowering voter age to 16 in midnight Twitter tirade

Trump rages about Electoral College reform and lowering voter age to 16 in midnight Twitter tiradeDonald Trump has used his latest overnight Twitter tirade to rail against proposals among some Democrats to abolish the Electoral College system and lower the voting age to 16. “Campaigning for the Popular Vote is much easier & different than campaigning for the Electoral College,” Mr Trump tweeted on Tuesday evening. The president’s outburst came after Elizabeth Warren, a leading Democratic contender for 2020, called for a popular vote to replace the complex Electoral College system, in which a president is selected by “electors” that people in each state vote for.
