“This is a political exercise. All I’m asking of Schumer is that we treat Trump the same way we treated Clinton.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called out the Democrats’ weak excuse to withhold the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Fox & Friends this morning.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi claims she’s withholding the articles because it doesn’t look like the Senate will have a fair trial.
McConnell pointed out the obvious:
“Do you think Chuck Schumer is impartial? Do you think Elizabeth Warren is impartial? Bernie Sanders is impartial?” the Kentucky senator said Monday on Fox News about Democrats calling for an impartial Senate trial. “So let’s quit the charade. This is a political exercise. All I’m asking of Schumer is that we treat Trump the same way we treated Clinton.”
“So if she wants to hold all of the papers, go right ahead,” he said. “I can’t imagine what purpose is served by her holding on to the papers, so sooner or later, I’m assuming she’s going to send them over.”
He also said that “[Pelosi] apparently believes that she can tell us how to run the trial.”
Schumer has stressed that he will act as an impartial juror if the Senate holds a trial.
However, Schumer told CNN, “it seems quite likely” Trump “knows he’s guilty” because he has not spoken before Congress.
Pelosi made it known she “doesn’t care what the Republicans say” when it comes to the trial.DONATE
