The Impeachment ‘Kill Switch’: McConnell Dismissal Rule Corners Democrats, Blocks Antics as Trial Commences

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is as of now including in the U.S. Senate impeachment trial rules a “kill switch” that effectively allows for the president’s legal team to seek an immediate verdict or dismissal of the case should Democrats engage in any shenanigans like they did in the House process.

The revelation comes after the House finally late last week formally sent the Articles of Impeachment it adopted before Christmas—after holding them for more than a month without transmission—to the U.S. Senate, thereby triggering the start of a Senate trial. The Senate will formally commence its trial procedures in votes this coming week, and while some Republicans want to outright dismiss the charges altogether from the outset, others believe a trial should take place.

In so finally transmitting the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also named impeachment case managers—the Democrats who will present and manage the House’s case to the Senate—last week. They include House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY). Both Schiff and Nadler were widely panned for the highly unfair process they ran in the House of Representatives, and many Senate Republicans do not trust them to refrain from playing games that seek to make the Senate trial unfair to the president as the highly partisan process in the House ended up.

Republicans on the House side, who were essentially powerless to stop the Democrats’ shenanigans since they are in the minority in the lower chamber, are warning Senate Republicans to be on the lookout for Schiff’s gamesmanship and that from his ilk.

“It’s incumbent upon the Senate to preserve the right of the President’s legal team to ask for a verdict or move to dismiss this sham impeachment anytime they see fit during the Senate trial,” a source close to House GOP leadership told Breitbart News. “Otherwise, Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans risk allowing Adam Schiff and his conspiracy caucus to hijack and take control of the trial.”

What does it all mean?

Democrats are surely going to want to include new “evidence”, ie, things that they are just making up, they’ll want silly witnesses, all the standard things, so, if they give this a whirl, the president’s team can demand a vote. And you know Democrats will attempt to pull shenanigans just like in the House

Vice President Mike Pence, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News late last week, made it clear that “when it comes to the Senate trial, it’ll be for the senators to decide [on witnesses and process], but I think the fact that you hear people talking about witnesses in the Senate just proves how weak the case underpinning the Articles of Impeachment really is.”

“The fact that we’ve heard they had an open-and-shut case, that despite the fact the American people can read the transcript, see the fact the president did nothing wrong, no quid pro quo, the military aid was released,” Pence added. “The American people have the facts. We heard that Congress did what the facts demanded, and now suddenly we hear Democrats saying they need more facts and they need more witnesses. My view on this is the American people see through all of this—the sham investigation followed by a partisan impeachment. They’re saying ‘enough is enough.’”

Mike Pence is one of the good guys in politics. He wouldn’t be defending Trump if he thought there was a problem. And, yes, if the case was so slam dunk, why do they need more witnesses and such? Democrats are saying that they have no case.

    After hearing the case against tRump, the American people favor impeachment 52% to 45%. Mitch shuts it all down at his own and the GOP’s political risk. McConnell won’t risk himself for tRump.

    Porter invokes Mike Pence as character witness for tRump: Mike Pence is one of the good guys in politics. He wouldn’t be defending Trump if he thought there was a problem.

    That’s pure bullshit. Pence has yet to criticize a single misstep by tRump – Pence is a tRump sycophant. Pence is not as incompetent as tRump but displays all the symptoms of deep-seated right-wing hatred and cruelty.

    One Term Josh (Hawley) is an embarrassment, even with Blunt as our other Senator.

    Hawley is just another Pence.
