Senators Sanders, Warren, Klobuchar, Barret, should NOT be allowed to vote on anything. The person on Trial is a "political rival", whose job they're trying to take, for God's sake!
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) told Axios Saturday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is expected to present a resolution that will allow President Trump's legal counsel to motion to immediately dismiss the impeachment charges during the Senate impeachment trial that starts, in earnest, Tuesday.
"My understanding is that the resolution will give the president's team the option to either move to judgment, or to move to dismiss, at a meaningful time," the junior senator continued.
In a 111-page trial brief, the seven Democratic impeachment managers say the president’s pattern of misconduct made him a “threat to the nation and the rule of law.”
An initial six-page response from Trump’s own lawyers takes aim at the House Democrats who investigated Trump, calling the impeachment probe a “brazen and unlawful” attempt to overturn the 2016 election.
In the conversation, Justice Ginsburg also implied that senators who display bias should be disqualified from acting as jurors in the trial.
When asked about senators making up their minds before the trial, the Supreme Court Justice said: "Well if a judge did that, a judge would be disqualified from sitting on the case."
