McConnell Backs Measure To Change Senate Rules, Dismiss Impeachment Without Articles

The Hill

[Too short to excerpt]

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is backing a resolution to change the Senate’s rules to allow for lawmakers to dismiss articles of impeachment against President Trump before the House sends them over.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) announced on Thursday that McConnell has signed on as a co-sponsor to the resolution, which he introduced earlier this week.

Spokesmen for McConnell didn't immediately respond to a request for comment about his support.

Changing the rules would either require a two-thirds vote or for Republicans to deploy the "nuclear" option.

The resolution would give the House 25 days to send articles of impeachment over to the Senate. After that, a senator could offer a motion to dismiss "with prejudice for failure by the House of Representatives to prosecute such articles" with a simple majority vote, according to Hawley's proposal.

McConnell has repeatedly lashed out at Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for delaying sending over the two articles of impeachment.

"This is what they have done: They have initiated one of the most grave and most unsettling processes in our Constitution and then refused to allow a resolution," he said on Thursday.

‘The Speaker began something that she herself predicted would be 'so divisive to the country' ... and now she is unilaterally saying it cannot move forward towards a resolution," he added.

I hope they don’t do this. If this passes and then they do dismiss because Pelosi didn’t send the articles over, the Dems will be able to make the case to the public that the “corrupt” GOP Senate changed the rules in order to keep Trump from having to tell the “truth”. They will control the narrative.

Right now, Pelosi is slowly losing control of the issue. Let her hang with this. Don’t hand her an out right before she drowns.

Oh they know that well, but like Trump they clearly think that it's still better than having witnesses like Bolton getting up in front of the Congress for a tell-all about the President's "drug deal"ing.

Another moron jumps in with the same stupid "the House proved their case but we need more witnesses to prove their case" argument. Hilarious!

Thank you for the concession that the House proved their case already even though administration has obstructed at every turn.

I don't give a shidt what she does or not.

Most are awake now and see what tricks that the dems and Pelosi are pulling and I hope that the senate punts this stupid harassment stunt right out on it's face.

The dems will lie and say what they will and blame the republicans no matter what happens anyhow.

<censored> them.

You better hope some local PD don't use the shoddy methods to railroad you in the future. You can't use hearsay as a means to convict. None of those people had any knowledge of the call firsthand. Period.

After all these years, you still post some of the stupidest <censored> I have ever seen. How is it that you have not grown in the least after more than a decade of posting here?

I trust that you have good care takers. Otherwise, just damn.
