BREAKING: McConnell ‘Shoots Down’ Schumer’s Demands on Senate Impeachment Rules

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.17.19

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell rejected an initial offer from Sen. Chuck Schumer Tuesday regarding his requests for a potential impeachment trial in the Senate; calling his proposal a “fishing expedition.”

“The Senate Democratic leader would apparently like our chamber to do House Democrats’ homework for them. He wants to volunteer the Senate’s time and energy on a fishing expedition,” McConnell said.

“McConnell’s comments are the first time he’s responded to Schumer’s offer, sent on Sunday night, which outlined Democrats’ opening proposal on how to handle the Senate’s looming impeachment trial,” reports The Hill.

 

“The preferable path would have been an in-person conversation, which none the less, I still hope to pursue,” McConnell added.

“The Democratic leader wants to write a completely new set of rules for President Trump,” said the Senate Leader. “The same process that Senator Schumer though was good enough for President Clinton he doesn’t want to afford President Trump, go figure.”

CRYIN' FOUL: Schumer Warns Senate Impeachment Trial Could be ‘Very Partisan, Very Unfair’ for Democrats

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.16.19

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is already complaining about a potential impeachment trial in the US Senate; saying the process will likely be “very partisan” and “very unfair” for Democratic lawmakers.

“As you know, the House is expected to vote on the Articles of Impeachment this week. Assuming the Article are adopted, the Senate will serve as a court of impeachment. Conducting an impeachment trial in the Senate is an incredibly solemn responsibility,” said Schumer.

“Senate Democrats believe strongly that the trial must be fair, and it’s very important that the American people judge it to be fair,” added Schumer, complaining Senator Mitch McConnell’s handling of the process has been “very partisan, very slanted, and very unfair.”

SCHUMER SLAMMED: White House Calls Schumer’s Demand for ‘Impeachment Fairness’ a ‘Laughable Quote’

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.16.19

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was widely panned Monday for his demands for “impeachment fairness” should a trial be held in the US Senate.

“’Let us hope that fairness will prevail’ a laughable quote from @SenSchumer this AM….after the dems release an ‘impeachment report’ in the middle of the night. Thankfully the people of this country continue to see the partisan sham that this is,” posted White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham on social media.

 

“He should have talked to Schiff, Nadler, and Pelosi. They dropped their demands for this testimony when it became apparent that witnesses were going to seek court guidance on competing demands. Schiff dropped the ball,” added Sen. John Cornyn.
