REPORT: McConnell Considering ‘Kill Switch’ for Impeachment Trial if Democrats Delay Proceedings

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.20.20

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is reportedly considering a “kill switch” proposal that would allow lawmakers to fast-track the President’s impeachment trial should Democrats seek to indefinitely delay the process.

“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly is close to finalizing a rule that would allow President Trump’s team to move to dismiss the articles of impeachment in the Senate quickly after some evidence has been presented, as a sort of safety valve in case Democrats try to drag out the trial for weeks,” reports Fox News.

“McConnell, R-Ky., wouldn’t be obligated to publicize the final version of his resolution setting the parameters of the impeachment trial until Tuesday, but top Republicans have said they supported affording Trump the opportunity to cut the trial short,” adds Fox.
