Congresswoman Maxine Waters doubled-down on her demands for President Trump’s removal from office this week; saying her party “will not stop” impeachment inquiries against the Commander-in-Chief.
“The subpoenas that I have issued are now going to be heard at the Supreme Court. We will not stop. Whether or not that leads to another impeachment activity, I don’t know. We must continue with the work that our constituents have elected us to come to Congress to do,” said Waters.

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.
