A significant revelation apparently was made by one majority party player in the Senate today.
As Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas told Monday he expects the opening arguments for President Trump‘s impeachment trial to start next Tuesday, January 21st.
He declared that exact day is “what it’s feeling like.” As well as, “We’d actually be glued to our chair starting Tuesday, I think.”
Pelosi stated on Sunday, “We have done our job.” Plus added, “We hope the Senate would do that as well.”
As for why she would wait on sending impeachment articles, “We wanted the public to see the need for witnesses, witness with firsthand knowledge of what happened, documentation, which the president has prevented from coming to the Congress as we reviewed this.”
Then regarding rival Republican President Donald Trump, “Everything he says is a projection. When he calls somebody crazy he knows that he is. Everything that he says you can just translate it back to who he is.”
“It’s about a fair trial. They take an oath to have a fair trial and we think that would be with witnesses and documentation,” Pelosi proclaimed. She advised, “Now, the ball is in their court to either do that or pay the price.”
Though Trump repeated last week, “I did nothing wrong.” Adding that, “They don’t even know what the hell is going on. In fact, it’s so weak. She doesn’t want to put in the articles. It’s so weak. They’re so pathetic.”
He also mocked Pelosi saying she’s “not operating with a full deck.”
Leader McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) have been at odds over the framework of an impeachment trial. In particular, about having potential witnesses called to testify. Among them are both current and former members of President Trump’s administration.
As for those highly anticipated House impeachment articles the grande dame of Democrats dished to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” yesterday, “What I did say is I would be consulting with my members this week on Tuesday morning at our regular caucus meeting. That we would vote to send them over and will determine in our meeting when we send them over.”
