The Coming Senate Trial: A Worsening Crisis

A Senate trial is coming. The question is the nature of the trial. Senate Leader Mitch McConnell has not made this a secret. He is not a juror willing to listen to the evidence. He already made his mind. In most juries, the Senate is not, that be grounds for disqualification.

He is the foreman, and he intends to coordinate with the defense. You try this in any trial, and you may even face contempt of court. As I said above, the US Senate is not a regular court. However, this is deepening the legitimacy crisis for the senate and the presidency.
