McConnell Looks To Hold Senate Trial Without Articles Of Impeachment: Report

mcconnell-to-play-unfair-game

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has decided to withhold articles of impeachment from the Senate until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) promises to hold a fair and thorough trial.

But Pelosi’s plan may not work if McConnell decides to play dirty. According to a new report by Politico, McConnell can likely conduct a Senate trial without articles of impeachment.

According to Politico:

ELI HONIG, a former federal prosecutor and CNN analyst, described it this way when Jake appeared with him on SiriusXM the other day: The Constitution stipulates other instances when things must be “transmitted” to the Senate — such as the ratified results of the electoral college vote. It never says anything like that when it comes to impeachment. So, McConnell can hold a trial without the articles. The majority leader has been mum about his intentions thus far, but has said that impeachment will lead to acquittal — something nearly all Capitol watchers believe.
