'This Strange Gambit Achieved Absolutely Nothing' - McConnell Excoriates Pelosi Days Before Impeachment Trial Begins
The Senate “was never going to allow the Speaker to dictate” how to handle a trial. “The Senate will not be sucked into this precedent-breaking path,” McConnell said touting the separation of powers between the two chambers of congress.
The Constitution is clear about the Senate’s authority to try impeachment.
Article I, Section 3 says: “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments.”
