Mitch McConnell effectively kills impeachment push with Senate schedule

Since the chaos in the nation’s capital on January 6, Democrats have strongly signaled that they’re ready to push articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump if he’s not removed from office via the 25th Amendment or from tendering his resignation.

According to The Blaze, while the mainstream media is hyping the strong possibility that another impeachment trial could be in play, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) just put the kibosh on their plan by announcing that the earliest that the Senate would take up the matter would be the day before the president leaves office.ย 

In a memo obtained by the Washington Post, the Senate “will not reconvene for substantive business until Jan. 19, which means the earliest possible date that impeachment trial proceedings can begin in the Senate is the day before President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated.”

The one exception to that rule is two earlier dates when the Senate will convene for two Pro-forma sessions. Though impeachment proceedings are not allowed on those days, the rule could be waived if all 100 sitting senators agree on the matter, which in a Republican-controlled Senate, is virtually not even a remote possibility.

Making matters even more interesting is the fact that if the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) does move forward with the impeachment attempt, the process will likely be handed off to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who is expected to claim the title of Senate Majority Leader given the outcome of the Georgia special runoff elections last week.

Not unexpectedly, House Democrats expressed their frustration with McConnell’s memo, arguing that the current Senate leader could easily make it happen if he really wanted to.

“If Mitch McConnell wants to move with expedition, he knows how to do it. And if he doesn’t, then he will bear the responsibility for whatever dangerous acts this president commits,” House Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said during an interview on MSNBC.

Adding to the potential confusion is that nobody is 100 percent sure who would preside over the impeachment. U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts would typically preside over an impeachment involving a president, but if the schedule goes as McConnell intends, Trump will likely be a private citizen right as the Senate begins a trial.

In other words, 2021 is already competing with 2020 to become yet the craziest year in American politics in the country’s history.

    1. And dear Nancy paid for the last one by using our Social Security funds. This โ€œcaringโ€ woman sits on 114 million but pays for hearings that most of America did not want out of our SS! And then trying to toss out our dully elected members in Congress because they did not follow her party line. She was trying to do what they accuse Trump , but is too filled with hate to see clearly.

        3. the demoncrats would pay with their money to stump Trump they are scared to death of him, because he has truth on his side, they have Clinton, Obama, and several super money anti Christ Devils that would pay

        1. Omg . You go girl you told it straight ! . Ever thought about politics??๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ. Just be patient the s๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ’ฉ about to hit the fan . Marshall is coming to town

  1. Lucifer is always at work. Opposition, Contention, power, greed, control, destruction.
    God Bless America, the American people and President Trump and his family.

    1. Agree there is no reason to use our SS funds or taxpayer payer money on plans of hatred. Leave him alone. Donald trump best president ever and I would vote for him again I did vote for him again and I hate it was stolen from him and his supporters. Disgusting. God has the final word. Biden is sick and will not last many months pelosi is up for re-election and folks we have to vote her out as rino house republicans wonโ€™t do it and schumer well the squad is coming for him. Hope they get him out.

    2. Amen. God Bless America, the American people, and President Trump and his family. He endured 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and four years of persecution, slander, and vicious hate from Democrats, the media, and the ‘entertainment’ industry. He has more integrity and than anyone in Congress. God Bless you, President Trump.

    1. I see, It’s OK with you for the Democrats to lie, steal and permit BLM and Antifa to destroy our country. And it’s OK with you for the Biden gang to use his office to make himself and his family rich. And it’s OK with you that Piss-Noisy, Shummer, and Shiffty to do what they have done every since Trump took office. And you think you are better off without Trump. Big surprise coming for you.

      The handle “bigAlturker” is just like the rest of your Demorats. The only thing big about you is your mouth because your brain could fit in a pea shell.

      1. You said it all and in the best way. I totally agree. We the American People who voted for President Trump will continue to support him and preserve his legacy. Democrats will destroy our country. So SAD! The 80 million Americans who believe the election was fraudulent will not let the Democrats cancel US! We will protest!

    2. bigAlturd: just proves you are yet another trump hater, and that is has nothing to do with Mitch. Go back to sleep until bubble head Biden takes office, then you can toot your horn again.

    3. McConnell is a traitor from hell so is Sen. Gram, Trump will get them when he is back in office, and Kelly Loftier she freaked out and sold out after Trump did so much for her

  2. Joe Biden needs to tell Pelosi to drop her private feud with President Trump and get ready with process of uniting the nation not further dividing it which cause further demonstrations.

    1. As the first one was a total sham and waste of tax payers money we as citizens should be demanding that the officials involved in bringing and wasting our money should have to repay that money. If they had just let him do his job instead of trying to overthrow a duly elected president starting before his inaugration we would not have such an angry nation. The Dems bought this upon themselves and this country, they are the one’s that started the hate campaign and should be made to pay out of their own deep pockets

    2. If Joe Biden wants to unite the country genuinely, he should tell Pelosi to drop the feud. She is a vindictive person and a hypocrite. a spoiled brat with her temper tantrum enriching her pocket with taxpayers dollar. too much for Trump already He had been through a lot.

      1. i have heard tell from a little birdie i know the reason nasty pig-lousy is so shrill and furious is because someone in special ops has possession of her lap-top. i believe a lot of corruption is about to be revealed. the fireworks should be starting within a month.

  3. The whole congress is in panic mode and are doing crazy talk. You all do the correct thing and go to your individual offices, close the doors and chill for 10 days. You are acting like idiots and you are doing it on our dime.

    1. It’s because for the first time, their sanctuary had been invaded by people who refuse to be censured and denied their legitimate votes for the person they wanted as their President. They were so terrified by the fact that not everyone in this nation likes them or thinks they are someone to look up to. They are not. They also recognized that the Antifa people they paid to cause the riot didn’t protect them. Instead treated them just as if they were (and they are) nothing but disgusting politicians. They are also terrified that Special Forces took their laptops, hard drives, servers and encryption keys. There is no way that any of Trump supporters went around and confiscated 21 laptops, 7 hard drives, four servers, and the encryption keys. No way!

  4. How about we impeach Nancy Pelosi for inciting violence by trying to impeach President Trump knowing that there is insufficient time and no chance the Senate will vote for an impeachment!

    1. Pelosi is a real nut case. She is the one that should be impeached. She is the one that Trump followers hate. That’s what? 70-80 million who can’t stand this deranged nut. She doesn’t know when to shut up! All the constant nasty stuff she says about him is 100 times worse about herself…look in the mirror nut!

    1. I feel they both have incited turmoil, divisiveness and have been part of all the coverups and corruption going on in America. They have been there way too long and both are bent on continuing creating havoc.

  5. Nice Move Mitch, I can’t speak for the other 75 million Americans that voted for Trump, but impeachment would not be a good way for Biden to start his Presidency.

    And, there is still work to do in ironing out a fair voting process that all Americans can trust. And we still want to hold someone accountable for the transgressions related to Russia, the Ukraine, and Hunter Biden’s laptop.

      1. You mean like all the info gathered on how the Democrats were in contact with Antifa and Black Lives Matter people on the sixth and before during all the riots causing the divide in our country?
        They supposedly forgot to lock up all their messages back n forth.
        Guess the swamp will still be emptied when congressional members start getting charged

  6. Thank goodness I had the opportunity to grow up in a FREE DEMOCRACY! The United States of America!!
    I feel so bad for the children who will be bearing this NEW Democratic Party……..

    The people and I mean all of our citizens be careful of this NEW LEFT what we knew as a great REPUBLIC is going down a dangerous road only to benefit a FEW !!!

  7. The Commie Dems have stolen the Election, Caused Riots in our streets, Ruined peoples businesses and lives, and Have ALWAYS used LIES and Communist Propaganda just to stay in the game. Other World leaders see this and base their decisions on what they have seen and heard. Bozo Biden and the Stooges behind him will be taken advantage of DAILY.

    1. . . .and the digusting dens treat us as though “WE” are the low lives?!!!!!! They have no clue and will let their leaders sell us out to China within this first year of Obama’s third term.

  8. How long before we can impeach every demo that old Biden puts into his cabinet? They all need to go to prison for their part in the fake election. Will this happen? No. We are now going to be run be demos for the next 4 years unless something happens.

  9. Joe Biden and the Dems cant never unite the American people. Not with him being so called President. He is so evil like all the rest of the dems and deep states and Crazy Old Bag, Black Soul Pelosi. People like these that want to destory America and Its people. Are you dems that voted for these people so Dum to see what they are trying to do to us or you just dont care Sorry it ant going to happened I love America and proud to say so.

  10. The President did not commit any of the allegations the radical democrats mentioned. for all we know they should continue investigating the Biden family for their corruption which is now they are trying to cover. I am sick and tired of the hypocrisy of the left. Biden will never unite the country because he is an illegitimate would be President weak and in the pocket of China . That the votes were stolen from President trump. Biden will never be successful like what President Trump did for this country. He cares about the welfare of the American people. So for those people that voted for Biden the suffering is yet to come and will certainly feel it. I have read that the Capitol riot was staged and was planned by a group. Hope we find out the truth to this.

  11. Democrats need to do something worthwhile for America besides wasting millions trying to remove Trump from the White House and making the American people angrier

  12. How about we the people(the 74,000,000) millon impeach every one of the democrats that tried to impeach President Trump in 2020, and get rid of a whole bunch of jerks.

    1. We all need to contact representatives in Washington and demand something be done about corruption or start getting supplies , weapons , and ammo . Also learn how to make homemade bombs and such things for war .

  13. Thank you, SENATOR Mitch McConnell. Enough is enough. The evil hatred that is going on must stop somewhere. Your efforts are greatly appreciated by many citizens who are fed up with the in-fighting in the political arena. This Country “does not” need selfish legislators that are not working for the betterment of the people. Look at all of the time and taxpayers’ money that has been wasted, the damage to properties, the pain, and suffering caused by the past four years of “political hatred”. We, the people, are now subject to a government of uncertainty. Hopefully, the new administration will get along much better and fulfill their obligations to the American people and the United States of America.

  14. I never did like Pisslosy,Schumer, schiff, AOC , Nader, Omar, pressley, Romney ๐Ÿคฎ, impeach them all ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ

  15. Nancy is all about using our tax dollars for her special interests and to fund her venomous hatred of Trump. She alone is responsible for holding up the stimulus the second time until after the elections, She even admitted doing so and now she wants to waste our money on another impeachment trial, she should be run out of the country. She and Schumer are exactly why we need to have term limits in congress and the senate.

  16. The Democrats have lost their responsibility to the American people, therefore, their credibility and their legitimacy to rule. Their first attempt to impeach President Trump was based on air with none, zip, nada to carry out a trial costing US money, and this second attempt is again a waste of time and money. If President Trump is guilty of anything, it’s his numerous achievements to make American great again. Promises made, promises kept. Too many to mention, but we will keep his legacy alive. What drives the Dems to “impeach” is their fear of President Trump. They are truly afraid of his ability, intelligence, and leadership which none of them have. They hate him so much, they even hate his supporters. The Dems are a joke. They have no credibility.

  17. None of this demonstrating, and wrongful blame and deaths would have never happened if this
    voting fraud would have never happened. I want my vote counted and not trashed by some illegal
    or fraud voter getting credit, making my honest vote not count. I am angry but i have to swallow
    injustice of the system that is supposed to take control and punish all offenders.

  18. Hey folks don’t forget that obummer is still running the dem. party!! He still wants his 3rd term as (a dictator), remember this.

  19. As for the 25th Amendment, Joe Biden better watch out for his name is on the list in order to put the Kamal as POTUS, Joe might be on the impeachment list as well due to his “shady deals” with China, and Hunters dealing with China, Ukraine, and Russia and who knows for sure anywhere else!!!

  20. HOW ABOUT PUT 5 MILLION PEOPLE IN DC OS THE 20th A DAY OF JANUARY AND STAND THERE AND WHEN THE AXX HXLE IS TO BE
    SWORN IN EVERY BODY RAISE CRAP AND DON’T STOP UNTIL THEY STOP THE SHOW.

  21. Yes, pelosi,shummer and all their gang need thrown out. Reality is that won’t happen. The Republican Party needs to grow a spine, make a plan, run candidates we can trust to stand up for us and this country. get people to the polls and watch the polling like the dems do. Far to long the Republican party has been to lackadaisical and let the dems do whatever they wanted. Hence, witch pelosi and her gang of misfits. Let’s all pray for God’s blessings on this country and allow President Trump to run again in 2025 and “WIN”. Then maybe this country will become great again.

  22. 7/8ths of Congress are blatantly organized crime like born & bred pelosi & soros-buddy schumer always has been . There is only a hand full of actual pro-Americans left in Congress . The rest are NWO agenda criminals .

  23. Listen up:
    Can we registered-trump voters sue state elected officials for their unconstitutional changes in their state’s voting rights leading to Biden voters in those states having more votes than Trump voters? Can we sue the Democrat Party for their illegal actions that resulted in illegal votes being counted for Biden in certain states contributing to our legal votes not being enough for Trump to win that state’s electoral voters? Can we bring criminal charges against the Democrat Party for stealing this election from us Trump voters with illegal votes for Biden? If each Trump voter contributed just $10 to a legal firm like ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice) to be our lawyers that would be at least 74 million dollars.
    What do you think?

  24. The Democrats are desperate to impeach President Trump, not because he didn’t do his job or made mistakes, but because they know they’ll never beat him in 2024.

  25. The people that need to be impreached are Pelosi, Schumer and Schiff. All three are as useless as a pile of it and you know what I mean. Pelosi is so full of hate, how does she even get out of bed each day. The Democrats are still mad because they didn’t get their job done 4 years ago and Clinton didn’t get in the White House. She, like Pelosi is a witch. They are power hungry witches without a care for anyone else. A smart person could out debate them anytime. The only thing they know is left richness. We are in for four long, long years. Republicans better start getting ready for the end of 4 years, but personally, I cannot imagine anyone strong as Trump running for the office, because we have a lot of yellow bellied Republicans. They don’t stand up for the people of the U.S., and some of them go along with the Democrata. What a shame. If you cannot stand for your party, you should nor be in D.C. Nice Mitt needs to go back to Utah and stay there, he is so two faced..

  26. Hey, didnโ€™t you hear CCP Joe call us all thugs. But the laughing hyena will take over in a few months. Evil won this round

  27. Do they mean dangerous acts like holding the Democrats responsible for all their corruption? They are all running scared, and so they should be. The majority of them (Democrats) and some Republicans are heading to gitmo for treason. Canโ€™t wait to watch the tribunals.
