McConnell Makes a Change to Senate Trial Rules

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made an important change to the rules for the impeachment trial against President Trump on Tuesday just before the trial began. 


With an additional day for opening statements, the maximum time for debate will be 8 hours a day instead of 12. Democrats had complained about McConnell's initial timeline, arguing that he was trying to hide the trial from the public, who would likely not be tuning in at midnight.

McConnell added that he'll "move to table" any amendment proposed by his Democratic counterpart Chuck Schumer (D-NY). And he plans to introduce quite a few, Schumer revealed on Capitol Hill Tuesday morning.


Democrats want to hear from more witnesses like former national security advisor John Bolton and acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) alleged that any Republican senator who votes against a measure to allow additional witnesses will be complicit in a White House "cover-up." 

Before witnesses, however, Schumer demanded that the White House cough up additional documents related to the impeachment inquiry.
