Chuck Schumer was stopped dead in his tracks after this huge impeachment defeat

The Senate impeachment trial for Donald Trump has begun.

But Democrats are stewing with rage.

And that’s because Chuck Schumer was stopped dead in his tracks after this huge impeachment defeat.

Democrats in the House rushed to pass articles of impeachment because they claimed President Trump presented such a grave threat to the Republic that Democrats could not wait for court battles over witness testimony.

But now that the shoe is on the other foot, Democrats are complaining.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released his draft of the rules that would govern the Senate impeachment trial and McConnell’s memo outlined a procedure similar to the 1999 impeachment trial for Bill Clinton.

McConnell proposed 24 hours for each side to make their case followed by 16 hours of Senators asking questions.

But under McConnell’s rules each side would have two days to use their 24 hours.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer ranted and raved over the accelerated process.

“Senator McConnell repeatedly promised Senators, the public, and the press that his rules for the trial would be the same as the rules for President Clinton’s trial. Nothing could be further from the truth,” Schumer said.

Instead, the rules “depart dramatically” from that precedent, Schumer raged in a statement released to the press.

“Under this resolution, Senator McConnell is saying he doesn’t want to hear any of the existing evidence, and he doesn’t’ want any new evidence,” Schumer continued “A trial where there’s no evidence, no existing record, and no new evidence, no witnesses, no documents, that’s not a trial at all, it’s a cover-up and the American people will see it for exactly what it is.”

Democrats now claim a “rushed” trial, which doesn’t commit to calling witnesses the Democrats refused to pursue all avenues to obtain their testimony, amounts to a “cover up.”

That is little more than lies and political posturing.

    What does the ass’s ass expect? They rushed through a “trial”, allowed no testimony except what Schiff okayed as to not hurt THEIR case. Instead of gathering ALL their “evidence” BEFORE the “fake” trial THEY held they rushed through it, called in witnesses that fit THEIR agenda, took what THEY called airtight, hold off sending the papers to the Senate, and when they get there they realize they had a flimsy case so they wanted to “re-write” the Senate “rules” to fit THEM! As all know, the Congress has NO jurisdiction over the Senate court and the outcome! After supposedly having all affairs in order, once realized they couldn’t win they wanted time to bring in more liars to testify. THEY gave President Trump a “mock” trial. Well, Senate says NO, they should have had everything lined up at THEIR end. Now they cry “foul” and the American people will see it as hiding something things! Well Schumer, guess what, the PEOPLE will see it for what it is, another attempt to undo the Presidency the PEOPLE voted for. Undo all the GOOD President Trump did, take over and got America going better again, all which THEY want to do is all at the TAXPAYERS expense! THAT is what the people see! So as we been sayin: Trump 2020! Four More Years! MAGA! KAG! God Bless America! God Bless President Trump!

    Just because the House didn’t do their due diligence and allow both sides to question witnesses. That doesn’t mean the Senate needs to do their job. They had their chance, they ruined it for themselves. But it could be because of all the morons they had running things. Piglosi, Schitt, Nabler and Chucky all of these immoral morons will get exactly what they deserve.
