If I were Senator McConnell, I would wait as long as Nancy wants to take up impeachment. They are up against the calendar, so sit on it if you want.
I wouldn't play ball one iota if I were him. The House did it's part, so they can butt out.

1SG (Join to see) Agreed. I wonder if this wasn't the strategy all along. Last night, it was "we must do this now", "do our duty", "clear and present danger" and all that. Now? Wait and see if there will be a fair trial? I don't expect Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, or Elizabeth Warren are fair and open minded on the question. No...the blemish has been established for the 2020 election. The last thing Democrats want is an acquittal. I don't think the Articles will ever be passed to the Senate.

Maj William W. 'Bill' Price - I disagree that they'll hold them forever. That would just piss off everybody, especially the ravenous "impeach 45" crowd.

So a completely partisan group of lawmakers voted along party lines with minimal circumstantial evidence to impeach a sitting president (which many of them claimed they would do right after he was elected and had not even done anything as a sitting president) and now a partisan group of lawmakers will vote along party lines to acquit the president of these “crimes”. Such wonderful political theater and a waste of money and time when our lawmakers could actually be doing some actual legislative work. *sigh*

I find it funny how many on the left are all for getting rid of the second and doing away with the electoral college yet have been stating just how upset our founders would be with Trump and that Trump is exactly why they created the impeachment process thus preventing great harm to our country. I have a funny feeling they would be upset with congress's stagnation and party politics.

I say if they want to reinvent America I say how about trying term limits first? Seems like we should demand this and then see what happens.

I just wish we could go back to the old old old days when normal people ran for public office and you made a meager wage to serve and it was about service and not a pathway to become a millionaire. Amazing how people can do one term in Congress or the senate with less than a 100k gross income and then leave office and be a millionaire within a couple of years. So strange. Should pay them all about 75k with benefits while in office and guarantee they can go back to their old jobs when they are done with their service and give them term limits. It would end a lot of the problems.

Actually I don’t think the Senate vote will be purely along partisan lines. I think some Democrats will join Republicans voting to keep Trump in Office!

Five Things You Missed Because of Impeachment
Contrary to what you may have seen on the news, impeachment wasn't the only thing happening in DC this week. Here are a few things you may have missed due to the impeachment craziness here in Washington.

1. Booming Jobs Numbers
It's been almost two years since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was enacted, and guess what? The economy just keeps booming. The most recent jobs report showed that our economy created 266,000 jobs in November, bringing the unemployment rate to 3.5% -- a 50 year low. Wages are rising and unemployment is falling, which is great news for Northeast Wisconsin.

2. A Deal on USMCA
President Trump signed the USMCA more than a year ago. And after months of Speaker Pelosi playing political games, she finally decided it was important and came to an agreement with the Trump Administration. This is big news for Wisconsin and big news for America. And as Rep. Gallagher said, "It's about damn time ."

3. Action on Cartels
In light of recent cartel-related violence in Mexico, Rep. Gallagher introduced two bills that support Mexico's anti-corruption campaign and ensure thugs in Mexican cartels are met with the full force of the law. Criminal organizations like these are tearing our communities and families apart. It's time we get serious about dealing with them.

4. A Win for our Troops
Congress' most important role is to provide for the common defense, and the National Defense Authorization Act that passed the House this week takes important steps to do that. It continues bipartisan work to build a 355 ship Navy, gets tough on China, and most importantly, gives our troops a well-deserved pay raise. And it passed with overwhelming bipartisan support.

5. No Budget, No Pay
There are four working days left in the year for Congress, yet we still don't have a bill put together to fund the government. As Rep. Gallagher has said time and again, this is insane. That's why he sent a letter to House and Senate leadership urging them to pass a bill that makes sure Congress does not get paid if they don't have a budget. If Congress can't do its most basic job, representatives should face consequences – just like everyone else.
