House Judiciary members, such as Reps. Cicilline and Raskin, say they support Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to hold the impeachment articles until they see the parameters of a Senate trial.
. Rep. Jamie Raskin, another Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, defended Pelosi’s position to withhold the articles, but pressed on what he wanted to see from McConnell. He said he wanted to see the Senate Majority Leader’s plan in writing.
Raskin said it’s not enough that McConnell has been pretty clear about what the process will look like. He also accused Sen. Lindsey Graham and McConnell of putting too much of a thumb on the process. He also said Democratic senators should not weigh in at this stage on if Trump should be impeached, and he criticized those who have, such as l 2020 hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
“All 494 senators need to consider very carefully what their oath is, ”Raskin said.
