Trump impeachment trial remains in limbo as Republicans and Democrats clash – live – The Guardian,

Republican senatorJosh Hawleyis expected to introduce a measure today aimed at dismissing the impeachment charges that the House has approved againstTrump.

Josh Hawley(@ HawleyMO)

Dems said impeachment was URGENT. Now they don’t want to have a trial, because they have no evidence. In real world, if prosecution doesn’t proceed with case, it gets dismissed. So on Monday, I will introduce measure to dismiss this bogus impeachment for lack of prosecution

January 2,

According to Axios, Hawley’s resolution “would allow the Senate to dismiss for lack of prosecution any articles of impeachment that the House of Representatives has delayed transmitting for calendar days or more. ”

But it’s worth noting that the Senate has been out of session since the House passed the articles of impeachment, and House speaker

(Nancy Pelosi) **************** is expected to transmit the articles at some point this week.

Hawley’s decision seems unlikely to gain momentum, but it underscores the possible political perils of HouseDemocratscontinuing to delay a Senate trial.

The Impeachment Hoax, just a continuation of the Witch Hunt which started even before I won the Election, must end quickly. Read the Transcripts, see the Ukrainian President’s strong statement, NO PRESSURE – get this done. It is a con game by the Dems to help with the Election!

House speakerNancy Pelosi

has not yet transmitted the aricles of impeachment to the Senate, but many expect her to do so this week. Senate majority leaderMitch McConnellhas made clear the delay will not affect his handling of the trial.

Once the articles are transmitted, the Republican-controlled Senate will need to determine the parameters of the trial, which is expected to end in the president’s acquittal.

Senate minority leaderChuck Schumerhas been demanding that White House advisers testify during the trial, but that request will not be approved unless he can get four Republican senators to sign on to it.

Senate resumes work as impeachment trial remains in limbo

Good morning, live blog readers!

Members of Congress have returned to Washington to resume work, but the impeachment ofDonald Trumpremains stalled, as House speakerNancy Pelosi

has still not transmitted the articles of impeachment to the Senate.

Pelosi has delayed transmitting the articles in the hope of gaining leverage over the procedures adopted for the trial, but Senate majority leader(Mitch McConnell) ************** has shown no sign of allowing the strategy to affect his approach to impeachment.

Senate minority leaderChuck Schumerhas been trying to pressure McConnell to call White House advisers to testify during the trial, but the New York Democrat would need four Republican senators to join his cause to have that request approved.

“I hope, pray, and believe there’s a decent chance that four Republicans will join us. If they do, we will have a fair trial, ”Schumer said yesterday.

Pelosi could transmit the articles as soon as tomorrow, but it remains entirely unclear whether she will. Until then,Democrats

and Republicans will continue to clash over a trial that currently lacks a timeline.
