Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told his fellow Republicans that a Senate impeachment trial could begin as early as Thanksgiving, multiple news outlets reported Wednesday.

McConnell explained how the impeachment process would work during a private weekly lunch meeting with GOP lawmakers on Wednesday, giving a PowerPoint presentation along with Sen. Lindsey Graham, the Judiciary Committee Chairman.

The article goes on to state the following:

The discussion reflects a growing recognition that the House will vote to approve articles of impeachment by late next month following a fast-moving investigation. Democrats set themselves an unofficial deadline of completing their impeachment inquiry by the end of the year to avoid dragging what will be a deeply contentious and distracting fight into 2020.

The article states that if the House impeaches President Trump, the Senate would then hold a trial to determine whether to remove the president from office. He would then become the third president in US history to be impeached.

    If they (Republicans) don’t stand with Trump to a man (or woman or anything they want to be) it marks the end of the Republican party. Independent will become the largest block of voters and term limits with teeth will end career politics and all the fortunes that are made on the backs of people who used to think our government protected freedom of speech and thought and the heady pursuit (not “guarantee” mind you) of happiness. And Trump will be re-elected, one way or another (write-in maybe). He is good at it, doesn’t have a burning quest to get rich from it and I for one want to continue to watch him succeed! Stand with me on this, everyone, please! If even one Republican votes to impeach, the very next day I will change my voting status officially to independent and only consider returning if whoever cast that vote is immediately and harshly sent home for good, I mean dramatically, all backs turned toward them forever (sorry, now entering rant mode! I’m done.)

      The left has it so bad they are ok with the country burning with a civil war. Some republicans aren’t any better protecting their corrupt Benjamins.
      Stand with Trump or perish. Anyone turning their backs on Trump will suffer the consequences with no safe heaven. The American people with come for thee in the voting booth. Who will find themselves on the wrong side of history?

        I guess that means that Mitt Romney, the slime, will perish. I agree with everyone but the thing that could save EVERYTHING would be a Convention of States. We can MAKE them have term limits, We can MAKE them live under the laws they make for us, We can MAKE them live under Social Security and not the golden parachutes they have now. If you are not familiar with what a Convention of States is – Google it – they will even send you a document explaining more if you ask!!

    The sentence at the end is condeming. Does that mean Republicans will impeach? If so, then what evidence do they have that they are holding back?

      I agree, the way it’s worded it’s like they’ve already got the president impeached. Impeached for what, I have NO idea, and neither does anybody else. HOWEVER, the Senate would have to get 2/3’s vote to impeach the president. Hopefully, there are enough Republicans (not RINOS) in the Senate that they wouldn’t be able to get a 2/3’s vote. That would be the end of all the BS from the Democrats, at least until after Trump is elected to a second term. Then I’m sure the Democrats will start the same old BS until the end of Trump’s term in 2025.

    It had better be dead on arrival in the Senate, or they’ll be looking for new jobs.

    We have entered a sad time when the House can vote impeachment without any reason. If the Senate follows suit, we are finished as a country.

    President Trump is the greatest President we will ever see. He has saved the Republic. The Democrats cannot beat him in an election. The must impeach him. He has done nothing wrong but Shifty Shiff is holding secret inquirers looking for something to nail the President with and he will lie like he has already. Shuff should be arrested along with Nancy for trying to overthrow our government. This is a coup people. They mean to destroy our country and make us their slaves. Red alert!
