The vast majority of 2020 Democrats have more than endorsed the impeachment of President Trump. Despite Trump’s lack of wrongdoing, leftists are all for wasting taxpayers’ dollars on an inquiry which is bound to go absolutely nowhere. However, as the old saying goes, “be careful what you wish for.”
New developments from the Washington Examiner confirm that the timing of various impeachment proceedings is beginning to interfere with Democrat congressmembers who are also running for office. However, leaders within the Democrat Party have maintained that they won’t work the timing of proceedings in order to fit with 2020 Democrats’ schedules and campaign events.
It appears as though this is something that Democrats forgot to consider as they screamed in favor of impeachment from the rooftops.
Democrat Leaders’ Message to 2020 Candidates
On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer branded the impeachment proceedings against President Trump as “the most solemn responsibilities that the Constitution gives the Senate.” Schumer stated that in light of this “responsibility,” the Senate won’t entertain any “scheduling requests” from 2020 Democrats.
This announcement is bound to impact Democrat senators and 2020 candidates Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Michael Bennett, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Amy Klobuchar if the House turns over impeachment proceedings and articles to the Senate.
In the event of this occurrence, the Senate will have to conduct a trial requiring at least six days of attendance per week. Senate impeachment trials can last for weeks or months; the timing of all this comes as 2020 Democrats have weeks left to compete in states like South Carolina, Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada for their party’s nomination.
Will the Senate Have to Conduct a Trial?
Right now, only time will tell whether or not the Senate ends up conducting a trial. Impeachment proceedings are still currently playing out in the House; although, multiple testimonies have only further proven the absence of a quid-pro-quo and the lack of any wrongdoing on President Trump’s end.
Nevertheless, Democrats are bound and determined to take their sham of an impeachment as far as they can; therefore, the possibility of the Senate conducting a trial is very real.
