How Can the Senate Impeachment Trial Be Fair?


the house just voted to impeach and it’s
over to the Senate senator Mitch McConnell has basically said he’s not
gonna be an impartial juror I’m gonna take my cues from the from the
president’s lawyers in total coordination with the White House
counsel’s office there will be no difference between the president’s
position and our position we’re talking to senators what they expect and if the
American people can expect a fair trial sänger McConnell just said the other day
that he’s openly coordinating with the president’s attorneys is there any
chance for a truly fair trial that makes it much less likely senator Mitch
McConnell has said that he is coordinating with the president’s
attorneys that he’s not gonna be an impartial juror and the impeachment
trial the fact that she was gonna be impartial I mean my gosh what he’s
joking but not all is openly saying he won’t be impartial you think that’s
problematic you think Americans can expect a fair hearing if he’s probably
saying he’s coordinating with the president’s attorneys I can’t speak for
McConnell I need speak for myself I’m going in there to learn the facts
McConnell is at least honest does anybody think that Schumer really hasn’t
made up his mind and when he kind of sits there and says we have to be
impartial the guy’s trying to manipulate this for political advantage
what if President Obama had asked a foreign government to investigate you
would you see that as an abuse of power if President Obama are one of his people
had said as a condition of receiving US aid you must do XY and Z I’m describing
exactly what Joe Biden senator there’s been a lot of talk about process but
just about the merits of this impeachment case if President Obama had
asked a foreign government to investigate you or another member of the
opposite party would you see that as an abuse of power I see that as being
something I wouldn’t do it’s something that I don’t necessarily think
appropriate but when you try to build that into an
a German case that’s a totally different thing and when it comes to behavior your
style your point of view I think everyone is gonna look at this and try
to learn from it senator Murkowski I just want to ask about being briefed on
some of the energy initiatives I know it’s very important for your state but I
agree with that but you know um senator Toomey I just want to ask you
about the impeachment process do you think it’s gonna be pop be fair do you
see any possible defections I doubt it
