Schumer Blasts McConnell’s Senate Trial “Cover Up”

The Hill reports:

Senate Democrats slammed Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday night over his proposed rules for President Trump’s impeachment trial, accusing the GOP leader of a “cover up.” Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) called McConnell’s proposal a “national disgrace,” and vowed to try to change it on the floor on Tuesday. The rules would condense the total number of days allowed for opening arguments compared to the Clinton trial.

“After reading his resolution, it’s clear Senator McConnell is hell-bent on making it much more difficult to get witnesses and documents and intent on rushing the trial through,” Schumer said in a statement. Schumer vowed that Democrats will force votes on the floor on Tuesday to “address the many flaws in this deeply unfair proposal and to subpoena the witnesses and documents we have requested.”
