    Leader McConnell Rejects Request for Emergency Session for Impeachment Trial.....

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reportedly will not convene an emergency session to move on a second impeachment of President Trump before January 19. Any trial will now take place early in the Biden administration. Senate Democrats asked McConnell to reconvene the chamber this week in order to expedite the impeachment process before Trump leaves office next week. The Kentucky Republican is said to believe that impeachment is the best avenue to "purge" the president from the GOP......snip~

    What I heard on Texas Public Radio was concern that so now this pushes it off to the next session but Biden wanted the Senate's full attention on his agenda.

    So either:
    1) McConnell doesn't want Trump impeached
    2) He wants him impeached but wants to wait until the new Senate is in because he thinks it will have a better chance of finding him guilty
    3) He wants to wait to do it during Biden's time to distract from his agenda
    4) He doesn't want to interrupt his vacation

    I'd go with 4.

    McConnell's attitude toward Trump is the same as Lincoln's toward slavery.

    Just substitute *Senate majority* for *union*.

    McConnell is establishment neoconservative. He is worried about his corporate money going away.
