Well heck. I gotta give credit where credit is due, and frankly I don’t care what Mitch McConnell’s motivation is. Maybe he actually wants to do the right and constitutional thing, or maybe he’s just to lazy to come back to work. Who knows and who cares. But he’s made the right decision and should be applauded for it. Yay Mitch! How’s that?

BREAKING: McConnell Rejects Emergency Session On Impeachment, All But Killing Push To Oust Trump
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has rejected a plan to reconvene the Senate in an emergency session to hold trial over an impeachment article against President Trump in the House.

Rush Limbaugh reported this week that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell might not even put the Senate impeachment trial to a vote – that he may just dismiss the whole thing as the sham that it is and not waste any time on it. The other option McConnell he is said to be considering is to have a lightning fast trial and move for acquittal.
Don’t do it, Mitch! Don’t do what Republicans are known for – taking the easy way out.
I know this is the conventional wisdom. I understand that completely. From an emotional standpoint, we are all so disappointed and angered by the attempts to railroad the president that we just want it all to go away.
