Democratic California Rep. Jackie Speier said Tuesday that impeachment might be heading for a mistrial before it even gets to the Senate.

Speier made the comment to CNN’s Jake Tapper, claiming that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should be made to recuse himself. “We’re going to have to call for a mistrial before it ever gets over to the Senate,” she said, referencing McConnell’s own admission that he would not be an “impartial” juror in an impeachment trial.

McConnell told reporters Tuesday that the entire process was political and that he could not be expected to be impartial. “I’m not an impartial juror. This is a political process. I’m not impartial about this at all,” he said. More

The Democrats want to “impeach” Trump but they don’t want it to go to the Senate… they want to run against an “impeached” president in 2020, not an “acquitted” president.

The only way to do that was to come up with some trick to keep it from going to the Senate after they vote to impeach him.
