Senate trial expected to start January 21

Source: CBS News

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is telling his Republican conference he expects the impeachment trial for President Trump to begin on Tuesday, January 21, and last potentially three to five weeks, two GOP senators told CBS News.

The House is expected to send over the articles on Wednesday or Thursday of this week, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi delayed the transmission. There aren't enough votes for an outright dismissal of the articles of impeachment, as Mr. Trump had hoped.

The trial will run six days a week, including Saturdays, but not Sundays, sources said. McConnell wants to make this "uncomfortable" for senators, a source added.

Senator John Cornyn, a top Republican, told reporters Monday he thinks senators will be "glued to our chair, starting Tuesday."

3. I think someone should get a bunch of kangaroos

dress them up as judges and parade them in front of the senate. It will attract media attention as well as dozens of viral posts on social media.

4. Leave the poor kangaroos alone.

They have been through enough already. Have someone sew up a few kangaroo costumes instead. It would be just as effective, and stem any potential harm to animals.

9. Just as long as it's still going on Feb. 5

I want to see Fat Donnie give the SOTU on Feb. 4 while he's still impeached without a verdict from McConnell's sham trial.
