Senator Ted Cruz Walks Through Likely Senate Trial Process – Holds Same Concerns as Rand Paul…

Senator Ted Cruz appears for a discussion on the Senate impeachment trial.  Cruz walks through the most likely scenario of 24 hours prosecution case (two or three days), then 24 hours of defense case (two or three days); then the individual Senators submitting questions to the Chief Justice, John Roberts, to ask both sides.   This phase of the process should take two to three weeks total.  Then the issue of “witnesses” will be debated.

.

While the first week is unfolding in the Senate, President Trump will be attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and negotiating more economic benefits for the U.S.  Quite a remarkable contrast.

Adopted yesterday by unanimous consent:

  • A Summons to the White House notifying them of the impeachment trial will be issued by the Senate and delivered by Saturday January 18th, 2020, 6:00pm,
  • The House of Representatives (impeachment managers) have a deadline of 5:00pm Saturday, January 18th, 2020, for the filing of their impeachment brief to the Senate.
  • The White House (defense lawyers) have a response deadline of 5:00pm Monday, January 20th, for their response to the House impeachment brief.
  • The House of Representatives (impeachment managers) have a deadline of Noon Tuesday, January 21st, for their rebuttal brief to the White House defense brief.
  • The Senate Trial begins at 1:00pm Eastern, Tuesday January 21st, 2020.

Senators will not be allowed to bring their cell phones or any electronic device into the Senate chamber while the trial is underway.

    Here ‘s the best option: God could open up the ground under DC and send them all down to the pit while His leader and family are out of town. That place is as poisonous as Sodom and Gomorrah.

    I am ecstatic Senator Cruz and POTUS have seemingly buried the hatchet. Cruz is a good one to have in your corner. Not a real Cruz fan but he is one smart son of a gun.

    My opinion is Senator Ted Cruz’s talent is wasted as a Senator. I would love to see him as the replacement for Ginsberg. My bet is he would not want to do that to his family as it would require them to relocate to Swampington D.C.

    When it comes to witnesses, the Dems had control of all witnesses during the investigative phase. In this phase, only witnesses that were requested but not allowed to testify should be allowed in the Senate. No new witnesses. They had their chance.
    .
    Remember, every Dem witness appeared although the ones that didn’t work out so well for the Dems had their testimony sealed so we’ve only seen what has been leaked from them. All but two Republican witnesses were rejected. The two not rejected were on the Dems list too. So every witness rejected by the Dems should now be allowed to appear.
    .
    As for the witnesses that the Dems want to call now? They never put them on the witness list. The Dems never sent them a subpoena. They had their chance and should not get a do over in the Senate.
