The Despicable Phoniness of Mitch McConnell

Headline: “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of trying to tell his chamber how to run a trial.” This is typical McConnell phony talk. Pelosi isn’t telling him how to run a trial; she’s only telling him that he should conduct a trial, as contemplated by the Constitution: That means having witnesses testify, relevant documents admitted, and arguments made, rather than going through a few meaningless formalities, followed by a vote resulting in instant acquittal, followed by proclamations that Trump has been vindicated.
