How Senators and the Chief Justice can ensure a fair trial
On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released proposed rules for the Senate's impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. In this initial proposal, he gave House impeachment managers and Trump's legal team only 24 hours each spread over a two-day period for opening arguments. Just before the start of the trial, however, McConnell changed the schedule so that the 24-hours would be spread over three days. This is still a notable difference from Bill Clinton's impeachment trial, which held opening arguments over a four-day period. Notwithstanding the change, it appears that McConnell is trying to rush through an impeachment trial that he never wanted to hold in the first place. So much for basic fairness.
