McConnell Impeach Plan: Run Like Hell, Pray for No Surprises
The vision that Senate Republican leaders have for the impeachment trial of President Trump, which is set to begin on Tuesday, is simple: a sprint that briskly checks the required procedural boxes before arriving, business-like, at the end result—an acquittal of the president. 

The vision that Trump himself has for the impeachment trial of President Trump, however, may be different. He has approached the trial that will decide the fate of his presidency as a scorched-earth battle to vindicate himself and a zero-sum loyalty test for congressional Republicans. 

His trial team, announced last week, reflects that combative mindset. Between Kenneth Starr—the architect of President Clinton's impeachment 20 years ago—and Alan Dershowitz, the celebrity attorney and former Clinton backer turned Trump defender, what is effectively a Fox News panel will be guiding Trump's defense in a trial before 100 U.S. senators and the chief justice of the Supreme Court.

How Trump's Impeachment Changes Dems' Final Sprint in Iowa
At 1 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon, every senator participating in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump will be commanded by the Senate sergeant-at-arms "to keep silent upon pain of imprisonment."

But for the four senators who also happen to be running to replace Trump as president, silence will feel a little like imprisonment.

With the Iowa caucuses less than two weeks away, the sudden removal of four Democratic presidential hopefuls from the field—including three of the five highest-polling candidates—presents an unprecedented challenge for campaigns desperate to prove their staying power in the early states.

Mitch McConnell's Impeachment Rules are a Sham, and Donald Trump Attorney Ken Starr Knows It
During the impeachment of Bill Clinton, Ken Starr, one of the major new additions to Donald Trump's legal team, argued that a president under investigation for criminal conduct must not be permitted to use governmental authority to embargo witnesses or hide the evidence against him. Starr's arguments before Congress as a prosecutor decades ago apply directly to the upcoming Senate trial of Donald Trump, and the assiduous efforts of Mitch McConnell and his fellow GOP Senators to engineer a sham trial.

Start with McConnell, who for weeks has insisted that the Senate will "exactly" follow the procedures employed during the trial of Bill Clinton. Under those rules, the Senate formally admitted into evidence the entirety of the extremely comprehensive record assembled by Starr's team, and then decided whether to call additional witnesses after the parties presented their opening arguments and answered questions from the legislators. 

Given that Trump has schemed to withhold potentially key witnesses and evidence, leaving the record far from complete, following the "Clinton Rules" in the Trump case makes little sense. Furthermore, on the eve of the trial Monday, McConnell laid out his proposed rules, which do not follow a key provision of the Clinton procedures. Instead of automatically admitting the House's materials into evidence,
