Democratic leaders in the House and Senate said they won’t change the schedule for impeaching President Trump or holding a trial in order to accommodate the field of Senate Democrats running for president.
“The bottom line is, impeachment is one of the most solemn responsibilities that the Constitution gives the Senate,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York told reporters Tuesday. “We are not going to let scheduling requests get in the way of that solemn responsibility, period.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Under Senate rules, the chamber would be compelled to conduct a trial that could last weeks or months and would mandate senators attend six days per week.
The trial would come as the Democratic hopefuls face a crucial portion of the campaign during the lead up to contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.
The six Democratic senators running for president –Michael Bennet (Col.), Cory Booker (N.J.), Kamala Harris (Cali), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.)– would have to give up valuable campaign time.
