On the impeachment verdict of the House Judiciary committee:
I think this is my first post in this lengthy thread. Now that the committee as voted to send their decision to the full house of Congress, and the probable vote to formally impeach DJT, the matter will proceed to the Senate for a trial. I understand each and every one of the 100 Senators must swear an oath to follow the facts and not to pre-judge the outcome.
Given McConnell's promise to act in concert with White House (Presidential) lawyers throughout the process up to and including the final verdict (which seems to be a foregone conclusion), is that not akin to a judge in a jury trial, and the jury itself, combining all their efforts in the defense of the accused? Assuming the conviction fails (less than 67 Senators convicting POTUS of the charges), could individual Senators be charged with perjury for having violated their oaths to remain impartial?
What a mess.
