Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Democrats slam McConnell for Trump impeachment trial ‘cover-up’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

House Democrats accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of seeking to cover-up President Trump’s misdeeds with a quickie impeachment trial that would keep the American people from seeing key evidence.

Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Jerry Nadler said Tuesday that the powerful GOP leader is pushing to exclude witnesses and documents and to force testimony late into the night to ensure Trump’s acquittal.

“This is not a process for a fair trial. This is the process for a rigged trial. This is the process if you do not want the American people to see the evidence,” Schiff said at a morning news conference.

Sen. Chuck Schumer accused Trump of “crimes against democracy itself.” and unloaded on McConnell for acting as a de facto leader of Trump’s defense.

“The McConnell rules are designed by President Trump and for President Trump,” Schumer said. “He wants the process rushed with as little evidence as possible in the dead of night.”
