"McConnell is negotiating with Schumer to set Senate trial rules; you are withholding the Impeachment Resolution until an impartial proceeding is assured. No agreement with McConnell’s name on it can be trusted; he will game the system as he did in the Garland episode.
Withholding it is the only way to finesse McConnell, to prevent a sham trial. No one expects Trump to be convicted, because McConnell has the votes for a finding of innocence. But the case for conviction will gather strength as Trump’s stonewalling of evidence crumbles in one court decision after another. You need to let this happen, Madam Speaker.
