    As the impeachment trial gets underway this week in the US Senate, there’s a lot of focus on how long the process may play out, with Sen. Lindsey Graham letting it be known Sunday that the likelihood of an immediate dismissal is pretty much out.


    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who has a reputation for being ruthless in his control of the upper chamber, has previously signaled his intentions to make short work of the impeachment trial.


    To that effect, McConnell is close to finalizing a rule that would allow President Trump’s team to move to dismiss the articles of impeachment quickly after some evidence has been presented, Fox News reported.


    The move is seen as a de facto “safety valve” in the event Democrats try to drag out the trial for weeks. In effect, McConnell does not intend to allow Rep. Adam Schiff and his merry band of co-conspirators to hijack proceedings.

    Good.

    I think it was Bill O'Reilly who often said: " Cut the mike. " when a guest tried to hijack an interview. I hope McGerbil does the same thing. Nothing would be more infuriating to a Dem.

    He's knee deep in the swamp along side Biden et al .... but he's OUR swamp creature. His performance on judicial nominations will have implications for a generation.
