In case you missed it, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that he’s not an impartial juror when it comes to impeachment:
"I'm not an impartial juror. This is a political process. There's not anything judicial about it," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters. https://t.co/1QjC7IxKaG

Unlike, say, Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris, who’s so impartial that she’s out there promoting impeachment rallies.
Mitch McConnell’s stunning admission isn’t really so much a stunning admission as it is an acknowledgment of what we all know to be true: senators aren’t impartial. Nevertheless, Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier says McConnell’s comments are grounds for a mistrial:
“We’re going to have to call for a mistrial before it ever gets over to the Senate,” Rep. Jackie Speier says in response to House Majority Leader McConnell stating that he is not an impartial juror. “I would think Mitch McConnell should recuse himself.” https://t.co/oFYNesBjH8 pic.twitter.com/XSENN6X1Kb

What is with lefties calling for the recusal of Republicans just because said Republicans might not agree with them?
Of course “conservative blogger”Jennifer Rubin thinks Speier’s right on the money:
YES on mistrial. I have suggested: https://t.co/P4WKuMrJXr

But anyone who’s not a complete moron knows Speier’s just grasping at straws at this point to try to save face in the midst of House Democrats’ crumbling impeachment strategy.
That's not how it works

This broad is asking for a mistrial before a trial even starts.#DemocratLogic

"House Majority Leader McConnell" must recuse himself or President Speier will call a mistrial! https://t.co/O2vR2yi5BX

LOL. Jake & CNN put these people on with zero reflection. Speier & Schiff are among the most partisans in the House. They both would vote to impeach & convict regardless of the charges. Even in Jan 2017. https://t.co/9yV7mChytq

Didn't Sanders, Booker, Harris, and Warren all raise their hands when asked whether Trump should be impeached and removed from office? Should they recuse themselves?

Don’t you know? The rules don’t apply to Democrats.
