Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has a plan for President Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate.

He has discussed it with Senate Majority Leader Chuck ‘Six ways from Sunday’ Schumer.

Schumer indirectly told Trump on a Sunday news show early in 2017 that American intelligence agencies had ‘six ways from Sunday’ to ruin his presidency.

Earlier this month, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi successfully led the House of Representatives to impeach Trump a second time.

The Senate must hold a trial to confirm that impeachment or to acquit America’s 45th president. Fortunately, when the Republicans had a majority in the Senate, they voted to acquit his first impeachment.

This was what McConnell had to say last week:

I’m not sure how Trump can be impeached post-presidency, as he is once again a private citizen, but if the Senate, with its very slim Dem majority, votes to do so, then it would ensure that he could not run for re-election in 2024.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) agrees with McConnell’s plan:

There is no way Joe Biden would reject calls for a second impeachment trial.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer got such a thrill over announcing impeachment proceedings that he made a major Freudian slip:

More details follow:

Trump already has his lawyer:

I wonder if Lindsey Graham recommended him.

Late last week, The Independent reported:

South Carolina attorney Butch Bowers has reportedly been named as Donald Trump’s impeachment lawyer.

Senator Lindsey Graham announced the news on a call with Republican members of the upper chamber of Congress, according to a report by Punchbowl News, confirmed by other outlets.

Mr Bowers will defend the former president in his second impeachment trial before the US Senate. He has previously served as counsel for three governors of South Carolina — Nikki Haley, Henry McMaster and Mark Sanford — and has experience in impeachment, ethics, voter ID and campaign cases.

The poor man:

Many of Mr Trump’s previous legal representatives have distanced themselves from him following his role in inciting the mob who stormed the US Capitol on 6 January.

The legal team from Mr Trump’s first impeachment either declined to represent him again or said they had no interest in doing so.

Mr Bowers has a wide range of experience relevant to Mr Trump’s legal issues …

He stands alone (emphasis mine):

Rudy Giuliani has said he cannot represent his client as he qualifies as a witness to the events leading up to the storming of the Capitol. Former Trump legal advisers Pat Cipollone, Jay Sekulow, Pam Bondi, and Eric Herschmann have all distanced themselves from the new impeachment.

There is no schedule yet for Mr Trump’s second Senate impeachment trial.

Mr Bowers works as part of the Miller Law Group and currently serves in the South Carolina Air National Guard and holds the rank of Colonel.

Let’s consider this, however:

And this (H/T patriot.win, formerly thedonald.win):

And this:

On Tuesday, January 19, Nigel Farage gave an interview to Sky News Australia. He issued a warning to the Republicans that voting to impeach Trump a second time would severely damage their party, especially among Trump voters, who are now the core voters in the party:

Farage fully understands the situation and he doesn’t even live in the US.

Trump entered the 2016 campaign alone in 2015, vilified from the start.

He ended his presidency in 2021 that same way: alone and even more vilified.

I will continue praying for the former president. May God continue to give him the strength he so needs at this time.
