The impeachment trial of Pres. Trump is underway. It’s only the third time in our history that a president has been impeached. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell believes its more a political maneuver by Democrats than a fact-based case against the president. McConnell was critical of the way  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi conducted the impeachment signing ceremony where she gave away souvenir pens on a silver platter to supporters. McConnell said “The House’s partisan process distilled into one last perfect visual. Not solemn or serious. A transparently political exercise from beginning to end.” The U.S. Senate will soon decide the president’s fate but regardless of the outcome, the American people will once again have the final say of who they want for president this November.
