In the Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has proposed a set of impeachment trial rules that critics describe as “rigged” and “intentionally designed to keep the Senate and the public in the dark.” Under the proposed rules, hearings would go well into the evening, hours in which the public would miss the opportunity to hear crucial pieces of evidence. The streamlined trial also means that the entire process could come to a completion in roughly a week — in stark contrast with the 1999 impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton that lasted over a month. “It’s important that the Senate do its job,” says Kristen Clarke, president of the National Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, “so that the public and the Senate can understand what the president did here.”
