Should McConnell Recuse Himself from the Senate Impeachment Trial?

    The Senate is Constitutionally required to conduct the impeachment trial of President Trump when Speaker Pelosi transmits the articles thereof. Although the outcome is pre-determined, the appearance of impartiality will influence the electorate in the upcoming election. Republicans have an undesirable dilemma: impartiality may anger their base who view it as weakness in “legitimizing” the decision of the House; but McConnell’s kowtowing to the White House may lead independent voters to kick the majority out of power. While fairness should always be the virtue sought, I secretly hope the majority keeps their collective heads in the sand and chooses voter wrath over Trumpian wrath.
