In any trial in this country if a juror was found to be collaborating with one side or the other to predetermine the outcome, that person would be removed from the jury and charged with jury tampering. It should be no different in this case. Senator McConnell in his arrogance has made it clear he intends to see that President Trump is acquitted. He has met with the White House to plan how that will happen. He has no business being on the jury of this trial! Senator, especially Senate Republicans like Senator Susan Collins, should step up and honor their oath of office to protect the Constitution without making "rules" and finding ways around it.
