Weeks after saying ‘I’m not an impartial juror,’ McConnell pledges impartiality in oath
The oath’s language marked a contrast from what McConnell said in December before the House voted to impeach Trump, charging the Republican president with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
“I’m not an impartial juror,” McConnell said in December after a reporter asked him what his message is to Americans who might have concerns about his ability to be impartial during an impeachment trial.
“Impeachment is a political decision. The House made a partisan political decision to impeach,” he added. “I would anticipate we will have a largely partisan outcome in the Senate. I’m not impartial about this at all.”
In any court in any country, this would have gotten all of these guy kicked off the jury..
Why not have a jury selection of average citizens?
