Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) changed his proposed rules for President Trump’s impeachment trial by allowing each side to have three days to present their arguments, instead of just two, PBS reports.
That change could allow the trial to wrap up earlier each evening instead of pushing it past midnight.
McConnell will also now automatically add evidence from the House impeachment inquiry to the record unless there’s an objection. His draft resolution required a majority vote.
The New York Times reports McConnell “made changes to the proposed rules for the trial after Republicans senators, including Susan Collins of Maine, raised concerns about two provisions.”Save to Favorites
