Mitch McConnell has proposed delaying Trump's second impeachment trial until mid-February.
McConnell has presented the idea to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who would have to agree to the plan.
While Democrats do not have immediate plans to eliminate the filibuster, they are unwilling to commit to taking it off the table.
Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is pushing for protections for the legislative filibuster.
The Senate majority leader urged colleagues to address the issue ‘head on before the passions of one particular issue or another arise.’
The Senate majority leader made his remarks on the Senate floor on Tuesday.
‘The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people,’ McConnell said.
Now is the rare exception when McConnell and the Senate should be pursuing decisive action, not dawdling.
The swift second impeachment brings with it a host of questions about what comes next, for Trump and for the country.
