Teresa Hanafin of the Boston Globe raises an interesting point that I have not seen anywhere else?

In the Senate trial of Trump, Mitch McConnell is coordinating his actions with Trump and his counsel. Is this appropriate? Does it show impartiality?

She writes:

“Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to quash Trump’s desire to go full Apprentice with the trial in the Senate, calling as witnesses everyone from Hunter Biden to Omarosa. McConnell is in cahoots with the White House over how the trial will proceed. “In total coordination with White House counsel,” is how he phrased it on Fox News.

”Presumably he will cross his fingers behind his back when he and the rest of the senators are sworn in as jurors, taking what is supposed to be a solemn oath to be unbiased.

”I solemnly swear … that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of [Donald J. Trump], now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws: So help me God.

”I was on a jury once and I guess I missed the part where I was supposed to coordinate things with the lawyer for the defendant.”

This will be a Trumpian trial: rigged for his benefit.
