    GOP senators considering 'kill switch' option should impeachment trial spiral out of control

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly is close to finalizing a rule that would allow President Trump's team to move to dismiss the articles of impeachment in the Senate quickly after some evidence has been presented, as a sort of safety valve in case Democrats try to drag out the trial for weeks.

    UPDATED 6:45 pm: McConnell releases proposed impeachment trial rules:

    “I am familiar with the resolution as it stood a day or two ago,” Hawley told Axios. “My understanding is that the resolution will give the president's team the option to either move to judgment or to move to dismiss at a meaningful time.” 

    Senator Ted Cruz weighed in on the battle over impeachment witnesses on ‘Sunday Morning Futures,’ saying “if the Senate makes the decision to go down the road of additional withnesses, that could extend it to six, eight weeks, or even longer.”
