Following a Thursday report pushing Democratic Party concerns about Senate Republicans having lunch at the White House to discuss impeachment, CBS correspondent Ben Tracy shared additional concerns that an impeachment trial in the Senate could keep Democratic candidates off the campaign trail. But the larger problem that didn’t seem to cross his mind, was the fact that President Trump’s 2020 opponents would be voting to remove him from office.
“Now, a trial in the Senate could start in early January, possibly lasting several weeks. That means it could run right up against the early caucuses and primaries,” Tracy cautioned as he was wrapping up his report on CBS Evening News. “And, Norah, that could cause a big problem for the President's Democratic rivals, who are also Senators, who would be stuck here in D.C.”
That fretting came moments after boosting Democratic whining about Trump inviting GOP Senators to the White House for lunch.
