    The biggest fear of McConell and other Republicans is that Trump will start a new party and get his base vote against the current Republican party and destroy the core Republican party to a level that they will never be able to win against the Democrats.

    @Rihana,

    You are right about not having enough time to complete the trial as it would involve arguments and the presentation of evidences in the presence of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (even though he had to only conduct the proceedings with no say on the matter). DOJ has 100,000 video evidences to analyze and they are going to take time. Only last night, a Representative (a retired Helicopter Pilot from New Jersey) has notified the media that she had filed a complaint against a certain Representatives for arranging a visit inside the Capitol for the rioters to assess the Capitol before the January 6th riots.

    The bottom line is this trial will be for a longer period of time and then the Senate will have to decide based on evidences. If President Trump is not in office, it will release the pressure of the back of the Republican Senators. Many people inside the Capitol including Capitol Police, National Guard, Members of the House, and Senate Members could become witnesses in this trial. Even if President Trump leaves the White House on January 20th, he could be impeached resulting in him not getting past President's pension and perquisites. Besides, after January 20th, Democrats hold the majority and the proceedings will happen as per the plans of the Democrats. Subject to the trial becoming successful, they could pass a resolution with a simple majority to not allow President Trump to never hold public office again in the future.

    Unfortunately, it is going to take time away from the approval of the nominees of the cabinet members selected by the President-elect Joe Biden.

    That is why Senator McConnell is talking to all funding sources to remove the fuel so that there can be no fire.

    All the money he raised was after he lost the election.

    But he made them believe that election is stolen from him and in order to fix it, he needed money. Perhaps, funding happened with a hope that what he promised could be done. Even though it is voluntary contribution, it is always done with a certain expectation.
