Moonshine is made at night, history is made at night, and now Senate cover ups join the list of the nocturnally manufactured. Maybe Mitch McConnell figures he’ll just wear everybody down, like Werner Ehrhard used to do at EST seminars, not letting anybody take bathroom breaks and disrupting their eating and sleeping patterns. Ehrhard did it as a control mechanism and McConnell is following suit with his two twelve-hour days, sixteen hours of questioning and four hours of deliberation. Witnesses will be deposed and then it will be decided which of the deposed witnesses should testify.

#MidnightMitch has already admitted he’s working hand-in-hand with Trump on the #impeachment trial & violating his oath to be impartial—but his proposed rules for the trial (holding the trial at 1am??) are yet more evidence that he’s helping the White House perpetrate a cover-up. https://t.co/L2TzAeUuuB

No, Mr. President, we did ask John Bolton to testify. You ordered him not to, and blocked others, like Mick Mulvaney.
All Americans know what a fair trial includes documents and witnesses.

100%. Here's a nice detail: Sen doesn't have to enter the House evidence into the trial record! He'll always go as low as possible, and then lower. https://t.co/6Ym5uj5dw9

One thing makes sense about McConnell’s timing: his watch is set to Moscow time.
#MoscowMitch and “MidnightMitch have merged to a new hashtag “MidnightMoscowMitch. Here’s a peppy little version of Midnight In Moscow for you to listen to, music to watch impeachment by. You’re going to need to dance to something, to stay awake all night, so try this.
