An idea proposed by Eric J. Scholl in the Medium article “Relief But No Release” [https://ericjscholl.medium.com/relief-but-no-release-9f7c7b4e222a] suggests that Schumer should postpone the trial until “June … or October.” While I am not sure about what the exact timing should be, the Democrats should at least wait until there has been a thorough impeachment INVESTIGATION before bringing the case to trial. Remember, rushing the case to the Senate was one reason the first impeachment of Trump failed. In this second trial, the primary goal should not be to “punish” Trump (which might at some point become convenient for McConnell and the Republicans to “get him out of the way”), but rather to thoroughly explore the constitutional and national security aspects of what happened January 6 and the events leading up to it. A fuller explanation of this impeachment strategy can be found in The War After the Election [https://medium.com/illumination-curated/the-war-after-the-election-545de96aa4ca?sk=627c55d616d9296af3e398f1686493a4].
