McConnell slams Democrats for 'not playing by the rules' - changes the rules himself

During the first day of Donald Trump's impeachment trial, Mitch McConnell calls out the Democrats and suggests they are "not playing by the rules." McConnell also changed the rules at the last second to update the schedule a bit, as per a report on MSN.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at the last minute changed his rules proposal for President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, offering a modified resolution at the start of Tuesday’s trial to make some concessions to Democrats and moderate Republicans.

The changes will ease the frenzied schedule for opening arguments and will accept evidence from the House inquiry. The new version of the rules resolution sticks more closely to the precedent set by Bill Clinton’s 1999 impeachment trial but still allows for a potentially quick conclusion.
