Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to have the Senate quickly reconvene to vote on the impeachment resolution against President Trump, should it pass the House of Representatives in the next couple of days. Sen. Schumer said a 2004 law allows the majority and minority leaders, by themselves, to agree to reconvene the Senate in an emergency situation, rather than by having to reach a unanimous consent agreement among all senators, which Senator McConnell said was required. Senator Schumer also called on the FBI and TSA to add individuals to the no-fly list who participated in the attack on the U.S. Capitol the previous week. He condemned President Trump for his comments earlier in the day in which he assumed no responsibility for his part in inciting the riot and instead blamed others. The news conference held on the streets of New York City was temporarily interrupted by a protester. close
