How Mitch McConnell Delivered Acquittal for Trump

  How Mitch McConnell Delivered Acquittal for Trump On a Tuesday afternoon a week into President Trump’s impeachment trial, Senator Mitch McConnell could see his carefully laid plan to deliver a swift acquittal veering off the rails. An explosive report detailing how John R. Bolton, the former national security adviser, had confirmed a central allegation against Mr. Trump had roiled the Capitol and upended his push to block new witnesses, and if Mr. McConnell did not corral restive Republicans into submission, the trial could be blown wide open.

"She is a keen strategist who always thinks several steps ahead. She has not just been one of my own closest advisers, but a key resource to our entire majority and a central part of its many accomplishments."

After impeachment: Congress adrift, oversight uncertain

  After impeachment: Congress adrift, oversight uncertain WASHINGTON (AP) — Inside the Capitol, it’s as if the impeachment of President Donald Trump never happened. One week after the historic undertaking shuttered to a close, Congress is feverishly back at work emboldened but also arguably diminished by the outcome. Senate Republicans are flexing their new status as Trump’s unshakable allies, hitching their election pursuits to his and looking the other away as the president seems to dole out favoritism for friends and payback for critics with apparent impunity.

In the Senate, both the majority and minority parties elect a secretary. As secretary for the majority, Dove managed the Republican Cloakroom, facilitated communication between the two leaders, worked out the floor schedule, provided guidance to GOP senators and more.

"Senators and staff on both sides of the aisle will miss Laura a lot and I will be foremost among them," McConnell added.

Dove began her career in the Senate as a page and then worked in the Republican Cloakroom as an assistant under Senate Republican Leader Bob Dole (Kan.).

Robert Duncan, the assistant Republican secretary, will succeed Dove as the next secretary for the majority.
