Impeachment theatrics over; McConnell back to business

From Senate Cloakroom Twitter timeline yesterday:

“(1/2): “The Senate having tried Donald John Trump, President of the United States, upon two Articles of Impeachment exhibited against him by the House of Representatives, and two-thirds of the Senators present not having found him guilty of the charges contained therein:…”

(2/2): “…it is, therefore, ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be, and he is hereby, acquitted of the charges in said articles.”

Less than ten minutes later: “The Senate remains in session.”

And back to business:

Leader McConnell has filed cloture on Executive Calendar #562 Andrew Lynn Brasher to be U.S. Circuit Judge for the Eleventh Circuit.

Leader McConnell has filed cloture on Executive Calendar #563 Joshua M. Kindred to be U.S. District Judge for the District of Alaska.

Leader McConnell has filed cloture on Executive Calendar #565 Matthew Thomas Schelp to be U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri.

Leader McConnell has filed cloture on Executive Calendar #461 John Fitzgerald Kness to be U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Illinois.

Leader McConnell has filed cloture on Executive Calendar #535 Philip M. Halpern to be U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of New York.

Vote Scheduled: At 5:30 pm on Monday, February 10th, the Senate will proceed to a vote on the motion to invoke cloture on Executive Calendar #562 Andrew Lynn Brasher to be U.S. Circuit Judge for the Eleventh Circuit.
