Rules proposed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will prevent senators from having a Coke and a smile while attending the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.


Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) told journalist Matt Laslo that senators will only be allowed to drink water or milk during the trial.

Scott did not explain the reasoning behind the rule.
