Trump impeachment trial proceeding at and Entian pace

The Trump impeachment trial - supposedly an expedited version of the long, drawn-out first impeachment trial of a year ago - has begun in Washington DC.

But all they've succeeded in achieving so far is to agree that the trial can in fact go ahead.

It put me in mind of a scene in The Lord of the Rings, when the Ents call a special high-level meeting and, after hours and hours of debate, they finally manage to agree that the two Hobbits are in fact Hobbits. Merry and Pippin can't believe that, after all that time, the main matter that brought the Ents together has not even been touched on.
