Republicans told Donald Trump one truth about impeachment he won’t like one bit
The Senate impeachment trial is set to begin next Tuesday.
Democrats are making their final stand to remove Donald Trump from office.
And Republicans told Donald Trump one truth about impeachment he won’t like one bit.
As the Senate moves toward a trial, President Trump – as well as many of his supporters – insisted the Senate vote to dismiss the phony articles of impeachment
“Many believe that by the Senate giving credence to a trial based on the no evidence, no crime, read the transcripts, ‘no pressure’ Impeachment Hoax, rather than an outright dismissal, it gives the partisan Democrat Witch Hunt credibility that it otherwise does not have. I agree!” the President wrote.
But Missouri Republican Roy Blunt said that would not happen because there were not 51 votes to do so.
The Hill reports:
Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) told reporters on Monday that the Senate Republican caucus doesn’t have the votes to dismiss the articles of impeachment against President Trump who endorsed an “outright dismissal” over the weekend.
“I think our members generally are not interested in a motion to dismiss. … Certainly there aren’t 51 votes for a motion to dismiss,” Blunt, the No. 4 Senate Republican, told reporters after a closed-door leadership meeting.
Republicans have warned for months that they will not dismiss the two articles of impeachment against Trump, predicting a trial will end with votes on either acquitting or convicting him.
But Trump revived talk of trying to dismiss the articles over the weekend, saying the Senate was “giving credence” to the allegations against him by having a trial.
This impeachment trial is a complete waste of time.
The Democrats’ case is laughably weak and the Senate will acquit the President.
The right thing to do would be to not waste anyone’s time by indulging the Democrats’ partisan temper tantrum and dismiss the articles of impeachment so the country can move on to important matters.
