On Tuesday, the leftists’ dream of a Trump conviction died after 45 Republican senators ruled that the Pelosi-Schumer impeachment was unconstitutional.
Insert Pelosi weeping in the background.
Credits to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for his gambit of introducing a motion to force a vote regarding the constitutionality of impeaching Trump, who is already a private citizen, and no longer holds public office.
While a 55-45 margin defeated the motion, the rats came out by getting Republicans on record, joining the Democrats in favor of the conviction.
The five Republican Senators are Utah’s Mitt Romney, Nebraska’s Ben Sasse, Maine’s Susan Collins, Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, a swing state with voting irregularities.
Despite his mixed signals, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is Noticeably absent from the list.
It’s also not a coincidence that the five senators regularly have media soapboxes in return for their sniping.
Sen. Paul wrote on Twitter, “This ‘trial’ is dead on arrival in the Senate.
Paul called for a procedural vote for holding a trial, arguing that the Senate shouldn’t address the impeachment article against President Trump filed by the House because he no longer holds public office.
Should the trial push through, Trump would become the first ex-president to face an impeachment trial.
Paul believes that the 45 Republicans vote against the motion proved that any upcoming trial would likely be rendered moot.
“If you voted that it was unconstitutional, how in the world would you ever vote to convict somebody for this?” the Kentucky senator told reporters.
“This vote indicates it’s over. The trial is all over.” He exposed the hypocrisy of the left and the five “Republican” turncoats for having double-standard political violence in his speech. He referred to the horrific 2017 incident when an unstable Bernie Sanders supporter driven to rage by liberal media opened fire on the conservative’s congressional baseball team on a June morning in D.C.
Fortunately, the participants were secured by the police officers who also fired at the shooter. Republican Rep. Steve Scalise was then severely wounded.
Pelosi’s move was again flushed in the drain, as her agenda, along with her allies, only seeks to divide the Americans. A far cry from the president’s call for “unity.”
