Democrats are raking in campaign donations from the dwindling numbers of anti-Trump voters on the promise of holding an impeachment vote against him despite there being no evidence of any real crime that normally would necessitate said vote—unless leading the strongest U.S. economy in recent memory is now a crime in the eyes of the increasingly unhinged Democrat party.
This week Senate Republicans are warning those far left Democrats that such a vote will be quickly crushed.
Via Fox News:
Senate Republicans are vowing to crush the impeachment effort if the Democrat-controlled House passes articles of impeachment of President Trump.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is expected to ensure that the measure, which has caused some friction even among Democrats, would be over before it could gain traction.
Democrats in the Senate will remain largely powerless as although McConnell will have to act on the impeachment articles, it also requires 67 votes – a two-thirds majority – to convict the president.
“I think it would be disposed of very quickly,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham told The Hill on the viability of the impeachment process. “If it’s based on the Mueller report, or anything like that, it would be quickly disposed of.”
Other Republicans echoed Graham’s comment. Texas Sen. John Cornyn told the outlet that the impeachment articles passed by the House would lead to “nothing.”
“It would be defeated. That’s why all they want to do is talk about it,” he added, suggesting Democrats are more interested in talking about impeaching Trump than actually trying to do that. “They know what the outcome would be.”
Senate Republicans also say an impeachment trial of Trump would also get just the bare minimum time on the floor.
“Why on earth would we give a platform to something that I judge as a purely political exercise?” Sen. Thom Tillis told The Hill.
“We have to perform our constitutional duty, but if people think that we’re going to try and create a theater that could give you the perception that this is a matter that rises to the level of Watergate, that’s nonsense.”
