Shampeachment: 45 Republicans Vote That Trump Impeachment Is Unconstitutional

This is dead on arrival

Forty-five Republicans vote against proceeding with Senate impeachment trial

Move OnSenators were sworn in as jurors to President Trump’s impeachment trial Tuesday as the Senate voted 55-45 to end debate on Sen. Rand Paul’s point of order arguing that the impeachment trial is unconstitutional now that Trump is out of office.

Five GOP senators voted not to dismiss the impeachment trial of President Trump: Susan Collins, Maine, Lisa Murkowski, Alaska, Ben Sasse, Neb., and Pat Toomey, Pa., and Mitt Romney, Utah. They voted with all 50 Democrat senators to table the point of order.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has indicated he has an open mind on whether Trump should be convicted, voted against ending debate.

Paul, R-Ky., had told reporters earlier that he would make a point of order alleging that the trial is contrary to the Constitution — an argument that multiple Republican senators have made. That forced a vote on the point of order, requiring senators to go on the record about whether they believe the trial is constitutional.

It would be nice to say “we know who to primary”, but, those 5 RINOs with Trump Derangement Syndrome are very popular in their home states. Regardless, there aren’t enough votes to convict

Tuesday, in an appearance on FNC’s “Fox News Primetime,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reacted to the 55-45 vote in the U.S. Senate earlier in the day, which paved the way for former President Donald Trump’s impeachment to proceed on a constitutional basis.

Paul insisted the process was still unconstitutional and pointed out that Chief Justice John Roberts was a no-show. He said that given there were 45 votes against proceeding showed that impeachment was “dead on arrival.”

“We put forward a motion that said that basically, you can’t impeach a private individual. You can impeach a president, but this is why the chief justice didn’t show up. If it was the president, the chief justice shows up. The fact that the chief justice wouldn’t come and refused to come means that this is a private citizen, but the Constitution doesn’t allow for impeachment of a private citizen. So, we put this issue forward, but the most important takeaway from the issue is they don’t have the votes to convict. We have 45 people, 45 Republican senators say that the whole — the whole charade is unconstitutional.

Democrats had to have known that there was zero possibility that they would get to the 67 votes needed to convict. So, what’s the point? Will they try to bring in other evidence? Demand stuff like Trump’s taxes? What’s the point of this quixotic quest? What if Team Trump introduces evidence that is embarrassing to Democrats? Heck, what if they offer the mythical evidence of election fraud?

(Fox News) On Tuesday night, during an appearance on “FOX News Primetime” with Maria Bartiromo,” Paul addressed what he saw as a double standard by Democrats.

“One of Bernie Sanders’ supporters came to the ballfield, nearly killed Steve Scalise … but nobody talked about impeaching Bernie Sanders. Maxine Waters has said, ‘Get up in their face’ — so has Cory Booker — ‘Become a mob, we want you to mob them at restaurants and cause mayhem.’ That sounds like an incitement to violence but nobody’s talking about impeaching Maxine Waters, nobody’s talking about impeaching Bernie Sanders or Cory Booker for saying ‘Get up in their face.’

That article goes into more detail on what Rand was saying. Remember, leftists surrounded him and his wife, threatened them. Booker and Waters should be impeached for that, and, that would be constitutional.

Really, those 45 Republicans, along with Trump and his defense team, should just refuse to play. Don’t show. Maybe have a golf outing for everyone or something.

    The US President sent a violent mob of thousands to the in-session Senate to stop the certification vote. They were screaming “Hang Mike Pence!”. Senate GOPhers excuse that act based on a technicality of timing.

    If Trump had incited this attack a year ago, would you change your position? How else would you investigate this?

    GOPhers are terrified of the trump mob, not just their vote, not just the calls for more reactionary primary opponents but also for their demonstrated violence. Some Republicans have said they fear for the safety of their families.

      It’s only been a week!

      … Biden having trouble with the transition from partisan candidate to president. You might remember his promise to work for all Americans, no matter how they voted, but he’s already forgotten it. His dozens of executive orders and pronouncements show he’s working only for left-wing Dems.

      The Chief justice of the Supreme Court refuses to sit in on this Charade as it is unconstitutional and if it ever reaches the court it will lose at least 6-3 if not 9-0.

      When the Chief Justice of the Supreme court refuses to sit for the proceeding you know it is a sham.

      Remember the left won power but they do not want to pass anything. So they are going to force the senate to waste time on debate about Trump instead of passing any of Biden’s legislation.

      Its what both parties do. Trump had all 3 branches and the government passed his tax cut and that was about it. Hell they would not even give him money for a border wall, when they could have funded the entire thing overnight.

      Drama Queen Alert! “The US President sent a violent mob,,,,”. And the words used to send that “mob” were…what? These clowns can’t answer that question, of course, because they don’t exist. But nice try, anyway, J

    Instead of admitting an old and mentally degenerating old man was scammed in to office, incapable at the job, anti-Trumpers will howl about what they think he incited (amidst other “sins”) while denying their new loser president.
