GOP Senators band together to thwart Pelosi and Schumer’s impeachment push

In a vote of 45-55 on an objection to the impending impeachment trial, GOP Senators sent a strong message to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) that Trump is unlikely to be convicted in an impeachment trial.

All but five of the Republican senators objected to the trial as unconstitutional. A two-thirds Senate majority is needed to convict the president — all but guaranteeing that Pelosi’s impeachment push will be a waste of time. 

Surprisingly, former Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) — after signaling that he would welcome an impeachment trial — joined 44 other Republican senators voting against the unconstitutional impeachment. He confirmed that he would listen to the evidence presented at the trial scheduled to begin on February 8th.

Pelosi sent the single article of impeachment to the Senate on Monday. The article charges that President Trump incited insurrection on January 6th, 2021.

Republicans and Constitutional scholars are objecting because impeachment is meant to remove an official from office. President Trump is now a private citizen making removal impossible.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is will not be presiding over the trial because his presence is only required when a president is being impeached. Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), the president pro tempore of the Senate, will preside instead of Roberts.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) forced the vote on the objection on Tuesday arguing that the impeachment trial is unconstitutional. The objection failed to win, but senators’ votes are now entered into the Congressional record. Rand declared the impeachment trial as DOA and explained his strategy in a tweet:

The Senate just voted on my constitutional point of order. 45 Senators agreed that this sham of a ‘trial’ is unconstitutional. That is more than will be needed to acquit and to eventually end this partisan impeachment process. This ‘trial’ is dead on arrival in the Senate.

GOP Sen. Ron Johnson, one of eleven senators that objected to the electoral votes on January 6th in the joint session of Congress to certify the electoral votes, pointed out the double bind the Democrats created for themselves with impeachment because of their vindictiveness. He tweeted:

Democrats can’t have it both ways: an unconstitutional impeachment trial & Senate confirmation of the Biden admin’s national security team. They need to choose between being vindictive or staffing the administration to keep the nation safe. What will it be: revenge or security?”

The voters in the States that the five GOP traitors are from should dump them. The are not Republicans. They have tried to SCREW the President of ALL Americans every chance they could, even now that he is out of office
He was not a Republican President. Like him or not, Donald Trump tried to represent ALL 330,000,000 legal
Americans. He LOVES his country. I can not say the same to the pretenders now in office Comrads HARRIS/biden +SQUAD G-d bless AMERICA

With due respect to you, Eugene, I don’t call the “demonstration on 6 Jan. an “insurrection”. An insurrection is a rebellion against an established governing body, with the idea of seizing property and depriving the established governing body of use of that property. The Trump group was not interested in seizing government property. I’m certain (as news broadcasts have stated) that there were Antifa goons involved in the whole violence episode. Trump supporters were NOT trying to destroy property. In fact, from what I’ve read, the DC police and Secret Service opened doors for the Trump supporters to enter the capital. Only the Antifa “goons” or “hoodlums” went with the idea of destroying property and hurting the officials.

What a waste of time and money! When the country really needs politicians to do positive things they spend their time and resources on a continuing vendetta that has been going on for over four years! When will this charade get over and congress get back to work doing what they were elected to do?

Please do not tell me that the courts found the last election to be fraud free, there has not yet been one single court that has heard a single real word of testimony, therefore no decision has ever been made nor has any ruling ever been made by ANY COURT INCLUDING THE SUPREME COURT!!!!!!!!

If this country is to survive as a free nation the election process must be overhauled and cleaned up!

WHY ! Is the left so afraid of Trump that they want to smear him as much as possible and to prevent him from running again in 2024 ? In a democracy with legal voting a person as corrupt, bum, scumbag , etc as the left is calling him would get no votes. Correct ? The left must be so afraid that the next 4 years will be the worst in US history. Correct ? If the left truly believes they will improve everything they would have nothing to fear from the opposition. Correct ?

AOC at it again saying GOP is filled with white supremacy. This is racist! When they say people of color, they leave out white. Last time I checked and I am a painter, white is a color. We are all people of color. So by gum when you say people of color, include white. The Dems just cannot accept others by their character because guess what? They do not get discernment from God and it drives them crazy! Wisdom begins with revering our great God and one thing totally apparent is their LACK of wisdom, that drives them crazy as well. It is available for them , the gift of grace has been bought and paid for by Jesus Christ, but it must be accepted.

This is nothing but hatred and envy. First they steal the election from Trump and then try to impeach him after he leaves office. Why those goof balls got back in office is beyond me. Even the democrats are getting riled up with Biden .He does not have the sense of a Billy goat. As soon as his rump hit his desk chair he started signing away the things Trump started to make America great. I guess Trump will have it all to do over when he takes office in 2004.

Nancy Pelosi is the one who needs be impeached. She has done nothing but cause chaos and further division of the Democratics and Republicans all in her vendetta against Trump.

When she sit there on national television and tore up Trump’s speech on the state of the union address she should have been impeached. That caused such an outrage among the American people that will not soon be forgotten. It was outrageous and dispictible!

She alone has caused so much hate between the parties that I would not be surprised at all to see another civil war occur.

Because of this woman, I am afraid to even voice my opinions or even publicly support a Republican candidate due to fear from the far left.

It is a sad time in our country indeed.

The truth is that you can’t post a yard sign or have a supportive bumper sticker for a conservative of any kind without fear of waking to your house being set afire or your car vandalized…or worse. I am ashamed to have Pelosi representing the state I grew up in, and the party my grandfather served as a Nevada State Senator…she represents the worst of all monolithic oligarchies and their intolerance for dissent.

Biden should definitely be impeached immediately! Every “executive order” that idiot has signed has damaged our country, destroyed our national security, destroyed people’s lives, and ruined our country’s standing in the world. Harris should be impeached because of her support for antifa and black lives matter rioters and looters, and telling them to continue their actions. Plus she is not eligible for vp – neither of her parents are Americans.

Piglosi and Schumer should be impeached because of the damage their actions have done to our country. Schumer should have been arrested because of his threats to 2 Supreme Court justices.

They better start FEARING God rather than a man that can do anything right now. They should FEAR the judgment that is coming upon their heads. AND IT IS COMING SOONER THAN THEY THINK!

She is still trying to avenge Hilarity Clintoon’s defeat.
She is scared that Trump could reenter politics and win again.

While Trump has had his problems, at least some of his own making.

There should be laws that hold politicians criminally responsible for their words and actions whether they are in the halls of Congress or not. Demented fools like Pelosi, Schumer & Schiff should not be able to tell absolute lies without immediate consequences. We the people want our country back! We want politicians that represent us & our needs, not the selfish needs of politicians, big tech, big pharma, & the corporate elite. We want elections that are fair& honest & fraud free. We want politicians that keep their campaign promises ( like Trump) not change them after one day in office (like Biden). I think most politicians forget that we pay their salaries with our tax money. They work for us. We are their boss!
