Top Dem Senator says he won’t whip votes for Trump’s impeachment

News reports from the Capitol riots have made for an insane two weeks of headlines, but without question, the spotlight is on the upcoming impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, who Democrats claim “incited” the events that led up to the tragic and deadly day in America.

According to The Hill, it’s still unclear how a Senate impeachment trial will ultimately shake out, but Senate Democratic Whip, Dick Durbin (D-IL) broke down and revealed over the weekend that he will not attempt to whip Senate Democrats into voting in favor of impeachment, indicating that business of such seriousness requires each senator to vote their conscience. 

“When it comes to an issue of this gravity and constitutional importance, members really have to follow their own conscience,” Durbin said during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper. “It isn’t a matter of saying, ‘well, the team has to all vote together.'”

Durbin went on to tell Tapper that Democratic leadership in the upper chamber will be interested to know how their members are feeling about the matter.

“We will, of course, try to find out how members feel, but in terms of arm-twisting, when it comes to impeachment, you just don’t do that,” Durbin added.

As The Hill reported over the weekend, it’s still unclear when the Senate will convene for Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment trial, as his departure from the White House on Wednesday complicates matters, given that Congress will then be in uncharted territory, as a president has never faced trial after he or she has left the office.

Republican strategists such as Karl Rove believe that Trump’s chances of being convicted in a Senate trial rest solely on who represents him, adding that if it’s someone like Rudy Giuliani — a prolific pusher of election fraud conspiracy theories — the Senate would be more likely to gain Republican support and convict.

While Trump will already officially be a civilian and out of the White House by the time the Senate begins trial proceedings, thus unable to be removed from office, a successful conviction is still of the utmost importance to Democrats as it would mean he can’t run for re-election in 2024.

This is all political they say it isn’t but it is they just don’t want Mr. Trump to be able to ever run for office again it’s a hanging. And it always has been from the day he first took office and they are going to continue it after he leaves office come on leave him alone.

Absolutely right. The democratic party with their control of House and Senate, is nothing more than a modern day lynch mob, trying to destroy President Trump any way they can, legal or illegal, including an illegal impeachment for crimes he did not do and, in fact, encouraged his supporters NOT to do, ie. President Trump repeatedly told his followers to demonstrate PEACEABLY, without violence. I strongly suspect that the violence in the march, was due to the presence of, and agitation by members of ANTIFA and/or the democratic party.

There should not even be an impeachment vote in the senate because it would be against the constitution to vote for impeachment after a president leaves office. Plus, any Republican who votes to impeach would be signing their own departure from the Senate.

Read your U.S. Constitution. President Trump didn’t commit a crime, and as he’s out of office, no impeachment can be brought. It is a political ploy to prevent him from returning to a federal office.

This “impeachment” is wrong. Impeachment is a process in the House of Representatives that makes up the first major step required to remove a government official from office. By the time a second impeachment is in process, President Trump will not be in office or a government official. So, this whole debacle is simply the majority party having enough votes to make it a “legal” trial. It’s wrong and if the democrats go through with it, it will cause irreparable damage to the nation.

If you are a Democrat impeachment means nothing anyway because even though the talking heads are telling us that if an official is impeached, they can no longer run for office. Why is Alcee Hastings, D-20th District South Florida, allowed to serve in the House of Representatives because he was impeached in1988 and convicted in 1989 for bribery as a federal judge?

The initial impeachment should be thrown out, given that it was contrived by these idiots. An additional impeachment based on simple hearsay would also have no legal standing. There must be a very legitimate reason for why the Democrats are pushing for this all the way to the finish line. Could it be that they are afraid? I think that they think they are going to get away with what they’ve done to all of us. I also know that they will not.

How in the name of truth does anyone think that this so called impeachment, if successful, will stop our President Donald Trump, from running again. God looks for “A Few Good Men “ whom He can put into service to re-establish our country based on His Law. So you may find yourselves, DEMS, fighting against God. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of our Holy God.

With all due respect for my fellow Americans, defeating our enemies foreign and DOMESTIC, will not happen by prayer and talk. We’re up against a violent and vicious enemy that is hellbent on destroying our Republic, our lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren. Sadly, we placed our trust in people that don’t and never did intend to honor their oath to defend our Republic and the American People. They sold their souls in exchange for money and power! Now, we’re confronted with a Communist Chinese takeover and those “bought and paid for Politicians”, are in collusion with them.
We’ve already witnessed how they can accomplish their goals, namely by Voter Fraud in the 2020 elections. Now, we’re supposed to accept the fraudulent results of those elections and let Biden/Harris take over control of our Republic? No, we can’t let that happen! If you’ve been watching and listening our enemies are so bold as to admit Voter Fraud, to steal the 2020 elections. They honestly believe that Americans are too ignorant to resist the fall of our Republic, we need to show them that they’ve made a big mistake!

Here’s a what if. Let me preface by saying President Trump for the last 5+ years has been at least 2 steps ahead of the democrat media propagandist. And the same for those in congress and most branches of what once was a great government. Best…He stood toe to toe with lying pieces of [email protected]#t, ate them up and spat them out.
I for one wouldn’t expect it,…because he has a true love of country, he possesses integrity(which democrats will never have), and respect for the rule of law (unlike the democrats).
All this said…there are or will soon be ~26000 national guard stationed at or near the capital mall. Until Biteme is sworn in, the Guard is still under Trumps command as Commander in Chief. All military personnel swear an oath;
“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”
If I recall correctly.
Could those troops be ordered to an about face to shut down the ascension of biteme?
As mentioned and tried to emphasize, President Trump has Love of Country, rule of law, and integrity. I can’t see this happening. the anarchy, riots, death would sky rocket. But if the shoe were on the other foot, the democrats would jump all over the idea. Very Sad!! As of 12:01ET this country will fall into control by communist disguised as democrats. Take Close Care. Stay Observant of your surroundings. Take notice of major proposed changes.
