Pelosi and the Democrat-controlled House have been promising to impeach Trump for a long time. Since winning back the majority in 2018, they have simply been waiting for the right moment. They are ready to attack this president, hoping to eventually remove him from office. But Senate Republicans have some bad news for them.
It’s been said–by many Democrats–that the only way they can win 2020 is by impeaching Donald Trump. He has scored so many victories for America–in the economy, national security, and more–that there is nobody on the left that can beat him.
Bernie Sanders? Joe Biden? Give me a break. Trump’s economy is humiliating Democrats.
So, their only hope is to get rid of him before the 2020 Election. They were really hoping the Mueller report would have something to damage Trump. Something they could use to impeach him. But even Mueller–who spent two years on the case–cleared Trump’s name of both collusion and obstruction.
Democrats have nothing to use to take out Trump. But, instead of working with the president to help Americans, they still want impeachment. They don’t care about the crisis at the border, our crumbling infrastructure, or the many Americans impacted by recent natural disasters. They just want impeachment.
But the Republican-controlled Senate just put a stop to their impeachment train. For good.
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…
“It would be defeated. That’s why all they want to do is talk about it,” [Sen. John Cornyn] added, suggesting Democrats are more interested in talking about impeaching Trump than actually trying to do that. “They know what the outcome would be.” [Source: Fox News]
That’s right, folks. It takes BOTH houses of Congress to impeach the president. And anti-Trump Democrats just don’t have the votes.
This is what intelligent people (like us) have been saying all along. Democrats need the Senate to go along with their pathetic scheme. It doesn’t matter if the House is finally able to pass articles of impeachment. It will go nowhere in the Senate–because Republicans enjoy a majority.
It takes a whopping 67 votes in the Senate to take down Trump. Republicans have 53 seats. That means Democrats would need 23 Republicans to vote against their own leader. That aint going to happen, folks.
It’s really amazing to think that, for months, Democrats have been vowing impeachment. They have been promising their obviously braindead base that–if they got back the House–they would take out Trump. Maybe even convict him and send him to jail.
But we always knew Trump never did anything wrong. There is no reason they can impeach him. Even still, they push for impeachment, claiming imaginary crimes this president has committed.
Even then, it’s all a pipe dream. Democrats can’t get enough supporters in the Senate to go along with their insane plan. Mitch McConnell and the rest of the GOP will strike it down so fast, it will make their heads spin.
Perhaps, if the Democrats were smart, they’d actually work with President Trump to get things done. Tornadoes just swept through the Midwest. That needs some attention. We need an infrastructure package to repair America’s aging roads and bridges. Then there’s that pesky Southern border that needs securing.
All of this could happen, if Democrats were grown-up enough to do the right thing. But they’re not. They are petty children who still can’t get over the 2016 Election.
Makes you wonder why they even still have jobs.
