The GOP Just Gave The Dems Another Blow

The Republican party is still calling the shots in D.C.

Forty-five Republican senators voted in favor of a motion introduced by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Tuesday to dismiss the impeachment article against former President Donald Trump as unconstitutional.

WATCH:

The point of order, which was defeated 55-45, argued that the Senate does not have the constitutional authority to try a president after he has left office.

The House on Monday delivered to the Senate one article of impeachment against Trump for allegedly “encourag[ing]…imminent lawless action at the Capitol” after a mob breached and vandalized the Capitol on Jan. 6 after his rally.

Among those who voted in favor of Paul’s motion was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who at first reportedly expressed support for Trump’s impeachment to colleagues.

Though the motion was not upheld, it suggests that the Senate will not have the requisite 67-vote supermajority to convict Trump in a second impeachment trial, in which 17 Republicans would have to vote with the Democrats.

The only five Republicans senators who voted to proceed with the trial were Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.

“The Senate just voted on my constitutional point of order,” Paul tweeted shortly after the vote. “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.”

Paul earlier gave a speech on the Senate floor excoriating the second impeachment push against Trump, pointing out that Chief Justice John Roberts does not plan to preside over a second trial because the Constitution requires him to do so only when the president is being tried.

“The Chief Justice’s absence demonstrates that this is not a trial as a president, but of a private citizen,” said Paul. “Therefore I make a point of order, that this proceeding, which would try a private citizen and not a president, a vice president, or civil officer violates the Constitution, and is not in order.”

WATCH:

Paul also blasted the Democrats for continuing to stoke division among Americans, especially when President Joe Biden is now calling for unity. “Hyper-partisan Democrats are about to drag our great country down into the gutter of rancor and vitriol the likes of which has never been seen in our nation’s history. Instead of doing the nation’s work with their new majorities in the House, the Senate, and the executive branch, Democrats are wasting the nation’s time on a partisan vendetta against a man no longer in office.”

“It’s almost as if they have no ability to exist except in opposition to Donald Trump,” Paul added. “Without him as their boogeyman, they might have to legislate and to actually convince Americans that their policy prescriptions are the right ones.”

  1. We are calling for all Democrats to step down you are a fraud. you are not for the people only your selves.

  2. Thank God we have some good people left on Capital Hill… This is where our blessings will come from.. Anyone that voted for Biden is a stupid idiot.. Everyone he is picking for office is a nut job from the Obama era. .Anyone in their right mind knows how that went.. God help us.. Pray for America all you that love her…

  3. My mind and heart tells me, that Donald J. Trump is a private citizen. He finished out his term and flew home on Air Force One, on January 20th, 2021. The riot on January 6th, was a most unfortunate thing. But to continue the bickering may only invite more violence. I think it is unconstitutional to push an impeachment onto a fine President, who helped to find a vaccine. The former President Donald J. Trump should not be impeached because of the actions of others. The President himself is not guilty of any harm or death to anyone at the Capitol. He bravely came out to the crowd and told them to all go home. There was not anything else he could do.

  4. As always socialist can’t keep there anger under control. president trump will go down in history as the only president attempted to be impeached twice .his name will live way on past crazy Nancy, and Schumer. History will say what a waste of time when the country needs out way revenge.
    Thanks socialist you are helping us win in 2024 ,unless of course you cheat again.which will happen again only on state levels.

  5. Where did President TRUMP incite a riotous mob to hurt our US Washington DC and very person there inside and outside, that so untrue

    and the whole Republican Party should know that and if they do not know that then they only chose hateful stupid deception

    and they no longer need to be in our US power

    ❤💥👍CHRISTrump and all his US TRUMPlican Lawmakers successfully US 2020/2021/2024 Reelected Landslide
    Amen & Amen👍💥❤

  6. Impeach ALL democrats (commies) then to gitmo with them for aiding, abetting, sedition, threats to our president, Mr. Trump, as well as stupidity.

  7. Kamala , Maxine, Nancy, AOC, Omar, Tlaib and many others from the Lefty Dems have incited harm to Trump supporters in many forms so I support impeachment on these radical women in Congress . We have no need for them . They can walk in our shoes outside of Congress and say what they wish but as long as we are paying their unearned wage they need to keep their big fat mouth shut! They need to help the American people and tend to business like reducing government, lower taxes, build the rest of the border fence, stop abortion, get the schools open, stop the illegals flowing into our country, re start work on the keystone pipe line, do term limits in Congress, open businesses, break up big tech companies that kill other businesses, and a ton of other things. Biden has failed us and he doesn’t even have a month of his term in.
