VIDEO: Knowing Their Impeachment Circus Is A Joke Some Senate Dems Want To Try Plan B, ‘There Is No Will To…
Some Senate Democrats are trying to figure out how they can squirm their way out of not holding an impeachment trial of President Trump.
Thanks to court documents and reporting from the Washington Post (much to their chagrin) there is overwhelming evidence that President Trump’s January 6th speech did not cause the unrest at the Capitol that day.
Also, except for five rhino Republican Senators the party in is lockstep, they do not support impeaching President Trump who is now a private citizen.
Already knowing that Senate Democrat’s don’t had enough votes to convict President Trump some in the Senate are trying to save face instead of suffering another embarrassing defeat like they did last year.
Democrat Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) are proposing a vote to censure President Trump instead wasting everyones time with what many say is an unconstitutional impeachment trial of a private citizen.
Censure has no force of law unless that person is a member of Congress, the censure would basically mean Congress is mad at you.
However, Senator Kaine feels that a censure would prohibit President Trump from holding office again per his interpretation of Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.
From NBC News:
The notion that a censure could block Trump from holding future federal office is based on how Kaine and his supporters are reading Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which says: “No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same.”
If Tim Kaine is not hot on impeachment that tells you that polling came back and it’s not good for Democrats.
CNN’s Jake Tapper started to break it to his audience that Trump is not going to be convicted. Ryan Nobles told Tapper, that “there’s no will on the Senate leadership” to opt to censure the President Trump. However, Nobles relented that it is more than likely President Trump will not be convicted thanks to the majority of Republican Senators.
