The Republicans in the Senate are finally breaking their combined silences and it is lights out for Nancy Pelosi and her dream to impeach Trump.
True, the House can vote to impeach but according to numerous GOP Senators, they will quickly quash any articles of impeachment in the Senate.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said, “You can’t tell me they’re talking about impeachment when the president is cooperating with them 100 percent to release these things.”
“It’s premature to talk about impeachment,” he added.
“I just can’t imagine a universe in which Democrats are stupid enough to do that,” John Cornyn said.
“I can’t imagine a universe in which that would happen because Nancy Pelosi is simply too shrewd to allow things to get out of control.”
“I think the Democrats have made this such a partisan exercise that I think most of the public has discounted the idea of it, because I think most believe that it’s become sort of a political attack on the president and nothing more,” Rand Paul said.
Senator John Thune (S.D.) warned the Dems:
“It’s a risky strategy on their part. I know they’re under a lot of pressure to do it, but if you’re the leadership over there, you got to think long and hard about what the implications are if it looks like you’re overreaching,” he said.
My response to them is to go hard or go home,” said Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.). “If you want to impeach him, stop talking. Do it. Do it. Go to Amazon, buy a spine and do it. And let’s get after it.”
“I think the public will feel like it’s more harassment,” he accurately predicted.
So why do it? Why rush headlong into a losing cause? One Democrat Senator, Jon Tester of Montana, issued a warning of his own.
“The last time I checked, this body is controlled by Republicans. I’d rather get government to work functionally and hold people accountable.
I’d rather get the Republicans over here to hold Donald Trump accountable on all sorts of stuff, from building a wall to how he treats our allies.”
