Democrats can and will continue to put on their impeachment show, but the House is about as far as this circus is going to go.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) cast his vote of confidence on Monday, saying that the Senate is very unlikely to remove President Donald Trump from office, regardless of what happens in the House.
It stops here
So far, we have yet to hear a solid shred of evidence that would lead to a legitimate impeachment of Trump. At this point, there is little doubt Democrats in the House will send articles of impeachment to the Senate, but that is where it is going to stop.
Senator McConnell stated, “It looks to me like the House is determined to impeach the president. I can’t imagine a scenario under which President Trump would be removed from office with 67 votes in the Senate.”
“So, I don’t know how long senators will want to continue the trial, but I’m pretty confident at the end impeachment will not lead to ouster,” he added.
Wasting time and money
We are now in the second week of the public impeachment hearings. During the first week, the star witnesses for the House Democrats crashed and burned.
Not only that, but Rep. Adam Schiff (R-CA) exposed himself as a fraud several times by blocking Republicans from pursuing their desired lines of questioning.
In other words, anything that Schiff did not have complete control over was immediately stopped in its tracks.
On Tuesday, Schiff did it again when he interfered with Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) time for questioning witnesses. The interruption was so blatant that even members of the media were grumbling about it.
The star witness this week for Democrats is going to be Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, but his testimony cannot be trusted.
He has completely flipped from prior testimony out of fear of being indicted for lying because his testimony did not match up with that of others questioned in the impeachment proceedings thus ar.
Taxpayers are going to get hit with a tab of millions for this partisan circus, and McConnell wants to do what he can to stop the flow of wasted time and money.
