President Donald Trump got a big win when it became clear that the Senate isn’t going to buy what impeachment-hungry House Democrats are selling.
Without real facts, real evidence, and fair due process, the Senate is highly unlikely to vote for Trump’s removal from office, and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) has made it clear that he thinks the Senate will throw cold water on the House Democrats’ impeachment dreams once and for all, Breitbart reports.
“No facts, no evidence”
Numerous Republicans have spoken up about a potential impeachment trial in the Senate. It seems all but settled that House Democrats will send articles of impeachment to the Senate, but if Scott is right, impeachment won’t make it much further.
Scott said, “One thing is crystal clear, what we heard this week from the House was — no facts, no evidence, nothing that would lead to an impeachment.”
“What we heard instead, was contradictory conclusions from Vindman and Williams. We heard inconsistency from Sondland. He says there was a quid pro quo, but when he talked about the president’s own words to him, he said the president said ‘no quid pro quo,'” Scott continued.
“I’m actually more clear that there is no way in the world the Senate … can convict the president … because he seems to be innocent of an impeachable offense.”
The Democrats ran roughshod over House Republicans during the inquiry, and their investigation was unethical in countless ways. However, none of that mattered, given that Democrats control the House.
Impeachment leader Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) will no longer be able to pull all the strings once impeachment reaches the Senate though, and President Trump will finally have a fair chance to defend himself.
Democrats must face consequences
Senate Republicans have maintained that they will not convict Trump without evidence of wrongdoing. Democrats have had months to present such evidence and yet have presented nothing.
Surely Schiff and other Democrats should face some kind of discipline for the role they have played in trying to impeach a sitting president with little proof of high crimes or misdemeanors.
Furthermore, Schiff has lied on numerous occasions throughout the impeachment process. His most notable offense was when he attempted to pass off as fact his own fictionalized interpretation of Trump’s July call with the president of Ukraine.
As of right now, Schiff has gotten away with ongoing dishonesty in his quest to unseat President Trump. Once impeachment is passed to the Senate, Adam Schiff will no longer be able to hide behind closed doors.
