The Constitution has never been tested before with the pressure Democrats are placing on it.
And even some Republicans are putting their country at risk.
These six Senate Republicans betrayed the Constitution to help Trump’s impeachment.
The current impeachment effort was not caused because of the words former President Donald Trump spoke on January 6th.
This impeachment is meant to try and lump all Republicans in together with the rioters who broke the law.
If the Democrats had wanted to censor former President Trump, it would have been the proper legal avenue to express their frustration.
The Constitution is clear about who can be impeached which extends to “the President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States.”
And the Constitution also states that impeachment is supposed to be for criminal offenses of “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanor.”
Trump is now a private citizen without the protection of the presidential office, and if Trump really did commit the crime of incitement to violence he should be tried in a criminal court.
But Trump is clearly innocent of the charge Democrats have laid against him.
Democrats are twisting the law for a political show that they hope to use to associate Republicans with criminals.
The shocking thing is that some Republicans are going along with the Democrats’ agenda.
Six Republicans joined Democrats and voted that the impeachment trial is constitutional on Tuesday night.
The vote was 56-44.
Five Republicans voted against Sen. Rand Paul’s motion to dismiss the impeachment trial against Trump on the basis of it being unconstitutional.
Republican Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy decided to change his vote after the arguments of the House impeachment managers and Trump’s impeachment lawyers.
Cassidy told CNN after the vote that the House impeachment managers had a “very good opening” and made “very good arguments.”
He also said: “The House managers were focused, they were organized … they made a compelling argument. President Trump’s team, they were disorganized, they did everything they could but to talk about the question at hand.”
The Senators who voted for impeachment to continue are:
- Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy
- Maine Sen. Susan Collins
- Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski
- Utah Sen. Mitt Romney
- Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse
- Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey
In an interview on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle, Senator Rand Paul (R., Ky.) warned Friday that one-third of Republican voters could leave if their senators vote to support impeachment.
“The impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion, [and] if Republicans go along with it, it’ll destroy the party,” Paul said during the interview.
“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul continued. “This isn’t about, anymore, the Electoral College, this is about the future of the party.”
There’s no good reason for Republican senators to put their own party at risk in order to help Democrats.
