The Senate is about to stage another impeachment trial for Donald Trump.
It’s about to backfire big time on Democrats.
And Trey Gowdy revealed this reality about impeachment that is bad news for Joe Biden.
One of the looming questions hanging over the Senate’s impeachment trial of Donald Trump is how long it will last.
Previous impeachment trials lasted weeks.
But in this trial the outcome is already known.
Forty-five Republican senators voted to dismiss the article of impeachment on the grounds it is unconstitutional due to the fact that Donald Trump is out of office.
That vote showed Democrats were far short of the 67 votes necessary to convict Trump so the trial struck many fair-minded Americans as a waste of time.
The length of the trial could depend on if Democrats call witnesses.
Rioters such as the “QAnon Shaman,” the shirtless man in the Viking helmet that became the public face of the Capitol riot, offered to testify against Donald Trump.
Trey Gowdy hosted the 7PM show on Fox News and his first guest was Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham.
Graham used Gowdy’s show to deliver a message that if Democrats wanted to call witnesses to testify against Donald Trump then Graham and other Republicans would gun up the works of the Senate for weeks and months by calling witnesses of their own.
“If the House managers want to use this as a political commercial against Donald Trump and Republicans, and they want to call witnesses now… this thing could go for weeks or months and that would be bad for the country. To my Democratic colleagues, if you vote to call one witness, none were called in the House, get ready for a long trial… If you open up that can of worms, we’ll want the FBI to come in and tell us how people actually pre-planned these attacks and what happened with the security footprint at the Capitol. You open up Pandora’s box if you call one witness, I hope we don’t call any,” Graham told Gowdy.
When the Senate conducts an impeachment trial it cannot conduct any other business.
Democrats pushing ahead with a lengthy impeachment trial guarantees Joe Biden’s agenda stalls out inside his first 100 days when presidents have their most political capital.
This current impeachment is petty, it’s partisan and it’s vindictive.
Democrats thought voters would deliver a historic rebuke to Donald Trump.
But when the 2020 election was far closer than the polls predicted and the Republicans gained 15 seats in the House of Representatives, Democrats began to panic.
When the voters did not exile Donald Trump and Trumpism from American politics, Democrats turned to impeachment to ban Trump from ever holding office again and excommunicate him from public life.
