The U.S. Senate just received a stunning recusal notice. House Democrats may have impeached President Trump, but now their partisan plan has been put into serious jeopardy.
Appearing on Fox News, political strategist Karl Rove said, “Every Democrat member of the Senate who is running for president has already called for the president’s impeachment.” This is why they should recuse themselves.
As Rove noted, Senate Democrats running for president are “incapable of serving on the jury” in a fair, unbiased way, because they have a blatant conflict of interest — occupying the White House.
The likelihood of Senators Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren actually recusing themselves is currently slim, but Rove is claiming their “bias” will be further exposed.
Furthermore, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has made it clear that the Senate trial won’t be drawn out and he will be working with the Trump White House every step of the way.
Then you have Speaker Nancy Pelosi refusing to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate — she wants concessions. However, as Rove said, this just “makes them look even more partisan.” Democrats are toast.
