The news is spreading nationwide about an impeachment trial shocker. It just went down in the Senate with 21 Republicans — they have taken a stand. Democrats are furious.
“Just counted 21 empty seats on the GOP side of the Senate, 2 on the Dem side, a couple hours into Schiff’s presentation,” reported Michael McAuliff, a reporter for New York Daily News.
“Some are just stretching their legs, but most are not in the chamber,” he continued. “Some of them have been out of there for a while.” McAuliff documented the situation via his Twitter account.
According to McAuliff, the anti-Trump congressman from California even opened his remarks in stunning fashion by chastising Senate Republicans for refusing to sit quietly.
“It doesn’t hurt that the morning starts out every day with the sergeant at arms warning you that if you don’t you will be imprisoned,” Schiff said to Chief Justice John Roberts on how it works in the House.
Someone should tell Shifty Schiff that this is the Senate. The GOP majority doesn’t respect him and they have no reason to give him any attention. The impeachment push has been a scam from the beginning.
