Democrats Don’t Have Votes To Convict Trump On Impeachment Trial

Watch out, America. It’s about to get testy.

The Democrats have made the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump about the righteousness of the progressive party and doing the “necessary healing” for our nation. Gimme a break.

But according to Sen. Rand Paul, the impeachment trial is already “dead on arrival:”

We put forward a motion that said that basically, you can’t impeach a private individual. You can impeach a president, but this is why the chief justice didn’t show up. If it was the president, the chief justice shows up. The fact that the chief justice wouldn’t come and refused to come means that this is a private citizen, but the Constitution doesn’t allow for impeachment of a private citizen. So, we put this issue forward, but the most important takeaway from the issue is they don’t have the votes to convict. We have 45 people, 45 Republican senators say that the whole — the whole charade is unconstitutional.

But Paul didn’t stop there.

“It means that impeachment — the trial is dead on arrival,” said Paul “There will be a show, there will be a parade of partisanship, but the Democrats really will not be able to win. They will be able to play a partisan game that they wish to play. But it’s all over. This shows they don’t have the votes to win.”
