Breaking: What McConnell Plans To Do When Impeachment Gets To Senate

(Liberty Bell) – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will be moving to acquit President Donald Trump if the House of Representatives impeaches him rather than simply dismiss the charges with a motion.

According to two GOP Senators who spoke to CNN, the Republicans would like to vote on acquittal to clear POTUS of all charges levied against him by the House Democrats, not simply a motion to have the case dismissed.

Republicans want to have a vote on acquittal — to clear the President of the charges against him — not simply rely on a 51-vote threshold procedural motion to dismiss the hotly disputed case.

The Constitution mandates 67 votes are required to convict the President and remove him from office, a barrier widely considered too high to be reached in this case.

One vote McConnell can’t rely on is that of Vice President Mike Pence, who has “no role in impeachment,” according to a GOP leadership aide, despite being president of the Senate with the mandate to break ties.

One of the senators, speaking anonymously, said McConnell would not call a vote on a motion to proceed to the impeachment articles unless he knew he had the 51 votes needed to end the trial, which would then set up a final vote on the articles themselves. On that final vote, 67 votes would be needed to convict Trump and remove him from office.

On Tuesday, House Democrats announced they will bring two articles of impeachment against President Trump: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee began to mark up articles of impeachment Wednesday evening and on Thursday, debated the articles all day and well into the evening.

A copy of the Articles of Impeachment, which comes in at 9 pages, was released to the public.

Of course the impeachment is just going on die in the Senate.

This has never been a full-sail impeachment effort, this has always been a phony political stunt to try to damage Trump’s chances in 2020, as if that could even happen.

The Democrats launched impeachment against Trump after a Brennan CIA plant-turned-whistleblower filed a complaint based on third-hand knowledge alleging Trump threatened to withhold military aid from Ukraine unless they investigated the Biden crime family.

The entire hoax unraveled and Speaker Pelosi walked her caucus off the cliff only to watch as the Senate acquits Trump and clears him of all charges.

  1. Go ahead and call me a negative, fatalistic, doubting Thomas, but I don’t trust that RINO, McConnell any farther than I could sling that P.O.S. with the same POO he’s a-shovelin’!!!

  2. The stupid Democrats say they will try to impeach Trump when he wins in 2020. They are not going to be able to impeach, because they will not control the House, they will lose the majority because of their stupidity

  3. What I see with McConnell cutting the trial out is that Trump will not get to question people and bring out the leftist deep state’s illegal activities.
    All this will do is cover for the left’s illegal activities AND leave Trump open to being hounded about the things he has been accused of.
    It also gives the left the ability to claim that the acquittal is only partisan politics.
    All McConnell is doing is covering for the left and throwing Trump under the bus.

  4. Thank you Nancy Pelosi for confirming that DEMOCRAPS have been trying to get Trump impeached even before he took office. You are no different than your other California representative Maxine Waters….A kook of the first order.

  6. Charge Pelosi and her Democrats with treason, and deal with them accordingly. We are supporting them with taxpayers money, to do nothing but destroy us and our nation. Think of the money that can be used to balance the nations budget if we set term limits for Congress, and pay them a fair wage for services rendered. Without the opportunity to get rich by being elected to Congress, criminals would no longer be attracted to run for office. The would also be elected for their quality of leadership, rather than how much money they could spend on campaigns. Also, we could call the act of paying an ex congressman, or congresswoman to lobby for corporations, an act of criminal bribery. That would stop even more corruption.

    • Term limits are already enshrined in our Constitution. They are called elections and are held on a regular basis. The REAL problem is most citizens can’t be bothered to get off of their collective fat azzes to bother to REGISTER to vote, much less cast a ballot. ‘We have met the enemy and he is us’ – Pogo.

  7. The dems are the ones interfering with the 2020 election. They are cry babies. Just suck it up. Take your bats and balls from the play ground and go home. You lost. The word is looser. The democrat party is gone

  8. I want to see if we can a danger that has come forth that nobody sees that a lot of states I feel are democrat this danger is known as (CANNABIS) Mary jane, pot, if any one notice most states the allows it now are democrat its a drug that heips you tow the line, its bad enough we don’t need this.

  9. seem like you folks have gotten the picture of the (demoncrats) excuse the words buts that how see them ever since I read about the civil war and the (CARPET BAGGERS) going south in order to enrich themselves at the expense of people who were not well educated and at the mercy of corrupt people they follow in those footsteps today the (Demoncrats) GOD help us all if we don’t stop them now. with President Trump we will do it, because the swamp reared their heads and exposed themselves.

  10. I think it’s hilarious that one of the two charges they could pull out of their backsides is “Obstruction of Congress”. The Dems have been doing nothing but attempting to obstruct the POTUS in every effort to make our country great again (to no avail !!!) from the first day he was elected. They should all be lined up and shot for High Treason !!

    • I SECOND THAT. OR HOW ABOUT THE ELECTRIC CHAIR? WE HAVE ONE AT ANGOLA HERE IN LOUISIANA COLLECTING DUST. IF WE DO THIS THEY WILL THINK TWICE BEFORE TRYING IT AGAIN.

    • Obama and holder obstructed congress everyday and even used executive privelege that Trump uses and gets impeached for it. These democrats are disgusting and can’t except defeat. They have lied over and over to the American starting with the Russia lies and continuing now. Iran owned odumma, Urkrain gave to Hillary campaign and so did Russia, Biden is on tape saying he got the Urkain prosecutor fired for investigating his son and also held up aid until his son got on the board of there companies but its Trumps fault. These liberals are to stupid to know the facts and listen to them. The IG report tells how Odumma and his administration politized the FBI, DOJ and CIA to spy on citizins and lied to the courts but the liberals see nothing wrong with that crap. the democrats need voted out of office in 2020

    • America needs to wake up. The democrats are going by, what I call, playground rules. They are making up the rules as they go to fit their leftist political agenda. If they, the dem’s, can do this to a sitting POTUS they can and will do it to anyone that doesn’t fit into their warped political points of view. I believe the far left views of single payer health care is just one step closer to their goal of implementing socialism. Look at socialist countries around the world. Many of the have gone bankrupt trying to pay for all the hand out programs, and have come to their senses. Thusly, modifying their laws and mind sent to get out of the wir self made mess. Sadly, there are those countries that went the other way and socialism lead to communism.
      The dem’s fail to realize that should communism ever take the place of or current political system they will loose all the power they are so desperately try to gain.

  11. Join the Convention of States (COS) so we can add term limits for members of Congress & Senate. Also add term limits for Federal Judges. I think RBG is a DISGRACE to civilized human beings. She is responsible for the death of at least 60 million babies. I hope President Trump gets the opportunity to replace her. That act alone should get him the Nobel Peace Prize.

    • “Term Limits” would require a Democrat president’s signature (changing the interpretation of our Constitution was just demonstrated by the Democrat-led House CommitteeS (instead of the proper committee) to “gin up” their lies (by using the NAZI Goebbels’ frequent-repetition-of-the-bigger-lie-will-be-believed)

  12. what a frigging idiot you are. You must be drunk and fell off a turnip waggon, , you must be uneducated fool. get a real life man!!

  13. Once again, the Democrats have produced a document that simply tells a story (a piece of fiction). The impeachment document has no footnotes, citations, or quotes from any witness, or piece of evidence. It’s what we see Democrats and other corrupt people do over and over. They make endless accusations that are baseless and contrary to the facts that are known.

  14. What is wrong with Mitch? Evidence is there. Just because he is a republican. Dear God intervene!!!!! There is no justice. Who cares if you are a democrat or republican, Trump done wrong!!!

    • You are so right, McConnell and Barr are aiding and abetting criminal actions by trump. If trump gets a second term, this Country will end up under Putin. The evidence is clear, trump is a criminal and an embarrassment to all who love this Country and a joy to extremists, the 1%, and cartels.

    • Jack where’s the proof? Tony “The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming…” keep listening to those voices in your head buddy

    • Tony Barreda: Thank you for your practical demonstration of National Socialist (NAZI) Goebbels’ “to repeat a bigger lie often enough will lead to its belief”

  15. This is one of the biggest piles of vagary and crap I have ever seen come out of Washington! In regards to this issue the only thing President Trump is guilty of is not kowtowing and acquiescing to the demands and desires of the democrats which is exactly what we need from a president!! Four more years!!!!!!

  16. What a pack of hacks that have never done a job, never done anything but play politics. How many of them could be arrested sedition? We should have a tribunal and charge them all. We are now living in a third world country where no one will ever obtain justice. How long before bread lines, eating zoo animals and random purging by the socialists (communists without a gun using other peoples money)

    • This pack of hyenas that are trying to remove the President deserve to be impeached – removed from office, for that matter, from the entire territory that is this great United States of America. Their hypocrisy, obvious pandering to the lowest common denominator is un paralleled…unfortunately, they’re already planning to keep this up if defeated in 2020 – which most believe will happen Rats belong in the sewer, esp. these Demorats…

    • I TOTALLY AGREE!! PRESIDENT TRUMP NEEDS TO GATHER THE MASSES,THOSE IN THE “HARLELY” CLUB MENTIONED THAT THEY WOULD ARRIVE IF AN IMPEACHMENT VOTE WAS EVER VOTED INTO ACTION AGAINS PRESIDENT! How ABOUT “ROLLING THUNDER?” AND MANY OTHER “CHRISTIAN
      HARLEY” GROUP HAS GOT TO SHOW UP IN SUPPORT OF OUR PRESIDENT.

  17. If you impeach them now then we won’t have to take this crap again after the election next year. They have already said they will try again.

  18. Ok idiots you voted to impeach.acquit in the senate then get after the ones who are really guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors

    • So True Ronald Impeach every single Treacherous Democrat in Congress as it has Never been more Warranted in the History of the Nation!!!!

    • I agree completely with spktruth!!!! Dems are trying to destroy this nation while Trump is trying to help all Americans achieve. Biden was laundering Am. taxpayers money for his own purposes when he got a prosecutor fired and set his son up for a cushy job. He should be in jail….as should McCabe, Page, Hilary, and many others. They are the ones who interfered in the 2016 election.

    • Mr. Olson: Did you even read the articles posted above. It claims that President Trump was trying to affect the outcome of the 2020 elections! (See lines 7-11). How or why would President Trump even know if Joe Biden is going to be his opponent?
      The whole dog and pony show so far has been the biggest waste of time and money. There has been NO high crime or misdemeanor let alone a violation of any common law. I hope the failure of the Democrats only increases motivation of middle of the road undecided voters in 2020 to know what this country needs and to vote Republican all the way.

  19. Past time for all Republicans to file charges against the Democratic part with the charges of HIGH CRIMES OF TREASON.
    1. Failure to comply with the LAW.
    2. Failure to comply with the Constitution.
    3. Backing Anti-American Terrorist org.
    4. Dyeing a Citizen (President Trump) his Constitutional Rights.
    5. Democrats contacting foreign countries to under mind the President.
    6. Democrats being paid by foreign countries for votes.
    7. Democrats FAILURE to comply with the Constitution.
    8. Democrats FALIURE to comply with their oath of office which state under article 5 USC code 331 states as follows:
    An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services, shall take the following oath: “I, their full and complete names, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
    9. This Oath under the democrats HAS BEEN BROKEN/DISGARDED/TRASHED, WILLINGLY BY THE DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST PIG IN CONGRESS.

    • I am so sorry but you triggered me. You ott to be ashamed of yourself, identify a truly delicious food source with the despicable, lower than a sea slugs belly, persons who declare they are fighting to preserve the Constitution. But only want a global government.

    • Trust me, the media is going to get more than slammed for the articles of treason… it is going to completely devastate the elite but-wipes, once and for all…. their only way out, is to try to start a civil war…. what a joke…
      they wouldn’t last the first week, and start crying, and poopin’ their britches!!!!

  20. Dumba** Democrats are in desperation to get DJT out of office. The only electorate who are for impeachment are the ones who don’t like him. Whether it is legal or not does not enter into the reasoning. The Dems have made up a false narrative to get him out because they know they cannot beat him at the ballot box. The UK vote yesterday may be an omen for next year’s election.

  21. Aquit in one day, next day bring charges against every lyin snake who tried to stage a coup! Need to make people pay for trying to destroy our constitutional republic.

  22. While I agree with these comments generally, reading them was painful, not the opinions expressed, but the grammar. Are English and Grammar even taught in schools anymore?

    • Good Bye America as we knew it. The left took over and will continue to do so. The democrats succeded in allowing the scum to evade our borders. Without culture, borders & language, we are just a rich banana republic. Federal government is out of control. Just look at all the perks and salaries they receive. The residential homes in the Washington DC area are the most expensive in the nation. Congress spends large sums of money on frivolous trips all over the world for no apparent reason, other than to vacation. Out of control and must be held accountable.

    • I agree with you wholeheartedly. It really bothers me that so many articles that are posted everywhere have such incorrect spellings and grammar.

    • They are NOT taught in the indoctrination centers called schools of any large city, and fewer yearly in the rest of the country. The public schools now are not teaching anything except mindless obedience to the ruling class

    • Have you been in our class rooms lately? Thanks, to” no child left behind”.. it’s the students who rule the classrooms. Teachers not allowed to teach, but maintain the status quo…
      Inmates are in control of the nut house who rules over teachers & what’s worst students know they are in control .
      When you have students in teachers faces calling them name & telling teachers I do not have to do what you tell me. It’s called insanity.
      Did you ever see the movie BLACK BOARD JUNGLE? Glenn Ford as the teacher? Welcome to our non education of our generation. It’s on purpose, to dumb students down, so they can not think for themselves & be controled by the government.
      So how in the heck are they to learn grammar, math, history or spell?
      We saw the change in th ’80’s- ’87 Ross Pero. Remember him?
      Order must be brought back into the rooms, stop all political correctness to destroy
      our nation.
      The children are the lloosers.
      We must wake up..

    • Don’t think so, as well as reading and arithmetic, all LOST to demoTARDs and the dept. of education(indoctrination)!

  23. Time to stop playing with theses idiots in their attempt to overthrow the elected president
    The time is right to start to Subpoena the witnesses that they refused to allow to testify. Which should include Adam Schiff the Bidens and the so called whistleblower and the others which the republicans couldn’t inter agate as to their association with the Democratic Party and their motives than they will have to answer

  24. They are crazy.They need to be remove by any means possible.They said last night if this impeachment doesn’t work the will keep impeaching him til it does.They are sick in the head.We need to vote all of them out especially these ones who have been there a long time.If we don’t they will not stop and they still wont do anything for the American people.

  25. I believe that the Democrat Party has lost it’s mine. They are trying to say that all American people agree with them. This is such a big scam.

  26. the democratic should know dy now you wont change our mind whit youre lie,s stop being sore losers and grow up we dont need a socialist in office.
