Why has not a single Republican Senator defended Donald Trump’s conduct?
This question itself is nothing more than a liberals fantasy. Guess what? The majority of the party is united with Trump, no matter what the “Liberal News!” might tell you. The truth of the matter is that the impeachment of Donald Trump dies in the Senate.
Here’s some choice reading material for all those who think no Republican senators support trump.
Senator Ted Cruz, Texas has been one of the most outspoken in defense of Trump from the onset. I guess everybody forgot about that.
This sounds like a pretty solid defense of Trump, Here’s what he said. “The House articles don’t meet that standard. They don’t allege any criminal conduct whatsoever, so at the end of this process, after a fair trial, the president will be acquitted, and we will end this constitutional circus, this political farce that started in the House. This is the beginning of the end of the abuse of the Constitution.”
Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., has called the impeachment probe into President Donald Trump a “,” a “clown show,” and a “cocktail that is” House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff’s “favorite drink to get America drunk on.”
Then there’s Senator Ron Johnson, another outspoken defender of Trump going as far a writing an 11-page letter pointing out the hoax this impeachment truly is. Nothing to see here right.
Senators Lindsay Graham and Mitch McConnell have both ardently spoke out in defense of Trump.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a top Trump ally, said Wednesday that he wants the looming impeachment trial to be wrapped before the scheduled Feb. 4 State of the Union address.
“The best thing for the American people is to end this crap as quickly as possible, to have a trial in the Senate, bipartisan acquittal of the president. And on Feb. 4, when the president comes into the House chamber to deliver the State of the Union, he will have been acquitted by the Senate,” Graham said during an interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity.
Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the case that the Trump impeachment was setting a “toxic” and “nightmarish” precedent “deeply damaging to the institutions of American government.” The House’s actions, said the majority leader, would ensure that impeachment became routine, a “constant part…of the political background noise” and of the “arms race of polarization.”
It would be transformed into a weapon with which to “paralyze future Senates with frivolous impeachments at will.” The Senate, in his view, is now obligated to act as a brake to prevent a “constitutional crisis.”
Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), who defended the president during a press conference on Thursday.
“I’ve watched this president. I’ve listened to this president. He does not want foreign governments interfering in our election. He’s been very strong about that,” McCarthy said. “He’s been so strong against Russia.”
Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), “I personally think we’re legitimizing an illegitimate process. We ought to move immediately to dismissal,”
Sen. Roy Blunt defended Trump saying that “The charges are pretty thin gruel, I don’t see anything impeachable in that,” he added. “The upcoming Senate impeachment trial is “not a trial in any classic sense,” adding that there are senators running for the Democratic presidential nomination and that every member has “obvious” political considerations.”
African American Republican U.S. Sen. Tim Scott said Tuesday there is “no possibility” ongoing impeachment proceedings will result in President Donald Trump’s removal from office.
“I am confident that there’s no way it gets out of the Senate,” Scott said.
Scott said he was unmoved by two weeks of public testimony before the House Intelligence Committee. In those testimonies, witnesses detailed allegations about how the Trump administration withheld $400 million in military aid in an effort to pressure Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden.
“The bombshells really are the lack of bombshells, from my perspective,” Scott said. “The Ukrainians got the aid, and they got it without any conditions.”
U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis cemented his support for President Donald Trump amid impeachment proceedings as the incumbent Republican senator filed to run for a second term.
“Based on everything I’ve seen right now, I don’t know why they even put ‘probably’ in there. I’ve said that the whole process is flawed, it’s been unfair. I’ve read the transcript, I’ve read the whistleblower complaint. I’ve been briefed up on some of the other interviews that we’ll get more information when I sit as a juror, but I’m a definite no,” Tillis said.
Joni Ernst of Iowa “One thing to remember, folks, is that the president did actually provide aid to Ukraine,” Ernst said. “So, the point is moot, I believe.”
Ernst said, “So, again, I think the point is moot. So, no I don’t believe that we need to hear from additional witnesses based on that information because he got the aid to Ukraine, and in a way that was specified by Congress. So he did actually follow through on congressional intent. So that in itself, I don’t believe is a qualifier for additional witnesses.”
Ernst again criticized the House’s decision to impeach Trump as a “political exercise.”
As you can see they are correct, it wasn’t just one Senator that has defended Trump but several. I can share more if anyone would like to see them, It’s time to dispel the myth that Trump is a lone wolf, he not only has the support of the American people but his party as well.
