17 GOP Senators Needed To Impeach Trump

So far only one - Ben Sasse - is considering it

Every single other GOP Senator don't seem interested voting in favor of this

by Anonymousreply 4801/12/2021

Romney and Murkowski are probably in. 14 more.

by Anonymousreply 101/11/2021

Murkowski and Romney and Toomey and Thune I bet

Collins?

OP the Senate does not impeach. They conduct the trial against the impeached POTUS.

If an impeachment vote is taken in the House tomorrow you can bet your last dollar that Trump WILL be impeached a second time.

She left the closet?

of course, Miss Linda is out, he wouldn't want those tapes released.

Fucking Miss Lindsey's opinions are worth about as much as dog shit or Ted Cruz.

by Anonymousreply 901/11/2021

unfortunately, unless there's another insurrection-like event w/more deaths, Senate aint gonna convict

I will make me very happy to have Trump impeached a second time by the House.

By not supporting a prescriptive measure of any kind to the primary source of this uprising, Graham is effectively nullifying his previous statement, and saying he supports violent insurrection, and the threatening of lives of his fellow Senators, the VP, and police officers.

It is as simple as that.

by Anonymousreply 1301/11/2021

I think they would convict only if it was discovered that his involvement runs much deeper.. Bribes, blackmail, political pressure etc etc

R7 - I mean read the comments. I think just about every living human being knows he is gay, even the Republicans defending him. He could have had a far better career in his party and his state if he married a woman, but c'mon, it would be like Boy George marrying a woman at this point. But that shows you what hypocrites Repukes really are. Their party supposedly stands against gay men, but when a gay man does their bidding...they throw their "principles" to the wind.

by Anonymousreply 1501/11/2021

R9 - not really. Ted Cruz is disgusting and just about nobody likes him, he knows he doesn't have much to lose. Lindsey on the other hand really fits the bill of an old boy who is white, conservative, and he is smart enough to understand that, once he already said "count me out", he now needs to repair his good Republican standing. Say whatever you will about the Senatrice, but one thing she ain't is stupid. But I always know that when we put our minds to it, we are usually a bit smarter than the straights.

[quote]In light of President Trump’s Thursday statement pledging an orderly transfer power and calling for healing in our nation, a second impeachment will do far more harm than good.

What's that, Miz Lindz? The statement he made that he's already retracted? My but you are a trusting soul.

by Anonymousreply 1701/11/2021

He never fails to disappoint. Weasel.

by Anonymousreply 1801/11/2021

It's unlikely they'll get that many senators. Therefore, the critical part of this is to get as many of them on record as possible NOT to vote for impeachment, so that they have to go back home and get hammered for their vote.

A few more Senate seats during the last two years of Biden's first term would be useful.

by Anonymousreply 1901/11/2021

r19 Senators do not vote for impeachment.

by Anonymousreply 2001/11/2021

They should've impeached Trump on a monthly basis beginning in 2017.

by Anonymousreply 2101/11/2021

Based on the actions of last week, I don’t think the people who’d be upset at Trump’s impeachment are interested in unity.

by Anonymousreply 2201/11/2021

Actually, unlike before Lindsey doesn't say he 100% won't vote for conviction. He just says it's a bad idea and ask for forgiveness but stop short stating of how he will vote. They already have at least 6 GOP senators who will likely vote yes. 11 more to go and it could theoretically happen.

by Anonymousreply 2301/11/2021

At this point just take all the Republican male senators, hold their wives or daughters down (or in Lindsey’s case, himself), and let the Trump males take turns. They still wouldn’t do shit.

by Anonymousreply 2401/11/2021

R16 -- Miss Lindz is a weather vane and a snake. Who did more (other than McTurtle) to enable DUMP for the last four years, after saying in the primaries that he was an absolute disaster and unacceptable?

I'd like to toss McTurtle in a pot and make soup out of him. That coward hasn't said a word. And the Capitol Insurrection is directly traceable to his temporizing and 'humoring' DUMP's attacks on democracy after the election in an effort to keep his Senate majority, which he lost anyway. Great leadership. He's a cowardly cur and and if he had one shred of integrity he would step down.

by Anonymousreply 2501/12/2021

They’ll chicken out.

by Anonymousreply 2601/12/2021

It's been said elsewhere here that the requirement is two-thirds of senators present for the vote, not of the entire Senate. If so, potentially some Rep Senators could just stay away for the vote, and it would work, so long as it was quorate.

by Anonymousreply 2701/12/2021

Almost every day, some new story comes about Dump's complicity in this event. Maybe the likelihood of impeachment isn't that great at this moment, but this is a story of a lifetime for media outlets who have been shit all over by this administration for the past 4 years. By the time it gets to a vote, who knows what other stories will be out there, making it impossible to look the other way. Unlike those retarded congressmen, Senators have to appeal to the masses, not just one district of freaks & meth addicts

by Anonymousreply 2801/12/2021

House impeaches. Get the senators votes on paper. Use just the one charge - sedition.

In a month or two when there is more info, impeach him again. For example vote tampering. Then get the senate on record again.

Finally, they should vote to label all contributors to the coup d'etat as seditionists. The congress can then legally expel any congressperson with a provable link to the coup d'etat. Forget Trump at that future date - just punish congress cretins.

He can't be impeached when out of office.

Trump has shit on all of them...via Putin. That will come out.

Guess the people in the airport got to him. He doesn’t want to have that happen again so let’s side with mob rule.

Except the House didn’t present those as Articles. The mention of the Georgia shenanigans was just that, a mention.

This whole thing is disgusting.

And in light of my desire to sit in an airport without having my craven cowardice pointed out to me by those terrorists, I mean fine Americans, that exercised their right to dissent in the Capitol.

I mean, they even SMELLED BAD!

by Anonymousreply 3401/12/2021

I'd predict that whatever Lindsay Graham says today, he'll contradict later this week.

by Anonymousreply 3501/12/2021

IF Trump is behaves himself, and IF there is no further violence between now and inauguration day, Republicans will refuse to convict Trump.

Before you start flaming me, I'm just stating political reality, it's not my personal belief. Personally, I'd think Trump should have been taken out and shot a year ago.

by Anonymousreply 3601/12/2021

If not today, R35.

If she had any shame, she'd ... oh, never mind. She has proven time and again that she has no shame.

Trump and Epstein were friends for decades. Epstein filmed visitors to Pedophile Island with underage children doing God knows what else. I truly believe Trump ordered him murdered so he could never testify against him. But where did all of the blackmail tapes end up with and who all was compromised?

by Anonymousreply 4001/12/2021

No clearer sign that the Republican party is treasonous than that they hesitate to convict the obviously treasonous president.

by Anonymousreply 4101/12/2021

R36, no reason to flame you. You’re right, as ridiculous as it is, nevertheless you’re right.

(Clarification: You’re not ridiculous, their stance is.)

by Anonymousreply 4201/12/2021

To the posters above - arguably yes indeed a president can be impeached after leaving office. And in particular, if he is impeached now, then the senate can hold their trial when the president is out of office.

It is so painful to watch this monster walk free after what he has done to us. He has hurt everyone around him and abused them his entire life. What a travesty of justice and a knife in our backs

[quote][R19] Senators do not vote for impeachment.

Yes, r20, obviously - they have the sole power to try all impeachments.

How very tedious you are.

by Anonymousreply 4501/12/2021

If Congress impeaches Trump tomorrow, is there a time limit for the Senate trial?

Once Democrats take office, and they start to uncover all of the shit, corruption and malfeasance that's been going on the last four years, including the Russian collusion, is there a time limit for the trial to start.

I think after 3 to 6 months, we'll have more favorable evidence to persuade Republicans to vote for conviction.

by Anonymousreply 4601/12/2021

Well, they’re already talking about waiting until Biden serves his first hundred days, so I doubt there’s a limit.

But, the problem with your scenario is none of those things you mentioned are in the Article (only one!) of Impeachment.

by Anonymousreply 4701/12/2021

the 14th Amendment might be a good option, requires only a majority vote:

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.
