Reports that around 20 GOP senators are "open" to convicting once the House impeaches. Will Mitch oblige?

Could they please drag him out in crying and with a dirty diaper, please? We have earned this!

They need to do it now before he returns to the WH. Let him stay in Texas, in the desert.

As much as I want to see Trump thrown out on his ass, I worry about his frantic base and what they'll do if Trump is forced out.

Oh poor you, R4. Most of us know how to manage complex situations while not hesitating to do the right thing. boo hoo hoo dear.

This is what happens when a fascist party like the Republicans choose to challenge their madman’s lies all at once, AFTER he’s been defeated.
Civil war. They should have challenged his lies consistently since 2015.

Trump needs to be impeached at least to forbid his entry into the 2024 election.

r4, that is the very definition of terrorism; being cowed into not doing something for fear of what your opposition will do next.
You have been terrorized

There just isn’t time. Remember the senate has to try him after he’s impeached. How can they manage that before January 20? It’s only seven days.

I heard that Schumer can do the trial after he takes over as Majority leader of the Senate. We would only need 17 Repugs to vote for Conviction at that point too.
Might make more sense to wait.

Another repub is in. Voting yes.

Never gonna happen. Rethugs are too chicken shit to go all the way with it.

Trump could be impeached even after he leaves office.

R7 - “ Trump needs to be impeached at least to forbid his entry into the 2024 election.”
Not just impeached R7, but Impeached AND then CONVICTED by the Senate. Conviction by the Senate ensures that dump will be thrown out of office, and never be able to hold a federal position again. It’s all up to McConnell and his boys at this point.

r7 Please stop repeating that. He's already been impeached. Do you think being impeached twice somehow makes him ineligible to run again?
|by Anonymous||reply 18||01/12/2021|
It’s a nice consolation and well-deserved, but unless he’s convicted before 1/20, it’s not going to be exciting. He’ll lose his pension and will be formally banned from running again, which is something, but I don’t think he was going to run again.

Of course not stupid, fat ho,R18. We have momentum on our side to get the senate to convict. But you already knew that right?
|by Anonymous||reply 20||01/12/2021|
If Congress thinks he should be impeached and convicted, he should be impeached and convicted. It doesn't matter if it happens before he leaves office and it doesn't matter if he can run again later or he can't (his supporters would just vote for Don Jr.). It's for history. It means his name will be ruined for 100 years and more. That's enough for me.

McConnell is 50/50. He wants revenge for Georgia.

Mitch is signaling his openness, this could happen people.

Remember, there has to be a trial in the Senate, with Chief Justice presiding.

I think Mitch wants the Senate to approve the impeachment, but after Biden's inauguration, so he isn't in charge of it.

Oh, I don’t know. Maybe the same way they acquitted him quickly in 2019 without allowing witnesses.
Or the way they smashed through Amy COVID Barrett’s selection.
When they want to act fast they can.

McTurdle doesn't want a negro VP- especially a "fish" (as he calls them).
Why did I marry him? We both needed a beard. My papasan a Chinese billionaire who don't like the queers. I have to think about my inheritance.

He won't be removed from office. If they have enough support to actually convict him after the impeachment, that will happen after he's out of office and Biden is sworn in. There isn't enough time to actually have a trial and vote on conviction before his term is up. He'll finish his term. Sadly.

It's kinda like murder: who cares when it happened? It has to be dealt with.

McConnell has been the most powerful man in DC for, some say, 20 years. Trump cost him his job, his power, broke the Republican party, totally fucked up the sanctity of the US capitol and nearly got them all killed. He pushed through a Supreme Cunt nominee in 8 days. He can impeach in 1- The senators themselves are the witnesses.
He's a master of politics. This story broke just as AF1 was landing back in DC. Cheney and McConnell planned for Trump to see it on CNN ten minutes before he landed. Just for the camera shot of lamedick Trump wearily stomping down the stairs of AF1. Priceless. McConnell has him by the balls.
