U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters that he believes it is “inconceivable” that the sufficient 20 Republicans would break ranks with Trump and vote to remove the President.
It IS conceivable, Mr. Majority Leader. It’s even very likely.
Think: Has the President made Republicans proud to be identified with him? Are those Republican Senators certain that they will continue to be reelected in their home states? Is there no member of the Grand Old Party not suffering embarrassment for their leader and their party?
If I were one of those Senators in the jury, I would do what is best without hesitation. My duty would be to represent and speak for my constituents back home. The numbers might vary between states, but the majority of American voters want Trump impeached. And many of them can list additional reasons why.
When the jury is convened, would I, the fantasy Senator, stand with and for the people of the United States of America and do what is necessary? Or would I gamble with my own future and stand with my very red-faced party with my thumb in my mouth?
