(Tea Party PAC) – The Democrats have kept a close eye on the RINOs in the Senate who may help them to make as much as a spectacle out of the impeachment hearing as humanly possible: Murkowski, Romney, and Collins, but what about Democrats who may break from party lines?
Particularly to save their own rears?
They’re out there, and they’re spelling bad news for Dems, who can never even dream of gaining the ⅔ majority they need to convict President Donald Trump.
Democrats in red states have a lot to risk by going along with their radical party, and could be far more concerned about saving their own seat than they are about participating in the complete sham that is the Democrats’ impeachment.
Democrat Sens. Joe Manchin (WV), Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), and Doug Jones (AL) are all reportedly voting to acquit.
When the House voted on the two articles of impeachment the anti-Trump Dems managed to scrape together out of nothing, thirty Democrat lawmakers in Trump districts voted in favor, and they may find out in November just what a bad move that was.
Not one single Republican has voted for the sham.
A trio of moderate Senate Democrats is wrestling with whether to vote to convict Donald Trump in his impeachment trial — or give the president the bipartisan acquittal he’s eagerly seeking.
Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Doug Jones of Alabama are undecided on whether to vote to remove the president from office and agonizing over where to land. It’s a decision that could have major ramifications for each senator’s legacy and political prospects — as well shape the broader political dynamic surrounding impeachment heading into the 2020 election.
All three senators remain undecided after hearing arguments from the impeachment managers and Trump’s defense team. But they could end up with a creative solution.
One or more senators may end up splitting their votes, borrowing a move from Rep. Jared Golden (D-Maine), who voted for the abuse of power charge but against the one on obstruction of Congress.
Manchin said he will do that only if he “can explain one and not the other.” Jones has been mildly critical of the obstruction impeachment article and says he’s “troubled” the House didn’t fight harder to hear from critical administration witnesses.
