Alabama’s Doug Jones May Vote to Acquit Trump in Senate Impeachment Trial

Democrats are simply wasting time and ignoring actual policy at this point.

In the latest sign of the futility of a Democratic impeachment attempt, Alabama Senator Doug Jones said that he may vote to acquit President Donald Trump in a Senate impeachment trial.

Jones spoke on ABC’s ‘This Week’ on Sunday. He was asked about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s statement claiming that he knew of “one or two Democrats” who would vote against impeachment in a Senate trial.

When asked of his thought process related to impeachment, Jones said the following:

What I’m trying to do, because quite frankly I didn’t sit in front of the TV set the entire time the last two or three months, I have been trying to read this. I have been trying to see if the dots get connected. If that is the case, I think it’s a serious matter, I think it’s an impeachable matter. But if those dots aren’t connected and there are other explanations that I think are consistent with innocence, I will go that way too.

Democrats are already the minority party in the senate, and losing votes within their own caucus in impeachment proceedings essentially ensures they’d have no chance to convict the President after ramming an impeachment resolution through the House of Representatives.

Jones is a Democrat in a heavily red state who faces an uphill battle to win reelection in 2020. A vote to impeach the President on spurious accusations revolving around withholding foreign aid from Ukraine would all but ensure he’d lose in a landslide to a Republican, especially considering Alabama political heavyweight and former Senator Jeff Sessions has announced a campaign to win back his old seat.

At this point it seems doubtful if a Senate trial will even occur, considering Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has refused to actually send articles of impeachment to the Senate until she’s guaranteed a “fair trial,” providing Democrats an excuse to avoid politically embarrassing impeachment proceedings in a legislative chamber where they can’t dictate the agenda.

After Facebook Censors ANTIFA Warning Video, Georgia Congressional Front-Runner Doubles Down with TV Ad Buy

Marjorie Greene will not stop exposing ANTIFA no matter the consequences.

Georgia GOP Congressional candidate Marjorie Greene is doubling down after Facebook censored her video calling out ANTIFA domestic terrorists and refused to allow her to promote it on their monopoly platform.

“This content also violates our violence and incitement policy within our Community Standards. You can read more about that here. This post will be removed,“ Facebook told Greene’s campaign after they attempted to promote a video about the far-left terror group.

This is the video released by Greene that Facebook does not want you to see:

Even though social media has censored her message, she is continuing to push the message about the evils of ANTIFA, a group which has supplanted ISIS as the top threat to the American national security. She released an explosive new ad that could potentially potentially millions of Georgians before the upcoming primary election next week.

“ANTIFA terrorists have declared war on America,” Greene says in the ad. “Rioting, looting and burning our cities. George Soros, Hollywood elites, and Joe Biden’s staff are funding ANTIFA.”

“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”

The full ad can be seen here:

Moreso than perhaps any other candidate running for office in the United States, Greene’s messaging is congruent with the White House with regards to ANTIFA. President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr recently announced that they would be treating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization, a move that Big League Politics has been advocating for years.

“It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it. The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protesters, as well as all other citizens,” Attorney General Bill Barr said in a statement about the violence.

“It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances. Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed,” he continued.

Greene is running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in Georgia’s 14th Congressional district against several competitors. The primary election is set to take place on June 9.
