NEW: Moderate ‘Republican’ Senators Won’t Commit to Keeping Trump If There’s a Removal Vote

These “Republican” Senators won’t say whether they would vote to keep Trump.

After Big League Politics contacted several moderate “Republican” Senators – perhaps known better as members of the GOP establishment – to see if they would commit to voting against the potential removal of President Donald J. Trump, we found that none were willing to commit to keeping the 45th President.

As the 2020 election draws nearer, the possibility of the members of the Democratic Party in the House of Representatives impeaching Trump on the basis of the bogus “Russian collusion” investigation – which turned up empty – is a continuing topic of discussion. Some Democrats want to impeach the President despite the fact that he decidedly did not “collude” with any Russians, according to Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report clearing Trump of any wrongdoing. Holding the majority in the House, they have the votes to accomplish this goal – at least in theory.

In the event that the House votes to impeach Trump, there would be a removal vote held in the Senate, requiring a two-thirds majority to actually remove Trump. With only a small majority in the Senate, and considering how some Republicans have wavered in their support of Trump, the 67 votes required to remove him from office could be achieved if some of the noted fence-sitters side with Democrats.

To that end, Big League Politics reached out to several Senate offices and asked them a simple question: In the event of a removal vote based specifically on the findings of the Mueller report, would they vote against removing Trump?

After reaching out to the offices of Sens. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), and Susan Collins (R-Maine) several times over a period of three days, none of the Senators would commit to voting against a potential removal. In fact, none of them even bothered to answer the question.

Murkowski and Collins have actively fought against Trump’s border security initiatives. Both were notoriously flaky during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Sasse has been openly critical of Trump.

Furthermore, middle-of-the-road members of the higher chamber of Congress like Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) have rebuked Trump in the wake of the Mueller report, despite the fact that it clears the president of wrongdoing. At the moment, Romney is on record stating that he would not support Trump’s impeachment.

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee

Interesting timing.

Published

on

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
