Congress

Republican Senators Draft Motion to Dismiss Impeachment as Democrats Stall

The legislative procedure would shut down the impeachment hoax in its tracks.

Published

on

Republican Senators are planning a push to update Senate rules, allowing them to dismiss articles of impeachment as Nancy Pelosi continues to delay formally transmitting the articles to the Senate.

Josh Hawley has led the push to amend Senate rules, giving the chamber an opportunity to place the political stunt orchestrated by the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives neatly in the legislative trash.

Impeachment is essentially dead in the water in the Senate. Even liberal Republicans and conservative Democrats have declined to endorse the House’s knee-jerk attempt to remove President Trump from office, guaranteeing an impeachment trial will have no chance to result in conviction in the GOP-controlled Senate.

Hawley released a statement Monday on his drive to shut down Pelosi’s arbitrary and stalled publicity stunt.

“Speaker Pelosi started this bogus impeachment by claiming President Trump was an urgent ‘threat to democracy’ who had to be removed now. But after a bipartisan vote against the articles in the House, and with the public opposed to the Democrats’ partisan games, Pelosi has changed her tune. Now she wants to prevent a Senate trial, perhaps indefinitely. But the Constitution gives the Senate sole power to adjudicate articles of impeachment, not the House.”

“If Speaker Pelosi is afraid to try her case, the articles should be dismissed for failure to prosecute and Congress should get back to doing the people’s business.”

Hawley’s impeachment dismissal motion is being sponsored by numerous other Republican Senators, such as Rick Scott, Mike Braun, Marsha Blackburn, Ted Cruz, Steve Daines, John Barrasso, Tom Cotton, Joni Ernst, David Perdue and Jim Inhofe.

After Democrats staged a dramatic and political impeachment process in the House of Representatives, they’d surely be incensed if their partisan gambit was shut down in its tracks without additional legislative recognition.

They’d probably be best served moving on from impeachment- which was a doomed waste of time from the beginning- but knowing the Democrats, they’ll probably pivot directly to another deranged plot to remove Trump from office and overturn the 2016 election.
