Republican Senators Draft Motion to Dismiss Impeachment as Democrats Stall

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

Published

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.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes

If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.

Published

Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.

McSally announced the resolution, titled the ‘No COVID-19 Relief, No Pay Act‘ on Tuesday.

Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.

If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.

Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”

Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.

There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.

McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
