Senate Republicans are getting ready to try President Donald Trump after he was impeached by Congress in a partisan witch hunt on Wednesday, and they want him to be quiet on Twitter while they conduct their business.
“This is a solemn and serious undertaking and I just think we don’t need a bunch of distractions,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), who believes that it would be “optimal” for Trump to stay off of Twitter.
“The president will like the outcome, I believe, in the end. So … making it easier not harder would be a good thing,” he added.
“The president would be best served by letting his lawyers speak for him and not doing any comment. At all,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said. “I doubt, however, that he will heed my advice.”
Collins is correct in her assessment that the President is unlikely to listen to her and let Senate Republicans and their swampy lawyers do his fighting for him. The senators clearly want to be the stars of the show and do not want the President to upstage them while conducting their proceedings.
“He needs to be respectful of the process,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). “He can defend himself, he has a right to express his grievances but if I were him I would … keep a low profile.”
“There [are] many cases in which I hope he doesn’t tweet,” Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-SD) said.
“Tweet less, smile more,” said Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) in a condescending suggestion to the President.
Up to this point, Trump has fended off the witch hunt led by Democrats and the deep state with the power of his Twitter account. Although he was impeached by Congressional Democrats yesterday, his poll ratings continue to improve with the general public.
Big League Politics reported:
A Suffolk University/USA Today Poll shows President Trump is now ahead of his likely electoral competition in next year’s presidential election.
Trump is beating former Vice President Joe Biden by 3 points in the poll. He is leading Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by 5 points, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren by 8 points. He is up on former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg by 9 points, and beating South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg by 10 points.
“Polls taken nearly a year before an election are hardly a reliable indicator about what the eventual outcome will be, especially when the other nominee hasn’t been chosen. But the findings do indicate that impeachment hearings detailing what critics see as Trump’s violations of the Constitution and his oath of office haven’t undermined his core political support,” USA Today wrote while analyzing their poll findings.
Trump is also doing better in battleground states as voters see the Democrats grasping at straws conducting their partisan witch hunt.
Polling by Firehouse Strategies and Optimus released last week also showed how impeachment has resulted in Trump gaining in the Midwest. He now has substantial leads in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, with a six point lead over all competitors in those crucial states.
Senate Republicans would be wise to follow the President’s lead during his trial in their chamber, instead of trying to influence him to deny his instincts.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes
If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.
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.
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.
