GOP Senators Claim It Is “Good News” If House Finds Trump Guilty?
The House Dems seem to think they have a case when it comes to impeaching Trump. They have been calling in witnesses and the MSM would have you believe this is it, they are finally going to take down Trump. But much like what you hear from most of the MSM, that too is fake news. Even if the House Dems skew the evidence in their favor and file articles of impeachment, it still has to go through the Republican-majority Senate. And they have already let everyone know how that will go.
“House Democrats are entering what may be the final phase of their impeachment inquiry, after wrapping up a spree of hearings where witnesses tied top officials — including President Trump — to efforts to pressure Ukraine on political investigations while military aid was being withheld.
But the tables could turn, should the House approve impeachment articles and trigger a trial in the Republican-controlled Senate. There, Trump’s allies are already indicating they will look more closely at allegations involving Democrats.
“Frankly, I want a trial,” Trump declared Friday on “Fox & Friends.”
There’s a reason for that.
Democrats have controlled everything during marathon proceedings in the House, frustrating GOP attempts to call witnesses pertaining to the matters Trump wanted Ukraine to investigate — specifically, the Bidens’ business dealings in that country and Kiev’s alleged interference in the 2016 election.
But that changes on the Senate side, where Republicans have the majority and Trump allies chair key committees. Already, they’ve signaled their interest in exploring issues that House Democrats glossed over during their hearings.
On Thursday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., penned a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting the release of any documents related to contacts between former Vice President Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, and to a meeting between son Hunter Biden’s business partner and former Secretary of State John Kerry.
“Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, said sending articles of impeachment to the Senate was “good news.”
“Everyone knows what they’re going to do next. They’re going to impeach the president and send it onto the Senate, but that is the good news. That’s good news,” Stewart said. “In the U.S. Senate, there won’t be any secret testimony or dishonest leadership … or to deny a defense.”
He added: “So we’ll finally be able to get to the truth.”
So despite the MSM’s claims about damning evidence and their biased interpretations of the Inquiry Hearings, this still all comes down to the Senate. And thankfully the Dems have no power there.
