House Betrays Trump, Votes for Impeachment

House Betrays Trump, Votes for Impeachment

(RepublicanPress.org) – Washington, DC appears to have been turned inside out and upside down in recent days. And it culminated in another witch hunt by the Left. However, this time, they got a hand from some Republicans.

On January 6, civil unrest came to roost in the city as a joint session of Congress convened to certify the Electoral College ballots. An internal FBI memo raised concerns of a nationwide repeat of last week’s events, deepening concerns. In the midst of this chaos, Democratic members of Congress pushed for Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office or for Trump to resign.

When neither happened, they pushed through a “snap” impeachment vote, approving one article, on January 13. It’s nothing new for Democrats to try and discredit Trump’s presidency. They’ve been doing that since before he took office.

What’s stunning is the fact that a few House Republicans appear to have switched sides. Ten of them voted to approve the article of impeachment in a stunning rebuke to the party.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) already made it clear he would not convene an emergency session of the Senate to conduct a trial. This effectively shut the door on the possibility of the president being removed from office before the end of his term, regardless of the House voting result.
