Democrats in the House of Representatives are all but certain to pass articles of impeachment against Donald Trump.
The action then moves to the Republican controlled Senate.
And all hell broke loose when this top Republican made this shocking prediction about Trump’s impeachment fate.
South Carolina Republican Tim Scott is not one of the most conservative members of the Republican caucus.
Scott supports gun control and played the race card against one of President Trump’s outstanding judicial nominees.
But even middle of the road Republicans like Scott realize the Democrats’ impeachment witch hunt is a joke.
Scott declared the President “innocent” and said there was no way the Senate would convict Trump on the Democrats’ articles of impeachment.
Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) said President Trump is “innocent,” and there’s “no way in the world” the U.S. Senate will remove him from office.
“One thing is crystal clear, what we heard this week from the House was — no facts, no evidence, nothing that would lead to an impeachment,” Scott said on Friday. “This is a place where I think all Americans wanted to know: where is the fact pattern that leads to a conclusion of impeachment?”
“What we heard instead,” Scott continued, “was contradictory conclusions from Vindman and Williams. We heard Inconsistency from Sondland. He says there was a quid pro quo, but when he talked about the president’s own words to him, he said the president said ‘no quid pro quo.’”
“So I’m not confused, I’m actually more clear that there is no way in the world the Senate … can convict the president… Because he seems to be innocent of an impeachable offense.”
Democrats thought brining in a bunch of Deep State leakers and saboteurs to gossip about Donald Trump in televised impeachment hearings would sway the public against President Trump.
But judging by Scott’s comments, the Democrats committed one major miscalculation.
