The real action in any impeachment process will be the Senate trial.
Chuck Schumer was counting on his caucus standing united in favor of removing the President from office.
But you won’t believe which Democrats just betrayed Chuck Schumer on impeachment.
Democrats will need 67 votes in the Senate to convict Donald Trump on any articles of impeachment the Nancy Pelosi-run House passes.
And some nervous Senate Democrats — including Senators John Tester (D-MT), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Doug Jones (D-AL) — are already sending up warning signs that the process could spiral out of control and end up in defeat.
The Hill reports:
Senate Democrats representing red states are worried the House impeachment process may spin out of control and destroy any chance their party might have of winning back the majority next year.
These Democrats hope the House keeps its impeachment focus on the Ukraine controversy, and that Democrats act relatively quickly. If they do not, the red-state Democrats warn President Trump could turn the tables on them.
“It’s really incumbent on the House to really be laser-focused. The president is a master of pivoting and deflecting and I think it’s really important to stay focused,” said Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), who narrowly won reelection in a Republican-leaning state in 2018.
Tester said the impeachment inquiry should be focused on Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, where he pressed for an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden.
The simple fact is Democrats can’t help themselves.
The Left has been talking about impeaching Donald Trump from the day he took office.
They just couldn’t manufacture a pretext to try to undo the results of the 2016 election.
But the longer impeachment goes on, red state Democrats fear the American people will see they are staging a coup against the President.
