Latest Russia news makes it ‘more likely’ Senate Republicans will back impeachment: conservative columnist

Published

on

The latest revelations about whether President Donald Trump is a witting or unwitting agent of Russia will make it more likely Senate Republicans will split from the White House during an impeachment trial, conservative New York Times columnist Bret Stephens explained to MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily” anchor Katy Tur on Monday.

In recent days, The New York Times reported the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into Trump and the Washington Post reported on Trump concealing his private conversations with Russia President Vladimir Putin.

Tur asked whether impeachment “is a more realistic possibility today” than before the bombshell reports.

“Impeachment is always a political question, but yeah,” Stephens replied.

“The evidence has mounted now on the core issue that matters to actually a critical mass of Republicans, which is the Russia question,” he explained. “It is not about finance violations or Stormy Daniels or any of those stories, is the president actually in some way colluding advertently or inadvertently with a foreign adversary.

“So that makes it much more likely, in fact, it makes it more likely that you will find Senate Republicans taking it seriously, too,” he added.

Whatever you think about the unrest gripping this country–whether you’re outraged by cops’ across America brutally repressing peaceful protesters or the people breaking windows and looting businesses–the proximate cause was officer Derek Chauvin, who was still on the job despite being named in 18 previous complaints, slowly murdering George Floyd on the street–compressing his throat for 8 minutes and 46 seconds–as other officers looked on and a small crowd screamed that Chauvin was killing him. That video quickly went viral and here we are.
