GOP senator quoted saying: ’30 Republican senators would vote to impeach Trump’ if it was secret

Published

One Republican senator reportedly predicted that 30 Republican senators would convict President Donald Trump of impeachment in a secret vote.

Republican consultant Mike Murphy revealed the senator’s remarks on MSNBC Wednesday.

“It’s a classic shakedown. That’s going to be the argument,” Murphy said. “These Senate Republicans, should the Democrats vote impeachment which is far more likely than not, are going to be pinned down to a yes/no answer.”

Murphy predicted that Republicans would lose Senate seats in Colorado, Maine and Arizona if senators failed to support impeachment.

“The politics of it will get worse and worse for Trump,” he pointed out. “One Republican senator told me if it was a secret vote, 30 Republican senators would vote to impeach Trump.”

New York Times editorial board asks Trump if he didn’t do anything wrong — why he won’t let witnesses testify

Published

The New York Times editorial board issued a scathing op-ed Sunday detailing the ways in which President Donald Trump is destroying one of the key branches of the United States government.

While many presidents battle with Congress, Trump has taken his "obvious contempt" to a whole new level. But if he was truly innocent of the accusations he's facing, then why is he hiding so much.

"If Mr. Trump is so clear in his own mind that he didn’t try to pressure the Ukrainian government to interfere in the 2020 election, why won’t he send the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, to testify under oath that there was no quid pro quo?" asked The Times. "Instead, he has issued a blanket refusal to allow officials of his administration to testify or submit documents demanded by Congress. His approach is pitting Republican House members’ fealty to him against their respect for their own institution. They are making a fateful choice to diminish the House."
