Senate Republicans Predict Bipartisan Acquittal Of President Trump In Impeachment Trial

Republicans in the Senate are predicting a bipartisan vote to acquit President Trump in the impending impeachment trial. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell recently said he would not be surprised if a few Democrats broke rank and cleared the president of any wrongdoing. He further added that Democrats are divided on the issue.

Sen. Joe Manchin and Sen. Doug Jones are red-state Democrats, who will likely side with Republicans. This week, Jones said he would vote to acquit President Trump if the evidence doesn’t add up. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who recently voiced concern over McConnell’s coordination with the White House, could potentially be a wildcard.

President Trump has criticized Democrats over their flip-flop tactics. In a Thursday tweet, the president pointed out “the radical left, do nothing Democrats said they wanted to rush everything through to the Senate” as a matter of national security.

The president went on to say they don’t want to “go fast anymore” and added they are “liars.”

He also slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and suggested she is trying to control proceedings in the Senate.

Meanwhile, House Democrats continue to withhold the articles of impeachment from the Senate.
