This week, much of our political plight will more closely resemble mathematics than it will appear as governance.
That’s because we are now in the midst of a possible impeachment of the President of the United States, where every vote in both the House and the Senate will be hotly contested.
At this juncture, it is certain that the Senate would not convict President Trump, which would lead to his removal from office. There are just far too many loyal republicans within that chamber to make any other assumption.
But, according to the husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, that may not be the case for long.
George Conway, husband to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and a frequent critic of President Trump, on Wednesday predicted that Republicans in the Senate would break with the president and vote for impeachment if the House votes to impeach.
Conway tweeted that Republican senators would hide their decision to vote against the president until the last possible minute on the issue.
“I agree with this. There may be Republican senators who won’t say a word until the moment they say ‘guilty’ when the roll is called at the end of an impeachment trial,” he tweeted, responding to a political commentator who argued that Republican senators would vote to impeach the president because many “privately hate” Trump.
Conway’s long history of attempting to derail the President has been fraught with wild claims. One of his most egregious insinuations was that the Donald Trump was mentally unfit to serve as Commander in Chief, and should be removed from office using the power of the 25th Amendment.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
