President Trump is on his way to becoming only the third President to ever be slapped with articles of impeachment by the House of Republicans, and the first in two decades to face the ultimate scornful power of the lower chamber of Congress.
That’s no skin off the President’s back, however, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has assured him time and again that there is nothing to fear; the Republican-controlled Senate will absolutely vote to acquit Trump, and they could do so in a swift and expeditious manner, should they choose.
President Trump knows this, and you can tell it by his nonchalance in his words on the subject.
“I’ll do whatever I want. Look, there is — we did nothing wrong,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. “So I’ll do long or short. I’ve heard Mitch [McConnell], I’ve heard Lindsey [Graham]. I think they are very much in agreement on some concept. I’ll do whatever they want to do, it doesn’t matter.”
During a Thursday night appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told the host that his “hope is that it will be a shorter process rather than a lengthy process.” McConnell also made clear that he was acting in lockstep with the White House.
“Everything I do during [the impeachment process], I’m coordinating with White House counsel,” McConnell said. “There will be no difference between the president’s position and our position as to how to handle this.”
The Democrats’ and their “somber”, “prayerful” impeachment apparently don’t stand a chance against this sort of cool and collected confidence.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
