This GOP Senator Opposes Trump’s Impeachment

Republican Senator Tom Cotton is making his stance clear on Trump’s impeachment: He does not support it. The Arkansas Republican said in a statement he opposed impeachment proceedings because the Senate will not be able to begin the impeachment trial until after Trump has left office and does not believe that impeaching a former president aligns with the Constitution.

The Daily Wire reports:

“‘There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.’ Those words are as true today as when Abraham Lincoln spoke them,” Cotton said. “As I said last summer when mob violence gripped our streets, so I say again about the mob violence at our nation’s Capitol last week: those persons responsible should be held accountable in the courts to the full extent of the law.”

“The House has passed an article of impeachment against the president, but the Senate under its rules and precedents cannot start and conclude a fair trial before the president leaves office next week,” he continued. “Under these circumstances, the Senate lacks constitutional authority to conduct impeachment proceedings against a former president. The Founders designed the impeachment process as a way to remove officeholders from public office—not an inquest against private citizens. The Constitution presupposes an office from which an impeached officeholder can be removed.”

“Fidelity to the Constitution must always remain the lodestar for our nation. Last week, I opposed the effort to reject certified electoral votes for the same reason—fidelity to the Constitution—I now oppose impeachment proceedings against a former president,” the statement concluded. “Congress and the executive branch should concentrate entirely for the next week on conducting a safe and orderly transfer of power. After January 20, Congress should get on with the people’s business: improving our vaccination efforts, getting kids back to school, and getting workers back on the job.”

Last week Sen. Cotton announced that he does not support efforts from some Republicans to impeach President Trump. Yesterday, the House voted to impeach Trump a second time on the charge of insurrection. The political move made history by making President Trump the first president to ever be impeached twice.

Its time for a new party, one that is truly conservative in principles, constitutionality, lawfulness, and accountability. A movement grows and grows especially for patriotism, fairness, and rights. Freedom is desired by all people. Thats why they came to America, and now the last beacon of Freedom and Hope is vanishing under Socialism.

First, he DIDN’T “encourage” the storming of the capital. That is a lie, one of many told by enemies to the republic. He called for PEACEFUL protest, meaning just that. These misguided souls did what they did out of anger and a lack of personal control.
But, again, though they did the wrong thing in the moment, they acted against a stolen election, forced compliance to standards set using a virus as a political tool, censorship, and socialist over reach. We send our troops to other counties to stop these very things all the time. The time was wrong. But, I support Trump. And, I also support a full scale take back if the socialists continue to destroy our Constitutional Republic, which is exactly what they seem intent on doing, and the eventual result of their actions. This is the fault of the criminals who are illegally seizing control and censoring our dissent. Rebellion is a natural response to this. They fear this, because they are the criminals that need to be evicted. But, Trump is not at fault for my sentiments, either. In fact, I find him lacking and submissive on the issue.

Looks to me like the dems caused the violence by not so much as a twitch of an eye for the most part of last year. Only ones prosecuted were a couple trying to protect their own lives and property.

He really hasn’t been impeached though. That is like saying because the police arrested you and charged you, then you are guilty of the crime. But when the evidence is presented in court and you are found not guilty, then that should end it. The first impeachment witch hunt didn’t bring the goods against Trump because they didn’t exist. This one is even more lame! Trump didn’t incite any violence. Now the police are saying there is evidence that is was a planned attack – can anyone guess by who? If they impeach Trump for inciting the violence, then how many democrats should be impeached for their support of the riots that occurred earlier this year?

Technically, he was impeached and that’s all Pelosi cared about. Trump is in the Congressional Record now as having been the only president to be impeached twice. He was acquitted by the first trial and I have faith he’ll also be acquitted by the second trial.

Pelosi seeks headlines and hopes her name is revered in the Congressional Record. She’ll be denied the title of president remover and history will be unkind to her. Conviction following impeachment requires a two-thirds vote by the Senate. About 16 non-democrats would be needed to remove him.

Good for you Senator Cotton. There is way too much division in our country and the thought of the United States giving in to the hatred that Pelosi and others have for this President is unprecedented. They should be ashamed of themselves. Our country is more vulnerable now that at any time in our recent past and our enemies around the world are being emboldened by the insanity of the past 3 months.

Joe Biden, love him or not will be duly sworn in as our 46th President and the last thing to do on his first 100 days is deal with an unconstitutional trial in the US Senate with a PAST President.

The nation needs to heal, the people involved in the riots need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of our Nation’s laws and our 13,000 National Guardsmen should not be sleeping on the floor of the Capital.

Lastly, Congress and the Justice Department must continue to investigate the allegations against Hunter Biden, James Biden and “the Big Guy”. To not follow through with them would be a mockery of the mountain of evidence that has been uncovered relating to Ukraine and China dealings by the Biden family.

Trump is by far the best this country has ever had to support what republicans say they believe & yet his party failed him in so many ways.. even the stupid Obama Care – republicans were divided and never got it put away… how disgraceful… so go play ball with the democrats and let them walk all over you.. Republicans should object to everything that comes up, bring charges against every democrat they can find with slightest of anything if need be; oppose everything, threaten to bring impeachment charges again Biden and stick with them & keep it in the news day/night… if all of you do your job, the democrats will have a more challenging 4 yrs than Trump did.. and we at the grass roots will hid and watch you mealy mouth round/about until you will agree with and become a democrat in everything but name
