Another Senator Denounces Impeachment

As the House is set to send the article of impeachment to the Senate today another senator has made his stance clear on the second impeachment of Trump, and he thinks it’s a “moot point.” South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds announced that he firmly believes holding a second impeachment is ultimately a waste of time and resources. The Republican senator also noted the trial raises constitutional issues as well as will impede the Biden administration’s agenda.

Fox News reports:

In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Rounds addressed the subject by first asserting that impeachment is the constitutionally prescribed method for removing an official, not punishing one who is already gone.

“To begin with, I think it’s a moot point, because I think right now Donald Trump is no longer the president, he is a former president,” Rounds said. “The Constitution, and I think, and I know that there are other people out there that may disagree with me, but Article I Sections I think 6 and 7 specifically point out that you can impeach the president, and it does not indicate that you can impeach someone who is not in office. So I think it’s a moot point and I think it’s one that they would have a very difficult time in trying to get done within the Senate.”

Rounds went on to say that while the Senate is bogged down with carrying out a trial, they will be using up time that could instead be spent on other tasks such as holding hearings and votes to confirm President Biden’s Cabinet picks. So far, the Senate has confirmed Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.

“I know that the Biden administration would love to have more of their Cabinet in place, there’s a number of Republicans who also feel the same way,” Rounds said. “We should allow this president the opportunity to form his Cabinet, and to get that in place as quickly as possible. If we start working on an impeachment, which looks like we’re going to end up doing, we’ve only got a couple of weeks here in which to actually work through and allow this president an opportunity to form a Cabinet. A lot of us would prefer to maybe work through those issues instead.”

Rounds followed the example from a few other Republican senators which have raised questions and concerns regarding a second impeachment trial. Over the weekend, Florida senator Marco Rubio also denounced the impeachment and called it “counterproductive” for the nation.

What kind of fools evict someone who is gone over a month before they get around to it. If there is any possible way an impeachment would delay or impede the Biden agenda, that would be awesome with me.

The real enemy is Pelosi controlled by her extreme hatred for President Trump. She should be impeached along with her demon minions. Then followed by treasonous joe and commie Harris. Our country must be free of these traitors.

It’s coming. Jesus will be back soon and I predict he’s going to have a tough conversation with the ol’ battleax. And it won’t be in private-we’ll all get to see what He has to say to her when the time comes.

The demonrats have incited the insurrection, supporting and praising Antifa BLM riots, and therefore, per their own grounds, need to be impeached for inciting riots and insurrection.

Sure she hates him, as do many other establishment politicians. President Trump exposed them for what they are, charlatans and opportunists who have enriched themselves and their families for, in some cases, generations.

Actually, Pelosi’s extreme hatred is masking her sexual tension for President Trump. And, then throw in Chuck U. Schumer’s comment about erections, and what you’ve got is democratic leadership hung up on sex, isn’t it?

The real thing for Pelosi is fear that Trump will finish draining the swamp and that would have happened if Trump had more time to determine the people of the swamp and kick them out. Some of the swamp dwellers were hidden and actually part of his support group. He is finding out who some of those are now.

Republicans better be aware of whom they’re confirming for joe. They should slow down the process. After all, isn’t that what the other side did for President Trump?
Call and E-mail your state’s people in both houses. They need to hear from us.

The demented, drunken pelosi has let the genie out of the bottle with her impeachment scams. She’s cheapened the process to the point that if the Speaker doesn’t like what a president says, she/he can just impeach them? The first one was a politically fueled scam that I’m still waiting for her to tell us just what the IMPEACHABLE charge was. The same with this abomination that she and her baby killing democrats are trying to dump on the country again.

I was just saying essentially the same thing as you. She has reduced Impeachment to the same basement level as the Emmys, Nobel, Oscars, and every other notable ceremony (not to mention the “virtual” Inauguration…meaningless ceremonies about absolutely nothing…

They may have been threatened and they are afraid now. Not the first time. He riled up the masses several times already and as a Republican, I am ashamed of him. He deserves impeachment and conviction.

As a matter of law, individuals who promote peaceful protest (as video tapes show Trump did) are not held accountable for acts by any of those who show up and do violence. This was the way organizers of BLM “peaceful protests” were held blameless even though their “peaceful protests” repeatedly turned violent for many months and did billions of dollars in damages to many cities. Under the doctrine “Equal protection under the Law” now former president Trump is likewise to be held innocent. But it appears such things are unimportant to House Democratic majority members when they ignored all evidence to the contrary and rushed to vote for impeachment yet again. And the nation’s propaganda apparatus, posing as main stream media, indoctrinates an army of useful idiots to support the miscarriage of justice.

Impeachment version 3 is not about punishing wrong doing, it is about making sure Trump cannot run for president again in 4 years after Biden has assured a Trump victory by the damage Biden will inflict on the USA for the next 4 years.

Red China is already escalating their hostility against Taiwan (where much of the world’s semiconductors are manufactured, including the ones used in control systems by our military.) Previous incursions into Taiwan’s air space was with reconnaissance aircraft only. Over the weekend, these incursions included several nuclear capable heavy bombers and fighter escorts as well as antisubmarine aircraft. Coincidence this happened only 3 days after Biden’s inauguration? I think not. China has great influence over Biden through his son Hunter who has billion dollar deals with China. China feels emboldened in their regional hostilities with a friendly Joe Biden promising to “reengage” in friendly relations with China despite their hostile actions in all of the South China Sea, which were denounced by the World Court.

I too was tasked with doing a difficult job though on a 1/1,000,000th scale of what Trump was doing. An army of useful idiots were indoctrinated to not only hate me but also my young wife and even my children, the youngest not yet 1 years old. It can be difficult to get things done in that atmosphere, but I persevered, eventually winning a 5 year battle. My conduct during those years was not comparable to a St. Mother Teresa standard. Successful wars cannot be fought that way. So no, I wasn’t mister nice guy, no let’s all get together and sing Kumbaya. Several careers were ended but not before a lot of damage was inflicted on my family and myself. There are few people willing to put themselves and their families through such ordeals. Is there another one capable and willing out there? I fear not. God help us.

Diane, sweetie, Trump is now a private citizen & no one can impeach a private citizen. He wasn’t impeached the first time as it wasn’t voted to do so. They just get with the media & make all the 95% followers believe whatever they say. Constitution states a President cannot be impeached a second time. Trump never riled up anyone to do anything except be against those who support BLM, ANTIFA & those who are always riled up, doing things like burning buildings, killing innocent, destroying cities, businesses, etc. Trump has never promoted any kind of violence. Little, jealous people like yourself can’t handle someone draining the REAL swamp & exposing all their crimes & maybe you have something hidden in the swamp & that is why you are supporting the criminals.

I think the democrats want to impeach President Trump because they know he really won the election and if they investigate and find fraud and Trump is still the lawful president then he will already be impeached.
