GOP Senator Open to Censuring Trump

Office of Senator John Thune, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons

Republican Senator John Thune is reportedly open to censuring the former president Trump. The number two Republican senator indicated that there are multiple proposals circulating but noted that any such proposal would have to be “effective” if he were to jump on board.

The Hill reports:

“I know there are a couple of resolutions out there. … I’ve seen a couple of resolutions at least that I think could attract some support,” Thune told reporters.

Pressed if he was saying the resolutions could get support from him, he added: “Yeah.”

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) has drafted a censure resolution that would also include language from the 14th Amendment that he hopes could be used to bar Trump from future office.

Thune, however, appeared to indicate that a resolution that also works in the 14th Amendment was largely a non-starter.

While Thune commented he doesn’t believe Kaine’s push to use the 14th Amendment to prohibit Trump from holding office again won’t gain steam, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer left the possibility open. Ultimately, it will depend on the outcomes of the Senate impeachment trial.

If the Republican Party is to advance it must thoroughly clean house and toughen up on membership. No more Never Trumpers, no more RINO’s, no more embarrassments like Mitt Romney and Ben Sass. No more airing of party private business on cable and MSM to glean points with the Democrats. Democrats win because they demand party loyalty while Republicans seem to be going in all directions. Perhaps a name change or a new party with a slightly different agenda could be in order. Democrats have turned the word Republican into another forbidden name and will hang the tragedy at the Capitol around our necks like a Scarlet Letter.

I agree with everything you said with exception of a new party or a party name change. That would be a good way to split the conservatives and insure democrat wins until everyone came together. This could take a long time. The Republican Party only needs to clean out the Rhinos if possible. This is hard to do in a states like Maine, Nevada, Pennsylvania, North Carolina but not impossible. It should be more easily done in Alaska and Louisiana. And if fraud could be eliminated, Arizona, Michigan, Georgia, and a number of other states could be flipped.

The WHOLE CIRCUS is demeaning and disgraceful. JUDGEMENTAL are all the Democrats, and scared to death, that Trump will RETURN. Their whole lively hood rests on Trump not being able to run again. They have to do all they can to keep him out. I am sick to know that some of the Republicans that say they are for the People, have turned their backs on their sworn duty. The “Rhino’s” that the republicans have become, do their own bidding, not the peoples. 2022, will start the HOUSE CLEANING and it will continue on into 2024. There will also be some CLEANING in the Senate. These 4 years ahead, will make it clear just HOW bad life will be. Hang on Conservatives, and keep the faith, for we are going to return, with better voices and leaders, then what we have had for FAR TOO LONG… WE NEED TERM LIMITS. Let’s get that don’t too, in these next 4 years…. God Bless America and keep her whole. God Bless President Trump and keep him in good strong health.

I am tired of donating to establishment Republicans so I have not donated to anyone except Marjorie Taylor Green, Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan to date since the election.

Censure Trump for what, the House Managers proved they want to submit their will instead of the will of the American people and eliminate their opponent for political reasons. The House managers tried to implement their meaning into the President’s words, he is the one who said to go patriotically and peacefully and make your voices heard. They are ignoring the 1st amend and Right of Due process. The Left said the same words to go Fight, including the Democrats remarks that were played in the videos today….and fight Antifa certainly did by burning down businesses in Portland, Twin Cities, Seattle, and Kenosha.

While Congress is trying to impeach President Trump, Biden is signing executive orders, that are destroying America and not one of them seems to care. President Trump did not incite that riot. If you were all interested in America and it’s citizens, you would be stopping this impeachment travesty. stop the influx of illegals, and stopping his trillions of dollars spending on electric cars, and Medicare for all, designed to cost Americans trillions of dollars. and get rid of the sham Obamacare. him from adding more and more Americans to the poverty level, while giving illegals all the benefits we have worked for. Leave our gun rights alone, and remove Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, Schitf, Nadler, Waters and the rest of the Socialists, Marxists, and Communist from office and try them for Treason. They have one goal to take President Trump out of politics, so he won’t have any influence and taking complete control of the country, gaining more wealth and power for themselves, while destroying everything good, America has ever stood for.
