Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee said during an appearance on “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday that even “disappointed” Democratic leadership understands pushing to impeach President Trump will come at an electoral cost to the party.
“The report came out and there isn't there. It's not going to work. Few of them are still saying let's impeach. I think the smart set is looking back and saying there is nothing to prosecute. “
Lee adds that the reason the impeachment of Trump has no support in the U.S. Senate is because there’s no evidence that Trump committed impeachable wrongdoing.
“It's not there, one of the reasons it's not there is because there is no there there. There is no evidence, not even a scintilla of collusion,” Lee said.
