All of the democrat senators and these seven RINOs voted to convict the real president Trump on bullsh*t charges…all fifty-seven have sacrificed their viability as legislators have furthermore been derelict in their duties of upholding their oath to the country and the Constitution of the United States. In my opinion, every single one of them is a traitor and should be treated as such.
President Donald Trump was acquitted in the second witch hunt impeachment trial on Saturday. But it was not a strictly party line vote. No, some Republican senators voted with the Democrats to convict Trump.
This list is a who’s who of who’s a RINO. They decided to say not only that Trump “incited” violence, a spurious charge currently being used to drive all conservative thought off the web, but to say that it is fine that the Democrats used underhanded methods, doctored videos, and outright lies, not to mention ridiculous stunts, in their effort to get one more lick in.
Here they are, in alphabetical order of terribleness:
Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina
Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana
Sen. Susan Collins of Maine
Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah
Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska
Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.
Fox News collected their “explanations” for their votes.
“Our Constitution and our country is more important than any one person. I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty,” Cassidy said.
“After careful consideration of the respective counsels’ arguments, I have concluded that President Trump is guilty of the charge made by the House of Representatives,” said Romney, who also voted to convict Trump on a separate charge a year ago during the Ukraine impeachment.
“I do not make this decision lightly, but I believe it is necessary,” Burr said. “By what he did and by what he did not do, President Trump violated his oath of office to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
“On election night 2014, I promised Nebraskans I’d always vote my conscience even if it was against the partisan stream,” Sasse said, adding, “I cannot go back on my word, and Congress cannot lower our standards on such a grave matter, simply because it is politically convenient. I must vote to convict.”
But don’t give too much credit to people who voted against convicting him, either. Some, like Mitch McConnell, were just being politically expedient. Mitch turned right around and gave a speech saying Trump was guilty of everything, even though he’d just voted to acquit.
Now that is pure politics. Swampy as can be.
Write these names down, remember them.
They are not fit to continue serving in office in the Republican party.
Actually….I feel like we need a new party altogether.
I don’t really want to be a “Republican”.
I’m a Trumplican.
But I want nothing to do with the RINOs.
President Trump was acquitted today in a historic SECOND sham impeachment trial.
He soundly defeated the action, as the Democrat House Managers suddenly caved in a surprise turn of events after Trump’s team put Nancy Pelosi on the witness list.
Never EVER vote for these people again!
Primary them, get them OUT!
The Senate voted to acquit former President Trump of inciting the January 6 riot at the Capitol in his second impeachment trial. Seven Republicans joined all Democrats in voting “Guilty” for a majority of 57 votes – but Democrats failed to get the two-thirds majority needed to convict.
The Republicans who joined with the Democrats were: Richard Burr of North Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Trump issued a statement Saturday afternoon thanking his legal team, as well as the Republicans in the Senate who found him not guilty and GOP House members who voted against the article of impeachment last month. He did not acknowledge the riot in his statement.
“This has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country,” Mr. Trump said. “No president has ever gone through anything like it, and it continues because our opponents cannot forget the almost 75 million people, the highest number ever for a sitting president, who voted for us just a few short months ago.”
While the outcome had long seemed inevitable, the trial was briefly thrown into chaos on Saturday morning when the Senate voted to allow witnesses after a late-night statement from a congresswoman about a conversation with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on January 6. After a two-hour recess — with Republicans incensed over the surprise vote — the Senate ultimately reached a deal and instead read Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beulter’s statement into the record.
Herrera Beutler came forward on Friday night and recalled that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told her about a phone call with Mr. Trump. According to Herrera Beutler, McCarthy told her that when he spoke to Mr. Trump that day and asked him to “publicly and forcefully” call off the Capitol assault, “the president initially repeated the falsehood that it was antifa that had breached the Capitol.”
