While the majority of Republican US Senator’s will probably vote to acquit Donald Trump of the helping protester rip up the Capitol and cause serious harm to people….
The idea that Trump could actually try to run for President again is fading….
First…. Why would the guy ‘want’ to go thru this who process again?
Second….Why would America want such damaged good back after Joe Biden puts the country back together again?
The idea that ambitious Republicans would wait for years to let the guy come back is laughable….
The ones eyeing a 2024 run for the White House are embracing some of Trump’s agenda SERRATE from him….
And they will not have 2 impeachment’s and be fighting in the courts like Trump will be going ahead….
And they won’t have the Capitol protest/assaults in their resume….
And in the end?
Democrats WIIl have got their pound of flesh from the New York City Real Estate guy who did bad acting as an American President….
Senate Republicans, including those who do not plan to vote to convict former President Trump, say this week’s impeachment trial has effectively ended any chance of him becoming the GOP presidential nominee in 2024.
From the viewpoint of some Republican senators, the compelling case presented by House prosecutors carries a silver lining: It means they likely won’t have to worry about Trump running for president again in three years, while at the same time eroding his influence in party politics more generally.
Several Republican senators became irate watching videos of the violence and chaos inside the Capitol on Jan. 6, including footage of police officers being called “pigs” and “traitors” and one officer screaming as he was crushed by rioters battering a police line.
Interspersed with the traumatic scenes were clips of Trump urging his supporters to march to the Capitol, warning them “if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore” and telling them “we love you; you’re very special” shortly after the attack.
“It just makes you realize what an asshole Donald Trump is,” said one GOP senator after watching day two of the House managers’ presentation.
The lawmaker suggested that Democrats may ultimately help the GOP by sidelining Trump.
“Unwittingly, they are doing us a favor. They’re making Donald Trump disqualified to run for president” even if he is acquitted, the senator said.
Other Republican senators, even those who have indicated they will vote to acquit, say it would be a good thing if the impeachment trial helps distance the party from Trump, who has thoroughly dominated GOP politics over the past five years….
