Senate GOP Leadership Warns Trump: Any White House Attempt to Dismiss Impeachment Charges Will Fail…

They are called “decepticons” for a reason. McConnell is king, and Cornyn, Thune and Barasso are his praetorian guards.  {Go Deep}

Senator John Cornyn (TX), a key member of the Senate GOP leadership; and a member of the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence committees; warns the White House that a vote to immediately dismiss articles of impeachment and avoid a trial won’t work.

“There’s some people talking about trying to stop the bill, dismiss charges basically as soon as they get over here. I think that’s not going to happen. That would require 51 votes,” Cornyn told reporters Wednesday. “I think it would be hard to find 51 votes to cut the case off before the evidence is presented.”

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A top Senate Republican, John Cornyn, said on Wednesday that should the U.S. House of Representatives vote to impeach President Donald Trump, he doubts a motion in the Senate to immediately dismiss the charges would succeed.

Cornyn, who spent years as the Senate’s no. 2 Republican, said such a motion would not receive the 51 votes necessary in the Republican-controlled Senate to pass. He said he was confident that ultimately, a vote in the Senate to remove Trump from office would fail. (read more)

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, is one Republican senator who previously hinted at the possibility of advancing a motion to dismiss the articles of impeachment. However, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told GOP colleagues during a lunch meeting last month any motion to dismiss would have to come from the president’s defense team after the impeachment managers deliver the articles to the Senate.

…Senate Republicans, even though they control 53 seats, don’t think there would be enough unity within their conference to dismiss charges against Trump before the prosecutors and defense have a chance to lay out their arguments and senators have a chance to ask questions and deliberate. (link)

One of the problems in the Senate trial is the participation of the SSCI within the network of interests working to eliminate candidate Trump and then President Trump from office.

SSCI Chairman Richard Burr doesn’t go on an political targeting expedition like that without the approval of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.   Yes, it really is that simple.

To remind ourselves how Minority and Majority Senator McConnell took down the threat of the Tea Party revisit these old articles CNN Part I and CNN Part II  both showcase how McConnell works.   Then do some research on how McConnell worked with Haley Barbour in Mississippi [SEE HERE].

The Tea Party was a risk to McConnell in 2010-2014 the same way MAGA coalition is to McConnell in 2016-2020.   Take nothing for granted.

      It would not be smart to cut it off without a trial. A trial is good for us and for Trump. Schiff is depending on the Rs complaining (correctly) that he ran a circus and therefore he believes that the Rs will stop it fast based on that. It is exactly what he wants.

      The last thing Schiff wants is for this to move into a process that he can no longer control. Schiff would be a fact witness (he’d be toast), so would Ciaramella. We could parade one after another of the Spygate crooks up there, anyone that had anything to do with Ukraine. It would be devastating for the Dems.

      No, I want this to go one of two ways- 1) The Dems chicken out and drop it (it might happen) 2) We have a full trial that shows the whole picture. The Rs will support Trump or they are toast for years, none of us is going to help them. They know it.

      If the Rs just drop it in the Senate that’s Schiff’s IDEAL scenario. He would then say that Trump was correctly impeached and the Rs were corrupt and partisan and protected Trump. The truth is on our side.

All the Dem (and Rino) corruption can be fully described and put in the permanent historical record. The IG horowitz report(s) wil be out, and Durham will (hopefully) have indicted coup plotters, at least some of whom are the same, or aligned.

        The necessary publicity will also give PJT supporters full time to advise and promise the GOPe that if PDJT is impeached, no republican will be elected in 2020.

        They don’t need ALL Republicans to vote for it. Just a few, 20 or so. Surely the Turtle could bend some retiring Senators and we can count on the Romneys, Murkowskis, Collinses et al for the yes vote. And then Mitch can come out and posture that “The majority of Republicans opposed it, it was just those few that voted for it.” Thereby giving the GOPe cover. Mission accomplished at the cost of a handful of Senators. You think Mitch and Company would turn down that deal? They don’t want the majority anyway, Republicans hate being the majority. That only means they have to be responsible for something. When they’re in the minority, the can more comfortably go with the flow, while claiming that “We’re only the minority, there’s not much we can do.”

    Strategy be damned. The fact that the Decepticons like McConnell and Cornyn have not spoken out about the sham clown show in the House should be enough to tell the President’s base who supports him in the Senate. They know they can stab Trump in the back and not pay a price because our alternative is far more bleak with a Dem President and Congress than with the Rinos. They are playing the long game with the voters. They don’t give a damn about our President nor his agenda. All they care about is preserving their power. I hope the first thing the President does if reelected is fire Elaine Chao’s ass and send it on a silver platter to McConnell’s office.

        We can make ourselves heard if our elected DC critters ignore our email and phone calls and take out our President Trump.

        We might consider the alternate rally points to be the state capitals of the Republican senators who voted against President Trump.

  27. Personally, I see that we have no choice but to file Trump v. US House of Representatives, taking it immediately and directly to the US Supreme Court.

    Because, IMHO, this entire thing is Unconstitutional to its face. The Founders of our country clearly anticipated that impeachment would one day be used to demote the Presidency to a token who would rule “at the pleasure of Congress.” They were extremely aware of the evils of the “Bill of Attainder,” which over the centuries of history have been used to execute many thousands of people. They were extremely careful to apportion the “separation of powers” in their brand-new Constitution, and they wrote very extensively about their intentions.

    None of this is important to Congressmen who are dead-set to protect their institutional lawlessness (in Ukraine and elsewhere), and we should not assume that Senators would actually feel any different. “All of them, without exception, are corrupt.”

    So, IMHO, the only way forward is to directly confront this entire pan-Congressional conspiracy in the only remaining venue which is not Congressional. You must assert the separation of powers. You must assert that this proceeding is – as the Founders anticipated – an overglorified “Bill of Attainder.” You must assert that “impeachment” is not a weapon. That the Executive Branch of our Government does not serve at the pleasure of the [corrupt …] Legislature.

  28. Anyone who thought POTUS was going to be delivered into Beijing Mitch’s Star Chamber without set-traps to convict and remove him haven’t been correctly weighing the ferocity of the war on Trump. This is the forum they’ve wanted him in for years. If he gets out of this ‘alive’ then it’s an unimpeded sprint to Election Day. They may play games with the Present provision to protect certain vulnerable RINOs. But if there was ever a time the Godfather will be calling on Bonasera to dress up the corpse it’ll be this time. What’s bigger than this? Nothing.

    They’ll weather the civic unrest. They’ve been shutting down the alt-media since the run-up to the midterms. I cannot fathom a rationale where they will NOT take the ‘kill shot’. The Senate well is Trump’s Dealey Plaza. Schiff is doing a poor job of furnishing the bullet. In the end this is not about MERIT, but about PROCESS. They own the process. They’ll make it fit the desired outcome, even if it has to work overtime. The media can make anything walk on water for half the country.

    Impeachment is a political process that only borrows legal language and trappings. The RINOs hate these epic moments when they have to show their true allegiances. They try to avoid them.However the immense power behind them will not be sympathetic to their individual political plights. They will try to protect them, but not at the cost of a missed shot.

    I wish I could see it otherwise. But the calculus seems pretty dead-set.

    ““There’s some people talking about trying to stop the bill, dismiss charges basically as soon as they get over here. I think that’s not going to happen. That would require 51 votes,” Cornyn told reporters Wednesday. “I think it would be hard to find 51 votes to cut the case off before the evidence is presented.””,/i>

    This is very probably simply being realistic as Romney would most likely bring at least 2 other rats with him.

    any “articles of impeachment” brought without the benefit of Constitutional Protections–i.e. The Rules of Evidence used throughout our ‘Justice” system–should be dismissed out of hand. There should be exactly zero consideration of such false and unconstitutionally generated charges. If McConnell cannot see this truth and act accordingly, he should swing.
    BTW, where the heck is the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee? isn’t he supposed to be calling the ‘whistleblower’ and Schiff and his staffers and the IG and Brennan etc up to the Senate and kicking their asses up and down the hallways? WTF?

    I don’t take anything for granted and I am concerned this will move forward and corrupt scum of the earth Romney will publicly and privately work to get a coalition to vote against Trump w McConnells private approval.

    Open borders Bush puppet Cornyn is a disgrace to the state of Texas. I Wish Gohmert would run for his senate seat bc I think there’s a good chance he’s win it.

    I refuse to watch MSM news on this and am relying on Sundance and Webb’s analysis along with a random commenter here and there. I’m Th awful for honesty and solid analysis here. Thank you Sundance.

    If they are tied up with an impeachment trial will they have time for a confirmation hearing for Ginsburg’s replacement? I think the confluence of impeachment, SCOTUS confirmation, presidential election, and Durham frog marching members of the prior administration to prison might be the tipping point. Stock up on ammo.

    Based on the weak tea presented today I suspect the Dems will declare the investigation concluded at the end of the public hearings and then, more in sorrow than in anger, vote a motion of censure against the Bad Orange Man. They will say that while impeachment is merited it would be too disruptive. The media will eat it up and the danger of an actual trial with actual rules and witnesses will be avoided.

      Yep. Censure is Piglosi’s escape route. She can dress it up with all kinds of justification, for the good of the country, blah blah blah. So they vote to censure VVVSGPDJT, thereby securing his reelection. Fine. Good. Bring it.

      Im not sure that will happen. The dims, if they have a few brain cells, should be aware of the violent portion of their base that will only settle with Trumps head delivered on a platter. If that were not to happen, I think the BIG blue cities will suffer the consequences with major riots, etc.

      Since the can of worms has been opened,nanzi needs a scapegoat, and one way or the other, the senate repubs will provide that for her.

    Consider this; As of this moment there are 5 Dem Senators who are Presidential candidates in 2020. Somehow I don’t think they are going to want to be tied up in a BS trial while their competitors aren’t so encumbered. And, considering the Dems still think Biden running for office makes him immune to justice for some bizarre reason…. just how fair is it for 5 people with direct conflicts of interest having a vote on impeachment of their opponent?

  42. The only hope I have in Mitch is that he wants to be re-elected in 2020. He is such a weasel that if he could manipulate impeachment and look innocent he would.
    We have to get the message to Mitch that he will be ditched if he allows PDJT to be impeached and make him believe it. How to do that I don’t know. But I’m sure someone does.

      “How to do that I don’t know.”

      The day that The Articles are delivered to The Senate, VSGPDJT summons Murkowski, Collins, Romney, and their boss, The Turle, to The Oval for a “frank discussion”. At that point VSGPDJT presents the following:

      “You may not like my policies, and you may not like me personally. But if you buy into this Constitutional Farce and vote to impeach me, you can be ASSURED that I will end each of your political careers, and all the Spoils Of Power that they entail, within the next calendar year. My policies have decimated the economy of the largest country on Earth. The World Economy is eating out of my hand. Millions of Americans fervently support me, and 10’s of thousands at a time attend my political rallies. If you want to play politics, we can play politics. But just remember: the deck is stacked against you.”

      And then you offer them a slice of chocolate cake and a cup of coffee.

      Any RINO and vulnerable Dem Senator who votes for removal will find themselves in a Political Sh*t Storm in 2020. If Trump is actually convicted by The Senate, the Republican Party as we know it will cease to exist, and you can bank on that. As it was, the aforementioned Lil’ Ol’ Tea Party movement was a distinct threat to the D.C. Power Structure. And that was “just” a bunch of folks that wanted to reform the system and redefine D.C.’s interpretation of “conservatism”. On the other hand: impeachment conviction would be the realization of a literal coup… and that will not end well on many levels.

    Have the vote anyway and if there are not 51 then we know exactly who to get rid of if they are not already stepping down.

    Accountability people, you go against President Trump and the wishes of your voters then you need to be publicly exposed and you need to start looking for another job.

      Yes. And if it gets to the senate, all that comes over are the charges. What evidence do the dems have that would even be admissible? None of the hearsay, none of the opinions, not even the hurt feelings! They might well not be able to present a single thing as this is a criminal trial in the senate with all legal trial requirements.

    If we could trust Senate leaders to let anti-Trump crimes by the cabal of accusers be exposed then a trial would be great. It would destroy the Democrats and boost Trump and the Republican party in general, but not ALL Republicans and there is the rub.

    Exposure would bring down the Senate leaders who will control any hearing and they are willing to destroy America rather than face their shame, turning a situation that ought to be an easy win for a party that controls two arms of government into a minefield. God protect our great President Trump.

    One bright possibility it seems to me is that Trump could sue Congress, depending on the precise articles of impeachment, on grounds that policy disagreements over the use of his Article II powers cannot be considered any kind of crime or misdemeanor, any more than Congress can pass laws that try to abridge his Article II powers as established by prior constitutional jurisprudence.

    This is what the Democrats did to Governor Perry in Texas: prosecuting him on grounds that he had abused his powers under the state constitution, meaning they were second guessing his use of powers that according to the constitution they had no say over, as the Texas Supreme Court ultimately ruled.

    Impeachment may be political rather than criminal but Congress still cannot define something as a crime that, under separation of powers doctrine, they have no constitutional power to define as a crime.

    Such a gambit by Trump might allow the case against impeachment to be aired before reaching the Senate. It would be request for a pre-trial stay until the issue of the constitutionality of charges could be ruled on by the Supremes.

    Wouldn’t that give Chief Justice John “my job is to defend the Court, not the Constitution” Roberts a heart attack. Lol.
