Dec 12 - McConnell: I doubt any GOP senator will vote to impeach Trump

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Thursday that he doubts any Republican senators will vote to convict President Trump and remove him from office, and predicted some Democrats could also vote to acquit him.

Asked during an interview with Fox News's Sean Hannity if there he would be any GOP defections in the Senate, McConnell replied: "I doubt it."

"I doubt it. There's zero chance the president ... would be removed from office, and I'm hoping we'll have no defections at all," McConnell said.

Republicans hold 53 seats in the Senate. Because 67 votes would be needed to convict Trump and remove him from office, it's all but guaranteed that the president will ultimately be acquitted.

But there has been lingering speculation that at least one GOP senator could vote to convict Trump. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) grabbed headlines last week when he told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that he has talked to GOP senators who considering supporting impeachment but stressed "it’s a small list on one hand."

Most of the public spotlight is on Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Mitt Romney (R-Utah).

The three senators have been largely tightlipped about the constant stream of headlines about Trump's actions toward Ukraine and declined to speculate on the specifics of a Senate impeachment trial.

McConnell, however, argued that not only is he skeptical that a GOP senator would vote to convict Trump, but that he also believes they could pick up Democratic support to acquit him.

"It wouldn't surprise me if we got one or two Democrats. It looks to me over in the House, the Republicans seem to be solid and the Democrats seem to be divided," McConnell said.

Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who won reelection last year in a red state, and Doug Jones (D-Ala.), who is running for reelection next year in a Trump-won state, are two Democratic senators who are viewed as potential Democratic swing votes.

Manchin told CNN on Wednesday that he's "very much torn" about impeachment.

"I'm very much torn on it," he added. "I think it weighs on everybody.

The same old pasties that was yelling "Commie this, Commie that" when they were in their 20s are now the ones in bed with the enemy.

Who would have thought that "Cocaine" Mitch was evil.

Seems like his old opponent picked a weird reason to target him

Exactly we are officially no longer a democracy we have been hijacked by the Republicans. When the senate leader decides a verdict before the evidence is presented there is no due process.

And that's why this is all for nothing. The dems should have known the GOP wouldn't do sh*t. I want to know the Dems end game.

I believe their presentation of evidence was a gamble to garner some Republican support (highly unlikely) however I believe it really was to present evidence of corruption to undecided (Clinton hating) voters , who possibly helped swing the election

Expose vulnerable senators for 2020. Susan Collins stands out.

But worst case, I'd rather watch dems go through the motions if that's all it ends up being. Doing nothing would make them complicit.
