The Democrats’ push to remove President Trump accelerated with the House voting to lay out the procedures for their impeachment investigation.
Congressional Democrats can’t afford any stumbles.
But now Chuck Schumer suffered this massive defeat at the worst time for impeachment.
It only takes a simple majority vote in the House of Representatives to pass articles of impeachment.
The real fight is in the Senate where it requires a two-thirds vote to convict the President, meaning at least 20 Republican Senators would have to cross the aisle and join the Democrats.
No Republican Senator actually is on the record favoring impeaching and removing the President from office, so the fake and corrupt news media is always sniffing around for any slight daylight between Senate Republicans and the President that so-called “journalists” can play up as the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.
The latest test of the Senate Republicans was Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer pushing a Congressional Review Act vote on Trump administration regulations to break Obamacare’s stranglehold on American healthcare.
Democrats objected to the Trump administration granting individual states the freedom to slip free of the costly Obamacare mandates on what insurance plans must cover in order to bring down costs.
Under the Congressional Review, it only takes a simple majority vote to pass a resolution rolling back a targeted regulation.
Donald Trump would veto any Congressional Review Act resolution so passing it through the Senate would be a symbolic victory.
But the fake news media claimed Democrats won the 2018 midterms primarily because of healthcare.
And with Republicans defending Senate seats on purple states like Arizona, North Carolina, Iowa and Maine, some thought Republicans would break with the President and join the Democrats in supporting Obamacare.
Pundits would take that as a sign that Republican senators were not afraid to distance themselves from the President and that could carry over to an impeachment trial.
But like every other fantasy the fake news floated about the GOP getting ready to ditch President Trump, these were also lies.
The Democrats’ resolution went down to an embarrassing 52-43 defeat with only Maine RINO Senator Susan Collins voting with Schumer and the Democrats.
This was the second vote that showed the Republican Party was united behind President Trump.
In the House of Representatives, Republicans unanimously voted against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s resolution authorizing the procedures Democrats proposed would govern their impeachment witch hunt.
The fake and corrupt news media is trying to will the story of Republicans breaking with Donald Trump into existence.
There is no evidence this is the case.
If anything, the “facts on the ground” indicate Republicans are more united behind President Trump in the face of this impeachment witch hunt than ever before.
That should dash any dreams on the left of Republicans in the Senate voting to convict President Trump.
