The Senate is about to hold its second impeachment trial of Donald Trump.
America has never seen anything like this before.
And now Rand Paul made this scary prediction about the Senate impeaching Donald Trump.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul warned Senate Republicans that voting with the Democrats to convict Donald Trump on the House of Representatives article impeachment would “destroy the Republican Party.”
“They will destroy the Republican party… if leadership is complicit with an impeachment, or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Senator Paul told Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
Senator Paul’s note of caution came after reports leaked to the New York Times that Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell was considering voting to convict Trump and that if McConnell took that course of action enough Republicans could follow and hand Donald Trump the political death penalty.
Paul explained that he condemned the rioting, but that the Democrats went about impeachment in such a partisan way that the whole process was not toxic.
“Look, I didn’t agree with the [Capitol] fight that happened last week, and I voted against overturning the election, but at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion, [and] if Republicans go along with it, it’ll destroy the party,” Senator Paul added.
In the article of impeachment Democrats cited a clause in the 14th Amendment meant to block former Confederate officers from holding office after supporting insurrection against the United States.
If Senate Republicans go along with impeaching Donald Trump on these grounds they are opening the door for Democrats to turn around and use this as the justification to expel them from Congress.
Senator Paul predicted that if GOP leadership marched along with the Democrats on impeachment the Republicans would no longer exist as a viable political party because Paul believes one third of GOP voters would quit the party forever over an impeachment betrayal.
“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Senator Paul also stated that. “This isn’t about, anymore, the Electoral College, this is about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”
Some establishment RINOs like Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger would be fine with that.
They want a GOP that loses but that the fake news media claims does so with honor.
Cheney, Kinzinger and the rest of the pro-impeachment Republicans are more concerned with serving the establishment and the donor class than protecting the interests and values of their voters.
This is a recipe for a Republican Party civil war that will fracture the party in two and guarantee the Democrats dominate the 2022 and 2024 elections.
