Schiff Claims Trump Is Ready To Sell Out Alaska To Russians,
Lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) continued to make the argument for removing President Trump Monday despite the probability of it actually happening being Wednesday close to zero.
With nothing to lose, Schiff engaged in some hyperbolic rhetoric and warned Trump could “offer Alaska to the Russians” in exchange for election support.
According To Adam Schiff:
If abuse is not impeachable…then a whole range utterly unacceptable conduct in a president would now be beyond reach
Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently and leave Jared Kushner to run the country, delegating to him the decision whether to go to war.
Schiff Claims Trump Is Ready To Sell Out Alaska To Russians If Not Removed
Adam Schiff gave his closing argument and all but fell flat as most Senators have already decided how they will vote on Trump impeachment.
The Democrats in no way have 67 votes to remove Trump, in fact, they may lose a few Dem Senators who are rumored to be seriously considering voting to acquit.
Doug Jones and Joe Manchin are two votes the Democrats cannot afford to lose. In Schiff’s closing he all but begged at least one GOP Senator to vote to convict in his desperate hopes to avoid a partisan impeachment.
Sadly, Schiff forgot the House did show some bipartisanship in voting against the articles when a few Dem Reps broke with Pelosi and Schiff.
It looks like the same thing is happening in the Senate so Joe Manchin is trying to find a compromise – a toothless censure vote.
Trump won’t go for it so Manchin and the rest will have to take a tough vote.
According to Report From Fox News:
Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, speaking on the Senate floor Monday, urged his colleagues to formally censure President Trump — saying that while the president’s dealings with both Ukraine and Congress were “simply wrong,” he was “struggling” with whether to vote to convict and remove him from office.
At the same time, Manchin also condemned the Republican-controlled Senate for failing to call additional witnesses in the impeachment trial, saying “history will judge the Senate harshly” for failing its constitutional duty to “protect our democracy.”
“I see no path to the 67 votes [requried to convict and remove] President Trump,” Manchin, who represents a deeply pro-Trump state, asserted. “However, I do believe a bipartisan majority of this body would vote to censure this president.”
A censure resolution has no practical effect and serves as a legislative rebuke to the sitting president.
Saying the decision of whether to remove Trump from office was a “grave” matter that has “weighed heavily” on him, Manchin noted he has “listened carefully” to both sides of the issue — and that he remains undecided.
