On Sunday, Fox News host Chris Wallace told acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney that a Republican that both knew very well believes there is now a 20 percent chance Trump is removed from office.
Wallace called this Republican “well-connected” and doubled down on the likelihood of increasing that Pres. Donald Trump is impeached and removed from office.
Wallace: “I talked to a very well-connected Republican in Washington this week, somebody whose name you would know well, who says that if the House votes to impeach and it gets to a trial in the Senate, there is now a 20 percent chance he believes — obviously, it’s just an estimate — now a 20 percent chance enough Republicans will vote with the Democrats to remove the president,”
Mulvaney: “Oh, that’s just absurd. This comment about a 20 percent chance, the person clearly doesn’t know what they’re talking about.”
Sen. Mitch McConnell, Majority Leader, informed his constituents and media that he would hold a trial against Pres. Trump, if the Democrat-controlled house votes to impeach the president.
“We intend to do our constitutional responsibility,” McConnell said.
Politico reported that such a trial could come by the end of the year, based on the current pace of politics, many political strategists believe a vote by the House to impeach the president could be just weeks away, most think by the end of October.
I am not alone when I say that I think it’s unlikely the Republican-controlled Senate would vote to remove Trump from office even though there is alleged chatter that Republicans, at least in private, are voicing opposition to Trump and keeping the door open to voting against him if the matter is brought to the Senate.
