Well, it looks like Rand paul ace worked.
They had the vote and rand proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Dems do not have the votes to convict President Trump and now they and all of us know it. So this impeachment is a pointless sham (like the last one, but even worse).
Rand Paul's point of order to dismiss impeachment case results in 45 votes in support of the dismissal and 55 votes against dismissal.
The good news is this almost certainly represents the vote on impeachment itself. So impeachment will fail. pic.twitter.com/btBXZJC6B0

And now, people are calling for Mitch to step down.
After that impeachment vote today Senator McConnell must be removed from GOP leadership.
What an absolute waste of time this has all been.
He has been a complete disaster for the party and has no idea what he’s doing (see also Georgia runoff & $2k check debacle).

And these are the 5 GOP traitors who must be relentlessly hounded and then primaried before when the time comes:
Five GOP senators vote with Dems, rejecting Sen Paul's argument that impeachment trial is unconstitutional: Collins
Murkowski Romney Sasse Toomey

Rand is officially done with the Democrat’s shenanigans.
He’s made it clear that he plans to spearhead an investigation with his fellow Republicans into the inconsistencies in the 2020 election and now he’s making a bold move on Dems impeachment efforts.
He’s now planning to hold a vote on the legality of Dems pursuing an impeachment trial on an American citizen.
I object to this unconstitutional sham of an “impeachment” trial and I will force a vote on whether the Senate can hold a trial of a private citizen.

Give em’ hell Rand!
If he doesn’t get the votes to bring this impeachment to a halt, then many more in the GOP can kiss their positions goodbye.
Rand also isn’t the only one who believes this impeachment is illegal.
Famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz stated that not only is it illegal, but it’s also against the constitution.
“It’s unconstitutional,” Dershowitz told host Carl Higbie on “Saturday Report.” “I mean, you cannot impeach a president unless he’s committed high crimes and misdemeanors and these don’t constitute high crimes and misdemeanors, they constitute Constitutionally protected speech.
“You can condemn, you can attack, you can refuse to vote for, you can do all of those things which are politically available to you, but the one thing you can’t do is use the law, which is impeachment, on something which is protected by the First Amendment.”
In saying the Capitol rioters should be prosecuted for the violence, Dershowitz added the president cannot be blamed for their actions.
“[Impeaching the president] would do more enduring harm to our Constitution than even the horrible rioters did, although they are strongly to be condemned and I’m very glad they’re being prosecuted to the hilt,” Dershowitz said. “It’s part of the core theory of the First Amendment that you prosecute the actors, you don’t prosecute the speaker.
This impeachment is truly nothing more then a political stunt by the Democrats.
And it’s incredibly frustrating that Republicans like Mitch McConnell are actually validating it.
