House Democrat and impeachment trial manager, Rep. Adam Schiff, closed the argument in favor of President Donald Trump’s impeachment but did so by signaling what could be perceived as a concession as Republicans will soon vote against his case for impeachment and removal of the president.
“History will not be kind to Donald Trump,” stated Schiff “Because of truth matters. Right matters. And decency matters. It may be midnight in Washington, but the sun will rise again. I put my faith in the optimism of our Founders. You should too.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio tweeted that removing Trump ” would not serve the nations best interest.”
“If House votes to impeach, the Senate decides not just guilt or innocence, but also whether removal is in the nations best interest EVEN IF (not EVEN THOUGH) Article I could be proven, removal would not serve the nations best interest; Article II is a joke,” stated Rubio.
Republicans voted against calling anymore witness to the trial, all-but solidifying an acquittal in the Republican-led U.S. Senate.
Democrats were always swimming against the political and parliamentarian current, as 2/3 of all senators would have to vote in favor of impeachment for Trump to be impeached and removed.
