Pelosi Sending Impeachment Article to Senate Monday, GOP Senators Warn McConnell Against Vote To Convict

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will send the article of impeachment against Donald Trump to the Senate on Monday where a “full trial” will take place.

This, according to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

Schumer stated that he had spoken with Pelosi about the article and that it “will be delivered to the Senate on Monday.”

“Make no mistake: There will be a full trial. There will be a fair trial,” he tweeted as if to convince himself of the impartiality that will greet the former President.

Schumer, speaking on the floor of the Senate, proceeded to make a rather unfortunate error in announcing the news.

“There will be a trial, and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection … insurrection against the United States.” he declared.

Articles Of Impeachment And Senate Trial To Kick Off Monday

Former President Donald Trump has reportedly hired a lawyer for the Senate impeachment trial by the name of Butch Bowers.

Reuters reports that Bowers was a recommendation of Senator Lindsey Graham.

“Bowers has represented former Republican governors in South Carolina and served in the U.S. Justice Department under Republican former President George W. Bush,” they write.

The Hill indicates only a handful of Republicans seem likely to go along with a vote to convict Trump, short of what they would need for success.

They write, “Only five or six Republican senators at the most seem likely to vote for impeachment, far fewer than the number needed.”

McConnell Has Been Warned

Meanwhile, CNN is reporting that several GOP senators have expressed that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “could face backlash if he votes to convict Trump.”

“If he does, I don’t know if he can stay as leader,” one senior GOP senator allegedly told CNN.

Senator Ron Johnson, when asked if he could support McConnell if he voted to convict the former President replied, “No, no, no.”

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) voiced his opinion that having GOP leadership move forward with Trump’s impeachment would be a “huge mistake” and would “destroy” the Republican Party.

McConnell has not publicly announced if he would vote to convict Trump, but his words leading up to the trial have indicated a disdain for the former President’s actions, if not his role in the party.

McConnell reportedly views the Democrats’ effort to impeach the president as a means to “help rid the Republican Party of Trump and his movement.”

A poll from Axios-Ipsos that came out last week shows Republican voters are siding with Trump over McConnell “big time.”

The results show a vast majority of Republicans do not hold Trump responsible for the Capitol riots, believe he has a right to challenge the election, and still support him, with supporters even sticking with him as their preferred nominee in 2024.

If McConnell and the Republicans vote to convict on the article of impeachment, the party will forever and irreparably be fractured.
