    GOP leadership: There aren't 51 votes to dismiss Trump articles of impeachment

    Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) told reporters on Monday that the Senate Republican caucus doesn't have the votes to dismiss the articles of impeachment against President Trump, who endorsed an "outright dismissal" over the weekend.



    "I think our members generally are not interested in a motion to dismiss. ... Certainly there aren't 51 votes for a motion to dismiss," Blunt, the No. 4 Senate Republican, told reporters after a closed-door leadership meeting.

    Republicans have warned for months that they will not dismiss the two articles of impeachment against Trump, predicting a trial will end with votes on either acquitting or convicting him.

    But Trump revived talk of trying to dismiss the articles over the weekend, saying the Senate was "giving credence" to the allegations against him by having a trial.

    7 Recs.

    More likely those who would not vote for acquittal do so because they will be demanding the non whistle blower - whistle blower, Biden, and Schitt Azz testify.

    2. They just want to keep faking legitimacy.

    Outright dismissal might too blatantly reveal their kompromat.
    President Trump did nothing wrong. Democrats were unable to even state a crime that he committed, much less 'high crimes and misdemeanors".

    I find it hilarious that the Democrats were claiming that impeachment was 'political' so they didn't need a crime to impeach him, and THEY got to determine the "rules" in the House. And that's what they did, rigging it so that President Trump and Republicans had NO DUE PROCESS.

    But now the Jack*sses are claiming it's a "real trial" and it must be "fair" and House Jack*sses and the Senate minority MUST be included in deciding the rules.

    And oh yes. Jack*sses are claiming that the SENATE must secure the witnesses the House was either too stupid, ignorant or lazy to go through the process to gain the witnesses they want. Or more likely the Piglosi's PIGS are gaming the system, counting on their propaganda media to claim that it's not a 'fair trial' but won't explain that it was and is the Jack*ss responsibility to gain the witnesses.

    It's all about the election. Jack*sses think everyone will be too stupid to see the jack*ss behavior of the jack*sses. Proof positive that they are not? President Trump WON, Hillary LOST.

    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    Got news for them. There's more of a chance of 51 votes dismissing the articles than there are 67 votes to convict him.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    Look at it this way: McC, Cruz, & Co. are going for an acquittal. Not a dismissal.

    As Rand Paul, and later Mitch McConnell, pointed out, if witnesses are called, it won't be just the ones the Dems want to call. Hunter Biden ... Eric He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named Ciaramella ... Schifftyroo & Staff ...
