(PatriotHeadline)- Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio said on Sunday morning that he was eager to vote to end the “counter-productive” and “stupid” impeachment trial being forced on the Senate by the Democrats. Rubio roundly dismissed and condemned the trial, which many argue is unconstitutional, as Democrats continue their anti-Trump tirade even after installing Joe Biden as president under military presence on January 20.
“The first chance I get to vote to end this trial, I’ll do it because I think it’s really bad for America,” Rubio said.
Sounds like someone might have told him about Ivanka Trump’s rumored plans to primary him in Florida…
“If you want to hold people accountable, there’s other ways to do it, particularly for president, including as I said, the perspective of history, and even now as people are learning more about all of this,” Rubio said.
While Democrats still insist that President Donald Trump incited a riot on January 6, the FBI has already dismissed those claims by confirming that the violence began before his speech ended during his peaceful protest in Washington, D.C.
FBI officials also confirmed that the violence, which was condemned and discouraged by the president, was pre-organized by extremists using social media platforms like Twitter. And Rubio, along with most Republicans, know that to be the case.
“This is not a criminal justice trial, this is a political process,” he said. “Ultimately, it is a political process that’s going to inject things into our public discourse, into our debates, that’s going to make it harder to get important things done, and it’s just going to continue to fuel these divisions that have paralyzed the country.”
But before you go thinking that Rubio is on Trump’s side…remember he did say that he thinks the former president “bears responsibility for some of what happened.” He did not, however, explain how he believes a president that told people to protest peacefully and reject violence throughout his campaign and on the day of the Capitol Hill unrest could have possibly been responsible for what happened.
At least he won’t be voting to convict…
The impeachment trial is set to begin on February 8, but as it stands, Democrats don’t have the numbers they need from the Republicans to convict the president.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell now faces the difficult decision of choosing to convict the president and standing in solidarity with the GOP establishment, which would destroy the Republican Party or risk his position within it or standing with the populist Republican voters and resisting Democrat hate campaigns.
What do you think he’ll do?
