The Hill reports:
Former President Trump’s ex-chief of staff predicted that Democrats’ efforts to convict the former president in a Senate trial were “dead on arrival” following a vote Tuesday by most of the chamber’s Republicans to dismiss a second impeachment trial.
Some senators have maintained they are undecided on whether to convict Trump despite the vote Tuesday. Still, the five votes rejecting Paul’s effort to declare the impeachment trial unconstitutional is far less than the 17 GOP votes that Democrats need to successfully convict Trump.
If today’s Senate vote is any sign, the Democrats’ ridiculous impeachment of former President Trump will fail—again—by a long shot. Dead on arrival.
Good for @RandPaul and the 45 GOP Senators for standing up.
