Democrats accuse Trump of pursuing a scheme to cheat in the2020election by pressuringUkraineto manufacture bad news about the former vice-presidentJoe Biden, one of Trump’s main Democrat rivals, and then blocking congressional oversight.
Republican Doug Collins of Georgia, the ranking member on the judiciary committee, said that impeachment had always been an “inevitability” under theDemocratsand denied that Trump had committed a crime.
Trump has “made the calculation that he’s going to do everything in his power to mobilize his supporters,” said Chris Kofinis, a Democratic strategist who noted that Trump’s combative behavior during his impeachment broke with Clinton’s combination of contrition and concentration on legislative matters. “He’s actually magnifying the significance of impeachment.
In 1998, after the impeachment of PresidentBill Clinton, the House sent the charges off to the Senate within minutes. This time around, the House may want to hold onto the articles as leverage to extract concessions from Senate Republicans — or to bury impeachment as it proves increasingly unpopular among moderates inkey battleground states.
Rushing to impeach?
Pelosi insisted that Republicans would need to run a fair trial if the matter made its way to the Senate, without explaining what exactly she was seeking. Republicans, including McConnell,this week condemned Democrats for rushing to impeach and rejected the idea that they would do Democrats’ work for them in the Senate.
McConnell openly embraced his role as a partisan, saying House Democrats had paid only superficial lip service to the idea of fairness — even as they allowed a trove of hearsay evidence against the president, barred several proposed GOP witnesses, conducted hearings out of the public view, called a series of left-wing law professors to testify about their feelings on Trump, and prejudged the case publicly for months.
Meanwhile, conservative commentatorsslammed any delay in the Senate trial as crass partisan gamesmanship, noting that just this past March, Pelosi hadvowed that impeachmentwould need to be a bipartisan effort. In the end, the only bipartisan aspect of the impeachment process was that a handful of Democrats joined Republicans to oppose it. All Republicans opposed both articles of impeachment.
That said, this special resolution which the House must approve is considered “privileged,” meaning that if any member wants to call up a vote to transfer it to the Senate, that must happen right away. But, the House can continue to hold onto the articles of impeachment if the resolution were defeated.
The historic impeachment votes were tallied as Trump was holding a rally on friendly turf in frigid downtown Battle Creek, Mich., where thousands lined up hours in advance — with some reportedly sleeping in tents beginning Tuesday night so that they could guarantee a seat.
‘We did nothing wrong’
“By the way, it doesn’t really feel like we’re being impeached,” Trump said at the rally. “The country is doing better than ever before. We did nothing wrong.”
He added, to cheers: “We didn’t lose one Republican, and three Democrats voted for us. The Democrats always stick together. Now think of it: Three Democrats went over to our side, no Republicans. It’s unheard of.”
Pelosi and House Democrats, Trump said, had “branded themselves with an eternal mark of shame,” and were on a “political suicide march.”
“I don’t know about you, but I’m having a great time,” Trump said. “I’m not worried.”
After the event concluded, the president tweeted a picture of himself with the words, “In reality, they’re not after me. They’re after you. I’m just in the way.”
It was a long-brewing moment of frustration, as Republicans openly cast doubt on Democrats’ claims that they were driven by an earnest desire to protect U.S. national security and the Constitution. At the outset of the proceedings, Pelosi claimed Democrats have “no choice” but to impeach the president, and that they were in reality quite saddened.
