Republicans in the United States Senate pledged Tuesday to “crush” any Democratic-led effort to impeach President Trump in the coming months; throwing more cold-water on progressives’ call to remove the Commander-in-Chief from office.
“Senate Republicans are vowing to crush the impeachment effort if the Democrat-controlled House passes articles of impeachment of President Trump,” reports Fox News. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is expected to ensure that the measure, which has caused some friction even among Democrats, would be over before it could gain traction.”
“I think it would be disposed of very quickly,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham told The Hill. “If it’s based on the Mueller report, or anything like that, it would be quickly disposed of.”
“It would be defeated. That’s why all they want to do is talk about it,” said Texas Sen. John Cornyn, suggesting Democrats are more interested in talking about removing the President than actually passing the legislation. “They know what the outcome would be.”
“Why on earth would we give a platform to something that I judge as a purely political exercise?” Sen. Thom Tillis told The Hill. “We have to perform our constitutional duty, but if people think that we’re going to try and create a theater that could give you the perception that this is a matter that rises to the level of Watergate, that’s nonsense.”
Recently sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib vowed to move forward on impeachment Sunday; telling ‘Meet the Press’ that her colleagues are “moving towards that” as President Trump acts as if he were “above the law.”
Fading presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren became the first Senator to publicly demand the impeachment of President Trump last Tuesday; claiming Robert Mueller’s final report contains enough “information” to “begin an impeachment proceeding.”

“We are a government that works by separation of powers. We are not a government that circles-the-wagon around a leader and says everything else falls away… The information that has been given to us in the Mueller report clearly constitutes adequate information to begin an impeachment proceeding in the House of Representatives,” said Warren on the Senate floor.
“No matter how many times the Republicans want to wish it away, it’s there, in black and white in the report. I urge every Republican to read the Mueller report,” she added.

COLLUSION DELUSION: Rashida Tlaib Introduces Bill Urging Trump’s Impeachment
Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib officially introduced legislation this week that urged the impeachment of President Trump; completely ignoring Robert Mueller’s final report that found absolutely “no collusion” between the President and Russian officials.
The resolution urges the House Judiciary Committee to investigate whether the Commander-in-Chief committed “any offenses” that would warrant impeachment proceedings.
The legislation inquires “whether the House of Representatives should impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America,” adding “the Committee on the Judiciary or any subcommittee or task force designated by the Committee may, in connection with the inquiry under this resolution, take affidavits and depositions by a member, counsel, or consultant of the Committee, pursuant to notice or subpoena.”
Tlaib made national headlines in January when she vowed to “Impeach the Motherf***er!” just hours after being officially sworn-in as a Member of Congress.

DELUSIONAL DEMAND: Democrats Call for 'Nazi' Trump IMPEACHMENT by Christmas
Liberal lawmakers renewed their calls for President Trump’s impeachment this week, setting a Christmas deadline for the removal of the Commander-in-Chief over allegations he “colluded” with Russians and incites “white nationalism.”
Texas Representative Al Green urged his fellow liberal colleagues to file articles of impeachment before the new year; accusing the President of “xenophobia, sexism, and ethnocentrism.”
“I now announce that before Christmas, there will be a vote on the chief inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, sexism and ethnocentrism,” he said on the floor of the House of Representatives, calling on Democrats to “continue to reject what the inciter in chief, Donald J. Trump has been causing this country to have to endure.”
According to Fox News, Green’s legislation “covered four articles of impeachment,” accusing the President of “inciting white supremacy, sexism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, race-baiting, and racism by demeaning, defaming, disrespecting and disparaging women and certain minorities.”
“[Trump brought] shame and dishonor to the office of the presidency by associating the majesty and dignity of the presidency with causes rooted in white supremacy, bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism, white nationalism and neo-Nazism,” Green added.
