Wingnuttia’s brain trust has spoken: House Republicans Say The Senators Running For President Shouldn’t Be Allowed To Be Jurors In Trump’s Impeachment Trial
WASHINGTON — House Republicans are introducing legislation calling for senators running for president in 2020 to sit out the impeachment trial.
Rep. Jason Smith of Missouri will introduce a resolution Thursday recommending that any senator running to challenge President Donald Trump should recuse themselves from the expected Senate trial. The resolution was provided in advance to BuzzFeed News. It is unlikely to pass in the Democrat-controlled House and would not be binding but would serve as a suggestion from the House
How Smith plans to get that past Nancy Pelosi’s desk remains a mystery, but it would be interesting to see if the Graveyard of amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch might, for the first time this congress, take up a bill.
This is what is known in the trade as a long shot.
