The vote on whether to acquit or convict President Trump is supposed to happen any minute now, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took the time to tweet about the importance of the Senate. He talks about “partisan flames,” and with the exception of Sen. Mitt Romney, it looks like the vote to acquit will come down to a straight party line. We guess Romney crossing the aisle makes this a bipartisan impeachment after all.
Plenty have accused Trump and the Republicans of shredding the Constitution, but McConnell reminded the public what the Senate is for.
Moments like this are what the Senate was made for. The Framers knew the country would need a firewall to keep partisan flames from scorching our Republic.
So they created the Senate. Today, we will fulfill this founding purpose.

Can the Senate come up with something to limit the Houses power to make sure that they do not keep going with these witch-hunts and hoaxes? Enough is enough!

We wish. You know we’re all looking for what Democrats will impeach Trump for after his re-election … and McConnell’s re-election.
‘Beast’! Mitch McConnell starts Senate workday with 3 words that’ll trigger the Democrats https://t.co/DC6qZGARMv
