House Democrats impeachment case and evidence — or lack thereof — is apparently so weak that four Democratic senators are leaning towards voting to acquit President Donald Trump.
“Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Doug Jones of Alabama are undecided on whether to vote to remove the president from office and agonizing over where to land,” The Daily Wire reported. “It’s a decision that could have major ramifications for each senator’s legacy and political prospects — as well shape the broader political dynamic surrounding impeachment heading into the 2020 election.”
The move would give the president a bipartisan acquittal to the Democrats’ partisan charges, something that Trump is eagerly seeking.
“All three senators remain undecided after hearing arguments from the impeachment managers and Trump’s defense team. But they could end up with a creative solution,” Politico added. “One or more senators may end up splitting their votes, borrowing a move from Rep. Jared Golden (D-Maine), who voted for the abuse of power charge but against the one on obstruction of Congress.”
The fourth is California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who suggested in an interview with the LA Times that she was open to acquitting the president.
The LA Times tweeted: “Breaking: Sen. Dianne Feinstein became the first Democrat to suggest that she could vote to acquit President Trump despite serious concerns about his character.”
“Nine months left to go, the people should judge. We are a republic, we are based on the will of the people — the people should judge,” The LA Times quoted Feinstein as saying after the president’s team finished a three-day presentation in his defense. “That was my view and it still is my view.”
It’s easy to understand why at least these two Democrats are considering voting against impeaching the president.
