They weren’t happy to hear this!
In a recent interview with CBS, Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) admitted that the Democrats attempt to impeach President Trump was simply not going to happen.
According to Breitbart, CBS’s Margaret Brennan asked, “Are Republican leaders going to hold him accountable in any way for it?”
Blunt said, “I think the country is in the right to hold presidents accountable. The president should be very careful over the next 10 days is that his behavior is what you would expect from the leader of the greatest country in the world. My personal view is that the president touched the hot stove on Wednesday and is unlikely to touch it again.”
Adding, “I did, the day Senator Hawley announced he would be contesting those electoral votes, announced that I would not be. When Senator Cruz said he had a plan to put back in place a commission like the one formed in 1877, I said that wouldn’t happen. I wasn’t interested then or now in spending a lot of time on things that can’t happen just like the impeachment of the president to remove him from office clearly is not going to happen between now and the last day he is in office.”
