Senate Republicans Can’t Wait to ‘Stick It’ to Dems in ‘Impeachment Part 2’

Trump has already said he and the GOP want to call in Adam Schiff, Joe Biden, and Hunter Biden to testify

The Democrats’ pathetic impeachment inquiry process, in my opinion, is over now.

What will they do next?

As polls have shifted and now show that most Americans are against the impeachment of President Donald Trump — especially the all-important independents — and TV ratings were in the gutter, do Dems dare to go through with filing articles of impeachment?

Well, if they do, President Trump wants his due process and his day in “court” — in the Senate, that is.

He plans to turn the tables on the Dems by calling in people like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), plus former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, and others to testify.

It seems that Republicans actually may be licking their chops in anticipation of Democrats in the House voting to impeach the president.

Revenge is a dish best served ice cold in the Senate:

“Democrats should be worried. They’ve wielded a double-edged sword this whole time,” wrote one CEO, Dan Eberhart, on Twitter.

“Every major fact that Democrats have simply glossed over or hand-waved away will be brought up in the Senate.”

“Their sham, partisan stunt will be brought to light.”

“Everyone knows what they’re going to do next. They’re going to impeach the president and send it on to the Senate, but that is the good news. That’s good news,” as Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) said on Thursday

“In the U.S. Senate, there won’t be any secret testimony or dishonest leadership … or to deny a defense … So we’ll finally be able to get to the truth,” Stewart also said, as BizPac Review and other outlets noted.

The GOP congressman also mentioned a number of witnesses he hoped would be called to testify in the Senate.

They include the so-called whistleblower, Schiff, Hunter Biden, Burisma board member Devon Archer, DNC consultant Alexandra Chalupa, and Fusion GPS researcher Nellie Ohr.

“Don’t forget, there was no due process … You can’t have lawyers, we couldn’t have any witnesses,” President Trump himself told “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning during a phone call.

“We want to call the whistleblower … Frankly, I want a trial!”

During the House’s impeachment push, only witnesses handpicked and sanctioned by Schiff’ were able to testify.

Even then, those individuals clearly failed to make a solid case for impeachable actions. “Nonetheless, to Democrats, facts have always been irrelevant and they have hung all their hopes on this doomed effort to remove the president from office,” as Bizpac Review noted in a piece.

The Democrats have painted themselves into a corner, in my view.

How well does anyone think old Joe Biden will hold up under grilling in the Senate?

My guess is not very well — and also, keep in mind, Dem senators can’t campaign while there’s an impeachment going on.

Republicans could drag this out and hurt Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) in early states.

Here’s how BizPac Review put it:

One official in the administration said there were “ample reasons” for the Senate to just dismiss the case, according to Fox News. But if that was to happen, Republicans would be passing up a huge opportunity to publicly scrutinize allegations of criminal activity by Democrats surrounding Ukraine and the impeachment scam.

Senate officials are already laying the groundwork for digging into those dirty deeds to some level. On Thursday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo asking for any documents related to contacts between former Vice President Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, as well as to a meeting between Hunter Biden’s business partner and former Secretary of State John Kerry.
