Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial is set to begin on Tuesday, February 9.
Everyone knows the outcome is all but assured.
But even the Fake News Media was surprised when Chuck Schumer made this admission about Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
Democrats need 67 votes to impeach Donald Trump.
And last week, Senator Rand Paul forced a vote on dismissing the House’s article of impeachment on the grounds that it was unconstitutional for the Senate to hold a trial for a private citizen.
45 Republican Senators voted for Rand Paul’s amendment, meaning Democrats have almost no chance to garner the 67 votes needed to convict Trump.
This revelation caused the RINO from Maine Susan Collins and Virginia Democrat Senator Tim Kaine to try to drum up support for a resolution censoring Donald Trump instead of the planned impeachment trial.
But Chuck Schumer quickly shot down the idea of censoring Donald Trump, telling reporters at a press conference that Trump deserved conviction in the Senate and nothing less.

Of course, Chuck Schumer is facing the threat of a primary challenge from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in 2022, which forces him to spend as much time tending to liberal voters in New York as he does protecting Democrat Senators in swing states like New Hampshire, Arizona, and Georgia.
Even though everyone knows there isn’t any chance of the Democrats convicting Donald Trump in the Senate, the radical Left is demanding the Senate go full steam ahead with his impeachment trial next week.
And with AOC nipping at his heels, Chuck Schumer can’t afford to drop Trump’s impeachment trial and neglect getting to work solving the real problems facing the American people.
