(UnitedVoice.com) – On Monday, January 25, the House delivered the single article of impeachment against former President Donald Trump to the Senate. That allowed the upper chamber to get to work on it — and right away, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) took action.
On Tuesday, Paul forced a vote in the Senate on whether the impeachment proceedings are even constitutional. The senator believes they are moot now that Trump is out of office. Lawmakers voted 55-45 to allow the process to go forward.
Senate votes 55 to 45, with only 5 Republicans voting against Paul's point of order to dismiss the trial

Although that seems terrible, it showed the majority of Republicans in the Senate were still standing behind the leader of their party. Democrats need 17 members of the GOP to side with them in order to convict Trump. It’s clear they’re going to have an incredibly hard time reaching that threshold. In fact, it looks like the former president is going to beat the second impeachment scam as soundly as he beat the first one.
