Senator Ron Johnson Hints at Lengthy Impeachment Trial in Senate

Senator Ron Johnson responded to a possible impeachment trial in the Senate by claiming it would be conducted and not dismissed quickly.

According to The Hill:

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said on Friday that he opposes quickly dismissing any articles of impeachment against President Trump and predicted the Senate would hold a trial.

“I know outside pundits are just bringing up, dismiss this thing out of hand and move on, but at the same time that would not afford President Trump the ability to really defend himself. So I think consensus view point literally is we’ll take it up in the Senate,” Johnson told KHOW, a Colorado radio station.
Johnson predicted that any articles of impeachment sent over by the House would be “incredibly flawed,” and that in Senate proceedings House managers and President Trump’s team would make their case.
“I don’t think we should ever just bring up a motion to dismiss. I think if at some point in time if we’ve heard enough, if we’ve really got the votes, we should bring up a motion to vote. Let’s actually vote on the articles of impeachment and then dispense with it that way,” Johnson continued.
The comments come after Johnson and other GOP Senators met with White House aides to discuss impeachment strategy.
The lengthy trial would keep a majority of Democrat presidential candidates, who are senators, from campaigning by keeping them in Washinton for six days a week during the trial. Many have speculated that this could be a part of the impeachment strategy from the GOP.

A great use of the “rope a dope” technique. The Dems have painted themselves into a corner, to miz metaphors.

I’m a little leary of the Senate taking up an impeachment trial. I really don’t trust politicians on any side of the isle. But if they do go to trial, I hope the Republicans will stick together to support President Trump. I believe some of the GOP are anti-Trumpers and they could blindside the President. I hope not for their sake and ours.

Good! Keep the Democrats busy and keep them from campaigning as much as possible. They want to impeach President Trump, make it as difficult for them as possible.

Yes let’s do it. Keep them off the campaign trail. Then they can thank their party, for no exposure.
Way to go Republican’s

I think the American People deserve to know how badly and deep the ‘left’ have gone to prevent Donald from getting elected and once elected how key folks have tried to end President Trumph’s presidency. Real people need to be held accountable and if a crime happened then folks need to be sent to prison no matter who is found guilty!

Just more wasted taxpayers’ money and wasted time that could be spent doing something productive for our country. I believe we have spent enough moeny and wated enough time on this 3-ring circus clown act — 3 + years is more than long enough to tolerate a bunch of anti-American traitors. The whole world should know by now that Presient Trump is NOT guilty of any of the demoTRASH fantasies and never has been. Enough of their BS !!!!!!

Run it right up through election day as far as I’m concerned. I would think Trump can get out and campaign, whereas the Dem Senators cannot; of course that could be a two-edged sword by keeping the Repub Senators up for re-election from campaigning. Of course, with it being OUR turn to make the rules, we could say that the majority could leave to campaign from time to time but that the minority must keep their butts glued to their seats. Rules are rules! And keep Schitpanz tied up as well. I do believe he has an opponent.

Wow! Well, send them on to their missions to run for President. They’re going to LIE about the President, no mater what. THEN, you can have various people keep track of them at their campaign stops, video taping the entire thing. Have the Vids brought back to the White House, and listen to them all. Don’t trust the MSM recordings.
Just think…Everything they say can and will be used against them. You’ll have all the right answers. Well, if it were me? That’s exactly what I would do. 😀

That is actually a very good strategy. President Trump will not only have legal representation but it will open up a LARGE can of “worms” that the scumbag democrats would rather not have exposed to scrutiny UNDER OATH ! It will also keep them in D.C. and off the campaign trail . What a great way to “stick it” to those crazed lunatic commies.

There is no winning for the President or the GOP as long as the Democrats and media continue to lie. That’s the only reason it’s gone this long.

TO: President Trump, Americans
cc: All on the Left and on the Fence

RE: Before proceeding making America great let us thank Nancy and her gang!

Americans, let’s all thank Mrs. Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and all of those players in the Congress, the bureaucracy, the media, etc… who have participated in what I will simply refer to as a ‘Resistance Movement’. They have validated without a reasonable doubt not only the 12 lessons learned (see below) that I introduced to the citizens of my community in 1989 after 26 years as a military officer and into my third year as their police chief, but the four I have added since President Trump’s election. Also, their actions have started an avalanche of information revealing a level of corruption matching or exceeding what most of us old cops came to know over 30 years ago (see next paragraph). I personally cannot wait to watch the difference styles of dancing we are bound to see from those trying to manage damage control!

The lessons learned were to be the preface of a yet to be published book titled: Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America, You’ve Been Had! To date the book has not been published due to the large amount of still classified information therein. I will reveal that the book discusses the results of a Senate requested investigation as to the actual relationships between the governments of the United States, Panama, China, Russia, other nations, certain international banking organizations, and the international drug trade/money laundering ring operating in/around the Panama Canal. The investigation was requested to address concerns of senators regarding issues related to turning control of the Panama Canal over to the government of Panama. For your information; in addition to the names of several officials in the Carter Administration, one first term senator (J. Biden) and one state attorney general (W. Clinton) made it on to the list of individual subjects.

Please, asking for your tolerance for one final comment from an old retired cop. The events surrounding and/or occurring within the parameters the so-called Special Prosecutor (Mueller) Investigation of Russian/Trump collusion/obstruction of justice in/around the 2016 National elections were by no stretch of any DOJ and/or other federal government statutes/laws/regulations/SOP’s/etc… an investigation. It was crystal clear that all of the activities before, during, and after the Mueller affair were/are a collection of grossly screwed up attempts to maintain the power of the long established oligarchy and distract from learning the real facts surrounding the 2016 election and post election efforts to negate the 2016 presidential elections.

A Soldier/Cop’s Lessons Learned

1. Omitted.

2. The Seven C’s of Leadership according to a 1980 survey of 1646 of Vietnam era ground combat veterans listed of the order of their importance are; Candor, Competence, Consistency, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, and Courtesy. The reason the soldiers in the survey chose the word “candor” is because to them candor encompasses both omission and co-mission. To a combat soldier lack of absolute candor, be it co-mission or omission, are equal sins! In short, soldiers expect/demand absolute candor from their leaders before all else.

3. Omitted.

4. The American people are the most effectively lied to people in modern times thanks primarily to the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American academia.

5. Arrogance coupled with ignorance equals stupidity.

6. The greatest threats to the American people are the corrupt and/or incompetent politicians/bureaucrats/academicians found at every level of government/academia, and the majority of the American so-called media.

7. Most of the politicians/bureaucrats/academicians I have encountered during my years as a soldier/cop I most kindly refer to as; self-serving, witless, cowards.

8. The American Profession of Arms and our brothers/sisters in blue have failed to protect the American people from all of their enemies, both foreign and most especially domestic.

9-11. Omitted.

12. There are only two primary requirements to be a career soldier and/or cop in America. One must be smart enough to do the work and dumb enough to take the job.

13. American soldiers and police officers must in addition to mastering all of their professionally mandated tasks, learn to accomplish the same with at least one arm tied behind their backs and their vision impaired 50% or more. (Added 2019)

14. After carefully watching the whole of the political class since Donald J. Trump walked down that escalator in Trump Tower to date, I can say without reservation that most of the group will sell their souls and our bodies just to remain in power. (Added 2019)

15. Want to see what the United States of America will look like if the left takes control of the government? Take your pick, New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or the complete package; California. (Added 2019)

16. If the so-called resistance movement continues unchecked a number of able veterans are going to be presented with a challenge/decision. Are the American people worth another drop of our sweat and/or our blood? (Added 2019)
