Joe Biden has admitted that the Democrats do not have the votes in the Senate to convict former President Trump.
According to Town Hall:
Though President Biden is all in on a Senate impeachment trial, telling CNN he believes it “has to happen,” even he is acknowledging the reality that the upper chamber will not be able to convict former President Trump.
He told the network that if Trump had several months left in office the outcome of the trial could be different, but noted that it’s unlikely now that 17 GOP senators will vote to convict the former president.
“The Senate has changed since I was there, but it hasn’t changed that much,” Biden said.
House Democrats on Monday night brought the article of impeachment to the Senate.
Biden made the comments during a brief 1-on-1 interview with CNN.
