Mark levin says that Senate Republicans should not wait for the House to impeach President Trump, but rather should employ the nuclear option to stop impeachment in it’s tracks.
Just as Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell have employed the nuclear option in the past to change Senate rules to limit the necessary votes to change from the filibuster’s required 60 votes to a simple majority, Levin says they should do that on impeachment, that would automatically dismiss the impeachment the moment it gets to the Senate.
But, the truth is Republicans in the Senate loack the cojones to take action.
Conservative radio host Mark Levin said the GOP controlled Senate should invoke a “nuclear option” and dismiss any potential impeachment charges against President Donald Trump.
Appearing on Thursday night’s edition of “Hannity” on Fox News, Levin broke down California Rep. Adam Schiff’s prior knowledge about the whistleblower complaint, contending that he likely revealed it only to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“How do I know that?” he asked rhetorically. “Because she goes to the podium like Eva Perrone and she declares — now we’re gonna have an official impeachment inquiry without the transcript. How did she know? Because Schiff tipped her off about what what was in this complaint.”
After continuing to criticize the complaint, Levin turned his attention to the Senate, which he contended was not Constitutionally bound to take up an impeachment trial.
Citing a “responsibility to protect the Constitution and protect this country and protect the office of the presidency,” Levin said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should “launch a nuclear option.”
What am I talking about? Mitch McConnell was on TV saying, ’67 votes to change the rules.’ They changed the rules when it came to the courts and they can change the rules here. Simple majority with a nuclear option allows the Senate to dismiss those charges … as soon as they come to the Senate.
