Kevin McCarthy Suggests Instead Of Impeachment For Trump, Maybe Republicans Could Agree To Censure The President

What’s Happening:

Many in the liberal media blame Republicans for the events of January 6. Although most—if not all—conservatives leaders condemned what happened, Democrats want to “punish” them over it.

(Funny how nobody blamed Democrats for the months of upheaval by leftist activists over the Summer.)

Some Republicans—quick to show their true colors—called on Trump to resign, blaming him for everything that went on. It seems there’s nothing swamp dwellers won’t say to save their own skin.

Now, the Republican House leader is coming out with his own solution. He’s against the impeachment push by Democrats. But his solution might be just as upsetting to millions of Trump supporters.

From NY Post:

McCarthy (R-Calif.) wrote in a letter to GOP colleagues that he opposes impeaching Trump for a second time, but that some Republicans favor the less-severe form of reprimand…

“Notwithstanding the Speaker’s push towards impeachment, I have heard from members across our conference who have raised at least four potential avenues available to the House to ensure that the events of January 6 are rightfully denounced and prevented from occurring in the future.”

According to McCarthy, some Republicans in Congress are willing to censure Donald Trump over the events of January 6.

They seem to think passing a resolution of this kind will “properly” address what happened and “bring the country” together.

But such a move is unlikely to work.

Democrats have made it clear they want to utterly erase Trump’s legacy in D.C. Impeaching and convicting him would be the only way to punish him by not allowing him to run for office again.

Although it is a longshot, they are using whatever clout they have left to force a vote.

Republicans, on the other hand, won’t like seeing their elected leaders point their fingers at Trump.

Few, if any, Americans condone what happened on Capitol Hill. But the many who voted for Trump most likely don’t believe he is responsible. Nor would they be happy to see House Republicans so quick to “throw him under the bus” with a censure.

It’s very likely most Americans think this is all a waste of time and are just eager to move on. If you ask them, they’d tell you they’d to see Congress do something to actually help Americans—like with this little virus called COVID.

But when has Congress ever put Americans first?

Key Takeaways:

  • Democrats in the House are pushing to impeach and remove Trump from office.
  • House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy is instead suggesting a censure.
  • The move is being touted as a “compromise,” though most in both camps would not like it.
