Senator Set to Introduce Legislation that Would Dismiss Trump’s Impeachment Outright

This would almost certainly usher in a fresh plague of Trump Derangement Syndrome…

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may believe that her reluctance in handing over the articles of impeachment to the Senate is some sort of legislative magic trick sure to make the higher chamber bend to her will, but there’s no way that she say this coming.

With the Senate set to begin the impeachment trial of Donald Trump any day now, there is wild speculation as to what this process will actually look like.  Mitch McConnell appears ready to proceed without a single witness being called, and he has admitted himself to being unwilling to act impartially.  The Democrats, however, would like to bring in some White House heavyweights to testify, such as Mick Mulvaney, John Bolton, and Mike Pompeo.

Heck, there are even some Republicans who want to call witnesses such as Joe and Hunter Biden, if and when it should come to that.

And that “if” keeps getting bigger, especially now that Senator Josh Hawley has gotten the ball rolling on a bill that would simply toss the whole thing out wholesale.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said Thursday he will introduce legislation to dismiss the Democrats’ impeachment trial, calling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) withholding of the articles of impeachment an “abuse of the Constitution.”

Sen. Hawley, a former Missouri attorney general, said he will introduce a bill on Monday to dismiss the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump because Democrats have yet to send the articles of impeachment to Congress’s upper chamber.

“Dems said impeachment was URGENT. Now they don’t want to have a trial, because they have no evidence,” Sen. Hawley tweeted. “In real world, if prosecution doesn’t proceed with case, it gets dismissed. So on Monday, I will introduce measure to dismiss this bogus impeachment for lack of prosecution”…
Mitch McConnell has also intimated that the impeachment process could be halted entirely, specifically referring to the possibility that a motion to dismiss the trial outright could be introduced in the moments following opening statements in the Senate.
