Trump’s removal not going to happen – Senator Roy Blunt
Senator Roy Blunt, (R-Mo.) and member of the Senate GOP leadership, says plans to remove President Donald Trump from office will not see the light of day.
He stated this on Friday amid rising calls for the president’s ouster since his supporters invaded the Capitol on Wednesday.
Several high-profile politicians, including House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, and a top Republican congressman, Adam Kinzinger, called for Trump’s removal from office.
“No, I think it’s a ridiculous discussion to have. I’ve got enough decisions to make about things that can happen rather than to spend time on things that can’t happen,” Blunt told a Missouri TV station when asked if he supported removing Trump and if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) would bring the Senate back before Jan. 19.
“The Speaker knows this is not going to happen. Sen. Schumer knows this isn’t going to happen. You don’t have the time for it to happen, even if there was a reason. So there’s no reason to debate this except just pure politics,” Blunt added.
He told another Missouri TV station, KSHB that removing Trump from office was “not going to happen.”
