Republican Party leaders say the impeachment trial will actually help the GOP come November.Republican Party on Friday professed to see only sunny skies ahead. “There is a strong and growing outrage among the general public,” Morton Blackwell, a longtime Republican National Committee member from Virginia, said at the group’s winter meeting. He said the impeachment would “boomerang” against Democrats , just it did with Republicans who impeached President Bill Clinton in 1999. “Clinton got more popular. … I think they made a mistake.” Jim Dicke, an RNC member from Ohio, said he thought public opinion was turning against Democrats, putting Republicans in a good position to hold the White House and Senate and win back the House. “My gut tells me it will help us,” he said. “You’re not attending a doom-and-gloom RNC meeting.” AP Photo/Susan Walsh In this Dec. 2, 2017, photo, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel speaks at a fundraiser with President Donald Trump. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh) Why RNC members believe the public is on Trump’s side is unclear. Recent polling, including the large sample survey by Pew Research , shows that just over half of Americans not only believe Trump did something wrong when he tried to coerce Ukraine’s president into investigating former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, but that he should be removed from office for it. At the president’s for-profit golf resort near the Miami airport, though, many of the 168 leaders of his party followed Trump’s lead in arguing that his behavior was completely above board. Jonelle Fulmer, an RNC member from Arkansas, said Trump had every right to look into the “corruption” of Biden’s son Hunter. Dicke agreed that Trump had done nothing wrong. “If a Democratic president did exactly the same thing that Donald Trump did, I wouldn’t have any problem with it,” he said. Virginia’s Blackwell would not defend Trump’s actions, but he did say that removal from office was too harsh a penalty. “I might not like it, but it’s not an impeachable offense,” he said, adding that he could not explain why Trump did what he did. “He’s Donald Trump,” he said with a shrug. RNC officials did not respond to HuffPost queries about how much they are spending in total to host their three-day meeting. The group paid the Trump National Doral Miami resort $169,763 on Nov. 6, 2019, in advance of the meeting. A similar meeting in May 2018 ended up costing the party $602,765. The RNC also paid Doral $84,822 to hold a lunch fundraiser there in June 2019. Trump is the sole beneficiary of the trust that owns the Trump Organization, and the Trump Organization owns his hotels and golf resorts — meaning that profits from the RNC’s use of his properties flow directly into his pocket.

Nope but IvankaTrump and her new voting machines will help. To the huge middle base in America, the Dems are reinforcing why Trump should be re-elected. Barf Half the country does not want president Trump out. They say that but not true Republicans ban together and help older people to get out and vote. Dems will have absentee ballots with criminal intent behind it
FTGOP What they say has little resemblance to the truth. What a farce of a government! USNatArchives GOP DonaldJTrumpJr PARISDENNARD mschlapp mercedesschlapp First honest reporting you’ve done since before the 2016 primaries. But you still can’t say PRESIDENT TRUMP can you there !!! BTW, do you still feature our POTUS in your entertainment section ? LMAO
Then why all the fear and anger coming from the GOP ?
Trump Visits His Golf Resort Where RNC Is Spending Another Half-Million DollarsRepublicans attending the RNC's winter meeting said they had no problem putting money into the president’s pocket. All the more reason to remove them for the positions. Republicans attending the RNC's winter meeting said they had no problem putting candy into the president’s pocket. 😤
Yeah right! Those Republican leaders are a disgrace to the USA! To stand by the pos in the WH bc they think they will rise above & have their jobs in November! They can be bought but the ppl can’t. Ppl are not stupid and more than half the USA will not vote for him! He will lose! When adjusted for illegal aliens and the mentally ill it’s about 15%.
This has nothing to do with GOP it’s about doing the right thing do we want a corrupted president? Absolutely not 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣seriously the citizens are literally watching the GOP in an active cover up for the president and they think that is going to help🤣🤣🤣They literally have the numbers to get him off but they are still covering for him🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
WANT TO BET!!!? Sure it will help Republicans lose control of the senate, help democrats keep the house No itvwill not!!! That half are illegals who shouldn't be allowed to vote and the liberals help them lose?
Trump’s Doral Resort Spikes Its Room Rates Ahead Of His RNC VisitThe doubling of rates may have increased taxpayer costs for housing Secret Service and other staff who traveled there ahead of the president&39;s trip. Orange man bad. 'Area hotel raises room rates during scheduled convention' Newsworthy?
That’s just advertising ... just cuz the rnc says it doesn’t make it true ... fact is the disgust towards the gop has only heightened ... so don’t go counting chickens before they hatch . Party of trump trying to hold onto the last of the brain washed cult. I don’t think the intelligent average Americans is going to allow another 4 years of this reality TV show. If they do, then they deserve everything that happens.
Republicans are so stupid they're betting their whole house on it. They are banking on the vast majority of Americans being stupid and not recognizing a sham trial when they see one. That alone is going to exact a very heavy price, a blue Tsunami in November. I’m not voting for anyone Republican at anytime ever....
The cultists will not cross the whims of Lord Orange Pud ... Uh no Republican’ts have forgotten their worst midterm beating in 50yrs? They’ve forgotten historic loses in Virginia/Kentucky last yr? Everyone outside the Republican media bubble can see what LoserDonald is and are motivated to send him back to his elitist country clubs full time!
it will help them thin the herd. there will be less of them controlling our government. the GOP has lost their way and ignored their history being taken over by a lunatic. That is a total lie yet again. The poll I filled out showed. 82% no IMPEACHMENT 11% for impeachment 7% not sure People are not stupid.
If The Senate Doesn't Stop Trump, Nobody Will, Dems Warn In Last Day Of ArgumentsThe presidency would essentially become all-powerful, Democrats said, if Congress doesn't remove Trump. The Sargent at Arms in the Senate answers the phone . Call:202-224-2341. Demand WitnessesAndDocuments GopKillingDemocracy LOL!! WE HAVE THE WHITE HOUSE. DEMOCRATS ARE IN NO POSITION TO GIVE ULTIMATUMS
😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂NO Will someone tell these deplorable republicans, the Biden's are not on trial and Americans don't care what happen in the last administration, it's over and done with . If you believe that, maybe you can be one of the 35 past cabinet members of the Trump Trogans. Oh, that sound like a name of a Condom. It's a prophylactic, in as much, like your tenure.
When Bolton releases his book, if there is daming information on Trump...it will not help. It’s just the partisan nature of current politics. Reps are happy that Dems put themselves in a bad spot with a poor impeachment spectacle. Will help them to early retirement. They are delusional too. Tell ' em they're dreaming
Of course. Getting rid of 45 helps everyone! Basically, yeah who cares what the American people want
Trump’s Doral Resort Spikes Its Room Rates Ahead Of His RNC VisitThe doubling of rates may have increased taxpayer costs for housing Secret Service and other staff who traveled there ahead of the president's trip. The art of the grift! Of course. He wants to suck more taxpayers' money into his own pockets. Increase the profit margin. realDonaldTrump DonaldJTrumpJr we don't profit off Trump being president. Sure you don't.
Dream on They will probably keep their president for a few more months, but they will lose the Senate. They say a lot of things. Dream On U Degenerates. God Still Rules. If God Says NO, He's Out. Of course they said it. What else are these Trump loving traitors going to say? That he’s unfit to hold the office, that he’s a narcissist, a pathological liar, a criminal, steals from charities. I guess that’s the Republican, GOP way. If you can’t win an election, steal it!
No not really. Just concentrate on Trumps lies for the past 3 years Karma Wow! You are dead wrong. Ha If impeachment for blackmailing Ukraine does help realDonaldTrump get re-elected then it is a very sad indictment of the USA. It is appalling enough that they elected a man who mocked a disabled person and bragged about sexually assaulting women te first time around.
Fox News Legal Analyst: ‘Ample’ Evidence To Remove Donald Trump From OfficeIn a new op-ed on Fox News&39; website, Andrew Napolitano debunked Trump&39;s "hoax" defense in his Senate impeachment trial. BS is bovine excrement. Distortions are distortions. Lies are still lies. democrat propaganda is still propaganda. Partisan politics is still partisan. Pettifogging is still pettifogging. trump is a jerk, but this impeachment is a hoax, and so wrong. Did Trump tell Nap he had a small dingy, pee on his bed or what?🤣😂
Because they know the elections will be flawed. They will cheat. OK OK, who spiked the punch and gave it to the Republicans? So still below half? Not True!!! R u fu...king crazy !!! We R coming to take Trump Out !! N everybody else .. We the People!!! Woke up!!! Don’t like Trump !! Never did !! 😜😂 You have to be talking about dumocrats
Ok 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 The silent majority is grossly underestimated. We don’t participate in the polls or go to rallies. We’re Sick of Anti Trumpers act like toddlers at the mention of his name. We hear you, we’re tired of the tantrums and slander. We’re letting you bury yourselves. Sure, okay. Keep telling yourselves that.
They are wrong!
Senators Dig In as Democrats Outline Trump Impeachment CaseHouse Democrats will again press the GOP-dominated Senate to remove President Trump from office when the chamber reconvenes in the third presidential impeachment trial in U.S. history. Schiff, Nadler and the Democrats are demanding Republicans gather more evidence and testimony, while simultaneously arguing that the existing evidence is 'OVERWHELMING.' Folks, this is what desperation looks like. Money talks and BS walks. Bloomberg combines both. The Dems seemed to of ambushed themselves. The evidence sounds wishy washy.
Abuser, is raping the country and would do it forever. They thought that in 2018, too. The impeachment trial isn't gonna help them like they think it will. Certain ones, perhaps, but not nearly as many as they think. For what? Where’s the proof of any wrongdoing? Liberals know they have no admirable candidate for the 2020 election & out of desperation they are unfoundedly accusing a duly elected POTUS of wrongdoing for the sole purpose of a power grab, same playbook for the past 3 years!
It's immaterial if 100 percent of hrc voters want the president removed. We're still not a Democracy (the vilest form of government ever devised) No it won't. A lot of them will lose their jobs. Especially when people start to realize that Trump had every reason to believe Biden was up to no good in Ukraine..
It’s not helping so far. They're taking a principled stance against fighting corruption.
Whatever gets them through the night Yes, it will help a lot of them go home... Republican Party leaders deeply misunderstand how angry millions of Americans are. We’ll see them in November, and every November, until their party no longer exists. It probably will. Much as the Trump/Russia thing made the Dems look like idiots. Or the fake dossier. Or the...well, pick a conspiracy theory that the MSM has peddled that vanished, seemingly overnight. You are inoculating Trump against scandal.
This is a sham trial in the Senate, no witnesses allowed and important evidence withheld. Ofcourse GOP and Trump are terrified that if witnesses are called and their testimony is broadcasted it will be horrendous for them but holding a sham trial is equally bad. FOH.. The end of our republic. Codifying that the POTUS can do whatever the fu-k he wants.
The GOP leaders heard the LevParnas Tape. They listened to a Russia-paid agent conspiring with the POTUS to remove a US Ambassador.... ... THERE ARE MORE TAPES.... ... If they're more incriminating, Republicans will be on record defending the greatest Traitor in US History. They’re right unfortunately
GOP leaders have a death wish that will soon be satisfied, as they embrace the fucking suicide bomber named Donald John Trump. BOOM! Yeah? They say a LOT of stupid shit. Or have you not noticed?
🙄 It's a dead heat during TraitorOne worst week-take nothing for granted. Its turning ppl i work with 🤣 sure... keep telling yourselves that Trump is the gop's only way to remain in power. Since the voting results show the proof w/o Gerrymandering gop would never see the light of day, there aren't enough progressive govs to swing the pendulum back left. I'm still bernie2020
They’re probably right. It may help in fundraising with their base, but the same can be said the Dems. They have to make their base all giddy about something. If the Republicans vote not to impeach & remove that SOB, they will be signing away the Presidency, Senate & House because the people of the USA that still believe in democracy & the rule of law will vote every Republican out of office that we can.
Um. What did you expect them to say?
Nothing but lies from the fake Americans, or should I say, Russians. Fake news zzzzzzz It will unfortunately They live in s bubble. An echo chamber. Nobody believes a fvcking word outta GOP mouths. Republicans lie like we breathe. I doubt that Puties going to help him They said that in 2018 too 🙄 Boy are they wrong. They’re igniting a huge BlueWave2020
