[Ed. – Considering that the entire motivation for it is spite — the Democrats have been seeking to unseat Trump since before the 2016 election — it shouldn’t be hard for Republican senators to see the folly of a conviction after he has left office.]
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) late Friday night warned senators about the possibility of Americans’ leaving the Republican Party if they move to impeach President Donald Trump.
“I don’t often get ask my advice from leadership [about] how they should react. My unsolicited suggestion would be this: they will destroy the Republican Party if leadership is complicit with an impeachment or leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul explained to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.
Paul said that throughout the course of the Trump administration he has praised Trump when he believes the president is right and broke with Trump when he believes the president is wrong. But an impeachment would be detrimental to the accomplishments that came out of the president’s four years in office.
