Senate Dems Might Acquit the President

( – The majority of the House of Representatives was on board with pushing the impeachment trial against President Trump. While there has been a little less certainty in the Senate, many are expecting Trump to be acquitted of the charges against him. That may very well be with a handful of Senate Democrats who are considering an acquittal vote.

Even though House Democrats started the impeachment against President Trump, not all Senate Democrats are on board with pressing charges. Some of these Democrats are in swing states that Trump won in 2016. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) are all open to the idea of not removing him from office.

Manchin and Jones have both publicly stated that they’re considering acquitting the president on one of the two charges against him. Sinema has yet to share her thoughts on how she would vote.

Republicans already have the Senate majority, though some of them are open to voting to impeach Trump. The possibility of Trump being convicted and removed from office seems less and less likely, although possible. Even with the heavily partisan nature of these proceedings, there’s still an element of uncertainty regarding Trump’s future.
