House Republicans are considering inflicting the ultimate defeat on the Democrats by completely erasing Trump’s impeachments from the books

From the moment former President Donald Trump took the oath of office six years ago, Democrats have had one goal in mind: impeachment.

First, with strong backing from the Justice Department, FBI, and legacy media, they claimed he colluded with the Kremlin to win the presidency. Their hopes were dashed when Robert Mueller’s 22-month witch hunt ended in failure in the spring of 2019.

Next, they picked up a phone conversation in which Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to investigate the Biden family’s business ties in the country. After a sham investigation, Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives.

Finally, a week after the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol raid, the House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump a second time for his alleged role in an “insurgency” Democrats insist to this day.

As we know, both impeachment trials ended with Trump’s acquittal by the Senate.


Watch: McCarthy’s big announcement will send leftists into complete panic: ‘The public should see it’

Well acc The Washington TimesHouse Republicans are considering scrapping Trump’s impeachment trial from the record.

When asked if he would be willing to introduce such legislation, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said: “We would look at it. … If you find that the latest information in the Russia document is a lie, and we observe what he has been through, I would understand why members would want to bring that up.”

The Times noted that 42 Republicans, including New York-based House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik, had backed a resolution exonerating Trump, but the Democrat-controlled Congress refused to vote on it.

Now that Republicans control the House of Representatives, it’s a real possibility.

Should Trump’s impeachment proceedings be scrapped from the record?

Georgia Rep. Andrew Clyde called both impeachments “inappropriate” and said he was “certainly interested in getting them off the books.” Texas Rep. Pat Fallon told the Times he was “definitely interested.”

The primary sponsor of the resolution was then-Rep. Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma, who won his Senate race in November. Mullin previously led a resolution to overturn the first impeachment trial as well.

But not all Republicans are so enthusiastic. North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop said, “I tend to think we need to focus on looking through the front window rather than the back.”

Texas Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro said such a move would be “a cover-up and a rewriting of history.” He added: “It wouldn’t surprise me at all. … They are blindly loyal [Trump].”

While scrapping Trump’s impeachments would be hugely demoralizing for Democrats, and that would be a nice thing, the support of 42 GOP lawmakers — about 20 percent of the Republican conference — isn’t enough to get that resolution moving. Erasing the record would require almost unanimous support from GOP members.
