With mere days into the Senate impeachment trial, most Republicans are already growing weary of it.

Things got off to a lackluster start when Bruce Castor Jr., the head impeachment lawyer for Trump, delivered some of the worst opening remarks ever. Then, Democrats for impeachment yesterday were forced to retract incorrect statements involving Sen. Mike Lee.

The kickoff of the Senate impeachment trial has not changed the ultimate reality. Democrats do not have the necessary 67 votes to convict the former president. Hence, Newsmax confirms that most Republicans are developing an indifferent disposition towards these impeachment proceedings altogether.

Where Senate Republicans Stand on the Impeachment Trial

Many GOP senators maintain that the case for Trump’s conviction from prosecutors is redundant and predictable. The trial started with 44 Republican senators expressing their view that the proceedings are unconstitutional in the first place since Donald Trump is no longer president.

GOP Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin stated that any further impeachment proceedings will be “tedious” and uninteresting. Johnson also called for prosecutors and Trump’s defense team to limit their arguments to a few hours and then drop the whole thing altogether.


Republican Sens. Jim Inhofe, Josh Hawley, and others shared similar sentiments. At the end of the day, none of the statements or arguments being presented are going to change any minds. Most, if not all, of Senate Democrats will vote for Trump’s conviction; meanwhile, most Republicans will vote for the 45th president’s acquittal.

At the end of the day, the necessary 67 votes for conviction do not exist and the impeachment proceedings are not changing this reality whatsoever.

No Path to Conviction

When Democrats forced through this impeachment trial, they knew that no path to a conviction of Trump existed. Yet, the Democrats are doing it anyway for the purposes of political theater and grandstanding.

During a press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi professed that the impeachment trial would test the Senate’s character. She then claimed that a Senate that votes for conviction is a “courageous” Senate, whereas a Senate that acquits Trump is “cowardly.”


Most Americans are able to look at the numbers, the votes, and understand that acquittal is the resulting outcome of this trial. Meanwhile, Republicans in the Senate are calling out the left for spending time on a doomed-from-the-start impeachment trial, rather than on policies to better America.
