Vulnerable Alabama Dem Sen. Doug Jones Will Vote to Convict Trump

Vulnerable Alabama Dem Sen. Doug Jones Will Vote to Convict Trump

One and done senator?

Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) announced he will vote to convict and remove President Donald Trump from office later today.

Experts have said that Jones is the most vulnerable Democrat up for re-election this fall.

Jones published his speech on his website before he spoke on the Senate floor. He said he spent “many sleepless nights” thinking about the trial, but “concluded that the evidence is sufficient to convict the President for both abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.”

He concluded:

“Senators are elected to make tough choices. We are required to study the facts of each issue before us and exercise our independent judgment in keeping with the oaths we take. The gravity of this moment, the seriousness of the charges, and the implications for future presidencies and Congresses all contributed to the difficulty with which I have arrived at my decision.

“This has been a divisive time for our country, but I think it has nonetheless been an important constitutional process for us to follow. As this chapter of history draws to a close, one thing is clear: our country deserves better than this. We must find a way to come together, to set aside partisan differences, and to focus on what we have in common as Americans. We are facing great challenges both domestically and internationally, but it remains my firm belief that united, we can conquer them and remain the greatest hope for people around the world.”

He knows he has a snowballs’ chance in hell of being re-elected [and Sessions is polling a double digit lead among Republican candidates], so he’s going to tow the party line and be a good little soldier.

    Trump is “greatest hope for people around the world.”

    fwiw its worth (and I hate getting all pedantic) its toe not tow.

    he’s not pulling the party line.

    one of my very few pedantic issues, sorry.

    others are “clip” used in place of magazine by people trying to kill the 2nd and decimate instead of annihilate when talking about taking out a group of people figuratively or literally.

    You nailed it. He does know he hasn’t a chance of getting re-elected and this is his way of hoping for a place within the sick Demorat party. What they have shown us these past three years is how low they can go when they are desperate. Talk of impeachment on Trump’s inaugural day and then the one fake claim of his corruption monthly. All were proven fake but they still use them to taint Trump. Last night Pelosi ensured Trump’s re-election because of her systemic hatred and classless act.

I have to wonder, what future is there in being a national-type Democrat in Alabama? Is he hoping for a seat on the SPLC board, or what?

    I suspect this was really a vote about the money.

    Voting “yes” means (D) money continues to flow into his campaign and even if he is defeated, the Dems will find him a cushy job later. Voting “no” means he’s completely sunk and no one will want him after the election.

    So think of his “yes” vote as his early retirement account.

    There is a lot of $$$ in off shore accounts controlled by the $PLC ??? Dems love that like flies love ?

All the right has to do is run a viable candidate and its one more GOP seat.

Why are there are no Democrats in Name Only, yet the Republican Party is infected with RINO’s?

Why have Democrats never put a justice on the Supreme Court who later turned out to be a conservative, but many a Republican nominee has turned out to be liberal?

What would have happened if Paul Ryan had ripped up Obama’s State of the Union speech?

    Two reasons:

    Intentional subterfuge

    No real moderates in the Dem party

    The Democrats simply name their factions different than the Republicans. Republicans tend to call their moderates RINOs unless they do something they like (Lindsey Graham is the best example of this). The Democrats have the Establishment and Progressive factions. While the Establishment is still the leadership, the Progressives have been on the rise.

Buh-bye, dolt.

One and done. Sessions will take it.

Snake Mitt voting to impeach.
What an act he put on, pretending he was gonna cry.

Senators are elected to make tough choices.

Laying the grounds for a career as a stand-up comic, obviously.

Romney gave Jones, Simema and Manchin cover.

During Romney’s announcement on the floor of the senate, that pregnant pause he took while he was reading his decision to vote against Trump wasn’t emotion. It was him thinking, “Am I really going to do this? Am I going to run a spike through my own head with this vote? Crap!! I can’t back out. I already gave Chris Wallace the interview three hours ago that I was voting to convict Trump.”

And Romney repeatedly hiding his spiteful decision behind religion was despicable.

Mitt Romney, backstabber extraordinaire will go down in history as a traitor to the constitution, as well as to the state that, and the president who, helped send him to the senate. “Pierre Delecto” proved what people already thought about him.

But in the end, what Romney did that was most useful to the democrats was by making his floor speech, he gave cover to the fake moderate democrats.
