    What would Trump do if a Republican Senator came out in support of impeachment?

    It has been recently pointed out that Donald Trump is donating large sums of money to Republican Senators. Senators who will likely need to vote to convict him if and when he is impeached. According to at least one Ethics Lawyer from the Bush administration this is Felony Bribery.

    Conservatives are trying to claim that the money being given is not contingent on their vote for impeachment so it's not a quid pro quo, but come on. Who are you kidding here?
    Obstruction of Justice also applies to overt coercion of court or government officials via the means of threats or actual physical harm and also applying to deliberate sedition against a court official to undermine the appearance of legitimate authority.

    Where’s the option for “execution”.

    I mean after all, speaking against Trump, past, present or future would make one “human scum” and well, such treasonous acts like supporting the rule of law and integrity of the office of the President should be met with the harshest possible punishment, maybe we could also “take out their family” as well.

    What kind of stupid @$$ poll is this? Seriously, every time I see a thread like this (created by a Leftist), I swear the IQs of these people continue to drop. This person sounds like a dumb@$$. There is NO intelligence behind this. I understand not being a fan of the president, but GOOD GOD have a smart person standing over your shoulder to help you type things like this thread out. At least make it where both sides are represented. Anytime someone is genuinely curious you would have something along the lines of him saying the senator is a disgrace and a part of the swamp. That's not throwing a hissy fit. That's a statement with the tone of disappointment. That makes more sense.

    It is hard to believe there is no quid pro quo because in order to receive the funds, the Senator has to sign a statement that the inquiry is undemocratic and unprecedented. Stating their "out" to vote agains impeachment.

    Hissy fits work.

    Ask Newt.

    We're just playing by the rules he laid put for you to follow.

    And you don't like it.

    Yet we have been on the receiving end of it since 1990. This has been the cry of hannity and Beck and rush and oreilly and all of fox opinion. That we are an existential threat to the constitution and America.

    Your fellow citizens.

    But when we simply reflect it back on you you get all flustered and "Oh, my!".

    Sucks, doesn't it?

    The Republican Senate Majority is fifty-three to forty-seven. There's plenty of time for circumstances (and public pressure) to change minds. Only four Republicans need to change their vote for it to be a majority vote, and twenty to convict...

    He would tell Utah voters that they deserve a better Senator.

    It is a hissy fit, albeit a justified hissy fit. Hissy on, Mr. President, hissy on!
