After 11 years of hosting, the dynamic duo is saying goodbye, as Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton join Underwood in CMA Awards hosting duties
Phil: "The Senate rules allow members to file, before the conclusion of the trial, motions to dismiss the charges against the president. If such a motion passes by a simple majority the impeachment proceedings effectively end." And that, folks, is how this will play out. The House will vote to impeach, succeeding with a simple majority pretty much along party lines. As soon as Articles of Impeachment are filed with the Senate, Republicans will move to dismiss the charges in their entirety before any evidence is presented; and with 53 Republican Senators, they will almost assuredly succeed. Thus stopping the impeachment in its tracks without even considering the facts, evidence, or issues. If by some chance, 3 Republican Senators break from the party line & vote not to dismiss, we'll see a rushed "trial". And it will result in acquittal because there's no way 20+ Republicans will break ranks and vote to remove Trump from office. House Democrats know this. And a few have even gone on record as saying they don't support impeachment because they know it stands absolutely no chance of success. But Pelosi & others are playing a different tactic...they're hoping an impeachment trial will help them in the 2020 election.
