Trump tampered with witnesses. These Senate Repubs voted to oust Bill Clinton for doing just that.

............14 current Republican senators, some of whom were then serving in the House, voted either to impeach or convict Clinton on the obstruction charge. Some specifically cited his actions toward the witnesses when explaining their votes.


Mitch McConnell, Kentucky

... And, again, the undisputed evidence shows that the president took the path of lies and deceit.

… I am completely and utterly perplexed by those who argue that perjury and obstruction of justice are not high crimes and misdemeanors.

Chuck Grassley, Iowa

It is clear to me that the president committed serious crimes… These actions weren’t just outrageous and morally wrong. They were also illegal. They were a direct assault on the integrity of the judicial process.

Lindsey Graham, South Carolina

...[N]obody because of their position in society has the right to cheat and to get somebody to lie for them, even as the president. That means we’re not a nation of men or kings. We’re a nation of laws, and that’s what this case has always been about to me … He turned the judicial system upside down, every way but loose. He sent his friends to lie for him. He lied for himself. [See also: CNN.]

Richard Burr, North Carolina

I believe the facts presented by the judiciary committee prove beyond a reasonable doubt that President Clinton repeatedly lied to a grand jury and encouraged a witness before that grand jury to provide false information. The United States is a nation of laws, not men. And I do not believe we can ignore the facts or disregard the constitution so that the president can be placed above the law.

4. And those same hypocritical asshats

will vote to keep trump regardless of his sins.

Country. The people. Honor. Patriotism. Decency. Rule of law. Duty.

None of these things matter to those republicans who pollute the Senate.
