Top Senate Republican Tells Trump To Keep Jim Jordan Away From Impeachment Trial


Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) told Trump to keep Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, and the rest of the House Republican circus out of the impeachment trial.

CNN’s Manu Raju reported:

Sen. John Cornyn urges Trump to not select House Republicans to his legal team: “My advice to him would be: Let's not infect the Senate trial with the circus-like atmosphere of the House,” he told reporters

Cornyn added: “And I think there would be an increased risk of doing that if you start inviting House members to come over to the Senate and try the case."

Senate Republicans are trying to rush through the impeachment trial with minimal fuss and drama. The last thing that they want to see roll into town is Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, and the Trump conspiracy theory freak circus.

Republicans are trying to tell Trump to lay low, but since this is Donald Trump, as soon as he hears of Cornyn’s comments, he is likely to appoint Rudy Giuliani to manage his impeachment trial leaving the Republicans wishing for Jim Jordan.

Senate Republicans are warning Trump that they don’t want to take the trip to crazy town, but they might be ignored because nothing is stronger than Trump’s need to feel defended at all times.

4. Now that is funny.

We know that the GOP has no issues with open sexual predators, and their enablers, so it is likely that the jacket required rule will prevent Jordan from helping out.

6. Giuliani, diGenova, & Toensing

would be Trump's dream legal team. (And the Dems' as well!)

As far as legislators go, he's already got Leningrad Lindsey, so there'll be plenty of circus atmosphere. Graham has promised to make it "the Kavanaugh hearing on steroids."

9. If all else fails, there's always the lawnmower boy.

He could do a damn sight better than Rethug House members.......

He would most likely act like a gentleman, too.

11. Cornyn knows Trump is guilty

but like the rest of the cowards wants cover when McConnell torpedoes this. These circus clowns from the House will make the travesty obvious.

17. I think you are correct. He "loves chaos." Just like the last Iran/ Iraq debacle.

It did work to divert the news cycle. And the media laps it up, changing the narrative for the last week by hyper-focusing on one event and not really pointing out how illegal it was, and that Ingraham got more intel than Congress??

21. Chaos is a part of bipolar disorder

But I think it needs to get in line with all the other disorders, first.
