The impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate against Donald Trump remains ongoing. The impeachment proceedings against a former president could actually be the most partisan impeachment in U.S. history. Numerous Republicans are against it and Democrats launched the trial with the knowledge that they lack the 67 Senate votes needed for Trump to be convicted.
As this trial drags on, many senators are becoming fatigued with the matter altogether. Republicans, especially, maintain that impeachment managers are failing to make a solid case against the former president.
Yesterday, GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas also confirmed that under no circumstances will the Senate trial result in Trump’s conviction, reports Newsmax.
No Chance of Conviction on the Horizons
On Thursday, Sen. Cruz sat down with attorneys responsible for Trump’s defense in the impeachment trial. Following this meeting, Cruz also spoke with Fox News about the reality of what lies ahead as the impeachment trial plays out.

Per the Texas Republican, every single member of the U.S. Senate, Republican and Democrat alike, knows that “no chance” exists of Trump being convicted. Cruz then explained that House impeachment managers have woefully failed to show that Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors or broke the law in any way.
Cruz also pointed out that politically-fueled statements from top Democrats are comparable to remarks from Trump in the moments before the January 6 riots. Ultimately, the Senate trial that remains ongoing is merely a formality since the Senate knows how this story will end.
Moving Beyond Impeachment Proceedings
At some point, the impeachment proceedings will reach their inevitable end. Some projections are estimating that the trial could conclude as soon as tomorrow; others speculate that the impeachment trial will extend into the forthcoming week.
IMO some of the House managers’ case is getting too repetitive.

As Democrats continue on with a partisan impeachment that is destined for failure, many Americans are hurting. Union and pipeline workers that were laid off by Biden weeks ago are having a tough time. Businesses that are facing the prospect of more regulations from this White House administration are also working to stay above water.
In spite of the very real problems facing Americans, Democrats continue to prioritize grandstanding over policy and political theater over commonsense reform.
