BREITBART NEWS: Former mayor of San Francisco, California, Willie Brown wrote an op-ed on Saturday claiming that “no one” thinks 20 Senate Republicans will vote to impeach President Donald Trump.
Brown wrote an op-ed for the San Francisco Chronicle charging that Democrats have sidelined their legislative agenda to impeach President Donald Trump, which will come to no avail in the 2020 elections. “If the goal was to damage President Trump by formalizing the impeachment inquiry, it’s Mission Unaccomplished for House Democrats,” Brown wrote.
The former speaker of the California Assembly noted that during last week’s vote to formalize the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, no Republicans defected and voted with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Further, two Democrats, Reps. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) and Collin Peterson (D-MN), voted with Republicans to oppose the resolution.
Brown wrote that “no one” believes that 20 Senate Republicans, the number of GOP lawmakers needed to flip and convict President Trump, would cast their vote to throw the president out of office.
