Donald Trump’s impeachment seems more likely by the day. On Wednesday, one Republican senator admitted that 30 senators would vote for impeaching Trump if the vote was done in secret.
Republican consultant Mike Murphy revealed the senator’s remarks on MSNBC Wednesday.
“It’s a classic shakedown. That’s going to be the argument,” Murphy said. “These Senate Republicans, should the Democrats vote impeachment which is far more likely than not, are going to be pinned down to a yes/no answer.”
Murphy went on to note that many Republican senators would lose their seat in the upcoming election if they failed to support impeachment.
“The politics of it will get worse and worse for Trump,” he pointed out. “One Republican senator told me if it was a secret vote, 30 Republican senators would vote to impeach Trump.”
