Watch Florida Republican attempt to clarify why he thinks Trump impeachment trial is ‘silly’

In a really barely extra eloquent try to precise himself, Rubio stated he feels, “We have already got a flaming hearth on this nation,” and {that a} trial would quantity to “a bunch of gasoline.” Principally, simply one other manner of arguing {that a} trial would rupture unity efforts, though as Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi argued final week, ignoring all that’s gone is really what’s extra prone to sow division within the nation. Why? As a result of we’d like accountability. 

As of Sunday morning, at the very least one Republican sees the impeachment trial in another way than Rubio, nonetheless. We will take a look at extra of what Rubio stated under, in addition to what one in every of his friends within the Senate argued.

Rubio stated he does assume Trump “bears accountability for a few of what occurred” and that it was “actually a foreseeable consequence of all the things that was happening.” It will be fascinating to listen to what Rubio qualifies as “some” of what occurred when a gaggle of pro-Trump rioters surged into the U.S. Capitol and successfully terrorized elected officers. Rubio, as an alternative, harassed he thinks that’s “separate” from the thought of revisiting it and “stirring” it up. 

Right here’s that clip.

Rubio, nonetheless, dodged the meat of the query by declaring that he “actually get into the parlor video games of Washington.”

He did say that if he desires to be “again in the usSenate, I’ve to earn that each six years” and that he doesn’t personal his seat. Which is true, however would ring as a contact extra significant if Florida didn’t have rampant voter suppression points. 

Wallace additionally spoke to Sen. Mitt Romney in regards to the impeachment trial, posing the identical query to each Republicans. Did they agree with fellow Republicans who argued that the trial ought to be thrown out beneath the alleged foundation that it’s unconstitutional to convict a former president? Rubio stated sure, he’d positively vote to nix the trial, however Romney thinks the proceedings are constitutionally stable. (Which, in fact, they’re.)

“when you have a look at the preponderance of the authorized opinion by students through the years,” Romney defined, “the preponderance of opinion is that sure, an impeachment trial is acceptable after somebody leaves workplace.” Romney, who did vote to convict within the first trial, nonetheless, didn’t say how he would vote both manner a second time, noting they’ve but to really hear arguments and proof from either side.
