Ex-Virginia governor: Trump could 'rob a bank' and Senate wouldn't convict him

ㅤ"Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) said there’s no way the Republican-controlled Senate would impeach President Trump even if House Democrats started an inquiry.
ㅤ’The issue for Democrats is, are we going to spend all our time talking about impeachment, which we know they can’t get him in the Senate?’ McAuliffe said Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’
ㅤ’I mean, he could rob a bank and the Senate would not convict him. It doesn’t matter,’ he added.’"

ㅤô¿ô …I would have agreed with McAuliffe six months ago. But Trump’s popularity hasn’t significantly improved and time is running out. I think it’s possible that the Senate will leverage the threat of conviction to force Trump to drop out of the 2020 race. If Trump doesn’t back down, he’s gone.

ㅤPictured: Steve Bannon

ㅤ”While some analysts have claimed that the defeat was a rejection of Trump’s economic nationalist agenda, Bannon suggested it was instead that Gillespie was still too tied to the establishment.
ㅤ’I think it was grafted on, who did Gillespie campaign with?’ Bannon asked. ‘He campaigned with George Bush and Marco Rubio and I think Condi Rice. Right? He had George Bush standing next to him, did he have Donald Trump standing next to him? No, he did not.”
