Fox News host Chris Wallace revealed on Fox News Sunday that a powerful Republican confided in him that there’s a 20% chance enough Senate Republicans will vote with Democrats to remove President Trump from office if he is impeached.
Per the Daily Caller:
During an interview with acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney Sunday, Wallace questioned the Republican support for Trump in the upcoming impeachment battle.
After mentioning lack of Republican support for Trump’s recent actions in Syria, Wallace said, “I talked to a very well-connected Republican in Washington this week, somebody whose name you would know well, who says that if the House votes to impeach, and it gets to a trial in the Senate, there is now a 20% chance, he believes, obviously it’s just an estimate, now a 20% chance enough Republicans will vote with the Democrats to remove the president.”
Mulvaney called it “absurd,” then tried to move on to Syria.
“No, let’s deal with the issue of whether Republicans … you’re losing your support,” Wallace shot back.
Do you think Mulvaney’s confidence in Senate Republicans is misplaced? And how do you feel about his job performance given last week’s news conference where many commentators, including Sean Hannity, believed his remarks gave ammunition to Trump’s political enemies looking to prove a quid pro quo relationship between the White House and Ukraine.
