Kaine: Trump Impeachment ‘Not the Right Prioritization of Our Time’

January 27, 2021

After Sen. Rand Paul forced a vote on the Senate floor questioning the constitutionality of impeaching a former president, Sen. Tim Kaine told reporters on Monday that a second impeachment of former President Trump may “not be the right prioritization of our time” — but only because the Senate likely won’t convict.

“To do a trial knowing you’ll get 55 votes at the max seems to me to be not the right prioritization of our time,” Kaine said. “Obviously, we do a trial. Maybe we can do it fast, but my top priority is COVID relief and getting the Biden cabinet approved.”

Of course, the real reason a second impeachment “may not be the right prioritization of our time” is because it’s a massive, partisan waste of time and taxpayer money, all to satisfy the left’s bottomless, vindictive retribution against a political opponent who threatens their agenda.

Reports also suggested that Kaine and Republican Sen. Susan Collins are contemplating using the 14th Amendment to bar Trump from holding political office again.

Kaine, you will recall, was the power-mad Hillary Clinton‘s running mate in her failed 2016 bid for the presidency, which was thwarted by Donald Trump.
