“I’m disgusted with the Republicans in the Senate,” Constitutional Scholar and conservative commentator Mark Levin declared Wednesday, after Democrats delivered articles of impeachment to the Senate for trial.
Commenting on LevinTV, Levin said Democrats’ entire impeachment effort is “a set-up” and that the Republican-controlled Senate shouldn’t give it credibility by even holding a trial.
“How can anything be ‘fair and just’ with the Democrats involved?” Levin tweeted, slamming Democrats for first holding a one-sided inquiry in the House – but, demanding impartiality and fairness in the Senate trial.
In an embedded video clip, Levin says he’s incensed that five Republican senators want to legitimize Democrats’ sham impeachment by calling witnesses:
“I’m disgusted with the Republicans in the Senate. You got five of ‘em who want witnesses – so, that means they want to give their imprimatur, their seal of approval, their rubber stamp to the process that went on in the House.
“I know, they’re going to say, ‘Oh, it was terrible, but, we’re going to have’ – and I keep hearing the Republicans say this – ‘we’re going to have a fair trial and a just trial.’
“There should be no trial!”
“Fair and just trial? When you get corrupt articles of impeachment from a corrupt Democrat party in the House?
“It’s a set-up!”
