(TheLibertyRevolution)- Senate Democrats don’t let little things like the United States Constitution get in the way of their agenda.
This week, the Senate voted 55-45 to set aside a point of order pushed by Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul that deemed the impeachment hearing of former President Donald Trump to be unconstitutional. And they even managed to get five anti-Trump Republicans to support their efforts too.
On Tuesday, Senator Paul raised a point of order reminding his colleagues that it is unconstitutional to impeach a president who has already left the White House, but Democrats refused to listen as they continue their efforts to stop President Trump from running for office again.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer moved to kill the point of order and only needed a simple majority to do so. The 55-45 vote against Paul’s point of order means the sham trial is expected to go ahead.

Despite the move being unconstitutional, the hearing is set to begin on February 9th. At 1 p.m., the Senate will begin hearings and President Donald Trump’s legacy will once again be dragged through the mud as Democrats wrongly claim that he incited a violent “insurrection” on Capitol Hill on January 6.
Democrats and some anti-Trump Republicans assert that violence seen on January 6, which was orchestrated by far-right and Antifa activists, along with a CNN reporter, was a result of speeches and comments made by the former president.
The FBI, however, has confirmed multiple times already that the violence was pre-organized on social media sites like Twitter and began before President Donald Trump finished giving a speech on Capitol Hill.
On the same day, President Trump also repeatedly called for calm on his Twitter account and told violent rioters to go home.
Despite the hearing going ahead, there is some good news.
Senator Rand Paul confirmed on Tuesday that the 45 Senators who agreed that the trial is unconstitutional are more than enough votes than are needed to acquit the former president and end the process.
The Senate just voted on my constitutional point of order.
45 Senators agreed that this sham of a “trial” is unconstitutional.
That is more than will be needed to acquit and to eventually end this partisan impeachment process.
This “trial” is dead on arrival in the Senate.

“This ‘trial’ is dead on arrival in the Senate,” he said.
