and remove him from office if they could vote privately, saying that the numbers would definitely fail to reach a quorum for impeachment proceeding at the Senate.
Daniel Patrick Welch made the comments in an interview with Press TV on Saturday, after Flake ‐ a frequent critic of Trump ‐ predicted that close to three dozen Republican senators would back in private the Republican president’s impeachment.
"It’s nothing but public; It’s an absolutely and extremely public event, and there is no way on God’s green earth that 35 would vote publicly to convict this president, probably any president," Welch said.
"The whole thing is going nowhere, there is no way, you need 67 votes to convict in the Senate and there is absolutely no way to get there; so, it’s about the political theater, about chaining Trump to accept the narrative for the election campaign," he added.
