Ex-Romney Advisor Claims 30 GOP Senators Would Vote to Impeach Trump if Vote Was Secret

Former Romney and McCain advisor Mike Murphy claimed during a segment on MSNBC that 30 GOP Senators would vote to impeach Trump if the vote were held “in secret.”

To be clear, the vote WILL NOT be held “in secret” making Murphy’s point purely hypothetical.


Liberal Tim Wise claimed this shows “how terrified Republicans are of the right wing Trump cultists who comprise their base and are holding the nation hostage.”

Business Insider reports as many as 30 Republican senators would vote for the impeachment of US President Donald Trump over his request for Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, said a top GOP strategist during a cable TV news segment Wednesday night.

Mike Murphy, who helped run presidential campaigns for senators John McCain and Mitt Romney, said during an interview on MSNBC that a Republican senator told him their caucus would likely vote to remove the president if the votes could be kept anonymous.

With 33 Senate seats contested in the 2020 elections, Republican lawmakers risk infuriating pro-Trump voters with a vote to remove the president. At the same time, they could face the wrath of moderate swing voters who are far less supportive of the president

Of course, there is no prospect of a secret ballot. That means moderate Republican senators, such as Susan Collins of Maine, face a politically brutal choice as they run for reelection.
