House Republicans Want To Eliminate Trump Trials

House Republican Party leaders are fighting to pass legislation that would eliminate impeachment proceedings against former President Donald Trump.

However, the Republican-led battle will face conservatives, who are pushing for a vote to block this legislation.

“It should definitely go to the floor and be removed,” said Rep. Byron Donalds, a Republican from Florida, a member of the Freedom Caucus and a close Trump ally.


Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Georgina, said she hopes the legislation is finalized and passed before the August recess, according to Politico.

“These are impeachments that should never have happened, so we would like to eliminate them,” he said.

Trump’s impeachment elimination proposal was also proposed last month by a group of House Republicans. Conference chair Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., introduced legislation last month designed to erase Trump’s impeachment trials from the Justice Department’s record.

McCarthy puts his presidency on the line

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy would be in a no-win situation. The Republican will have to organize the vote to pass the legislation or could provoke an incessant attack from Trump.

McCarthy has reportedly promised the Republican Party to eliminate Trump’s impeachment trials by September. This issue once again challenges Chairman McCarthy’s ability to hold the House together.

Some Republicans don’t want to put their district at risk

The decision to pass the legislation poses a risk to some moderate Republicans who are trying not to be directly linked to Trump.

A Republican lawmaker who preferred to remain anonymous told Political that he will “vote against the removal and work to get other Republicans to follow his decision.”

“We cannot change history. I mean, that impeachment vote happened. And I just don’t think we should get involved in the kind of cancel culture that tries to whitewash history,” the Republican lawmaker said.

Opponents of the legislation say impeachment has never been erased in US history, and Trump should be no exception.
