Sen. Chris Murphy Says There’s ‘A Small List’ Of GOP Senators Considering Impeachment
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe Friday, host Willie Geist asked Democrat Senator Chris Murphy if he had heard of a Republican in the Senate who’s considering voting for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Sen. Murphy confirmed that “yes” there’s a “small list on one hand.”

What he didn’t say was who exactly was considering the vote, however, he did acknowledge that there’s ‘about five’ Republicans in that camp.
“I don’t buy this secret ballot thing. If there was a secret ballot, there’d still be only a handful that would vote to impeach this guy,” Sen. Murphy told Geist.
On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the House to formalize articles of impeachment against the President. Citing corruption, Pelosi justified the action saying Trump left her “no choice but to act.”
