The assertion that enough Republicans will join with Democrats tomorrow to censure President Donald Trump should be viewed as speculation, not confirmed.
However, I wanted to share the information while it may do some good.
The alleged plan involves censuring Trump for his remarks that “all sides” share the blame for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia last week.
Only one U.S. president has been censured by the United States Senate. In 1834, while under Whig control, the Senate censured Democratic President Andrew Jackson for withholding documents relating to his actions in defunding the Bank of the United States. As a partial result of public opposition to the censure itself, the Senate came under control of the Democratic Party in the next election cycle, and the censure was expunged in 1837.
The obvious worry is that John McCain and other Republicans will join with Democrats to censure the President.
