Republican Senator from Tennessee Marsha Blackburn has defended Trump against Democrats pushing forward with the impeachment inquiry after making a mountain out of a mole hill with the call Trump made to Ukrainian President Zelensky.
Despite President Trump releasing the full transcript of his call with Zelensky and the transcript turning up no quid pro quo evidence of Trump improperly pressuring Zelensky to investigate Biden’s son like Dems say he did, the witch hunt continues.
Speaking about this, Blackburn pointed out this isn’t the only time Dems have lost.
She called Democrats, “sore losers” and pointed out that Americans aren’t “blind” to Democrat “obstructionist tactics” in a series of tweets before she made an appearance on Fox News, which you can see here:
The Leaf Chronicle has more to say about Blackburn's stance on the impeachment fiasco:
U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn said Thursday morning she has not yet read the whistleblower’s complaint that prompted House Democrats this week to launch an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, but she does not believe the president asked for any improper favor from the Ukrainian government to interfere with the 2020 election.
On a phone call with reporters Thursday morning, Blackburn minimized the complaint, a document in which an unidentified whistleblower outlined concerns over a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky in July.
Blackburn noted she understood the whistleblower “did not hear the phone call.”
The whistleblower report was declassified earlier in the morning, though the White House released a transcript of the July 25 call on Wednesday, the same day Blackburn spoke on the Senate floor and referred to Democrats’ impeachment attempt as a “breathless revenge scheme.”
“If they move forward with it, they are going to do this at their own risk of alienating a lot of America,” Blackburn said Thursday, referencing polls from recent months that showed a majority of Americans did not support impeachmentat the time.
“Based on the transcript that was released yesterday, it seems that the House Democrats might have jumped the gun on this one."
“There is nothing in the report that is an impeachable offense, in the transcript of that phone call," she said. "When you look at the transcript and you read through that, there is not anything in the transcript that is a quid pro quo.”
Sen. Marsha Blackburn also slammed the impeachment inquiry on the Senate floor one day after Nancy Pelosi announced it.

On this, WKNO said:
Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn says the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump is nothing more than political theater.
The Middle Tennessee Republican took to the Senate floor a day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the probe would go forward.
Blackburn says Tennesseans who called into a tele-town hall see it the same way.
"They see this for what it is: vitriol, anger, jealousy, spite," Blackburn said. "They know that President Trump and a Republican-led House and Senate delivered much-needed tax and regulatory relief."
