During his Saturday appearance on Fox News' "Cavuto Live", Republican South Carolina Senator Tim Scott said there is “no way in the world” the GOP-led Senate would convict President Donald Trump based on what he’s seen from the House impeachment inquiry in the last couple of weeks.
“One thing is crystal clear, what we heard this week from the House was, no facts, no evidence, nothing that would lead to an impeachment,” Scott said.
“This is a place where I think all Americans wanted to know. Where is the fact pattern that leads to a conclusion of impeachment?”
He went on to point out the “inconsistencies” from House testimony so far from witnesses, including EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland, who testified that Trump told him there was to be “no quid pro quo.”
Watch Senator Scott's full remarks below:
“So, I am not confused,” said Scott.
“I am actually more clear that there is no way in the world the Senate can act and convict the president of impeachment because he seems to be innocent of an impeachable offense.”
Scott added that he would be “shocked” if the House doesn’t vote to impeach and send things to the Senate.
