Mazie Hirono Calls Out Republicans As Impeachment Nears Its End: ‘They’re Going to Need to Find Their Souls

As the impeachment drama neared its possible end on Friday, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) was among many Democrats who complained that the Republican Party has become completely beholden to President Donald Trump.

Speaking to reporters in the basement of the Senate, Hirono said, “I think it’s kind of pathetic that we can only find three Republicans and we continue to call on them to find the courage to stand up to this president and to Mitch McConnell.”

Asked how confident she is that Democrats will be able to convince three Republicans to vote to hear from witnesses in the trial, Hirono said, “I’m not confident at all. It’s pathetic that there are only three of them and every single day that goes by and every hour that goes by, that seems to be in question.”

She added, “I think it’s a sad day for the so-called Republican Party, which is now the Trump party. They’re going to need to find their souls — good luck to that.”

The three Republicans that Hirono referenced who might vote for witnesses are Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Mitt Romney (R-Utah). On Thursday night, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said that he would not be voting to allow witnesses, essentially ensuring that Trump survives the impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a lengthy statement, Alexander said that there was no need for more evidence but offered a sort of consolation prize to the Democrats, saying “it was inappropriate for the president to ask a foreign leader to investigate his political opponent and to withhold United States aid to encourage that investigation.”

It’s still not clear exactly when the final verdict will come in, but Trump will almost certainly be able to boast to the Democratic majority in the House that he survived impeachment when he delivers his State of the Union address on Tuesday.

  1. “She added, “I think it’s a sad day for the so-called Republican Party, which is now the Trump party. They’re going to need to find their souls — good luck to that.”” Sen. Mazie Hirono

    Too late, Senator. They have already made their pact to sell their souls to the ?, for just a little more time in Washington.

  2. We found our soul confuction. Your party however, has found it’s soul with evil. You are the party of evil, hate, racism, lies, deceit, kkk, slavery, totalitarian control and oh so much more that is NOT good for America. Now we will have to listen to your party whimper, whine, double down on lies, hate and violence from all the criminals in your party (that would be everyone).

  3. Said the woman who has no soul. Or brain either, for that matter. Don’t need this twit pontificating to us.

  4. Crazy Mazie. She might have talked to her House colleagues on what a weak and BS case they made. Nope. It’s on others. Projection much Mazie?

    Mazie should be careful. This talk of “souls” might get some in her party accusing her of religiosity. They can’t have that! It might lead to considering the innocent human lives they murder through their pro-choice policies.

    full disclosure: if the Left wants to murder its future then I say go full speed ahead. Mental defectives and mutants. We already have too many useless people who should NOT be allowed to reproduce.

  5. How did she get here so quickly? AOC’s plan has her in a boat to Hawaii, doesn’t it?

  6. I think it’s a sad day for the so-called *Democrat* Party, which is now the *Schiff * party. They’re going to need to find their souls — good luck to that.
    What is unbelievable is that Democrats like Hirono intentionally overlook that they had their chance during their lengthy, whiny and ridiculous hearings. That was the time to call the fraud Bolton who is taped saying President Trump’s call was fine. Then writes the opposite in his book of lies. What a waste of time the past week has been.

  7. Not mentioned in any of the testimony was the supporting document which authorizes Presidents to withhold funds for that Nation to root out corruption in a Nation (Ukraine) with the worst corruption record in the World. [Per Senate Treaty 106-16; a treaty with Ukraine on “Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters ” signed by President Clinton with the treaty being signed in Kiev on July 22, 1998.]

    Also, the funds which were withheld in 2019 – and paid in September 2019 before the end of the FY as required by Law – were funds authorized for FUTURE expenditures for military material; NOT as stated by Schiff-face and his comrades that the funds were desperately needed and intended for IMMEDIATE needs. Schiff and company LIED as usual.
