Censuring President Trump: McConnell Needs To Squash This Bad Idea Before It Goes Anywhere

Manchin Calls for Censure of Trump:
Senator Joe Manchin, a moderate Democrat, on Monday called on Congress to censure President Trump as he remains undecided on whether to vote for acquittal in the impeachment trial.
“What the president did was wrong,” the West Virginia Democrat said on the Senate floor Monday, but he added, “I see no path to the 67 votes required to impeach.”
“However, I do believe a bipartisan majority of this body would vote to censure President Trump for his actions in this manner,” Manchin said. “Censure would allow this body to unite across party lines, and as an equal branch of government to formally denounce the president’s actions and hold him accountable.”
Manchin, who represents a state Trump won by a large margin in 2016, plans to share with senators a censure resolution, which would rebuke Trump for his behavior toward Ukraine but not remove him from office.
