The Republican Plan To Change The Law To Protect Trump Is Already Dead

House MAGA Republicans came up with a plan to change the law to protect Trump from prosecution, but he is described as already dead.

Politico reported:

House Republican leaders are privately weighing support for legislation that would allow current and former presidents to move a state case to federal courts, four Republicans familiar with the effort confirmed to POLITICO. He already looks dead in the water.

….

But it is unclear whether the bill, led by Rep. Russell Fry (R.S.C.), has the votes needed to pass the House, according to three of the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity. And even if it could pass that chamber, it will almost certainly be dead in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

MAGAs in the House are pressuring Speaker Mike Johnson to allow a vote on the bill as a show of support and unity behind Trump, but that gesture will backfire on Republicans if they bring the bill to a vote and it doesn’t pass. .

The problem is that there are 19 Republicans in the House of Representatives who currently hold seats in districts that President Biden won in 2020.

For those Republicans, any vote to protect Trump would likely be career suicide. Republicans in Biden’s districts won and have been able to keep their seats by not being MAGA. If they voted to change the law to protect Trump, the vote would be used against them daily until the end of the 2024 election.

Not even House Republicans can help convicted felon Trump.
