A seasoned Republican senator bluntly denied any chance of impeaching President Trump.

In an interview Friday, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) said “there’s not the time” for impeachment, adding “it’s obviously just a political point trying to be made.”

He called it a “ridiculous discussion” to have, pointing to the national unrest already inflaming the nation.

“We were never going to create that commission, it was an idea that wouldn’t ever reach a conclusion, we’re not going to impeach the President,” Blunt stated. “It’s a purely politically motivated thing on the part of the Speaker and Senator Schumer. I’m disappointed in them, but I’m not surprised.”

The senator added that he wants to spend his time on “things that have some possible chance of success.”
