Senator Rick Scott says Democrats shouldn't bother with a second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.
"I think the impeachment is a complete waste of time," Senator Scott said. "If we want to get things done in this country, you don't go through impeachment of a former president. It's vindictive, it's a waste of time, it's constitutionally sketchy."
Scott's colleague, Marco Rubio, called the second trial "stupid." Rubio is up for re-election in 2022. Both Rubio and Scott are considered possible Republican presidential candidates in 2024.
Senators- including Scott and Rubio- were formally sworn in Tuesday as jurors for the upcoming trial set to begin the week of February 8th. The former president- who now lives at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach- is accused of inciting an insurrection.
