Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., tells ‘Fox News Sunday’ the Trump impeachment will be ‘bad’ for the country and ‘stir up’ additional chaos.

An increasing number of Republican senators say they oppose holding an impeachment trial for former President Trump.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., told “Fox News Sunday” that the upcoming trial of Trump is “stupid” and harmful for the U.S., even if he was responsible “for some of what happened” at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

“Well, first of all, I think the trial is stupid. It’s counterproductive,” Rubio said Sunday. “We already have a flaming fire in this country, and it’s like taking a bunch of gasoline and pouring it on top of the fire.”

House Democrats will walk the impeachment charge of “incitement of insurrection” to the Senate on Monday evening. They hope that strong Republican denunciations of Trump after the Jan. 6 riot will translate into a conviction and a separate vote to bar him from holding office again.
