This afternoon, via Twitter:
Senator Roy Blunt @RoyBlunt
Since day one, the Democrats’ efforts to impeach the president have been completely driven by politics.

Some of the responses:
“Since day one” is not really a very good refutation of the FACTS that Trump extorted an ally fighting Russia to start an investigation on one of Trump’s political opponents. The only reason Trump’s scheme didn’t work is that he was caught. Do you disagree with these FACTS?
Vote to convict, Senator. You know it’s the right thing to do.
Missourian here. It’s not political, he broke his oath. The only ones playing politics here is the right. Whipping votes in the house and now making it clear they will not be impartial in the senate. You have no integrity.
And your reticence to debate legislation is too.
You could ask #MoscowMitch about that.
Merrick Garland. The Constitution. Congressional Oath. #IMPOTUS
I think they were driven by the president breaking the law.
No. They’ve been driven by Trump’s continual invitations to foreign nations to interfere in our elections on his own behalf.
I can’t believe how far you have fallen, and all this to protect the type of man we teach children to avoid.
Nope! Driven solely by his corrupt and illegal behavior. Most corrupt president in history.
Uh, no. He is impeached because he violated his oath of office and obstructed a legitimate congressional investigation
Pretty much the same way you carry yourself. Always political not what’s best for MO.
No. Bringing charges against a POTUS who bribes or attempts to bribe a foreign leader to interfere in a U.S. election is NOT political act.
No, but your protection of Trump has been entirely driven by politics and cowardice. Vote to convict and remove when the articles get to the Senate.
Furthermore, considering what you treasonous pack of racists did to Barack Obama’s nominees you have no room to talk.
how about a town hall to discuss? if you are SO confident he did nothing wrong, you shouldn’t have a problem explaining it to us in person.
Not gonna happen. Ever.
Missourian here. Respectfully, the Dems are honoring the facts. The president needs to be removed from office.
Country over party.
Dignity over dollars.
Pot? Oh, Pot? Do you hear the kettle calling you black?
You would be factually incorrect. Many communities offer free/low-cost adult ed courses in subjects like American Gov’t, Civcs, etc.. Might want to look into it.
The odds of sounding like an uneducated fool, as you do here, would decrease dramatically.
You have turned your back on the Constitution and the country in order to protect a criminal potus and your corrupt party
No Sweetie, I want him impeached because he’s an unethical putz.
Senator you are tarnishing you’re reputation and I’m so ashamed of my state.
Bullshit! The guy is corrupt as hell! Aren’t you from the show me state? Show us the witnesses. You dishonor the process!
He has worked himself into impeachment like a lemming on a cliff.The Russian back channel, firing Comey & guessing giving more secrets to Putin than just Israeli information.
You are covering bc he has done far worse than we know at this time. But, you know.
Still waiting for an actual town hall meeting by you.
Senator, I live in Missouri. And you are full of crap.
Driven by the fact that he’s an unrepentant criminal. That makes you an accomplice.
You’re a liar
That was blunt.
