Fox News senior political analyst tells ‘Fox News Primetime’ House acted in ‘desperate haste’ to impeach 45th president before he left office.

The “loathing which the constituency of the Democratic Party holds [for] Donald Trump” cannot be underestimated, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume told “Fox News Primetime” Tuesday.

The Senate voted to proceed earlier Tuesday with the trial of the former president on a single article of impeachment following approximately four hours of arguments delivered by Trump’s legal team and House impeachment managers.

At least 17 Republicans would need to vote to convict Trump in order to reach the two-thirds vote threshold, assuming all Democrats held the party line, but Hume said he finds it unlikely the trial will yield a conviction at all.

“I don’t think they believe they have any more chance of convicting Donald Trump than the Republicans really thought they could get a vote to convict Bill Clinton [in 1999],” he told host Mark Steyn.
