Radio host Mark Levin says the impeachment “circus” that started in the House is about to come to an end in the Senate.

The conservative let loose for BlazeTV subscribers on Tuesday for nearly 40 minutes on House Democrats’ efforts to end the President Trump’s administration.

“The Senate is not a lap dog to the House of Representatives,” Mr. Levin said, The Blaze reported. “It’s the Senate’s job to be the check on the House. … The House [impeachment] managers want you to believe it’s the president of the United States who violated the Constitution. It is our contention it is the majority in the House that has violated the Constitution, because they can’t even state with specificity what exactly it is under the Constitution that the president violated.”

Mr. Levin, who served as chief of staff to Ed Meese, President Reagan’s second attorney general, then likened proceedings up until now to a show orchestrated by the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

“[House Democrats] want to turn the Senate into a circus much the way they had the House conduct itself as a circus,” he said.

The conservative’s commentary mirrored the stance of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which released an ad on the issue the same day.

“The Senate exists for moments like this,” the spot’s narrator says. “So it’s time for the adults in the room to have their seat at the table. Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats have had their turn — the sham is over. A fair trial starts now.”
