    1. @Casual Inquisitor I don’t think they watched the expert defense team pick apart the anti-constitutionalists arguments

    2. @Hot Sauce
      Article 1 Section 4 Constitution of The United States
      States and I quote

      “The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of choosing Senators.”

      “The Congress shall assemble at least once in every Year, and such Meeting shall be on the first Monday in December, unless they shall by Law appoint a different Day.”

    3. Yes its been being repeated over & over lm not a constitutional scholar – but didnt know ld need to write down ecactly what part for people like this?

    4. They are appealing to the dumb Fs… hoping they will buy it… They have bought LIES before, and everybody knows it… it might work again… dahhhhh…..

    1. They are lost, Frump is guilty, “no person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present”. Seems easy enough, republican Senators vote to convict, or do not show up. Gives them cover, gets the job done. https://www.senate.gov/senators/contact Ask your Senator to either make a just vote, or stay home. Feel free to copy, paste, share this.

    2. @55k3v1n No, but clear thinking and well educated centrist Democrats and Republicans will.
      Fascism has no place in America

    1. @Muddy Water
      Gramps you should look for a Wal-Mart greeter who won’t stand you up.
      You obviously haven’t had fun in the linen aisle for awhile.

  1. Its indefensible. So, they try the “lets throw at the wall and hope enough of our senators feel compelled to use it as cover” approach.

    1. No January exception, Frump is guilty, Senators uphold your oath and convict him, or stay home the day of the vote. Please contact your Senators and let them know, you know what is just. https://www.senate.gov/senators/contact Those that are, or know influencers please feel free to copy, paste, share.

    2. @Special People I hope they do stay home. It only requires 2/3 of the senators in the house *on that day* to convict

    3. @C&B Jones Yep, but… If you were a Senator, and you saw the videos and lived through the attempted overthrow of the government, and took an oath, how do you face your family if you do not vote to convict Trump of Incitement of Insurrection ?

    1. @Interested party Please explain in detail…if you can. Sorry to make you think. You might need some puppy therapy first.

  2. I greatly respect George Conway for being an LP founder. How he manages to continue to be married to his wife is a mystery though.

    1. @Anna B the amount of children you have doesn’t correlate to happiness. I’m one of six children and have experience in the matter.

  3. If Trump isn’t convicted by GOP senators then they may as well tear out The Constitution section on impeachment as not worth the parchment its written on.

    1. @Norman Bates except this is how the constitution works and Trump is a great example of the greatest fears the founding fathers ever had which is a wanna be king as President. Impeachment can also mean barring someone from future office, and someone who refused to peacefully handover power like happened for the vast majority of our history should never be allowed to run again. It’s simple, unless you like to revise history to hide atrocities?

    2. @55k3v1n the insurgents tried to overthrow the government, are you saying that was ok? They killed a cop, that was ok? They smeared poop in the capitol, that was ok? How pathetic are you to think that it’s ok to throw a coup?

    3. @T D Some crazies planned days in advance, with no support from Trump, to join the peaceful protest and cause havoc. FBI warned about it ahead of time. If Trump planned an insurrection, he would have sent in an armed coordinated military-type group of well trained warriors, not some guy wearing a viking hat. Calling it an insurrection is a joke. And I care more for all the small business owners who have been terrorized by the Biden-supporting violent anarchist groups (BLM and Antifa) for the last 8 months than a bunch of corrupt politicians

  4. william belknap was impeached AND convicted by the house and senate after he resigned in 1876. the precedent is there

    1. Yes, they first control the media, take away free speech, demonize all opposition, then hunt down the dissenters ~ Communist Playbook.

    1. 35 people,mostly Blacks, got buried for Demoncrat riots last summer. You fine with that? Don’t see anyone crying for them.

    2. His family came forward the capitol bldg incident was NOT the cause of death – their just playing it to the hilt to suit their needs

  5. Proverbs 17:15
    “There is nothing God hates more
    than condemning the one who is innocent
    and acquitting the one who is guilty.”
