  1. You don’t have to be an architect with a law degree to draw a straight line between Trump and certain GOP members given the events leading up to and on January 6 to figure out their end goal. Keep Trump in power by forcefully taking over one branch of The US Government so Trump could declare martial law, a national emergency and remain in power. That’s why certain GOP members have been fighting so hard not to have this hearing. DISGRACEFUL!

    1. Article I Section 3 Clause 6 , “no person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present”. Seems easy enough, republican Senators vote to convict, or abstain and blame it on a process issue. Gives them cover, gets the job done. https://www.senate.gov/senators/contact Ask your Senator to either make a just vote, or abstain. Spread the plan if you agree

    2. @Special PeopleReally? But we all know Trump and his enables aka Special People, will go rabid with nothing less than an acquittal.

    1. The Republicans are scared of the Republican voters
      What they don’t realize is they should be scared of the independent voters who they have turned off

    2. This is a no win situation for Democrats and most importantly to the American people. If Donald Trump gets impeach there will be chaos in the streets similar to what BLM and Antifa did in the summer billions of dollars of property damage and many people would die. If Donald Trump gets impeach for inciting violence then Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Chuck Schumer, AOC, Cory Booker, and many more Democrats will be impeach. If you don’t think Democrats hasn’t incite violence then you only been watching fake news.

    1. @Dogs are Fun Good point, but I got a better one. If Messenger RNA vaccines can be made for this virus, why not for HIV, HPV and a hundred others. It’s a scam.

    2. @robideu A hundred others. Any clue how many more vaccines our babies are getting now as opposed to 40 years ago? All the childhood cancers, autism, neurological disorders. Now they’re pushing vaccines on adults for every little thing you can think of. People survived w/o vaccines of any kind and anyone who believe a vaccine ever prevented any disease has been brainwashed,,,, just what they wanted to get us to this sad day in history. We’re screwed.

    1. These people are all very lucky “both” sides didn’t come together to overthrow. Keep pushing it hard enough maybe they’ll get their wish some day.

  2. Marco Rubio, Rich Scott, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Ron Johnson and many other GOP senators and house representatives are presenting for QAnon, Proud Boys. They are proud to defend Trump’s insurrectionists.

    1. @Sam Harris dude I’m an independent!!! What has Trump done that was “common sense”. Explain that one to me?? Examples please

    2. There is one thing I wonder about. This whole coup failed because the rioters were so poorly organized. They almost made it but failed in the last minute. Why didn’t Trump send professionals from Blackwater instead to take the Capitol? Betsy DeVos was his secretary of education at this time and her brother is Erik Prince, founder of Blackwater.

    4. @Rino Ponce: Yeah, go for it, put your own country on fire. In the end you will rely on foreign aid from China & Europe just like Yugoslavia in the 1990s.

    1. Like that Greene chick? They elected these toads because of who they are and will do so again because THIS IS AMERICA!!!

    2. @Richard Barry Because we know there was shenanigans. Not fraud but suppression. They tried so very hard to do it this time as well.

    3. All of the Republican Senators who will vote to acquit Trump are idiots. If there is one more MAGA extremist riot, those on record still supporting that nonsense will lose their re-election bids. Trump won’t be there to abuse his power to cover things up and spin it as a Democrat/media “hoax.” Over the next few years, the news will be peppered with reports of Trump and his cronies’ legal troubles. Enjoy the brief remainder of your political careers, morons.

    1. @Richard Batchelder so your still just projecting your dear leaders failures on an administration that just took office at the end of January. Your acting like a petulant child and ill ask you to grow up or shut up.

    2. @Karen Balle Antifa/BLM with Trump gear on.!!! but you will NEVER admit that could be a possibility .?? eh.?!

    3. @Karen Balle ..Joe NEVER had a plan… ALL this will peter out in a couple of months, Just like Trump said.!!!

  3. That airport mob shook Lindsey to his core. Now he’s like, “There’s nothing to see here”

    Such a “Patriot”

    1. +INSTANTDOPELORD Flimsy Graham is such a flake that he will bow down to anyone and kiss their butt as long as he gets to stay a U.S. Senator. American’s need to vote him out along with McConnell, Hawley, Johnson, Cruz, and any others who choose not to stand by their oath of upholding and defending the U.S. Constitution!

    2. Love how the GOP throws that word around, “patriot “. Laughable. They usually apply the word “patriot” when soliciting campaign funds.

    1. That’s witty, but don’t lose sight of the many very decent folks who are patriotic senators. . E-book: ‘Right Wingers Duped’ articulates further.

    2. This is a no win situation for Democrats and most importantly to the American people. If Donald Trump gets impeach there will be chaos in the streets similar to what BLM and Antifa did in the summer billions of dollars of property damage and many people would die. If Donald Trump gets impeach for inciting violence then Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Chuck Schumer, AOC, Cory Booker, and many more Democrats will be impeach. If you don’t think Democrats hasn’t incite violence then you only been watching fake news.

    1. @J Groovy – that employee has to actually be guilty of the crime!
      In addition, I believe that those who lie against the employee in court should be punished.

    2. @Ron Swanson Makes no sense. Republicans argued that the trial that determines guilt or not itself was unconstitutional because he was already out of office. If he had been in office – when McConnell refused to hold the trial – if found guilty, he would not be eligible to run again. Duh.

    1. I would prefer if we removed all republicans in 2022. Vote em into oblivion. The few with moral fiber can become independents.

    1. @Joshua Flaugher – Maybe Richard Batchelder below is correct. All I can say is watching Morning Joe is a bigger waste of time than the impeachment trial. Instead of caffeine I think Melatonin would be a better solution.

    2. Literally to the T. Capital T TRAITORS!!!!! Maybe there needs to be a new impeachment law for senators and house members.

  4. No more “beacon of democracy”, no more “moral high ground”, no more “country of law and order”. All it took was 4 years and one morally bankrupt man and his pathetic minions to lose it all.

    1. Greetings from Switzerland. This is exactly what we think here in Europe!! How could your country fall for such a worthless person? It’s the same question that the germans have to ask themself after second world war.

    2. @willi tell any democracy, even Switzerland it’s just 10 bad years from being a dictatorship. You have to fight for democracy every day.

    3. @Mac Mcleod That’s absolutely true. America is in the middle of this fight now. And it’s obvious that in this case the republican politicians are the enemy!!

    4. @willi tell many Republicans have left the party and continue to leave the party. But the way our electoral college is set up means Republicans have a strong advantage in selection of senators and the Judiciary.
      At this point, I think over half of what is left of the Republican Party are Trump supporters who favor Trump as president for life.

  5. Americans need to realize that Republicans like Rick Scott, Rubio,Holly,Cruez, Graham are in it for the power and money and they will say or do anything without shame to hold onto both

    1. For their despicable actions, I hope Americans will take all these republicans to task. They don’t care for America’s Constitution and Democracy. Therefore they don’t deserve to serve the American people.

  6. But they weren’t watching: they doodled, they looked away, they read papers, they did anything but look. They do not care.
