The senators who voted for acquittal only did so because they hope for a shot at riding the greatest leviathan of moronic minions that has ever been assembled in American history.. once the orange insane clown finally falls off, of course. This leviathan was built up over years by the cynical craven conservatives starting with the ‘contract with America’ and running through the tea party as they disemboweled their own party to make it more appealing to the deplorables.
The very same republicans in the case of Idaho’s Mike Crapo, Iowa’s Chuck Grassley, Oklahoma’s James Inhofe, and, of course, the former majority leader Mitch McConnell voted for conviction of Clinton for a petty perjury pertaining to a presidential peccadillo and then voted for acquittal of the malignant narcissistic monster whose lies about the core of the democratic process they were charged with overseeing brought the wrath of his moronic minions into the very chamber where they sat!
McConnell’s vote for acquittal in the impeachment trial and subsequent speech as to why our 45th president was guilty as impeached is emblematic of the duplicitous ‘politics as warfare’ that the ‘republican revolution’ ushered in.. Now the majority of the seven senators who actually stood up to their demagogue have been censured by their state republican parties in an attempt at appeasement.. They would be ‘primaried’, if any but one from Alaska were standing for reelection rather than ready for retirement.
