Facts, evidence, and witnesses. Good luck. The Democrats must lay it all out in the House hearings because the Republicans will ignore it all and the Senate trial will, at best, be moot.
It’s obvious that our Scofflaw-in-Chief will be impeached by the House, and he manifestly deserves it, but it’s just as certain that he will be acquitted by the Senate. The impeachment trial in the Senate is already completely rigged. At least half of the “jurors,” the senators, are themselves co-conspirators with the accused. Consequently, the Senate impeachment trial will bear a terrible resemblance to those trials, mostly of yore, in the South where an all-white jury simply would not convict the local Klansmen of murdering or lynching some black person. The evidence presented at trial be damned; it did not matter. Not only will the jurors in the Senate trial be co-conspirators with the accused, the evidence against our latter-day Grand Dragon, Benedict Donald, undoubtedly won’t matter for very much the same reason the evidence didn’t matter to those Southern juries. BTW, while Donnie may be a Grand Dragon, the Imperial Wizard is some Russian guy…
Be sure to remind your Republican Senator(s) of that similarity, and the esteem in which you will hold him or her if they vote to acquit.
