It seems to me, that Mitch McConnell has WAY too much power. Someone had to come forward and say that YES, he could call the senate back, after he pretended that it was not possible. He’s refusing to call them back, so he can push the impeachment/trial on Biden. So trump gets to stay in office and Mitch doesn’t have to take any responsibility for anything. While he’s still in office the orange on can pardon people.
I don’t think the republicans who voted for impeachment should be lauded for doing THE RIGHT THING. They said ten republicans voted against trump…wow, that’s a big deal. The the interviewer said, “I know people won’t think so, but…that’s a big thing.” Never been done before. WHAT? After everything that the republicans have done, in their own party, and they are still too afraid of losing their own position, to DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. Apparently, republicans secretly say how afraid they are of retribution from the orange one.
HOW CAN THEY DO THEIR JOB IF THEY ARE TERRIFIED? Basically, all of the decisions they made in the past four years, are questionable, having been made under duress. They did what they did out of fear, not out of what was best for America. Not what was true. The orange one, and his offspring, threatened them saying they would come for them, if they defied them and didn’t vote against a fair and free election.
Oh well, we simply have to keep in mind that the republicans cannot be trusted. Not for any reason. They are too afraid. They are in bed with right wing extremists.
71% of republicans still think the president did a good job.
It’s still trump’s republican party
And a person who is still talking to trump said, “Mother’s will use trump as a cautionary tale, telling their children that if they lie, they will be like trump.” (Loosely translated) The person said that trump never tells the truth. And yet, none of the republicans stopped him. Not during all four years.
The House republicans stood for trump, up until the very end, even after the riot. Of course, some of them were organizers of the riot, but… They have lost credibility and respect…at least from some people.
The Senate should impeach him quickly. Then there will be a trial.
Also, hotel reservations, etc., around Washington have been cancelled, so that the next batch of rioters, if they show up, will have no place to stay.
And he has made about 3 million dollars asking for funds to overturn the election, which, of course, he kept for himself.
Oh, well, just another day in America.
