My last thought admonishing Senators to vote according to their oath of office did not take into account that they are politicians. And politicians are always more concerned with the next election than what is transpiring today.
This fact hit me when I see messages like :
Supreme Court declares Trump emoluments lawsuits moot
Trump sends a message to Senate Republicans ahead of his trial
A top political aide to former President Donald Trump spent the weekend quietly reassuring Republican senators that the president has no plans to start a third party — and instead will keep his imprint on the GOP.
The message from Brian Jack, Trump’s former political director at the White House, is the latest sign that Republicans considering an impeachment conviction will do so knowing that Trump may come after them in upcoming primaries if they vote to convict him for “incitement of insurrection.”
and comment like the trial is moot or not needed now.
Unfortunately, this is probably the way it will play out.
Have a nice day!
