The 2022 mid-terms will tell the tale about where these Trump-excusing GOPers stand.
McConnell is going to vote to acquit, I saw in news today.
DT and McCarthy got into a shouting match during the Capitol break-in. McCarthy was begging Trump to call off the rioters. DT said "I guess they care more about the election than you do". At one point McCarthy yelled "who the f*ck do you think you're talking to?" But they are buddy-buddy again, I guess.
lani , DT also said they weren't his people doing the rioting.
I just read that the Senate voted to have witnesses. One article said the Dems wanted to dispose McCarthy and Tubberville about their phone calls with DT while the riot was going on.
And a few minutes later they worked out a deal for no witnesses. Under the deal, Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler’s statement on a phone call between Trump and House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy as rioters stormed the Capitol was entered into the trial record as evidence.
They are now doing closing arguments. I imagine the vote will be today and the trial will be over.
Don't know if I'll regret it but I just clicked to follow the twitter accounts of the President, First Lady, Vice-President, and Second Gentleman. Someone did a cute story about Jill Biden shopping for Valentine treats wearing a scrunchie and I decided it would be fun to follow her.
After the vote Mitch McConnell said Trump was responsible for the riot but McConnell felt they didn't have the authority to convict him because he was out of office. The House had the impeachment ready on 01/15 but McConnell shut down the Senate and said Trump will get a fairer trial once he is out of office, and he now says we can't convict because he is out of office.
mcconell knew what he was doing hypocrite of all time. now we need to end the filly buster Georia prosecutes in Fulton Count is hold a grand jury in Mar h and April to get the governor and secretary of state and the assistant under the secretary to testify/ She ism a good prosecutor. in a county that went for the Democrats

IMO, they should have led with the phone call, not finished with it. Maybe they'd have changed more minds if they'd let it sink in for a few days, that Trump was willing to let them die rather than admit he lost the election.
