Trump is livid over his impeachment defense, but even Senate Republicans say it was bad and House Democrats did a better job.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said:

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) said:

The only thing saving Trump from conviction is that Senate Republicans are not an impartial jury. Forty-four of the fifty Senate Republicans voted that the impeachment trial was not constitutional, even though it clearly is.

Senate Republicans are so afraid of the imaginary power of Trump that they are refusing to serve as an objective jury. It doesn’t matter how terrible Trump’s defense is, or that Trump is clearly guilty. Forty-something Senate Republicans are going to line up and vote not to convict him, even though they are admitting that his impeachment trial defense is a disaster.
