I have said all along: "Trump didn't win. Clinton lost.

My best bet is that a lot of the American people were sick to the back teeth about corruption in the political aristocracy on both sides of the political divide.

GOP leader Mitch McConnell:


That was the head of Trump's own party in the Senate, who had just voted to acquit him!

Kinda makes acquittal hard to tell from conviction if someone for acquitting you talks about you that way.


Does anyone know why he voted to acquit him if those are his views?


My best bet is political solidarity.

If he felt political solidarity, why did he criticize Trump so harshly on that speech?

The question is basically why is he not consistent? On the one hand, he makes that speech where he criticizes Trump. On the other hand he votes to acquit him.

Probably for the same reason Ford pardoned Nixon.

I'm sure ignoring such a large portion of the population, who felt that Mr Trump was their best option, will work...I mean, they wouldn't end up resorting to someone worse if they were further ignored, would they?

Just because some people feel theat the "other side" doesn't wish to "improve people's lives" doesn't make that true: It could simply be that each side sees the issue in a different way, so their approach seems "bad" from the other side - And without sitting down, discussing issues and seeking common ground, the divide will increase.

He said it's is unconstitutional to convict a former president.

He said it's his duty to put the Constitution first.

Pretty much everyone predicted he would be acquitted, because politics.

Interesting moment for Republicans now. May end up tearing themselves apart over the whole thing.

Prediction - Either him or a family member will be the Republican nominee in 2024.

Would be madness to put another Trump up for election. There is a reason why record numbers of Americans voted him out.

Could anyone please tell me the logic behind the Republican party allowing Trump to run again and thus split their vote come the next election?

I just like how Mitch McTurtle's actions kinda don't match his words. He says trump is guilty but at the same time votes to acquit him. Actions tend to speak louder than words so I hear...or is that fake news to now?
