It looks the Senate will vote politically. It is not really a trial; their verdict has been reached before starting. The Republicans need desperately to hold the power of the Executive, and the Senate. They forgot about the oaths they took when they arrive to the Senate. They just don t care! They are just a bunch of losers against Trump in the Primaries 2016. However, they support him. Why? Because they feel defeated and need the dictator s support to continue holding their office to profit from it.

Our only hope is there are still some people in congress (Senate) who care!

I really need to say. The Republicans senators are doing what Trump wants. If and I hope he gets thrown out on his ass, and if he does get thrown out do these senators really think that Trump care about any of them? NO. He will go back to his own ego world of Trump. Of course that's after he has his tweets and his temper tantrums but do these senators really think that Grump cares about them? He would throw any of them under the bus. Go ask the guys that are in prison that knew Trump and went to jail for him.

I just don’t understand how Ted Cruz stands up for Trump. Trump insulted Cruz’ s Fathers reputation saying he might have been involved with the JFK assassination. I would have slapped him silly! Cruz should have just been done with Trump for the rest of Trump’s administration! Instead he knelt before Trump! Coward!

Trump gave aid to a country who meddled in a US election ? No. He held it back because they didn't want to,and then begrudgingly approved the aid once he realized the game was up. Trump,Cruz,Giuliani,Barr and the rest of the criminal regime need to be purged and punished.

Although the Republicans in general have indeed absconded from their public duty, the behaviour of some of these minions -- not only Ted Cruz, but Barr, Devin Numbnuts, and Rudy as well -- is a lot harder to understand. Why do these guys abase themselves, and put themselves so clearly in harm's way just to serve the Puppenfurher. Then it hit me. There is only One explanation for that kind of slavish behaviour, and it involves Trump, Cruz, and an Oval Office recreation of that scene in GOT Season 3, when Ramsay Bolton got . . . . and then Theon Greyjoy's . . . . and he put it in a decorated box . . . . Get the picture? That's right. I said it. And the more you think about it, the more sense it makes. Apart from Rudy, who is his own special kind of crazy, all of the others cut pretty much the same . . . ummm... profile. BillyBarr's blubbery torso is perhaps the most extreme of the group, but hey -- look at any one of these guys, and compare their build to that of Lord Varys . . . . well . . . ? it should be pretty obvious who owns the little box with Ted's golden marbles inside.

Trump still has the power to have GOP candidates primaried. This is the whole problem in a nutshell. Trump's constituent voters refuse to be swayed by evidence, and seem to back him no matter what he does, giving Trump the power to hold influence over a controlling portion of the GOP electorate. It's like Trump has a gun to the head of each GOP candidate up for reelection.

There is a reason CNN has lost a lot of viewership over the last few years. Can't trust anything coming out of their mouth. Check out these URL;s.

Politico was able to find evidence Ukraine interfered in the 2016 U.S. election. The left wing media wants you to ignore it. The same intelligence agencies that lied about weapons of mass destruction and Assad chemical attacks are the same ones that want you to believe Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. election w/o telling us what the evidence is. Let that skin in.

The republican Congress better make a choice,Trump or their jobs and country because Trump is getting impeached in the house.Even if they don't impeach him in the Senate,it can't be good to go into an election having a criminal as your candidate.He is a traitor,and those who support him are as well.
