Yep. Pretty telling, imo, that the Dem House manager forthrightly took the "blame" for that as well.In this country: people who don't understand senate rules
There is a rule that says no other business can take place during an impeachment. The Republicans decided that when witnesses were going to be called, it was time to invoke that rule. Senate rules require 51 senators to change them. Pretty clearly says senators and not the VP tie breaking vote. Simple as that.
As in: no COVID checks if the Dems call witnesses. So...
"There's no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day. No question about it," the Kentucky Republican said Saturday. "The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president."
"And having that belief was a foreseeable consequence of the growing crescendo of false statements, conspiracy theories and reckless hyperbole which the defeated president kept shouting into the largest megaphone on planet earth," he continued.
But despite all the criticism, he said he voted "not guilty" because he believes Trump is "constitutionally not eligible for conviction" given that he is no longer president.
I sure the fuck don't but I get what you're saying. It's not ballsy in terms of actual courage, but it does indeed take a set to be that brazen. Hope he gets hit by a bus.
I read the other day a sitting president loses an average of 27 seats in the House per election, so that is in peril, but I believe the GOP is running D on the Senate.And yet the vast majority of Republicans continue to worship him. Lost them the House in 2018. The White House last year. The Senate this year. But more than 90% of them just can't help themselves.
Yo, @JN News, you're the resident Jesus freak, right? Isn't there something in the book of Exodus about this?
