Most — not all — of the Republican Party is not paying attention to the dramatic impeachment trial of Donald Trump. The GOP Senators are to be jurors in this trial; instead some of them chose not to listen or look at any of the prosecution’s presentations, which was very powerful and emotional. Some, including Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz, are even assisting the defense.
The blinders they are wearing are Trump blinders. They are blocking their own ears. These GOP members who are not going to convict Trump are only looking out for their own re-election and they have no spine. They are afraid of a man who incited violence over the course of four years, they are afraid of losing any power they have.
It’s sad. Trump will not be convicted, we need 17 GOP members to join the Democrats and some of their colleagues in the vote to convict, and we won’t get that. But it is important that we impeached Trump if only to show the world that so many of us in the US are outraged and horrified by his behavior. Trump is a dangerous man and must be held accountable, and hopefully stopped for holding any more power.
