It ended as I thought it would--Republicans acquitting the former president of impeachment in the face of evidence that shocked even me.
But 7 Republican Senators had to courage to vote with 50 Democrats to convict.
God bless them and their integrity.
Mitch McConnell spent over 15 minutes explaining that 'impeachment' means "remove from office" and he had to vote against it while excoriating the former president in much of his speech.
Politics always prevails over 'justice' these days.
But now we move on. I believe the trial turned many people's minds and hearts. Just to discover how violent the mob had been was enough to make a lot of us ashamed to be in a country where the former president would unleash that crowd on the elected leaders and vivid symbol of our democracy.
