REPORT: Democrat prospects of convicting Trump in Senate Trial Fading Away

According to a new report form the Associated Press, Democrats hopes of convicting Trump on his Senate impeachment trial are fading away.

The report states “a growing number of Republican senators say they are opposed to the proceeding, dimming the chances that former president will be convicted on the charge that he incited a siege of the U.S. Capitol.”

Senator Rand Paul tweeted Tuesday:

The Senate just voted on my constitutional point of order.

45 Senators agreed that this sham of a “trial” is unconstitutional.

That is more than will be needed to acquit and to eventually end this partisan impeachment process.

This “trial” is dead on arrival in the Senate.

Senator Marco Rubio said “I think the trial is stupid, I think it’s counterproductive.”

He added “the first chance I get to vote to end this trial, I’ll do it” because he believes it would be bad for the country and further inflame partisan divisions.

Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., said in an interview with the AP he hopes evolving clarity on the details of what happened the day of the U.S. Capitol riot  “will make it clearer to my colleagues and the American people that we need some accountability.”
