Not only do the Rethuglican senators ignore the proceedings at the impeachment “trial,” they met with the defense team for a strategy session. This shows you exactly how seriously they take their oath of office, their oaths as members of this mockery of a jury, and the Constitution.

If they don’t convict the person who made this speech

We’re going walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators, and congressmen and women. We’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong.
We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.
Today we will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections, but whether or not they stand strong for our country, our country. Our country has been under siege for a long time, far longer than this four-year period.

Pumpkin, Jan 6

…to a right-wing mob, of inciting the Capitol insurrection that day…

…then they should just strike the Impeachment Clause from the Constitution…

…because it’s a fucking joke.
