Effectively, immediately, 44 out of fifty Republican senators voted that this Senate impeachment trial proper now shouldn’t be taking place in any respect, voting basically that this trial might have solely occurred whereas Trump was nonetheless president, regardless that they themselves had been those who blocked that from taking place after they had been in cost. They had been those who insisted that there can be no trial whereas Trump was in workplace. They now say as a result of he wasn’t tried whereas he was in workplace, he shouldn’t be tried in any respect. They won’t enable him to be tried whereas he’s president, and they won’t enable him to be tried after he’s president, and that’s how they roll. And that’s what we all know.

First it was too quickly, now it’s too late
