Trump will again be acquitted by the Senate

I have zero interest in debating whether Donald Trump should have been impeached by the House of Representatives, which he was today.

You know what I think, and I know what you think. There’s no reason to discuss it.

At some point over the next week, the Senate will begin the trial. It will end in acquittal. There’s no way 17 Republicans — and I’m presuming all 50 Democrats will find him guilty — will support a guilty verdict.

Trump will then go into the history books as the first (and we can hope last) president to ever be impeached — and acquitted — twice.

  1. Yes, you are right if on the day the Senate votes is exactly as it is today and nothing happens between now and then. I think we all have to stop thinking like pundits and start anticipating that anything can happen. The longer this takes to go to trial and verdict in the Senate, the more investigative reporting and the FBI can tell us what, precisely, happened and whether there was any internal coordination. Also, your prediction assumes there will be no more violence at the capitol. There will be 15,000 troops there. And if a conflict occurs with all those weapons, we may find ourselves in a much different scenario than you describe here. This is not to criticize you. But I have been stating the same thing to others. We all have to stop thinking like pundits and start anticipating anything. We can hope that we can meet any threat to democracy.
